Re: Parrot care - US vs Europe

Completely empathise with you there. Cultural differences have been brought up various members, especially by those of us who donít live in US or even Western countries.

Re: Introducing chop to Eclectus

You're getting a baby that's just newly weaned. When they experience a shift of all that they've known, many birds (especially babies) regress a little. Often times we ask that the breeder keep them...

Re: Puberty is Official!

Tbh, I suspect our boy is a bit different than the ekkies you might find in the US or in Australia - both countries that have tried to domestic them for a few generations. An ekkie in either country...

Re: Breaking Point, help please !

Re: Safety device to block smoke?

Many of us parrot owners in Singapore have the Xiaomi Air Purifier (the 2S is still being sold and it's quite affordable, about 115sgd). You can get it from Lazada or even Carousell.

Re: Need advice on what to do

Suyu, I'm the forum member who recommends Light of Life.

Re: Harness recommendations?

Do make sure you get a legit Aviator harness. For the sake of trying, I did buy a knock-off/imitation Aviator harness - it broke within a week and our boy only nibbles at it when his feathers are out...

Re: Teaching Wave

Everyone has a different approach to teaching 'wave'.

We taught 'shake' first, then modified it to become 'wave'.
Whereas 'step up' uses the whole hand, I would only show my index finger and...

I do put foot toys in his cage. He has three bowl holders - one for water, one for dried food, and one for foot toys. Oftentimes, he'll put the foot toy back in the bowl or in his food box (where I...

Night vision - poor. Memory - good.

Our ekkie boy can fly in a dark room because he has the room memorised.
When we take him for walks at night, he can't see well at all unless it's a well-lit...

Re: My parrot's friend flew away. Can my parrot understand and get used to it?

There's a cinnamon found in Woodlands with red leg ring. It might be another member's, but worth a try. Not sure where you live, but some birds have the stamina to fly quite some distance so don't...
