I aquired 2 galahs last weekend. Fred is at least 9 years old and can talk a little Italian as well as English. He is such a showoff and loves attention. Seems he's taken a real liking to me. I was also given the aviary that Fred was living in as well as his breeding log. The people I got him from have 2 of his offspring but didn't want any more birds and they were worried about Fred not having a mate for this breeding season. The hen was a rescue but I think she was someones pet that escaped or was let go as she can talk a little. I have no idea how old she is but she's a very good size. Haven't got a name for her yet though. I was calling her Wilma like in the Flinstones but it doesn't suit her. She's quite inquisitive but keeps her distance.
