"I am the proud Mom of an Eclectus pair. Keiko, 3 yrs and Chloe, 2 yrs. I have a background with exotic birds and I brought them both home just as their feathers were beginning to show. Hand feeding was a joy and Keiko truly thinks I'm his Mom. He is amazingly friendly, talks up a storm, is too lazy to fly, lives on my shoulder whenever possible and plays "dead bird". He loves to meet new people and has never even attempted to bite anyone. He is jealous when I give attention to Chloe and he tries to get between us so he can give me a kiss. He's a great traveler and loves to take a shower. Chloe is a little more timid when it comes to strangers but she absolutely loves Mom. She took longer to warm up, but taking their cages from the living room and giving them their own room, definitely made the difference in Chloe's social temperment. She is eager to come out of her cage now and will stay with whoever is currently spoiling her, until they put her back or pass her on to someone else. She says "hello" very clearly and jibber jabbers constantly. She jumps on my shoulder whenever I walk by her and also loves her shower. She and Keiko fight for the best position on the shower perch. She sets her own bedtime. Around 8PM every night, she flies off the couch, my shoulder or where ever she is and walks to her room. We follow behind and pick her up to put her in her cage. We never hear a peep out of her after that. Keiko, on the other hand, has to be sent to bed. He would live on my shoulder if I let him. Thank goodness he has NEVER used me as a potty. He will leave me, go to Dad to do his business, and then return to me. Chloe, on the other hand, could care less where she goes, so I'm constantly cleaning up behind her. We keep a fresh towel on the back of the couch and another on the floor behind. That takes care of most of the mess. The two are considering starting a family and we're anxiously awaiting the first arrivals."
