So, You Are Thinking about Getting a Pet Eclectus Parrot

Complete Psittacine by Eb Cravens

Most Eclectus Parrots have the potential to become wonderful companion birds. When raised sensitively and with knowledge of the genus’ idiosyncrasies, these hookbills are phenomenal house pets. They are seldom noisy, are not destructive, remain peaceful and complacent nearly to a fault. Though some individuals, which are not properly fledged and taught to be active when young, have been wrongly termed ‘boring’ or ‘sedentary’.

Eclectus prefer to watch things around them with scrutinising stares, move about with calculated expenditure of energies, and offer a contemplative demeanour when observed on a perch or in their cage. Their normal attitude towards other species of parrot in a household is wide toleration and indifference, though I did have one young male pet that became good friends with my Red-lored Amazon.
