Black Palm Cockatoo Breeding
When male Palm Cockatoos are ready for courtship, they will display their beautiful feathers by stretching them to their full height, and approach the female, while calling to them at the same time. The age of maturation in the Palm Cockatoo is about four years old.

The Palm Cockatoos lay only one egg per year. It takes anywhere from 30-35 days for their eggs to hatch, and the chick needs between 70-100 days before they are able to become almost the same height and weight of their parents. The chick will not emerge from its nest until approximately 100-110 days.

About two weeks after leaving its nest, the chick still is not able to fly and is forced to depend on its parents for another six weeks.

Breeding Season.

In captivity, the palm cockatoo has reproduced in every month of the year. This was recorded in the Palm Cockatoo Husbandry Manual Survey by Avicultural Breeding and Research Center (ABRC). New York Zoological Society's palm cockatoos at the Wildlife Survival Center produced eggs in all but two months of the year.

Other institutions show varied and sporadic breeding by their pairs throughout the year. This may be due to the fact that the palm cockatoos at the latter institutions are being housed indoors for part of the year.

Courtship.

Copulation of the palm cockatoo has been observed to occur primarily in the morning after sunrise. However, breeding behavior and copulation have also been observed during other periods of the day.

The male palm cockatoo approaches the female with his wings partially extended. The male's head is upright with his crest feathers fully erect and he bows several times before mounting the female. During this time, he is vocalizing with a very loud whistle. Palm cockatoos copulate like other psittacines, with the male balancing himself on the back of the female.

Like other black cockatoo species, the palm cockatoo lays only one egg per clutch, with an incubation period of 28 to 31 days from laying to pipping, with an additional 3 or 4 days to hatch.
