    What are these cocky`s worth in the UK?

    Gang Gang Cockatoo`s,one of the most beautiful parrots we have imo.
    I found them feeding on dandelions roots in the paddock today and went home for my camera.
    I love to see them any time and look forward to them arriving as they are not full time residents in this part of bush Victoria.
    I know that the UK has some very serious parrot keepers/breeders and thought I would ask the question on value.
    In fact are there any GG`s in the UK?

    It amazes me as to how many Aussies are lurking on this forum as members of the Secret Squirrel Society.

    Ha ha quote "Raymond Sawyer, a spokesman for the Avicultural Society, from which Gardiner resigned after his arrest, described him as an engaging, quiet enthusiast."He is a charming man," he said. "He was always very honest as a treasurer. He obviously had a bit of a brainstorm. We rather wondered where the money was coming from.EQ

    Love those pictures John. One of my favourites too.
    It seems that they have a varied diet. These were 100m from the ocean.

    I feel you could only buy them if you were a specialist collector and given a hyacinth macaw will run you upwards of 30k I wager these wI'll go for a large sum.
