Cockatoos are very dusty birds.
They put off a very fine dust that wisps around like pixie dust.
Some people are sensitive to bird dander, and wind up
giving their birds up because of it. However, there are
many ways to combat allergies so you can keep your bird.
If you live in a dry climate, consider having a way to make
the air in your home more humid for your birds so they
don't feel as itchy. A bit of humidity also helps with dander.

We were lucky enough to get an IQair unit as a Holiday Gift.
We realize it's a pricey unit, but there are cheaper alternatives.

Generally, it's best to let your bird/s dry off naturally,
but during colder times of the year, sometimes it's
necessary to assist in the drying process by getting them
mostly dry with a blow dryer.
