Red face Rescued Eclectus Parrot (female)

Hi,

Firstly let me introduce myself - my name is Stacey and I have a female eclectus parrot named Dolly.

I have never owned a parrot before, and never expected to! However, she ‘chose’ me - and since I am a huge softy and a sucker for a sob story, she now lives with me!

I don’t think I could’ve jumped in to deeper water though as she has many issues....hence why I am here!

I want to offer her the best life possible, I have time and patience- and I do not give up on my pets.....EVER!

So that’s a quick bit about us. Thanks for reading!

Re: Rescued Eclectus Parrot (female)

Welcome Stacey and Dolly! So glad you found us. It's an amazing thing to be chosen. We have quite a few Ekkie parronts around here, happy to help however we can. Ekkies are definitely different from others, but absolutely wonderful IMO. I love them! Please feel free to ask questions. Again, we're here to help. Also, we love pictures here if you'd like to share!

Re: Rescued Eclectus Parrot (female)

Welcome!

There is a fair number of Eclectus owners on Parrotforum and it is worth your time to read back into the Threads in the Eclectus Subforum. IMHO, it is best to sit near her in her cage or in that neutral place and read those Threads softly, out loud in a comforting place. The goal is simple, you learn and your girl becomes ever more comfortable with you.

I'm an Amazon Snob, but know that Diet is very important for an Eclectus' health and wellbeing. To my understanding, their Diet is heavy on the Veggies side of the spectrum.

Avian Medical Care: If you have not already taken her for a New Parrot Avian Physical, you really need to. The visit should include a Hands on Physical examination, her weight, a gram stain (poop smear) and a full spectrum blood test. This will offer you a clear starting point for future visits. Avian Clinic visits for a Healthy Parrot should be once every fifteen months, all the way down to monthly if you are chancing a medical issue.

- Only Good Things Happen When Humans Are Around!

- Change your vantage point:
It is Never the fault of the Parrot!
It is Always the fault of the Human(s)!
By changing your vantage point, you can see what you are doing wrong and correct it quicker.

Re: Rescued Eclectus Parrot (female)

Welcome aboard Stacey and Dolly! Kudos for being chosen by an Ekkie, high praise that bodes well for close bonding.

As others have stated, dietary issues of utmost concern with Ekkies. Many active members have contributed superb advice. Looking forward to pics if able!

Hi,

Thanks for the welcome! I have posted on the eclectus chat and would love any advice you have to give!
Here’s a few pictures of my Dolly taken today, the “chunky” was when she was honking, clicking and grinding her beak at me (which is super cute)
