Default Making a Galah of himself

This is Mr Biggles.
Chele and I rescued him about a week before Christmas after he was attacked by a group of Magpies.

He could fly but not real well and landings were a bit rough.

I think he had a real bad day. Jumped out the nest a bit too early, spend all day looking for something to eat and finally had the snot beaten out of him by a bunch of Pt Adelaide Supporters.

He was sitting by the side of the road and we were a bit worried that he would get run over so Chele asked me to try and catch him. Iím not sure if Chele doesnít know how hard a Galah can bite or if she just figured it was worth the risk seeing it was my finger.

Anyway, I put my hand down towards him and he jumped on. I donít think he cared anymore after the day he had.

He can still fly, we havenít cut his wing, but he chooses to sit on me most of the time and have his head scratched. He has a perch inside and a cage but he only sleeps in his cage or when Iím not home so he is safe from the dogs.

Anyway, meet Mr Biggles.

Steve

Sounds like the bird was hand reared Ticky and has escaped possibly even captive bred.

A wild Galah would not jump onto your arm trust me.

Read up on it's feeding do's and don'ts.

I have hand reared a couple of parrots including a Galah.
Its unlikely he was hand reared as there was no food stuck to his feathers and I couldn't get him to take any food. although he likes being with me he is very skittish and afraid of anyone else.

it is possible he was born in captivity and escaped but it's also possible he was tied and hungry and had had a really bad day and just decided to take a chance. Who knows.

he is becoming a good mate anyway.
