I can't tell you a whole ton. But I know a man whose involved in training animals for the film industry and his citron cockatoo is the biggest camera lover of his flock. She'll do ANYTHING if she thinks it will make people take her picture :P and apparently she was the easiest of all of them to train for film. So... Don't know if that's helpful at all, but it's something!

I know they're highly intelligent, animated, curious, and engaging! And of course, they're very loud like all Toos! Lol. I love their cresties!

They are smart - reported to be much smarter than umbrellas and moluccans - but they are LOUD!

They are boarding a triton, or maybe is is a medium sulfer crested, can't prove it by me, at the store. It is the most obnoxious bird I have ever had the displeasure of hearing in my entire life!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

At any rate, that is a bit bigger than a citron, but I still think they can all get that loud. They are cute, though.


Thanks Shivani for the awesome siggy!

There is one at the store I bought Maxx from. He is a bird on consignment. Beautiful bird, and so friendly, and a little ham, always looking for attention. I chat with him everytime I am there. Wish I had the room and was not living in a condo. I would grab him in a sec.

Hey Abby, Did you hear about that Citron Cockatoo? I can ask questions about it if you would like. I briefly looked on the internet. Sound delightful, and not quite as noisy as the other cockatoos. Still noisier than a grey.

I can't honestly find much on them, though I've been bitten by one and I must say, that hurt!
