The Galah (Rose-breasted Cockatoo) FAQ

Hi I am having major issues with bird. He is just turned 1 year old and is molting. Since he started molting he has become afraid of everything, will not step up at all and will screech and jump off his perch for no apparent reason. You also need to know that a vet basically butchered his wings so the bird cannot even glide, he drops like a rock. The more I learn about these the more it appears they need to be able to fly.

Also, after reading your FAQs it appears these birds should be on a parrot seed diet, not on what I am feeding based on the vet and the store I bought him from. He is currently on a diet of hard food that is different colors, fired guitars and vegetables.

I will stop there. Any advice you can offer would be great. Thank you. David Holder
