Description

Citron Cockatoos are beautifully colored, and have very sweet personalities which is why they are quickly becoming a popular companion bird. They are very affectionate birds, and want to be by their owner's side as much as possible. They're very social, and do require a lot of outside of the cage interaction with their owners, and their owners "flock" to maintain their emotional health. If a person plans on purchasing a Citron they should make sure they have enough time for them. Citrons that are neglected may resort to screaming and destructive behavior, so it's important that owners invest as much time as possible into their Citron.

Citron Cockatoos are not for inexperienced or first time bird owners. They need an owner who has plenty of time to spend with them. On average a Citron needs a minimum of 3 to 4 hours outside of cage play time a day.

They live 50 years, and some even older due to modern healthier diets, exercise, and mental stimulation. Citron Cockatoos are not a parrot for first time bird owners, and a lot of thought, and consideration should go
into the idea of getting one for a companion bird.
