I think it'd be nice to share some photos of their little play area. Most of the toys are kids ones! I'll take some up to date photos and post them. The background is the base of their java tree! I'll probably add the updated photos to this thread :

Might be tomorrow

Re: My Second Parrot ! Male Red Sided Eclectus :-)

What amazing updates! Both of your ekkies look so beautiful and healthy! You're doing a wonderful job with them! And loved the videos!

BTW, I was looking back over this thread and was reminded of the prior weight issue. What is Dexter's weight, now? Is it holding relatively steady?

Re: My Second Parrot ! Male Red Sided Eclectus :-)

Thanks Stephen! I'm hoping to get some better videos of them doing some actual tricks to upload, along with some recordings of their vocalisations.

A bit earlier on I could hear them 'talking' to eachother:
"Hello Bella"
"Woo"
"What'cha doin?"
"Come here Dexter"
"Giz a kiss" xXx
"Wha wa wa"
"Step up"
"Bella look"
"Good boy"
"Good girl"
"Hello"

They truly make me laugh!

Dexter is around 415g, I think I'd like him to weigh a little bit more, but I'm trying to build him up gradually. His weight is quite steady.

Re: My Second Parrot ! Male Red Sided Eclectus :-)

Dexter is currently learning to put coloured rings on coloured sticks...
He's getting the idea, so it shouldn't be long before I can post a video of him doing it like a pro :-D He's got a lot of catching up to do with his Internet peers (yes I'm talking about you - Jasper & Salty!)

Re: My Second Parrot ! Male Red Sided Eclectus :-)

Go, Dexter! And you can tell he's really engaged in the activity itself. The action is the reward. (Not that he'd turn down a piece of cashew or walnut, of course. Lol!)
