  • Age: Unknown
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 5904213

Hello - Kasper here! I'm a female Lesser Sulphur Crested Cockatoo. Just in case there was any doubt as to my being a female, I occasionally lay eggs as a reminder. I was originally kept by a pet shop who felt I was not worthy of being sold due to my feather picking - can you believe that? The nerve of some people...! I was kept in the back room of the pet store for 20 years until the store owner?s daughter took pity on me and brought me home. She kept me for 5 years until it became apparent that I was extremely jealous of the new baby and that's when my mom felt it would be best for me to go to a home that could love me as much as she had.
