I'm a New Potato

Hi All

My name is Francine and I’m from Western Australia.

I’ve recently purchased a hand raised Pink and Grey Galah (Rose Breasted Cockatoo for the Non-Aussies).

He’s still in his egg right now and I wont get him until he’s been fully weaned.
I’m doing all the research I can and wanting to give him the best life possible.

Potato is his name (actually it’s Captain Potato Salad, but we’re going with Potato), my 10 year old son named him. We’re so in love already and he’s not even hatched yet.

I just thought I’d jump on here and introduce myself. I’ll be searching and stalking through the topics trying to expand my knowledge.

I’d love to get to know you and hear about your own feathered lovelies.
If you’ve got any best kept secrets or hints and tricks feel free to share them. I’m all too eager and willing to learn.

Thank you for having me.

Kindest of regards,
Francine

@michael Thanks for having me. I’m researching so hard right now. I cant wait for him to hatch. I’m seeing all the wild Galahs around my home (I live in suburbia but the wild population is strong) and it’s making me ‘clucky’ if you will.
