Re: Male or female eclectus? Eclectus just in general?

If you really are set on a parrot maybe look into a quaker. I’ve never owned one but know people who have. From my experiences they’re very friendly with their owners, smart and (let’s not forget) not nearly the hormone or dietary issues of an eclectus.

Yeah, did a quick search on cockatoos and I remembered why they went to the bottom of my list (I have been researching parrots for at least 3 years in order to find a good fit). I don't think I could handle a big cockatoo. I think an Eclectus will be a good fit for the moment (I will continue my research until I am really sure), and I don't mind if he doesn't let me touch him/her as much. I am actually looking for a bird that will most likely just enjoy spending time with us (being in the same place, perched on our arms, etc), and that will be receptive to trick training (clickers!). They are also known to be talkers, aren't they?
