A GALAH AS A PET

Like all species of cockatoo, these birds are capable of screaming very loudly, but in practice, they do not do this as often as other species of cockatoo. Most Galah’s are not very cuddly birds (unlike e.g. Umbrella Cockatoos) but of course, there are individual differences. A Galah cockatoo is very playful and a little hyperactive. They really thrive well with another cockatoo as a companion.
