    Hey everyone, I am relatively new to the Ekkie world. I am the proud owner of a 6 month old eclectus boy named Benji. I got him when he was just over 4 months. He was super quiet for 2 weeks, then in the last month and a half every time he sees me he caws really loudly. It will only start if he...

    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...

    Bald spine

    Hi guys, I've had my boy since mid September and in the shower today I noticed a strip down the middle portion of his spine that is almost completely bald. Is this normal for a birds spine?

    Eclectus Diet

    Wondering how much they eat per day and what a good diet for them would be, what kind of pellets? I know they have a 'special' diet.

    Pictures New behavior

    Lada's behavior is changing again. Its amazing how much parrots change with time! She is now starting to let out this very loud high pitched chirp (sounds exactly like a VERY loud smoke alarm low battery indicator) at certain times usually when I first come into the room. She is not imitating...

    I know I have been down this road before, but I need some tips again please. Lada (female eclectus) is again getting broody. She laid an egg again yesterday.
