The gorgeous Eclectus parrot should be at the top of the list for anyone who owns a companion bird and places a high value on appearance. The hue of the males can range from emerald to lime green, and the males of all subspecies have a candy-corn beak that is brightly colored with a variety of colors. Females of the Vosmaeri subspecies have a daisy yellow band on the end of their tails in addition to varied hues of red, blue, lavender, and purple on their bodies. Males of this subspecies do not have this band. Beaks of all adult females are completely smooth and jet black in color.
It is generally agreed that Eclectus parrots, in general, have a very low noise level, making them an excellent choice for apartment life. They require the largest cage or aviary that can be accommodated, given the available space and financial resources. Because of the size of their wing span, horizontal space is quite critical. They need to move their bodies every day in order to maintain their happiness and good health. If they are unable to fly in the house or in a large aviary, their cage needs to be wide enough for them to be able to aggressively flap their wings inside of it. If they are going to be confined for an extended period of time, a width of at least three feet is recommended for the cage. Because of this, it is essential to provide them with a parrot tower or tree perch so that they can accompany their owners on their travels.
It is generally agreed that Eclectus parrots are among the top three most talkative species of parrots. Not only are they able to repeat a large number of words and phrases, but some can even learn complete songs. They are on par with talking Amazon parrots and African Greys when it comes to the quality of their speech and the breadth of their vocabulary. They are very skilled at mimicking sounds that they regard to be entertaining.
Eclectus have a voracious appetite! The majority of their diet should be composed of foods that are rich in color, such as fruits, vegetables, sprouts, and greens. They do not require vitamin A injections or supplements, as was originally recommended for them. They take in the vitamin A that they require by consuming foods that are orange, yellow, red, and green in color. Some examples of these foods include pomegranates, mangos, cantaloupe, carrots, red and green bell peppers, kale, collards, dandelion, and other types of greens. When it is available, it is best to feed all parrots produce that was grown using organic methods. Eclectus parrots are relatively simple to care for as long as they are provided with the appropriate nutrition and lots of love. They are very much liked by the people who keep them as pets in their homes as companion birds.
