    I've always wondered how people can identify one Eclectus species from amother.

    I wish I knew! Sorry I'm not much help. :shy:

    It’s okay! I’m right there with you! I can tell one type pretty easily. I’m pretty sure she’s not a vos but the others all look too alike to me

    She's a lucky, snuggly ekkie.

    Most likely a solomon island because of the purple eye ring

    My guess was Solomon as well but I've also heard she may be a grand due to her size? She's really small compared to most ekkies I've ever seen and someone said grand are smaller?

    They don't have the purple eye ring, Solomon Islands are also small. It's possible she's a hybrid, but definitely not a pure grand because of the eye ring

    Maybe she is just petite, she sure is a lucky girl whatever species she is. I can tell she will be loved and cared for in her new flock.
