Re: Hello Everyone! 😊

Thank you everyone! I’m quite determined to get this guy in tip top shape. Now to decide on a name! Rafiki doesn’t really suit him and he doesn’t respond to it.

Re: Hello Everyone! 😊

Welcome to you and your menagerie!

Ekkies have special dietary needs partly because of lengthy digestive system that absorbs nutrients efficiently. A diet high in veggies with emphasis on vitamins A & D, lower fat than typical for a parrot, and some fruits is ideal. Pellets are generally nutritional overkill.

Highly recommend you read various threads in the Eclectus forum. This in particular has dietary links in third post: So..you think you want an Eclectus.

Re: Hello Everyone! 😊

Hello Scott!

I spent most of my day yesterday researching and reading the threads here. I have made him some chop that he loves. I have tons of veggies and fruits, so no problem there. I already cook homemade meals for my dogs, so a specialized diet for my new buddy isn’t an issue either. Calling the avian vet this morning for an appointment. ��

YAY!!! My Tucker loves the shower as well. Jumps off the perch on to me to get under the water about every 2-3 days. The other days, he likes to go in, hangs out on the perch, and enjoys the mist/over spray without the full on soaking. He got REALLY JEALOUS the other day when I left him in the cage and took Baxter (my Amazon) in for her shower. Quite funny, but I had to spend time with him after she was done so he knew all was okay. :-P
