Eclectus are so beautiful. All the once I have known were nasty. Are yours nice? I ahve nevr heard of a hawkhead. I will go look it up.


Beautiful!



Ack. Picture will not work, just google Hawkhead parrot. Really stunning looking with the crest flared. Kinda ugly otherwise. LIke a sleeper hot rod.

I have a female Eclectus. She is very sweet and a good talker. Not nasty a bit. We got her very young. My husband did the training and did get bit a few times until she realized the strength of her beak. It is a lot like training a puppy not to bite. She is now a wonderful addition to our family.

Just like with puppies, it is tempting to play with new babies all the time, but it is really important to not spoil young birds with too much attention since they need to be safely in their cages when you are at work. They need lots of toys and they need to learn to amuse themselves for some hours in the daytime. She is in her cage until 3:00 when I get home and then she is out until bedtime. If they are trained from the beginning to have a regular schedule it is less likely that they will become screamers and feather pluckers later.

Well, if you worry about like screams and stuff, just get like a Green Cheek Conure. Problem solved.
