Rose-Breasted Galah Cockatoo Parrot


The rose-breasted galah cockatoo, usually known in its native Australia as the galah,
may be close to the perfect parrot species when it comes to suitability as a pet—at
least for an owner who likes to play a lot with a pet bird. Extremely intelligent and
enormously fond of humans, the bird readily can readily learn a wide vocabulary when
trained diligently and is able to learn other complex tricks as well. As a native to
the harsh conditions of central Australia, the rose-breasted cockatoo is also unusually
hardy and free of many of the diseases and disorders common to other parrots.


Affectionate and friendly, the rose-breasted cockatoo has a reputation for being a loving pet. It is a sensitive bird, however, and requires quite a bit of attention and interaction from its owners. Those interested in owning a rose-breasted cockatoo should make sure that they have plenty of free time to spend with their new pet. This is a flock-dwelling bird by nature, and if its adopted human flock-mates ignore it, the rose-breasted cockatoo will become forlorn or angry.

A mature rose-breasted cockatoo is typically 12 to 15 inches in length from the beak to the tip of the tail feathers. It normally weighs between 10 and 14 ounces.
Average Lifespan:

The rose-breasted cockatoo can live for up to 70 years in captivity, but the average lifespan is about 40 years.

Speech & Vocalizations

Galahs can learn to imitate human speech and other sounds. Whistles, ringing, and bells are some of the more common sounds these birds have been known to imitate. Galahs are loud screechers in the wild. They can sometimes be loud indoors too, although, unless they are bored or frightened, they are less likely to be overly vocal.
