Weight-500 to 600 grams

Description-Large white bird, with a yellow crest and yellow under the wings and tail.

Pet Quality- Can be a devoted pet, but you have to have experience with Cockatoos and must be able to devote at least one hour per day to them. They can be extremely loud and demanding and they are very intelligent, they can escape out of almost anything-even padlocks "if you give them the key!" If proper attention is not given, this can result in excessive screaming and feather picking.
