If you can find one I recomend a handraised baby longbill corrella. Keep an eye on here:

you could try fish fur and feather in colchester rd kilsyth i know its heaps out of the way for you but they may know somewhere closer to you. I have even seen african greys quakers and conures and all sorts there. Just a note. Try to talk to a manager. . . They have a lot of schoolkids work there part time being a large place. Cheers julie

Kellyville pets sell hand raised birds. They had a corella x galah a few years back. I have never seen anything so pretty. It was a peach coloured galah with a corella beak. Amazing.
They are a fantastic pet shop, very organised and clean. If I was going to buy a bird thats where I would go.
I havent been there for sometime but I would think it is still the same.

hi rayan,
corella x galah sounds like a nice bird, were im from every cocky ,corella or galah are birds from the wild, i havent heard of anyone breeding them here , i have heard of people traping them for the pet market,

is the shop your talking about in the city ?

regards jase

It in Kellyville NSW. It used to be the outskirts of Sydney.Near Castle Hill. Now with development its Sydney.
They have a website which gives an overview of what they are about.Im guessing its http://www.kellyvillepets.com.au
A google search will find them. Its is huge.
Im am sure the birds would all come from licenced breeders.Not cheap though.
They also sell other odd pets like bird eating spiders and scorpions :shock:
