Poor things! What a way to start life having your own parents pluck your feathers out! It almost looks like the male has some raw skin back there. They'll grow back but I wonder why the breeder didn't pull the chicks for hand feeding before it got this far.I found a local breeder with two ekkies around 2 months old and he said the parents plucked their feathers "a bit". It looks a bit excessive to me and do you think the feather will grow back? He's asking for $2300 which is around $500 cheaper than other more reputable breeders online. So I'm not sure if it's worth taking the risk.

They'll grow back and Id say pretty easily too, as it was parents who done this and not the actual ekkie..just keep ontop of the dietI don't think he's a full time breeder and just happened to have a couple of babies. He said he was hand feeding them and now they had just started eating on their own.
Hi there.Hi, I'm trying to purchase an Eclectus but no local bird shops have it. I did find a guy on Craigslist toselling a 2 yr old one that's not tamed for $2.2k. I've also tried BirdsNow and Birdbreeders.com but too many scammers on there and hard to tell which one is real.
How much does an Eclectus go for on average? I see prices ranging mostly from $3000-$4000. I'm in Northern California. Does anyone know where else I can buy one from a reputable breeder or shop?
I just bought one yesterday from birdbreeders.com for $2700 and should be getting it at the end of August or September.Hi there.
I was looking also and found one on my side of the country.
He has a 1 year old male Eclectus in California. He was asking $2000. Message for contact info.
