We are the owners of a Rose Breasted Cockatoo, or 'Galah' as they are called in their native Australia. Ours will be two years old in March and is called 'Pip'...short for 'Pretty in Pink', of course! Anyway, they are a very alert, affectionate and playful breed, demanding constant attention and companionship...which can be a bit much sometime, especially when you've come home after a long day's work and just want to relax. They're not big talkers, unfortunately, but having watched a few videos on Youtube, I was able to train him to say, "scratch" like the bird in this first video. The second one, 'Hello', I'm still working on with him.
