Rose Breasted Males vs Females

Sponsored Links
So I've read that male rose breasted cockatoos make better pets than females. Is that true? And why? Do females get more hormonal and cranky (like humans, lol)? I know that's true of budgies, and I've heard it's the opposite with cockatiels, so I guess it is possible to be true for galahs as well. Please tell me of any experiences you've had with the personality differences between males and females. Which one is more likely to get upset and which one is more affectionate?

Re: Rose Breasted Males vs Females

im sorry i cant give exactly what your looking for but here goes! females will display nesting behavior in small dark places and there is the possibility of egg laying. pluss i think females tend to be more moody, thats the case with eclectuses, i also think it applies to other birds including galahs, because female birds will be very protective of a nesting space. hope i helped. btw female parrots just hats still make exepptional pets they just can be a little moody. most females bind better to male owners and males tend to bond better with female owners but their must be caution taken to prevent hormonal behavior. good luck!
my cat died at 3 years old due to invasive kideny cancer. he was highly anemic and his kidneys and blood work were off the charts, the vet said it was the worst he's ever seen. we had to put him down that day. up untill then, he showed no sings of illness that we could recognize, however he was a ticking time bomb and only the vet could see it. we thought he was just muscular, but it was just his bulging kideneys. animals hide illness! he only showed signs the day before he died, before this, he seemed completely normal, healthy, and his usual self. his name was maxie and he was my best friend, because we thought he was healthy we didnt take him for check-ups but had we cought it earlier he might have had a chance. we learned from this, we should have paid attention, take ALL your pets for check-ups so they can be helped early on before its too late.

Re: Rose Breasted Males vs Females

I can only speak for the 8-year-old male I own. I have known no others as well as I know my boy, who I bought from a great parrot-exculsive shop in my area just after he was weaned (and I visited him almost daily from hatching to weaning). But he is the most awesome pet in the world. I'm lucky in that he loves EVERYONE and is not a biter. He's incredibly social and is one of my birds that I can hand to even the most timid of visitor, who stands AMAZED and in wonder that he is so tame and gentle with them. He has won over more people to parrots than ANY of my other birds. He enjoys it so much that I taught him an array of tricks that he will perform on commandand my greatest joy is taking him to rehab facilities (where my godfather has spent a LOT of time these past few years) and using him to cheer people up with his routine. He's bright, cheerful and gregarious. He has never bitten anyone and has a HUGE, very clear vocabulary, better than any other bird in my household. The only "negative" to him is that he does spook easily and is most apt to fly off my hand at a startle of some kind. For that reason, he's the only bird in my flock that I keep wing-clipped. He gets depressed in a harness, so that ended up not being a viable option for this particular bird. Anyway, I know all parrots are variable, but my male Rosie is just an incredible bird. I wish you well with yours. Many blessings. . . .
