Hey could u help me I have a female eclectus and every time it's sees me it goes off and screams but when I go it's quite even if the family are walking around it's quite but if I carry it or go near it. It will look up can scream is that A bad sign?Ekkies in general are very different from other parrots. They really think things through before doing them. Sometimes it means holding your hand up for an extra 20 seconds before they decide to step up, and sometimes it means they look at that treat extra hard before taking it. They really aren't cuddly birds, their feather texture is different from other parrots (mostly on their head but some all over) and they don't spend a lot of time allopreening in the wild (preening each other) and so I think that has a lot to do with their reluctance to accept pets or scratches from people. That said, you really want to be careful because they can become VERY "into" their humans if you know what I mean. Be very careful about touching under the wings and over their back, I have to be very watchful of Rosco getting into an overly amorous mood and have to distract him.
They also have a super piercing alarm screech. If there's something around that they don't like it can peel the wallpaper from the walls and rattle your ear drums like no other. They can also be very marvelous talkers, Rosco is constantly learning new phrases and surprising me.
They are wonderful parrots to live with, but they can take some time to adjust to because their mannerisms and body language is very different from other species. If you're looking for a more gregarious bird that will also accept some scritches I would consider the green cheek.
