Pet Bird Age: Young Adult
|Compatibility:|| Good with Most Birds |
|Personality:|| Average Energy, Average Temperament | We have two beautiful ecletus parrots we are looking to re home. We have enjoyed both of their company very much, but have with much thought, time, and due to personal medical conditions, and change in our work, decided to find their next forever home(s). The Female is 9 year old, named Turanga. She wants nothing more than to sit on your shoulder, or hang out with the 'flock'. She loves human attention. She steps up/down, has a small vocabulary (and ability to keep learning), and is very friendly. As with most female eclectus parrots, she can at some times be territorial of small dark 'nesting' spaces and generally stays independent from ... (Read More)other parrots if they are out of her space. She laid one egg about 18 months ago, but the only one thusfar. She loves strangers, especially females. She was hand raised from reputable breeder we have had her since she was 8 months old. The male is an 11 years old, named Loki. He is sweet, inquisitive and playfull. He is very treat motivated and could learn more than we have taught with a more time and instruction. He does know a few words, and says hello often, but tends to mimic and make funny sounds more than anything else. Laser beams, cat meow, crow, and other goofy animal noises. We adoped Loki as a rescue. He likely was smuggled into the states to Hawaii, and his early years are not known. But he has flourished with care and nutrition. With that in mind, he can be susceptible to plucking (as was the case when we adopted him) if not cared for correctly, ie showers or spraying & diet. We are looking for EXPERIENCED or KNOWLEDGEABLE owner(s) who knows and have had practice with bird care or is well educated and aware of this species and its quirks and needs. Eclectus parrots are different than Amazon species and other parrot breeds in both specific diet and care. This is NOT a beginner bird and as with any parrot adoption should be well considered. If you are an experienced bird person, you'll understand the process needed to find the right fit for these amazing creatures. These parrots do love attention, showers, treats, can learn with training, love to be a part of the flock and make great companions. It would be great if they were adopted together but that is probably more for our human peace of mind than theirs, they are both more interested in humans than each other, and are not bonded together. They do not have to be adopted as a pair. We are asking a $800 re-homing fee for the female, $700, or $1300 for both, which would also include cage(s) (one per bird), and any food/treats on hand. Please email to contact & Thank you for your consideration! (Less) Adoption Fee: 1300 Animal Location:
