"I have a female eclectus who I think is about 11 years old. I adopted her from a man who rescued her from a couple who could not cope with her. He had 27 parrots and could not give her the one on one attention she needed - she also has sprayed legs so she struggled to stand. I don't know the full story except that she hated the husband as he was aggressive. She took to me but bit my husband and my teenage children really badly. All she did was lie at the bottom of the cage and would mess all over herself because she would not stand up. At first I thought I would leave her alone to calm down and adapt to her new home but I slowly started taking her out and speaking to her and building her trust. She then let me was her in the basin and blow dry her which amazingly she loved. I let her walk on the wooden floor in my room for about an hour or two a day and she started getting stronger. She can now perch herself and even sits on the stand and ring unaided. She is so strong it is amazing. One morning I woke up and she was making a terrible noise, I took her to the vet and he found she was egg bound and had to give her a sedative to help her pass the egg. She then layed another 2 eggs all by herself without trouble. I don't think she will ever speak but she does make a humming noise when she sees me and will scream if she can't see me. My hubby has tried everything being gentle and kind to her but she just shook - she now goes out of her way to attack him if her is anywhere near me, she has even bit me if he comes too close to me trying to bite him. I now notice she is lying at the bottom of the cage where she has chewed up her paper. Do you think she is going to lay more eggs? I have heard you can have your bird sterilized - which I think is a good idea for her since she struggles with her disability. Love your site - "
