A newly weaned cockatoos in a new environment will often cry and whine and screech if its needs are not met. Stressed or unhappy cockatoos can become depressed and refuse to eat if they are allowed to remain hungry for any period of time at all. Offer to hand feed your new cockatoos once or twice a day, especially early in the day, regardless of its age, when it first comes into your home. This will reassure the cockatoos that it will be taken care of and loved. Continue offering to hand feed your goffin cockatoo for at least a week and possible two, depending on the individual goffin. If the new cockatoos does not appear to eat well on its own, continue the hand feeding until it does begin eating healthily on its own.
