Jericho is a show quality Moluccan cockatoo or as sometimes known as a Salmon-crested cockatoo. He is 12 years old and in need of a loving home. He is light peach in color with a bright orange crest. Banded and domestically bred, he is a companion bird and is happiest with people around, so plan to spend time with him daily.
Jericho loves to play and talks like a human. His enunciation is not always perfect, but the inflection in his voice and his sentence structure sounds weirdly realistic.... (read more) When someone rings the doorbell, he sounds off with a realistic dog-bark that will crack you up! He likes to eat at the table, romp around the house, spend time with his humans. When I make coffee in the morning he makes noises like an espresso machine. He is pretty quiet for a Moluccan (or any cockatoo for that matter).
If you have experience with large parrots, you will love Jericho. But, if you're new to big birds, a Moluccan may not be the bird for you.
After a brain tumor and partial blindness, I can no longer care for him properly. His re-homing fee is a steal at $1,550 and even includes his cage, rolling stand, custom-made hanging perch, and a large bag of parrot kibble.
