Yes, it's definite this time after about a year. After much more time to settle down my schedule, know what I'm getting into more, meeting a couple adult Eclectus', and having a plan for my future. I've decided to definitevely get a male Eclectus.

He's really young right now and will be ready around November, he will be shipped from Texas to North Dakota and I know that's a long trip.

Do you recommend putting him in the cage right away and leaving him alone for a day?
Opening his crate and continuing with our day like normal and let him come out by himself and interact a little?

Really nervous for him to come home even though it's still going to be a couple of months. I've done GALLONS of research but any tips for a new Eclectus owner would be greatly appreciated!

Also would love some name suggestions! I was going to name the one I was going to get Merlin, but I really like the name Atlas but would love to hear some suggestions and your guys' input!

Thank you for everything in advance!

Usually the bird will decide if he comes out straight away or stays in the cage for a few days.

They may be a bit nervous or tired after the long trip or they may want interaction immediately.

Is he home? Did the weather complicate shipping?

When you say Texas, do you mean the guy in corpus Christy?

There was a problem with his feathergrowing but the Vet said it was nothing they think but the breeders wanted to keep him just to make sure. They put us on for the next baby and he's coming late this month or early January :)

It's JCAviary

We're going to name him Basil <3

Okay.... It's early January....

How's it going? I hope the weather hasn't been too bad to ship.

I bet. I'm having a hard time, so I suspect you're miserable! I hope the weather cooperates.
