She’s gorgeous, a Moluccan cockatoo with ivory plumage and satiny, coral-colored crest feathers that are almost flamingo pink on the underside. Like many birds of her kind, she was adopted and rejected, several times before finding a home at the Funny Farm. Her former owners found her too demanding, too destructive, and too loud, with a high-pitched cry that can sound like a fire alarm. Nikki was only six years old, when she came to the Funny Farm. She doesn’t have many language skills (or more correctly, language-mimicking skills). She says “hello” in the most beguiling way, in a voice like Mae West’s. She also has learned to say the names of some of our dogs. When anyone in the house laughs, she laughs along. You’re welcome to visit our Nikki at the Funny Farm.
