Here she is at 36 days old, 250 grams, and still on 5 Feedings a day of the Zupreem Embrace about 35-40 mls each feeding. Shes a Hybrid- Goffin x Lesser Sulpher Crested Elanora. I know the genetic drowning of the Hys, however shes not a breeder bird and will never be. Her parents fell in love and after so many years they produced her. HEr Father is the Goffins and the Mother the Elanora. That is how I got her. SHe is their first offspring. I do not know of any other G2xLSC crosses. If anyone does can you have them contact me so we can share information on them, IE behaviors, traits, etc...

Thanks
James

She's beautiful! I wonder which parent she'll take after? Is her crest the Goffin, or Elenora type? How fun to watch her grow and develop.

What's the status of the parents? Did they hatch her out or was an incubator used?

Adorable! Please keep us updated how she turns out. I bet shes going to make a fantastic pet being she was handfed and use to you at such a young age :)

I'm loving all these updated photos of her!!! :thumbup: I've seen goffin hybrids before, but can't recall if any were with sulfur crested toos. I've seen, if I recall correctly, a goffin x muloccan hybrid, and here's a couple of images I stole off the internet years ago... wish I knew where I got them! (would love to get in contact with the owner!) Anywhere, the below pictures are of a goffin x citron - not same as Sierra, but "kinda" close.... (although I realize this too is pretty grey, so wonder if there's some other species in there?)
