"We have a 9 year old citron cockatoo that we inherited from a cousin. Toulouse (female) is a very sweet bird. She is one of two birds in this family -- we also have an african grey. Toulouse is quiet except when it is time for the lights to be off for her to go to sleep (thankfully we go to bed about the same time so that isn't a problem). The move between owners I believe was stressful for her -- citrons don't like change because of how they bond with their owners. Thankfully she developed a good bond with my partner. She is out of her cage most of the day since I work from home. She won't come to me -- in fact I think she tolerates me. Still, she is a joy to have and an absolutely beautiful bird. As I mentioned she has bonded with my partner and allows her to hold her, pet her, etc. We have had her now about a month and a half and are hoping that she continues to grow comfortable in her new home. It has been a huge change for her. We also had to change her diet since the previous owner feed her mostly seeds and she came to us overweight. Citrons are great birds. They need a lot of STRUCTURED attention. If you can do that I would highly recommend this breed over any other cockatoo breed. If not, steer away from cockatoos."
