Rose Breasted Cockatoos

The Rose Breasted Cockatoo also known as the Galah comes from Australia and is about 13 to 14 inches in length. They are around the size of a Goffin Cockatoo but have a little longer tail then that of the goffin. Rose Breasted are one of the most colorful birds of the cockatoo species. Pale grey to medium grey back, light pink cap on the head that hides the crest that comes up and down when they communicate. A beautiful deep pink rose colored chest and face with a the grey rump and legs. A featherless eye ring of bare skin surrounds the eye like with most cockatoos. Mature adult birds have dark brown to almost black irises in the males and females are more of a reddish brown to red irises. Other than that both look alike. Both sexes talk and are a very social bird with a very outgoing personality. When showing affection they often sound as if they are purring like a cat, I find they walk around and do a little dance that closely resembles that of a pigeon. They are quite active and require a roomy cage, especially if they are left in the cage for long periods of time when their owners are away from home. They are very long lived if cared for properly, with the diet and roomy quarters they require.

The immature rosy is not as vibrant in color as that of the mature adults, with duller color and greyish breast, cap, crests brown irises and whitish bare eye rings that are not carunculated until adult hood.

It is very important to watch what you feed your rosy as they have a tendency to get over weight very prone to obesity and can easily have fatty liver syndrome, fatty tumors or lymphomas. They need a diet closer to what a cockatiel eats, with fresh veggies, fruit, sprouts and spray millet. Lots of sunflower or a fatty diet is not good for them.

Here is a rosy pictured in a watercress plant that is a safe edible plant, containing vitamins and minerals that are good for all birds.

Always make sure to wash all plants and veggies fed to your rosy.

Here pictured is a day one old Rose Breasted Cockatoo also called Galah. The down will be pink but is still wet against the baby cockatoo.

The egg tooth is visible and you can see the tiny toe nails are very white.

At this stage of life they look very much like a cockatiel baby, except are a bit larger plus the down will be pink in color.

They actually grow very fast and wean sooner than other cockatoos do much like a cockatiel.

Their eggs are actually a similar size to that of most goffin cockatoo eggs and of course are white too.
