Origin and History

The galah is native to Australia, where it can be found in open grasslands and over much of the country. It has self-established in Tasmania. Galah cockatoos travel in large flocks, often in groups that also include sulfur-crested cockatoos. They will mate with other species of cockatoos.

Galahs are a familiar sight in urban areas. These birds tend to be more prevalent in settled areas because they eat cultivated crops and make use of artificial ponds and livestock watering troughs. Many farmers regard the birds as pests.

The name “galah” means “fool” or “clown” in the native Australian language Yuwaalaraay. This highly intelligent bird got the name for being a loud nuisance. The term “galah” is a slang, derogatory word in Australia that means a “loud-mouthed idiot.”

Affectionate and friendly, the galah cockatoo has a reputation for being a loving pet. Unlike umbrella cockatoos, these birds are not big on cuddling. But, they are accustomed to handling.

If you are interested in owning a galah, make sure that you have plenty of free time to spend with your pet. It is a sensitive bird, requiring a lot of attention and interaction from its owners. As a flock-dwelling bird by nature, if its adopted human flockmate ignores it, the rose-breasted cockatoo can become depressed, angry, and destructive.

Care and feeding of Rose breasted galah cockatoo for sale

A roomy cage is required unless the bird is to be let out for extended periods. Many birds can spend most of their time on a play pen or parrot perch. They eat a variety of seeds, nuts, fruits, and commercial pellets, as well as the same nutritional foods humans eat. The Rose- breasted galah Cockatoo should be fed a less oil in their diet (which comes from sunflower seeds and other oily seeds) than other cockatoos since they can develop fatty tumors known as lipomas.

When kept as pets, feed galahs a balanced diet. High-quality formulated pellets have been developed to meet all your bird’s nutritional needs. At least 50 percent of your bird’s diet should be in pellet form. The other half of their diet should be fruits and vegetables. Start by feeding 1/4 cup of pellets and 1/4 cup of fresh salad daily. Incrementally increase as needed.

  1. Absolutely a sweetheart. Link is such an Angel, not an aggressive bone in his body. He was healthy and sweet from the moment he arrived, even our Veterinarian was very impressed. We are so grateful to have him in our family. Pharell was great with his communication and it was evident from the 1st conversation how much he cared for his parrots. Pharell eased our nerves with FaceTime prior to sending him via a plane to us. We would highly recommend

  2. Just got both of my baby birds from Pharrell parrots and they are both the most beautiful, sweetest birds everrrr. Training is going well… beautiful, tame, and smart birds!! Highly recommend! I couldn’t be happier.
