    (Apologies if this is located in the wrong place, I am unfamiliar with forums.) My Eclectus -ICP- has been making the head movement periodically over the last two days.

    Galah or Eclectus?

    Hi everyone! Couple of days ago i posted a thread about me looking for an addition to my mini flock. So after going through more than 30 shops in the same area, I couldn’t find a bird that’s in a good condition and at a reasonable price. Local shops seem to not care about the birds they’re...

    I adopted an eclectus parrot in February and he is very sweet but very stubborn. He is already 15 years old and we don't know what sort of family life he came from. We have taught him to say hello but he wont say or do anything else now. I have budgie that was a very fast learner and Kirby is my...

When I last weighed him first thing yesterday morning, his weight was 292 grams. When I brought him home in late March, he was 308 grams, although...

    Pictures Weird coloured feathers

    so my female eclectus plucks a bit, (it’s not very bad) and I have noticed that she has a lot of green and blue at the end of her wings. I think this is visible because of her plucking, as it isn’t visible on the other wing. I would like to know if anyone can tell me what’s wrong? I know that...

    Safest way to purchase a new friend??

    So, I am hearing mixed opinions on the safest method to use for putting a deposit down on a baby and then paying the rest at pick up time. I have heard don't do the friends and family option (as you can't get money back if it happens to be a scam), so only use the business option. I have...
