    Just know that a cockatoo is a LOT of bird compared to a lorikeet or quaker. Both size/noise wise and with the amount of mental stimulation/contact time you need to be able to provide. I am slowly adding species info to my listing on my site, takes a lot of time moving it from notebook onto the site though and I don't have much so slow going. I have a little on quakers though so check it out The Witty Parrot

    He's gorgeous Albino!!! What a stunning bird. Hmm maybe there's another bird on my list? Haha.
    Hows he going as far as handling, learning etc? If you don't mind me asking.

    Thanks :) yeah Majors deserve a spot on the wishlist that's for sure.
    He is such a sook now, he loves his cuddles and playtime, can be very affectionate at times but only to me or my mum, no one else can really touch him except on the odd occasion he'll let them give him a small scratch through the cage bars other then that he will eat them haha. I have taught him wave, shake (bobs head on cue), recall, bow (newest trick) and he's almost harness trained. This bird keeps me on my toes haha.

    Thanks also Stevo, I love ur two. :)

    I wouldn't call him an exotic, but my long billed corella sure is a loveable clown.

    This may be a very dumb question but may aswell be sure. Does anyone know whether plum-headed parakeets are illegal in Australia, specifically Victoria? I looked on the DSE licence list but couldn't seem to find them and assumed they were illegal but when I searched for them in google there were australian bird forums, pages and gumtree ads (yes not reliable at all) talking about them etc.
    Just thought I'd see if anyone knew. Maybe I was just having a bad look :/ haha

    Cheers guys!

    Not illegal. Not on the DSE licence list because they're exotic, not native.

    Beautiful guys and gals Sarah. Out of curiosity what do your hahns weigh in at? Up in Qld I have seen some large "hahns" that I think have had a bit of noble macaw mixed in with them at some stage. One in particular would be about 170g which is far outside the typical weight range of hahns.

    Yours look about the same as Elroy. He is 150ish grams (sometimes slightly more).
