Thumbs up Baby Ekkies Almost 2 months old already!!!

Wow so these little guys have just grown and grown... I weigh them every other day and wow there both over 100 grams already..

Shrek has discovered he has wings and there getting to be quiet long wings.. he will run as fast as his big ol feet will take him flapping his wings and climb up on his stuff animal and jump... ... lol its quiet funny! HE is getting feathers along the edge of his wings now and the color is just beautiful.... he will dive into his food if im not fast enough, and run if he is set away from me to get to me... he will let us rub his head or neck or anywhere we chose and he will just relax and fall over into you while ur rubbing him .. He is so loveable and has started kissing me, and i finally for a picture of it.

Fiona.. she is sweet but just like i have heard can be a touch me not, she is eating good and just today dicovered she has wings... after feeding her she will climb to my hair or my friends beard and try to preen..

Both the babies have discovered that they have toys in there lil tank and they will play with them or fight over them , i placed a mirror in there with a bell and they get so mad at it sometimes and try to get the lil guy on the other side of mirror.. lol its quiet funny I was able to catch shrek playing with a toy and got a pic , in my folder...

I love these little guys so much .. every afternoon after lunch feeding we take a nap together , they curl up under my chin in my hair and sleep with me for at least a hr... so cute...

Re: Baby Ekkies Almost 2 months old already!!!

such cuties!! I love Eclectus and enjoyed my Joaquin until 2005. I was fortunate enough to learn about his ability to help people. Joaquin was very good with helping people feel better. He use to do volunteer work in the hospital to help the mentally ill feel better.

At home he had a very playful side. He use to play hard in his cage like a Macaw and when he wanted out of his cage he was very insistent on it even when I was busy. One day I had the windows open because it was a very nice day and I was busy doing laundry. Joaquin wanted out of his cage to be with me but I told him "after this load I will take you out." He said "I want out....I want out now." I say "Not now Joaquin you have to wait." He was not pleased with my answer so he started yelling "I WANT OUT NOW.....OUT OUT OUT.....I WANT OUT NOW.....HELP ME .....HELP ME." Needless to say I gave him "the look" so he would be quiet but the damage was already done as an eclectus voice does carry because one of my neighbors heard him and it happened to be a neighbor I did not know. They in turn called the police because about half hour later they came to my door. I answered the door in confusion because I did not understand why they were at my door. They insisted to come into the home so I let them into the entryway. Joaquin took one look at them and told them "Your WEIRD!" and Mihijo my noble macaw yells "HELLO!" The police just stared at me. I told Joaquin "Joaquin! That was rude say your sorry". Joaquin hung his head and said in a small voice "sorry"

I asked the police why they were there and they told me they had a complaint of a child being restrained in my home. I told them I did not have children but the parrots have to be caged when I cannot watch over them. Then it hit me that Joaquin was yelling to be let out of his cage so I told the officers that the bird was being naughty and not being patient. The police just smiled with understanding and said "Sorry to bother you." I told them I would go introduce myself to the neighbors and let them know I have parrots.

Eclectus are precious and wonderful companions. I remembered that even after Joaquin got the cops called on me.
