Cockatoos are large-bodied parrots with a crest of feathers on top of the head that stands erect when they are alarmed or excited. These natives of Australia and surrounding islands are treasured as desirable companions because of their intelligence and incredibly affectionate nature. A Galah is a nice bird to keep as a pet if it gets the proper care and housing. They’re small, making it easier to give them a nice aviary or big cage. Cockatoo parrots are high maintenance both physically and emotionally, as they demand a lot of attention and much time outside their cages.
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.
When buying a cockatoo there are many important factors. The most important is the health of the bird and if the species of cockatoo and the personality of this particular bird fits you. But after that it is important to know the purchase price of a cockatoo. Of course you don’t want to pay more than you should!
