Yellow Crested Cockatoo For Sale  Available For Adoption 

The yellow-crested cockatoo is found in wooded and cultivated areas of East Timor and Indonesia’s islands of Sulawesi and the Lesser Sundas. It is easily confused with the larger and more common sulphur-crested cockatoo, which has a more easterly distribution and can be distinguished by the lack of pale yellow coloring on its cheeks (although some sulphur-cresteds develop yellowish patches). The yellow-crested cockatoo nests in tree cavities.

The eggs are white and usually two in a clutch. The yellow-crested cockatoo (Caparrotua sulphurea) also known as the lesser sulphur-crested cockatoo, is a medium-sized (about 34-cm-long) cockatoo with white plumage, bluish-white bare orbital skin, grey feet, a black bill, and a retractile yellow or orange crest. The sexes are similar.The incubation is shared by both parents. The eggs are incubated for about 28 days and the chicks leave the nest about 75 days after hatching.Also, the yellow-crested cockatoo’s crest is a brighter color, closer to orange. The citron-crested cockatoo, which is a subspecies of the yellow-crested cockatoo, is similar, but its crest is clearly orange.


Care and feeding


A roomy cage is required unless the bird is to be let out for extended periods. Many birds can spend most of their time on a play pen or parrot perch. They eat a variety of seeds, nuts, fruits, and commercial pellets, as well as the same nutritional foods humans eat. The Rose-breasted Cockatoo should be fed a less oil in their diet (which comes from sunflower seeds and other oily seeds) than other cockatoos since they can develop fatty tumors known as lipomas.

As an added source of advanced vitamins, you should introduce fresh common fruits and green vegetables. Rose Breasted Cockatoos enjoy an occasional bath and they should be encouraged – they help prevent dangerous skin and feather diseases which can happen to most parrots


Maintenance of Yellow Crested Cockatoo For Sale


The basic cage care includes daily cleaning of the water and food dishes and wiping off the feather dust from the bars and perches. Twice weekly change the bottom trays and replace the soiled litter. Weekly you should wash all the perches and dirty toys and monthly you should clean the entire cage. A total hosing down and disinfecting of an aviary and flight should be done twice a year, replacing anything that needs to be freshened, such as old dishes, toys, perches, and the sand on the floor.


Social Behaviors


In the wild, all cockatoo species live together in flocks. Some species may flock in groups of only 8-10 birds while others species will flock in the thousands. This high socialization need has a profound affect on cockatoo behavior. If they don’t get the necessary attention and interaction they can quickly become bored. A bored cockatoo will often develop bad habits like screaming and feather plucking, and these habits are extremely difficult to break.
A Galah is energetic and full of silly behavior like most other cockatoos, but it is also quite affectionate. In any case, with a pet like this, you are guaranteed an endless supply of love, fun and entertaining company!




Affectionate and friendly, the Galah cockatoo has a reputation for being a loving pet. Unlike umbrella cockatoos, these birds are not big on cuddling. But, they are accustomed to handling.

If you are interested in owning a galah, make sure that you have plenty of free time to spend with your pet. It is a sensitive bird, requiring a lot of attention and interaction from its owners. As a flock-dwelling bird by nature, if its adopted human flockmate ignores it, the rose-breasted cockatoo can become depressed, angry, and destructive.

    Just the sweetest baby. Our new Yellow Crescent cockatoo has bonded with my son in just one day. They must be soul mates! The bird came in an amazing box with plenty food and water, it was a little scared at first because of the travel. This breeder is amazing, she communicated with me every step of the way. Highly recommended!

    I have nothing but positive things to say about The Parrot Shop! I was looking to add a bird to my home. As a first-time bird owner, I needed a lot of direction. Ana helped me pick out a cage and Frank helped me choose a beautiful cockatoo. Fahad and Rana are extremely welcoming, knowledgeable, and passionate about their birds. They genuinely love what they do and you can tell! I absolutely recommend The Parrot Shop for any bird lover in the area
