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

Amazons are biters. There’s that generalization again. No, they aren’t biters. They get a bad rap particularly because puberty can potentially hit them hard (more aggressive, perhaps more more than other species would be during the same life phase). But that behavior during puberty is hardly unique to amazons.

One word about the eclectus diet: this is a situation where what’s good for the good is good for the gander. Ekkies can’t be on the diet of other parrots, but the eclectus diet being really just fresh food, ANY parrot can eat that. Almost Any species would do very well munching along with you on your veggie dinner. Many other non eclectus parrot owners feed their birds a fresh fruit and vegetable diet. So you aren’t very limited there.
