Both have green coverts and the tail looks similar the way the side feathers are white but then seem to turn blue, and how the middle feathers are a darker color. The feet are also dark while the beak is light. It also seems like the right size of a bird.
EDIT: nevermind, the nares seem very different

Syaoransbear, the nares of chicks may appear different then adults, so I don't think it's a bad guess at all!
My guesses definitely remain with rosella or the barnardius family!
Do to the description given, I'm leaning torwards a rosella, however.
Galahs do not have green, blue or red colorations. They most especially do not have blue in the tail feathers. We can rule cockatoos/cockatiels out completely as there is no sign of a crest and the beak shape is not right.
In this picture of an umbrella 'too, you can see that the end of the beak does not come to a nice rounded curve, but rather stops as if the end of the lower beak was removed.
You can kind of see it in the younger cockatoo chicks as well
I'm not seeing any beak similarities between this chick and a cockatoos beak.

Do to the coloration that comes in, this is definitely a rosella! Of which species however, I am unaware. I'm leaning towards possible a crimson
Or an adelaide rosella (hybrid between a crimson and yellow rosella)
You can tell rosella by the blue-ish cheek patches, the colors of the tail feathers and the colors of the wings.
Well done in rearing this chick! Can't wait to see him/her feathered out, and would love to see those adult colors, whenever he/she molts into them!
