Male cockatoos and cockatiels *will* sit on eggs, fyi.

I had read that... (been reading voraciously since we got him) - but it does seem very intense... He has since added a second "egg" - another small ball he pulled off of another toy. To keep the first one company? I read that they usually have 2-3 eggs, so maybe one just wasn't enough...
He has taken to spending until around 2 in the afternoon obsessively sitting on his eggs, but then from 2-ish to bedtime, he is social as usual. He used to (for the first couple of weeks) like to play by himself in the mornings and be social later in the day (which works out well). Now he does not play with his toys much in the morning.
What I read said that it is around 28 days that they incubate the eggs, so what happens then (in about 2 weeks)? Will instinct tell him it is over and unsuccessful and it is time to move on? Will he be depressed? These are the things that keep us up at night now...

Nope, he is an Ubmrella - all white with just a little yellow under the wings.

Ahhh, okay now I see that. It's hard to tell when their crests aren't up. I knew there was another 'all white' one but couldn't think of what it was called. I must be getting old or something, or turning into a 'galah' meself! :tearlaugh:

If I could remember all of the things that I have forgotten - have to wait for Alzheimers, I guess... (though my favorite line is "I wish I knew now what I thought I knew then...")

I am thinking about trying to design a crest for SBR's Parrot that accurately reflects Benjie's crest (the SBR sulfur crest comes the closest, but not big enough or arrayed the same) - it is dramatic and amazing. Makes him about 6 inches taller!
He is such a hoot when he gets mad or just excited. He can do things with his head, body and feathers that would have made Linda Blair jealous (a la Exorcist)!

Lol...have you ever seen a Palm Cockatoo, Howy. Now there is a bird that looks might formidable when he gets upset. They're huge charcoal grey birds anyway, and have like a 4-5 inch beak that looks like an awl on the end. A real 'can opener' if you will. They have reddish pink cheek patches but when they get upset, they turn very red and the surrounding cheek feathers flare out as does the 5-6 inch crest on their heads.

I have seen an Umbrella with it's crest up and you're right! It's quite impressive but not like a Sulfur's crest.
