Eclectus Parrots For Sale – Fantastic Reputation

We currently have two hand raised Eclectus available! But Parrot Haven babies are only for a very short time…

Eclectus Parrots for saleParrot Haven Eckies are always in high demand and we have always found it difficult to keep up with the requests for our precious feathered kids. Two years ago we began turning away clients choosing instead to rest our hens. We removed all of the nest boxes and let our girls take a well deserved break. Initially our hens reveled in their new found freedom but it wasn’t long before their maternal instincts kicked in and they wanted to breed again. As good human slaves we caved under the unrelenting pressure and hung the girls boxes. They immediately began mating and have since had some very gorgeous babies. We again decided to rest our hens so it was a bitter sweet moment when we finally pulled the last of the nest boxes from our aviary.

We have found the most wonderful parents for many our babies and recently sent two kids, Leeloo and Bowie to their new home. We are told they are settling in very well and making the most of their new life being spoilt rotten, playing with their plethora of toys and learning how to wrap their new Mummy and Daddy around their little claws.

Baby Eckies are without a doubt incredibly cute, especially when they look like little balls of grey fuzz. I love watching their little eyelids grow heavy after a big feed. Their bobble heads slowly droop as they fight a loosing battle to stay awake, before long they are sound asleep, dreaming sweet baby birdie dreams.

Hand Raised Eclectus babies available.

It’s time to put on another pot of coffee as we face the two hourly feeds that come with raising neonate Eclectus. We prefer to leave our babies with Mummy bird until they are approximately three weeks old, but sometimes nature has other ideas. Red, one of our best breeders, sometimes has three fertile eggs and this can take its toll on her little body. So to help her out we will take the youngest baby to ensure she remains in peak condition.Eclectus Parrots for sale

It won’t be long before these little bundles of joy start developing their baby fuzz but in the meantime, they are reveling in being nudists. 12646752_552216404933707_4030144256383823694_o

Love is in the air at Parrot Haven as it seems our kids celebrated Valentines Day early. Mummy birds are busy tending to their sweet neonate chicks while others diligently sit on eggs waiting for the first muffled chirps telling them their baby is on the way. This is a special time for us, having taken a long hiatus from breeding it is wonderful to see our hens doing what they love and for the house to be filled with the sounds of baby Eclectus.

Meet Bowie, one of our sweet Parrot Haven kids. His Mum is anxiously awaiting his arrival and I know he is going to be spoilt rotten. This little man has an unusual streak of red and blue around his neck making him quite unique. His Mum named him after the late David Bowie so his quirky markings are very fitting.

Eclectus Parrots

Avian Movie Critics

Eclectus ParrotParrot Haven is home to 26 spoilt Eclectus parrots, one Green Cheeked Conure and a very self opinionated African Grey. All have their very specific likes and dislikes but none more so than our matriarch Eclectus parrot, Red.

Red began life as a precocious baby and grew into an even more precocious mature hen. She is very set in her ways and isn’t afraid to voice her opinion. From favorite foods, preferred perching locations even to certain rock bands, Red knows what she likes. Red often likes to join us at night while watching a movie. It’s a routine she knows well, she perches on my chest, pulls one little foot up against her body and settles in for the nights entertainment. Movie night with Red is always fun but we must choose the movie carefully, if its not to Red’s liking we are severely reprimanded.

Action movies are amongst her favorite, and car chases excite her like nothing else. Her little eyes light up as she watches the vehicles tear down the road at breakneck speed and she squeals with joy when they crash in a fiery wreck. However car chases are often accompanied by gun fire and this does not sit well with our Red. She yells ‘naughty’, ‘no’ and ‘stop it’ as the bullets fly. According to Red, the actors are doing something wrong and she must give them a piece of her mind. As with any good action movie, someone is inevitably shot and Red will often pipe up and ask ‘you all right?’, just to make sure the person writhing in pain understands her concern. We tell her ‘yes Red, they are fine’ and she happily snuggles back down to enjoy the rest of the movie.

I sometimes wonder whether our parrots believe the television is a window into another  world. They watch avidly, reacting to specific scenes as if they were watching reality play out.  I remember watching a scary movie many years ago when Red decided to join us. She perched in her usual position however it wasn’t long before she grew agitated. The images on screen were clearly upsetting her and she moved closer to me seeking reassurance. I turned the movie off immediately and switched to a comedy and she visibly relaxed and returned to her normal self. We now save horror movies for day’s when Red is playing with her boyfriend in the aviary. I would hate to scare our gorgeous girl.

So next time you are watching T.V with your parrot, take note of their response. Some parrots simply zone out and pay little to no attention to the screen, others watch intently, loosing themselves in the world of make believe. If your Eckie is like our Red, then it won’t be long before you are choosing movies based on your parrots specific preferences. You certainly know you are an Eckie slave when your feathered friend dictates the movies you watch.

