Re: Eclectus Diet - confused

Thanks, Anansi. Great to hear from you. The spasms were very severe. Each episode would last about five days, during which he could not sleep. There was also wing flipping involved. I seem to recall...

Re: Eclectus Diet - confused

I'd just like to add to the pellet discussion. My eclectus, Oscar, cannot handle them at all, not even sprinkled judiciously over his food. I used to write on here about how he suffered from a severe...

Re: Balding and feather concerns

When my eclectus molts, he goes bald too, and last year he went bald in August and his feathers did not fully grow back until November.

Re: Sully Follow Up

Hi, I just thought I'd say he looks like he's been over preening his feathers. I've got an over preener. When he molts and his new feathers grow in, they look fine, but after several months of over...

Re: New Owner with concerns

Hi,

Since others have already addressed feather plucking, I thought I'd just say that I wouldn't be too concerned about the other things on your list.
The musky smell is natural.
The way you...

Re: Eclectus Life Span?

I don't think eclectus have been kept long enough to find out what their life-span in captivity is.
I did read that they should have the same life expectancy as any other parrot their size, which...

Re: What sex of Eclectus should I buy?

I got a male eclectus simply because I prefer green over red.

Re: Soybeans

Thanks for that, Chris. Oscar has certainly been biting more in the past week. Maybe this could explain why.

Soybeans

Hi, I was wondering whether anyone knows whether soybeans are good for ecelctus or not.
The reason I ask is that for the past couple of nights, Oscar has been toe tapping in his sleep, and the only...

Re: Toe-Tapping, Need Support/Advice

Hi, Stephen. Sorry about slow response. I've been away.
I was giving Oscar Paradise pellets, which are made here in Australia for eclectus, but I counted thirteen added vitamins on the back of the...

Re: Toe-Tapping, Need Support/Advice

That's great news that Jolly is back to his hyper-active self.
I sent Laurella the video I posted a while back. We discussed what Oscar had been eating and his history. She seemed certain that in...

Re: Toe-Tapping, Need Support/Advice

Hi, Stephen. I hadn't been on for a while -- I guess because Oscar's been mostly well (though, he's going through a very heavy molt at the moment).
I really enjoyed talking to Laurella. She was...

Re: Toe-Tapping, Need Support/Advice

I'm glad to hear that Cairo is on the mend. Hopefully, the urine is nothing. My vet told me that it's usual for birds to have higher urine content during summer, from drinking more and eating fruit.

Re: Sir Jolly's having a bad reaction

Hi, Stephen. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on the subject. It's nice to be able to discuss it with someone who's experienced the condition first hand.
Even though nothing conclusive has been...

Re: Sir Jolly's having a bad reaction

I'm glad the video could be of some help. Could you keep us informed of whether your vet comes up with anything?
As you can tell in the video, Oscar also had a bit of wing flipping involved with...

Re: Sir Jolly's having a bad reaction

I can't remember exactly how long it took Oscar's toe tapping to subside after that episode -- maybe a week or a bit longer -- but like Jolly, it slowly went away. At least when he has just a mild...

Re: Sir Jolly's having a bad reaction

I took your advice, Stephen. I deleted the video and reuploaded it as an unlisted video. I trust that it works this time.
Was Jolly like this during the day? Oscar's got worse in the evenings. He...

Re: Sir Jolly's having a bad reaction

I think the problem I have with the video is that when I go into my privacy settings, it will only allow me to add an email address to share the video with.

Re: Sir Jolly's having a bad reaction

Hi, Stephen,

Sorry about the delayed response. I went away for a couple of days.
When I got back, I was keen to read about Jolly's progress. I'm glad that he's better now. Like you, though, I'm...

Re: Sir Jolly's having a bad reaction

I didn't get that video up because I couldn't work out how to do it. I think someone mentioned doing it through YouTube, but I don't have an account there and it seemed convoluted. Is there another,...

Hi, Stephen. Here's a link to my post.

Re: Sir Jolly's having a bad reaction

Hi, Stephen.
What you described is exactly what happens to Oscar. Curiously, it's always his left leg too. Earlier this year he had a major episode, followed by another one several months later....
