Hey, I have five pair of birds that I breed. My Solomon islands Eclectus have been a very prolific pair for the last three years. As i type this right now, they're second baby is hatching out! Just wanted to share that with all you bird people! I went and checked on him about two hours ago, and sure enough he has broken almost all the way out of the shell! Take care everyone!

Last year while visiting a bird show I passed by a small cage which had the most beautiful male Senegal parrot for sale. In front of his little cage was a sign saying he was 14 years old. After chatting with the seller and holding Skeeter the breeder told me to just make an offer for him as she wanted him to go to a home where he was loved. I brought Skeeter home with me and have never regretted my decision. He is delightful and soooo loving. He purrs with contentment, makes lovely little whistles and chirps, speaks his name, and gives the most wonderful kisses. I have several parrots but Skeeter is so special. He is so well behaved and is the only one of my parrots that has permission to sit on my shoulder. He's almost 15 years old and is "feather perfect". I am overwhelmed by his consistent attitude and gentle disposition. Skeeter is my first and only Senegal but if he is typical representation of his breed then Senegal's are perfect [in my opinion]. I love my little Skeeter.

Thank you for giving me some helpful facts about my bird, Skippy, indeed he is veeerrry spoiled and playful. He is three years old and he can say "Chanel", which is my name so when I am not home he will call for me every second until I arrive. He also can say "cookies" and imitates various sounds such as my microwave. He has chewed up a lot of my things but I will get mad and hold it. He has bitten my mom various times but you know what she didn't care that much because she knows he is trying to tell her something. He is our special angel and best friend and we love him dearly. I just wish that he could understand english and talk back to me and my family. He is like my little brother who keeps me on my feet.

Kiwi has been with me since 1996 when she was still a baby. She is definitely not a pet but a member of the family. Although it was just me for her first few years, she did end up bonding with my husband, but it took some patience. Senegals definitely have huge personalities for a small package. She loves to chew on anything she can get her beak on and is a wonderful mimic. Like with any parrots, be prepared that bringing a parrot into your life needs careful consideration and thought before buying one. They are a life-time commitment, and need a lot of time and attention because of their intelligence. Not only that, they
deserve your time, attention and unconditional love. Like a two year old, they'll challenge you for 30+ years, but if you are a ''bird person'', it's worth every minute.

I have a one-year old female eclectus by the name of Rozee and have just purchased a five month old male by the name of Kaycee. My first bird was a green cheek conure and when purchasing a second one fell in the love with the eclectus. I enjoy their company immensely, they are a joy. Rozee is starting to talk and does a great imitation if any whistle, especially when you call her pretty girl, she wolf whistles. Kaycee just says hello, but we've only had him since Christmas. They love to shower, sit at the table with us to eat and love anything you give them. They truly are a joy. Kathy, Jan. 21, 2006.

My wife got her senegal parrot 11 years ago. For the 1st 2 she was the only handler. I cannot sit next to her or move close to her when the parrot is on her shoulder. If she (my wife) is not around it is very pleseant.
Zeppie is a very fun bird, although she is very agressive in protecting her bonded partner, my wife!

I have the same problem with one of my two male Eclectuses and have been told that they require more attention than other parrots. We did have a problem feeding and had to "force feed" through a tube which seemed to help as I suspect that it was hungry. It still screaches loadly in the morning then again at night. Looks like it is "in- bread" being more noisy than other Parrots. Good luck

My new baby girl red-sided eclectus was just born 12-12-05 and will be coming home with me in a few weeks. I visit her regularly at the breeders home. She only just now started to get her red pin feathers. I am so excited, just counting down the days. I cant believe all of the wonderful things I have read. I admit for a moment I was concerned because I read a lot of information that said females were aggressive, less friendly, and less tame, and less talented then the male. But reading from the people who actually own them I have read mostly good things in all of these areas.

We, my significant other and myself, are owned by a gorgeous lady in the form and shape of a Meyer's Parrot. Since I don't have her hatch date, I can only go by when we adopted each other, which was in June '05. At that time she had just been weaned, and she was just the most beautiful, in every way, baby M.parrot I had ever seen. She had a perfect physique, the works! My only thing is I didn't want a girl, because the possibility of becoming "egg-bound" in the future.
She is nicknamed "Chicklet." But officially her name is Cricket. What a wonderful companion, entertainer,cuddler and general grrrreat feather-person to share our lives with!!! There aren't any negatives I can speak of in her life with me,but my significant other does have a few complaints with biting.
Her favorite things are #1 to stay out of her cage, #2 play independently on her back/doing acrobatic's (somersault's, etc.)
She eats practically EVERYTHING set before her and is a JOY to share life with. She is what I get up in the morning for.

THE SENEGAL PARROT IS VERY FRIENDLY AND SWEET. HE CAN DO A LOT OF CRAZY THINGS LIKE CLIMBING ON YOUR HEAD AND TEARING YOUR HOMWORKS AND YOUR PAPERS. IF YOU WANT A GOOD ADVICE BUY ONE AND YOU WILL HAVE VERY NICE TIME