Sourcing reliable Eclectus Parrot information

Beautiful Mia

Sourcing reliable avian information can be a hit and miss affair because many websites provide inaccurate and misleading information.

As an aviculturist and avid avian researcher I have read countless parrot related websites. Some sites are wonderful and it is evident the person writing the information has had many years of hands on experience. However, not all sites offer accurate information and before following any advice, it pay’s to take the time to learn about the author and their level of expertise.

The internet offers a plethora of avian knowledge, passed on from people from all levels of experience. There are sites written by avian experts and aviculturists keen to share their wealth of knowledge. Some are written by pet owners who own a few of their chosen species, are passionate about their pets and enjoy sharing knowledge they have. Other authors are simply regurgitating the information they have read on other sites or books and sometimes this can lead to the spread of mis-information.

I have seen my own work on other avian websites over the years, written word for word. On one such occasion I contacted the person and requested they remove the plagiarized content. I checked back later only to find my work re-worded however the author had made so many errors while changing my copy that the advice they were giving was harmful and potentially deadly. It made me shudder to think of people following such advice, especially at the detriment to their parrot.

Before following the advice of the author, be sure the content is true and correct, especially when reading advice pertaining to avian health. The best people to source knowledge from are those who specialize in your chosen parrot and have had many years keeping, breeding, hand raising and working with companion parrots.

Reading books, keeping a few pets and regurgitating information is all well and good but when it comes right down to it, nothing beats hands on experience. Professional aviculturists work day in day out with their parrots, they are immersed in everything avian and the information they share is invaluable. Two of my favorite avian writers are both professional aviculturists. Rosemary Low who worked for Loro Parque for many years and Eb Cravens who runs his parrot business in Hawaii. Both share a wealth of knowledge that was learnt from working directly with parrots from neonates to mature birds. The information they provide was gleaned from years of research, understanding every aspect of each parrots unique needs, comparing these needs with others of the species and of course lot’s of trial and error.

I have worked extensively with Eclectus parrots for over a decade now and have learned more than I could ever have imagined. I have enjoyed the best of both worlds. I kept Eckies as companion parrots, learning the in’s and out’s of pet ownership while helping other Eckie owners from around the world. I also spent many years breeding Eckies, this opened my eyes to an entirely different aspect of this magnificent species. Taking a parrot through their many varying growth stages to become a well adjusted, fully fledged companion bird is an amazing experience; one I had time and time again.

So next time you’re surfing the internet, be sure to check the sites ‘about us’ page. You will soon learn whether you are reading information written by a professional, a hobbyist or a pet owner. When it comes to the health and wellbeing of your parrot, experience is everything and you want to be sure the person giving the advice is qualified to do so. If you are researching information for medical issues, always seek the advice of your avian vet.

Happy researching!

Choosing an Eclectus

Do male Eclectus make better pets than the females?

Female eclectus parrots DO make wonderful pets

 

 

 

 

 

There is nothing worse than being judged by others, especially when your reputation has been unjustly tarnished. Somehow, gorgeous Eckie hens everywhere have been labeled the problem children of the avian world. The Internet is rife with stories of hens being moody, temperamental, even labeled, ‘not pet material’. This couldn’t be further from the truth.

Eclectus hens do make fantastic pets. In fact, we have two gorgeous Eckie hens that rule our home. Mia and Moto are the most wonderful companion parrots you could ever wish for. They are incredibly smart and affectionate, both have an amazing vocabulary-which they use in context-and their antics have us in constant stitches. We love our girls and believe hens make amazing companion parrots.

A healthy female Eclectus Parrot

Are they both affectionate?

As juveniles our males tend to be a little cuddlier whereas our hens are a slightly more independent, although this varies from parrot to parrot. Our hens are usually the first to want their snuggle time, but they want it ‘their way’ and are quick to tell you if you’re not doing it exactly right. While the males are happy to sit and relax on the couch with Mum and Dad, play with their toys or have some preening time, the hens will be in mental overdrive. Having already mastered their puzzle toys, they spend time observing and taking in everything around them, assessing their environment and looking for different ways to get up to mischief. The hens love to break the rules and have some fun.

More snuggle time with Mumma

Do both genders talk?

Without a doubt. Both the male and females are incredible talkers. When we are in the aviary, I can barely hear myself think, let alone hold a conversation with Jason. Talking comes naturally to our feathered kids and if they are treated as an important member of the family they will want to communicate with their flock. This may be in the form of talking, whistling or chortling. Not all parrots talk and this is their choice. It doesn’t make them any less of a companion bird; it just means we can enjoy their beautiful natural calls and chatters.
