(formerly Lesser Sulphur-crested Cockatoo)

Hatch date — October 5, 2023



The Yellow Crested (formerly Lesser Sulphur-crested) Cockatoo is a regal bird. It has white feathers with yellow underwings and a bright yellow crest. Males have black eyes and females have brown eyes. This is the smallest of the crested parrots and their average lifespan is 50-60 years, but they have been known to live 65 years or more.  They can mimic some speech, but aren’t the best talkers. They are extremely intelligent and affectionate. They thrive with a lot of attention, and you should plan to provide them with lots of enrichment.

In the right home, they make fantastic companion pets.
