ChooChoo is a pretty Lesser Sulphur Crested Cockatoo. Her foster says she is the quietest Cockatoo they have ever seen. She is very tame and sweet. The only thing she says is "hello." Her prior owner acquired her in 2000 from a family member who could no longer care for her. She is on a basic pelleted diet, but she loves cooked noodles, beans, muffins, and just about anything else she has been given.
ChooChoo loves to chew on cardboard and soft wood. One of her favorite pastimes is to sit on your lap and get scritches. Like all Cockatoos she has a "need to chew" and can be destructive. But this is mostly focused on her toys.
Her prior owners were unable to keep her because of an upcoming move. But they describe her as very sweet. Her foster parents heartily agree.
ChooChoo's approximate hatch date is unknown, and her adoption donation is $600.
