What is an M2?
Moluccan cockatoo....fairly standard lingo amongst a lot of cockatoo owners..."Cockatoo" is shortened to " 'too" or "2", so a Moluccan cockatoo is an "M2", a Goffin cockatoo a "G2", a palm cockatoo a "P2", etc.
You are far more brave than I...17 parrots....that must be one noisy house at daybreak. My next, and likely last, addition to my flock will be the Hyacinth macaw I am presently on a waiting list for, although I would not mind an African grey (something else that is often shortened to "TAG" or "CAG").
