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

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.

Health Information

Noticing and understanding slight changes in your Eckie is critical to saving their life. Our feathered kids will try to tell us they are sick and if we know what to look for, we can better understand their cues. Monitor your Eckie on a daily basis. Take note of slight changes in behaviour, eating habits, weight loss, mood changes, feather quality and droppings.

Keeping weight charts helps monitor normal weight fluctuations and alerts you to abnormal weight loss.

The basic signs of an unwell bird are as follows:

  • Fluffing up their feathers to retain body heat. Hunkering down close to the perch
  • Lethargy
  • Regurgitation – other than normal hormonal related regurgitation
  • Weakness
  • Loss of appetite
  • Continued sneezing (This is not always a sign of illness. Parrots may sneeze for a variety of reasons: dust, pollen, airborne irritants, change in weather, dry air or they may have a small feather irritating their nares. Ensure you monitor your Eckie closely to rule out irritants.)
  • Wet or dry encrusted mucus around the nares
  • Change in demeanour e.g. depression, aggression
  • Dirty feathers or unkempt plumage
  • Decreased vocalisation
  • Unusual droppings
  • Diarrhoea
  • Increased defecating
  • Increased thirst
  • Sudden feather picking or irritated behaviour
  • Vomiting (This is different to regurgitation-Parrots shake their heads vigorously when vomiting and food will often be found on the top of their head.)
  • Inability to perch including hunkering down on the bottom of the cage
  • Tail bobbing – can indicate respiratory infection and serious illness
  • Open mouth breathing – can indicate respiratory infection and serious illness
  • Dizziness – unable to stand up, unable to walk or fly
  • Head tilting abnormally
  • Seizures

If your Eckie is exhibiting any of the above symptoms, please seek veterinary assistance immediately. Don’t wait to see how they go. Parrots have lost their lives unnecessarily because people wait to see if the illness will get worse. Many illnesses can be overcome if detected and treated in the very early stages.

Eclectus Parrots: Understanding their behavioral traits and temperament

After recently publishing my first book, I decided to take a little time out to write  articles for avian magazines. My first article is now available in the Parrots Magazine and can be found in newsagents and Barnes and Noble stores worldwide.

Our Eckie hen, Tessa, graces the cover of this edition and we think she looks absolutely stunning. We hope you enjoy this article.
