Re: Harness?

Clipped or not, you ABSOLUTELY need a harness outdoors...
Eclectus parrots demand s lot of specialized care. I'm glad you're here, and reaching out. :P

Re: Harness?

Yes absolutely agreed. Outdoors = harness if not in a pak o bird or other travel cage.

Ekkies need the medium sized harness.

Good luck! With ekkies you're up against species habit of not wanting to be touched and manipulated much, which could make the harness training a more drawn out process (varies by the individual bird though; your mileage may vary). I wish you the best of luck!

Re: Harness?

My female eclectus hates the harness. It took a long time for her to trust me to get it on over her wings. Awhile back, I was able to get it on her, but then it got stuck and she flipped out. Lots of screaming going on with both of us to get it off. With that being said, I had her clipped by a vet and less than a month after, she got loose and flew away. I was lucky to get her back three days later, but just know that a clipped bird can still fly!

Re: Harness?

Keep an highlights somethig that gets brought up often around here. Newbies ask about clipping not realizing that when appropriately clipped (enough to let them glide down) they can still get some lift, and especially on a gusty day can get enough to get away. Can't reply on a clip.

Harness or carrier of some sort.

Re: Harness?

Tell the breeder you will pay an extra 50 bucks if he harness trains your baby!
