A species of fowl lived on Garqi, an agriworld located in the Cassander sector. The fowl had a small body, with a tail several times its length. This was divided into three, circular-tipped, central tail feathers. The bird had two, long wings, each terminating in two-digit, bald, pink claws. The body, wings, and tail were all covered in pink plumage. The species had a small, bald head, with a pink comb between its eyes. These eyes had a white sclera and black pupil, and were placed one on each side of the head. The species' beak was pink and ridged, and had an overhanging maxilla.
In 19 BBY, four birds of this species were disturbed from grasslands when the youngling Evan ran away from the clone commandos of Aiwha Squad shortly after the conclusion of the Battle of Garqi. The fowls scattered in different directions, with one shedding several feathers as it flew away.
