The Timor Cockatoos / Timor Sulphur-crested Cockatoos are adorable little Cockatoos from the Sunda islands. They are quiet compared to other Cockatoos and make great companions.
Like all Cockatoos, Timors love to chew and wooden toys are a must. Baths are also relished and helps keep feather dust to a minimum. A large parrot cage with lots of wooden toys is recommended. A devoted owner with time to devote to these beautiful little parrots is also in order. (Source: Rand B Aviary - Breeder and Parrot Connoisseur)
Like other cockatoos, the Timor Cockatoo usually makes its home in tree hollows.
Their natural diet consists of diverse food items, such as seeds, fruit and insects. In captivity, they should be provided with an good quality seed and nut mix, fresh fruits and vegetables.
