You've got to see it to believe it!
The Trained Alexandrines have been performing faithfully for 15 years here at Parrots In Paradise, and prior to that we traveled all over for 5 years.
They have happily worked for many bus groups and visitors over the years. In that time we used positive reinforcement, rewarding them with praise and treats after a trick. Our parrots were never punished when they did not perform.
Knowing the birds are having a ball is great fun for the young and old. The bird's ability to solve puzzles and evidence of cognitive thought has to be seen to be believed.
But time has taken it's toll on not only the parrots but also on the humans.
So it was decided to do one final show for a professional vidographer in order to capture all of the show in spite of our losing one of our parrot team to a stroke and another to cataracts.
The Videographer was able to cobble in the missing performers tricks thanks to old videos.
So now when you visit you get the show in it's entirety. Nothing is missed.
We can do nothing about Lena who was taken by the stroke. But Kelele, who has cataracts will, once he is fully blind, will be given an eye operation, because this bird gave faithfully of himself for 20 years, and he will likely live at least the same again, so he deserves to be able to see in that time. So we are saving to get the $4000 for his operation.

BIRDS FOR SALE
Eclectus | Alexandrines | Congo African Greys
Eclectus roratus polychloros (Papua New Guinea)
To order a companion
Phone 07 54387719
We have Eclectus parrots coming through all the time and all of them hand raised by Dail. They're all at different stages at the moment, so you'll have to call in to see what is available.
Because our babies are in incredible high demand we have a waiting list.
All the licensing has been changed since end of August 2020 so now when buying our Eclectus because they are originally from
Papua New Guinea roratus polychloros
the Standard Native Animal Keeping license is all that is required and costs around $60.20. Don't quote me on the price as this seems to change regularly.
BUT on this license you are NOT allowed to breed on this license.
The difficulty is when phoning the Wildlife Management there seems some confusion, possibly because of all the changes, not all seem to be able to hand out the same story.
Remember the baby you are buying is no different from a 2 year old child and really needs to be treated in much the same way. In the wild, Mum and Dad would do everything necessary to teach their young to survive and thrive.
When taking on a new baby you are taking over for the parents!

All of our Alexandrine babies are hand raised by Dail
These babies are gentle and very tame and get snapped up really quickly. There is a down side, we can only ship in AUSTRALIA. Sadly if you are in another country we are unable to ship them to you. It is amazing how many people from America would like to have one of these amazing babies and we have to say sadly, no.
Weaned babies available NOW.
We will be hand raising ALL and if you are after a specific sex, they would need a DNA test, the results generally take two weeks to come back. YES most people want Boys! But girls can talk and make just as nice pets. These babies are now 5 months old.

SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT!
Many breeders sell parrots without making clear that, while these birds make fantastic companions, it is through the youngster period they are at their best. When the bird reachs adulthood the problems that come are simple yet can be devistating.
Humans invented celebacy for humans. We are not able to neuter parrots, so when parrots reach sexual maturity they need to breed.
If the bird has been brought up in a
loving caring family without any feathered companions the chances are
this bird most likely thinks it is a human. This is called imprinting.
Sadly this results in parrots getting hormonal, stressed and in some cases aggressive. It can start plucking or even try to mate with a human. It is at this point some members of the family start to find the bird difficult to live with.
It is not long before the poor bird is sent to spend more and more hours
in it's cage, or is found a new home. Sadly it is by this time that the birds brain is so messed up that it is no good for breeding.
The point is if you are thinking of getting a parrot for company, then please give a thought to it's future and factor in a partner at some point, well before the bird reaches maturity. You'll get twice as much affection and will have a well rounded and contented Parrot!
