Cockatoos range in size from medium to large.

This Eleanora sulphur crested is aptly named Eleanora. Previous plucking required her to wear a collar but now that she has been freed has blossomed into the cutest little birdie. She has even started talking, saying â€œhelloâ€, â€œhow you doingâ€ in a very sweet tiny voice. We are working on stepping up consistently with no bites and Iâ€™m sure she will catch on quickly. A very beautiful bird that has gained back all her feathers and who is now looking for her forever home.
SPEECH & SOUNDS
