Rose Breasted Cockatoos for sale
Rose Breasted Cockatoo for sale is also called the “Galah” or the “Galah Cockatoo”. These parrots can be found in most parts of Australia, except for the most dry lands in the country. The birds tend to flourish in settled areas, including near ponds and watering tanks. Rose breasted cockatoos can grow up to 15 inches measuring from the beak to the tip of the tail feathers. Although the average lifespan is 30 to 50 years, this species of parrots can live up to 70 years if in good care.
These parrots might be considered a high maintenance pet. If occasionally neglected, the rose breasted cockatoo might become depressed or destructive. These birds like to group into larger flocks, frequently with Sulphur Crested Cockatoos. These social creatures like to nest in tree cavities, laying white eggs which incubate for about 25 days. Chicks leave the nest approximately 50 days after hatching. Cockatoos need nothing but the biggest of cages.
The more space that you provide for your feathered friend, the better in the long-term. At the very least, buy a cage about 90 x 70 x 120 cm. Consider adding a parrot stand or a Java tree so that your bird can enjoy climbs. Mind stimulating toys are a good idea. Buy bird puzzles, foraging toys, chewy toys, and anything else that will keep your parrot happy. Crimson breasted cockatoos are some of the loudest of all the parrots on the planet.
They sometimes make loud, screaming noises in communication with one another and in just having fun. Most Crimson breasted Cockatoos (Galah’s) are not very cuddly birds, but this tendency may vary by individual. A Galah can create a fairly high-pitched “Chet Chet” type sound in the wild. They make an even louder screech once threatened, when fighting, or when having fun. These birds are well-known as clever and can learn to talk, or even mimic people’s voices.
HOW TO CARE FOR A ROSE BREASTED COCKATOO
Rose breasted cockatoo for sale can tolerate variable temperatures but it should never get below freezing in their enclosure. Nail clipping may be required as will beak trimming if you cannot supply native pandanus nuts. These powder down parrots enjoy baths and should regularly get the opportunity to get wet. Molting is a steady process where the bird loses one to two feathers at a time.
Feeding should be with a high-quality pelleted diet with at least half of its diet consisting of fruits, nuts, and vegetables. Obtaining nuts from its natural environment can be very beneficial to your bird and help it keep its beak in good shape.
