I’ve never been much of a bird person. Don’t get me wrong, I like birds, I think some of them have beautiful plumage, but I just never thought of them as being pets with a whole lot of personality the same way that cats, pigs, or dogs have.
That is until I met my aunt’s Cockatoo. She definitely changed my mind about birds as pets. They actually have loads of personality.
One 26-year-old Moluccan Cockatoo named Max is quite the entertainer. He has his own YouTube channel where he frequently videos of him living his best birdlife.
But what really made this Cockatoo so famous is his ability to perform a spot-on chicken impression.
As seen in the video Max is enjoying a fine spring day in Canada while pretending to be a chicken. Apparently, he likes to do this when he’s happy.
Because of his incredible chicken impression, he’s been deemed the original Cluckatoo online.
Max is of a species that is also known as the Salmon-crested cockatoo, and they have a trademark pink crest. These birds a very smart as well as quite large.
They can be legally bred in captivity, but it’s illegal to take them out of the wild.
These cockatoos have an expected lifespan of 80-100 years, so it’s safe to say that Max will be making chicken noises for decades to come.
