It was an old trick of the bird poachers when they were taking the young
Majors from the nests to place young Galahs

in the nest so that the Majors would rear them and use the same hollow the
next year.

They were always active in N. S.W.  in the week of the Melbourne Cup they
would hand rear them and when fully grown would

walk up the gangplanks of the ships in Port Melbourne with them in a cage
that neatly fitted into a box of V. B. longnecks.

Customs checked the first guys box but never checked the guys walking behind
with a box on their shoulders.

Eventually caught out after many years.
