Re: my new eclectus

Do you have experience with breeding and hand-feeding?

And out of curiosity, why do you want to pull the eggs instead of letting your ekkie hen sit them?

Re: my new eclectus

wow how exiting !! I hope you have a very big home since for me one is already alot of work and patience!!

They can be very noisy!! If you are planing to bread them you better off by seting up a garden Aviary!


Keep on posting pictures are must welcome!!
