I was interested to hear mention of pink colouring on sulphur crested cockatoos.   A friend of mine saw a pin one near Tamworth in NSW recently.   I'm wondering if they are getting into the feed supplement blocks that farmers have been feeding out to their stock throughout the drought.   They often have molasses or something similar in them, which may turn feathers pink?
Cheers Annabel
