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!
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.
Eclectus roratus polychloros (Papua New Guinea)
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 $59.20.
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.
and Jewelies girl
It was a BAD dog!
Jema and Lilly, Jemillas girls have a new home and they love their new mum!
The look of happiness on all the faces is why I breed these wonderful birds.
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
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!
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
