    I recently accepted a young Galah to handraise (it's a long story, I have handraised native birds before so don't come for me). It has been with me for about 8-9 weeks now & I didn't have any problems with it so far. As recently as yesterday, it was screaming & flapping wings being all excited...

    Male vs. Female behavior in Galahs

    Is there a difference between male and female Galahs when it comes to behavior? For example, ringnecks and cockatiels show distinctive behavior where males do a “dance” with heart wings and females bend and chirp when trying to mate. what about cockatoos, and RB2s in particular?

    Galah or Goffin Breeders?

    I live in Florida and I hope to find a fairly affordable ($1,500 or less) cockatoo breeder of the goffins or galah species. I am willing to see breeders who ship too! I’ve been doing a ton of searching but all I keep finding are scam sites.... thanks in advance for any help!
