New from Texas

Hey there,
So, I have been doing a lot of research on the Eclectus Parrot because my mom got a female a little over 5 weeks ago. She, Rajah, is about to turn 6 months old and she is doing so well. I have decided that I want one too. A male, preferably. (I think I will name him, Malakai.)
Like I said, I have been doing a lot of research and have found tons of interesting information, not just about the eclectus, but about parrots in general. They are such fascinating creatures and require a lot of attention and some very stict diets. Especially the Eclectus!
I figured I could learn a lot more on a few forums and maybe help out with the information that I have obtained.
See you around!!

Welcome to the forum!

You're very right in saying that the ekkie has a strict diet! It's very sad when I see adverts for them for sale with a curled under beak and a bowl of seeds next to them They have a pretty much natural fresh diet all around! Don't get sucked into pellets for them either! Waste of money IMO

You MUST show us some photos when you get him

Welcome to the forum, I can't wait to see photos of your Mom's new bird, and your future Ekkie.

Welcome to the forum Dustin. Fellow Texan here & an Ekkie owner as well.

I look forward to seeing lots of photos of your Ekkie when you get it.
