Cockatoo guarding chocolate eggs

Pippa has been through a 'maternal stage'

A cockatoo at a wildlife sanctuary has spent a fortnight trying to hatch a bowl of chocolate eggs.

Pippa has been protecting the chocolates at Nuneaton and Warwickshire Wildlife Sanctuary since she was taken outside, put on a table and saw them.

Her owner, Geoff Grewcock, said: "She went straight over, climbed on the creme eggs and that was it. She thinks they're her eggs.

"Until she clicks they're not real eggs, we'll just leave her there."


Easy to understand. I get that way about chocolate all the time.

This just reinforces the fact that birds are NOT domesticated. They are wild animals who aren't "helped" in the least by being Companion Animals to humans. In many ways, this is very sad.

I agree J.A.N.Barb. In the mere fact that they FLY seems cruel to cage them.
