Rose-breasted or galah cockatoos are one of the most widespread and easily available of cockatoos in Australia. It is one of the most sociable companion birds.
The galah cockatoo is fairly popular as pets because of its abundance, personality, and overall striking features. Having a long-lived bird like the galah will require a long time commitment from your side, however, or else, the bird will cease to be in sound mind and health.
A large outdoor aviary with sufficient flying space should be provided for your pet. If unaffordable, go for as big a cage you can get. Throw in some accessories for the enrichment of the bird, like perches, toys, chewable and destructible, mineral blocks, etc.
Temperament & Behavior
Galahs enjoy and long for the company of their owners. They are prone to form bonds with a specific individual but exposing them to a varied group of people from an early age can get them to become more social. Without adequate attention, they can become rather aggressive and unpleasant.
A hand-reared rose-breasted cockatoo will start to consider itself more a human than a bird, and when startled, excited or angry, a galah will warn you amply with the show of the crest, which becomes erect. This trait of their behavior can be easily avoided if the bird has enough toys to play with.
Both sexes of the galah cockatoo are good talkers. The males especially can be taught to talk very easily.
Feeding: What do galahs eat
A parrot mix, made up of various dried fruits, seeds, nuts, should be fed to the bird. In addition, fresh vegetables, fruits, and branches with leaves can also be provided for chewing purposes.
Galahs need to be bathed regularly because they have more dandruff than other species of cockatoos. Nails and the beak will be trimmed on their own if you have provided good perches.
