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.

Hi I have a 6 month old female Eclectus named Trixie, I bought her when she was 2 mons. old. She came home at the end of November and is just a total delight to be with. She is saying hello and is trying to say a whole lot of other words and phrases too. I just love her like she is one of my kids. she is the best pet I`ve ever had and just a beautiful parrot, very lovable. I believe she is a solomn island eclectus, she is on the smaller side with green in her wings. She loves to eat and loves to watch TV. Cartoons are her favorite, I just love her so much and I can`t imagine my life without her in it.

I have two Eclectus Parrots. Lexi is my almost 2 year old female and Jasper is a 5 month old male. The are very pretty birds with a high intellegence. Lexi talks up a storm. She says new words every day. She laughs when someone does something funny. She tells people hi and bye at appropriate times.

i have 2 beautiful babies, 1 boy & 1 girl. They are now 3. I got my boy when he was 4 months and my girl when she was 6 months. They are the joy of my everyday and i dont know what life what be without them. As you can tell, i love my birds dearly. The bond that these birds form with you is just amazing, and not only with you but with each other. My two carry on like children (often worst)talking and screeching when they are not together.T hey do become very good talkers.My birds have free flight of the house and yes they are toilet trained. Hope you all have as much fun with your birds as i do with mine.

I'm now the happy owner of a male Eclectus (subspecies unknown)because one day in mid April of 2005 my daughter look out the window of her office and saw a beautiful parrot roosting on a low tree. She went out to see if she could capture the bird and when she saw he was going to fly she just grabbed him. Brought him home in a box with holes punched in it. We "googled" parrots and discovered this site with a perfect picture of our bird. There was no response to our ads for a lost parrot at our vets and local pet shops and there was no micro chip. There is a leg band indicating he is domestically bred. Fred is now housed in a $50 yard sale cage that is advertised on line for over $500 and other than a check up be the local bird doc and a lot of toys we have had no other expenses for this absolutely gorgeous bird with a great personality. Not talking yet but makes a huge range of "noises" and Fred bird talk.

Savannah is a female SI eclectus. I got her at 9 months of age. She first learned to yahoo like the prairie dog, then meow exactly like my cat who stays outside but meows at the front door. She's finally saying hello occassionally when she hears you in another room. She's turned into a real snuggler and has been a great joy so far.

I am the joyful sister of a 3 yr old female eclectus "Gerty". She has an extensive vocabulary and often shouts "WOW" when she impresses herself by teasing the cat. She is sweet & sour. Sometimes chases me across the floor if she has escaped from her cage. She has a flock to chat with; blue/gold Macaw, yellow crown amazon, & sun conure, all of whom she imitates. Her favorite treat is fresh aloe leaf. She will sit in the shower endlessly and is in beautiful plummage. I love all of what she brings to my life .

It's really an interesting article. It encourages me to spend more efforts to train my eclectus parrots to speak. I used to keep 4 eclectus parrots, but no one spoke.
