"I have been given a citron-crested cockatoo by a family member who just couldn't for health reasons keep him any more. I named him big dude. He had pulled just about all his feathers out because he had lost his mate. My aunt passed away and gave him to her son who has now given him to me along with a green parrot. He has just started to fluff again. I can't wait to see how pretty he will be when his feathers come back in. He hasn't had any for`3 years. He does screech and hiss at me but he also loves to be petted. He shakes the door of the cage to get out, I was told to keep it padlocked because he can get out and he has when I change the water and food. Hilarious. He sees the keys and goes nuts. I have only had him for a week and I think he is the funniest thing I have seen in along time. I wish I knew what to do to tame him further. He bows his head to be petted and he lets me rub his whole body, also he raises his wings to allow me to rub beneath them also. He appears to be really intelligent. It took him a whole three days to start imitating my alarm clock by beating his roost with his foot. Funny! Also the green parrot is basically viscious I am more afraid of it than big dude. "
