    Is this a good indoor cage? Or suit outdoors?

    I am getting an Eclectus pair, and am wanting to get them this: Walk-in Bird Aviary Dog Reptile Cage Wrought Iron | GTmall Online I am not sure how it would work indoors as I have never had an indoor aviary, so I dont know about cleaning and other stuff (apart from having enough floor space haha)

    Best organic pellets?

    I have been looking for some completely organic pellets to add to my Eckie's diet. They have 80% fresh fruits, veggies, mash, etc however in times when I lack the funding to buy so much fresh produce, I need them to be fine eating pellets. TOPS looks great, however I am having a hard time...

    Where to buy SS Double Macaw Cage in Aus?

    I am really wanting to get a stainless steel double macaw cage for my Eclectus pair, though I cant seem to find anywhere that sells them in Australia? I don't really want to spend a million bucks on shipping after buying a $4000+ cage.

    Wing Flipping Advice

    Hi all! This is my first post here. I care for a 5 year old SI eclectus female, Nefertari (Nef for short). She's my only bird (and first "big bird"). I've had her for 3 years and she is the sweetest creature on earth. I'm moving and inadvertently causing her a lot of stress. She and I are...

    Feather question

    I think I've noticed that Ruby's feathers break down more than normal. When she is preening she leaves a LOT of dust and feather fragments which I think is atypical based on comments from other Ekkie owners. She doesn't barber her feathers or anything and has full plumage, but whenever she loses...

    Oliver's hormonal phase going on 2 years

    This is Oliver. I posted about him a long time ago on here. He's a great bird, except for his raging hormones. I know plenty about birds (I work with them for my jobs) and Oliver definitely sees me more as his 'parental figure'. But unfortunately he sees my fiance as his mate. We make sure...

    Preening dust

    Hi!! This is a parrot question in general. Ruby is my first "big" bird and I've never experienced a problem with this before with my parrotlets and budgies. Basically, she preens violently and constantly, especially when she's sitting on me (her favorite activity). It looks like she's got a...

    Eclectus vs GCC?

    Hi there! =3 I'm not too experienced, and I'm looking into some parrots as a friend. I'm really considering the Eclectus or a Green Cheek Conure. ^-^ Overall, what I'm looking for is an animal that appreciates my presence. I just want a feathered companion. I don't ask for much. It doesn't...

    Electus advice

    Paco is a 8 yr old male Electus parrot. I just got him last week and I'd appreciate some advice on breaking some of his old habits. 1) Paco only approaches me, and hardly interacts with anyone else. 2) he always crawls up my arm and in trying to hold him without him being very close to my...
