Eleanora Cockatoos for Sale
The Eleonora cockatoo, Cacatua galerita Eleonora, also known as medium Sulphur-crested cockatoo, is very affectionate and will usually form a close bond with their owners. They typically love to be cuddled and snuggled as well. Because of their high intelligence, they can often be taught many tricks and are not uncommon in pet shows where parrots perform for audiences.

They should be allowed out of their cages regularly, though they should be closely supervised, as they are curious and known to roam.
