I presume by ring you are referring to the leg identification ring. Many leg rings have information on them that will indicate when they were hatched.
As Daisy said there is no grey washing through the pink which will indicate a young bird. At around the age of 6 months the females develop a brown iris and the males stay dark.
As for their sub species, not easy to tell from those pictures. Alot depends on your camera. Western Australian Galah's are usually a much darker pink and grey to the Eastern Galah's. But they could also be hybrids of the Western and the Eastern.
The bare patch around the eye is often a different colour depending on where in the country the birds originally came from. I have one pair that has the pink bare patch and another pair that has the grey bare patch. Brain freeze, I can't think of the proper name for the bare patch, nor will it come to me the territorial differences between the different colourings. But saying that it will make no difference as to whether they can successfully breed or not. Even in the wild where their territories overlap they will inter-breed.
They do look to be healthy vibrant birds though. A very nice pair.
