    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? When he is dry you cant even notice it... You have to actually part the wet feathers to see it. It's about...

    New Eclectus Owner!

    Just laid the deposit down for this sweet baby! He's 3 months old, I've been researching for weeks but any advice you have would be much appreciated! Super excited for my second bird, trying to think of a name for him too. (:

    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...

    Pictures Lada fathers day

    Lada and I took a road trip down to Columbia SC this past weekend to spend some time with my father for fathers day. My dad (never held a bird in his life, just like me) is starting to fall in love with Lada and getting used to the idea of having a parrot in the family. My whole family (myself...

    So I already accidentally leaked this in another post without even thinking about it, but I still wanted to post this to make myself feel a little better haha. ITS OFFICIAL OFFICIAL NOW!!! I HAVE ADOPTED LADA!!! The signature has now been edited After a recent vet trip I had all her records...

    Lada vet visit!

    So Lada went to the vet the other day. I guess its time to officially call her adopted as I had all her past records transferred to my name. I finally learned her hatch date and some other great information! Anyways though, she was due at the vet for her feather picking and a potential weight...

    Hello everyone! I just joined this forum but have actually been her reading a lot for the past month at least. I have a female Eclectus that is my heart. I bought her from a breeder who didn’t share much information with me on how to properly take care of her. I’ve just recently learned that...

    Hello from Rose and Jasper. I’m the proud mom of a 7 year old male SI Eclectus. I’ve owned Birds my whole life. My mother and I used to breed and raise budgies and cockatiels.

    Lada being cute

  13. Atomiklan


    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. Last time was a few months ago... so not good in terms of span. The egg laying is not the problem though. She is and has been for quite...

    Urgent Female Eclectus plucking/bald spot on chest???

    Guys I am VERY worried. Emma was going through what I THOUGHT was a pretty heavy 'molt'... her feathers around her collar, her sides and around her neck and etc were looking a little dark and ruffled and thin in places, but nothing I was too extremely concerned with.. and then this morning we...

    New bird scale arrived finally and I am BLOWN AWAY! The quality is incredible! Not some cheap plastic POS. Very happy with my choice. Here are some up close pics. Its all stainless and wash down capable. Even comes with a leveling bubble sight mounted to the back. Its very heavy and very heavy...

    Birb reboot!

    Ok after talking with Lada's parront, she suggested at this point to go ahead and just take away the box that was originally recommended for a little while. So in effect we are attempting to reboot Lada and snap her out of her breeding mood. She stopped laying eggs after 2 and was sitting on 4...

    Breeding season

    So apparently its that time of the year. Lada has gotten broody. She laid an egg several days ago (on me I might add lol). At first she wanted nothing to do with it and didn't even acknowledge it so I removed the egg at the recommendation of Lada's parront. He parront also requested I give Lada...

    Should I get it? or no?

    58 days hand rasied male Eclectus baby. As a beginning, please give some advise on this bird base from these pictures. Thanks everyone! Parents are healthy and no peaking feather histories. I think he got a really cute face. <58days> <55days>

    Weird lightswitch behavior

    My foster Eckie (female) is so strange sometimes. I'm hoping someone can explain this behavior a little more and tell me its fairly normal. When Lada gets on the ground she is usually snooping around for a nesting site. So when she gets in a dark corner she likes I can understand this behavior...

    Ear woobie?

    Any one else out there have an eckie with an ear woobie haha? Lada when on my shoulder likes to hang onto my ear. I know what you're thinking... I promise you she is not holding it to keep her balance as she does that as well when we're moving, but its a very different action. She also is not...
