I am interested in a male SI Eclectus baby. I have never had that large of a parrot before. I have only had GC conures and parrotlets. I'm ready to move up to a larger bird now. I love everything that I read about them and the breeder tells me they are as gentle as can be. Some things I have read say that they are tempermental though. My husband also doesn't want me to get a real screamer bird and I think that an eclectus might suit his needs there. I'm the primary caretaker though. I can't find a lot of information about their longevity either. I would really appreciate any advice or opinions on the breed. Thanks!
