I found my mommy when my first mommy couldn't keep me anymore. My feet are all funky 'cause I had rickets when I was little so I needed a special home. My new mommy already had a one footed bird, my friend Sadie, so my first mommy thought new mommy would make a great home for me.. Awards

Hi! My name is Edgar

I am an Eclectus from Moscow, ID.

Eddie Munster

10 years old   M


Nuts and hard-boiled eggs are yummy.

I love hanging out on top of my cage and visiting Sadie.

Stop cleaning the cat box!!

She feeds me nuts and squeaks with me!

I like to scream when I think it's time to go to bed. Even if it's only 6:00pm.
I don't like to take baths-water is scary!

  Hi Edgar
My mom has been busy with school too. She took skin sis to college this past weekend so I've really kinda been left out, but mom says we will do something special soon. the weather is changing so it was not so hot today only 92 I think, how's your weather? Hey do you still have your band or do you have a chip like me? Hunter and Gus found out they came from the same breeder and are probaly cousins, small world huh!

Come visit me, Neko & Shasta.

  Hey Edgar
Sounds like fun. Neko thinks he is supposed to eat anytime someone is eating, right now he is having breakfast and for some reason he has started putting his food inside of his water dish. He picks it up makes a special trip all the way over to the other side of the cage where his water dish is drops it in and can't eat it before it melts away. It make for a messy water dish and I realy hate it but its not my food.

Come visit me, Neko & Shasta.

  Hello Edgar
Well mum is glad to know that im not the only one that tosses the food out of the bowl. Sometimes i like to move the fruit from my fruit bowl into my food bowl and move the food into my water bowl...mum gets annoyed when i do that. Too bad i cant move the water into another container hehe. That sounds like a fun toy to have. Some people told mum to get some Foraging Toys for me...i dont know if they'll be any good though.

Come visit me, Fistik.

  Hi Edgar
im glad you acted quickly to get out of the sink but i cant believe you ended up back in there... Why are our mums so persistent like that. You seem very sweet Edgar. Mum thinks im a "nawty buoy" because if im not happy with something i bite her finger, or her ear. Lately ive been tossing my seed bowl to the bottom of my cage, and mum worries alot and keeps asking everyone if their ekkies do that too. See you later my friend.

Come visit me, Fistik.

  Hi Edgar
Glad you stopped in and been missing you too!! I had some cuddle time with mom today and then when I was on my cage this evening I started making my usual noisy sounds. Dad got me and held me a long time but I really think so he could hear his television program with out me making such a racket. I was real quiet too hihihi “Angels are not so very few—for in my life, I have you”. Stop in and visit me any ole time…your always welcome here!! V4U. Kisses and hugs from your friend, Gus

Come visit me, ~~Gus~~ & Chi chi RIP my sweet girl..

Its hot here all the time but I don't scream much only when the noise volume in the house gets loud. There are a lot of people here and when the TV's get turned up and people start talking all over the house then I have to get in the conversation too and everyone knows I am in the house for 2 blocks over. V4U

  Hi Edgar
No I don't have any aluminum toys I don't think I have ever seen any although I bet they would be a lot of fun and fairly noisy too. I do try to pull my food dishes out of the ring on my cage, the bowls are aluminum and only weigh about 85gms mom says I will get them out of there one day don't know what I will do with them though.

  Hello My Friend
Thats really funny that you scare your kitty friends away like that! Hey Edgar... i was looking at your photo down there, and you also said that "water is just scary" but what were you doing in that sink. Id keep away from the sink if i were you. That definitely is one scary place. Mum tried to give me a bath in the sink one day but i made a BIG mess. Ever since then, i only have showers. Do you like biting the buttons off the keyboard like me? From Fistik.

Come visit me, Fistik.

  Hello Edgar
Thanks for your visit. I dont know why mum laughs at me but im glad im not the only one that farts, Phewww! For this, you have my vote! I see you have a cat friend there, but arent you scared of him? Mum rescued a sick kitten early this year, she looked after her until she was healthy, but i didnt like her at all...she had scarey eyes and sometimes made a hissing sound. I started to get stressed and lost my appetite for a while. Mum was very concerned about me so she ended up giving the kitten away. I suppose she proved her love for me! Im glad you found a good mum and a new friend...i think i'll visit her next. She looks gorgeous! See you later. Fistik

  Hi Edgar
Thought I would fly by to see how you are doing. Mom has me on Lafeber's and I get plenty of fresh veggies and fruit. I came home on Pretty Bird Eclectus but my feathers were not as pretty as they should have been plus that stuff has sugar. What do you eat. My mom does not have a whole lot of time to fix cooked food and I am a little picky and never ate cooked food well. Some times I eat by color alone good thing there no color in the Lafeber pellets. And I just love the Nutriberries.
talk to soon.

  Hi Edgar
Yes that Chi chi sure dont sleep much and is always on the go too. I suspect she bird naps some but never see her do it though. She dont go to bed till mom and dad go around 11 and is up at 6 or before. She is usually quiet but the one morning she sure wasnt!! I keep quiet till mom gets me up and we look out the window and say wow wow and look the day over then I sit on the wastebasket and do my "hurry up" then get a treat and mom takes me back to my cage and fixes me my applesauce and oatmeal then. I got the life eh? Mary went over the mountain today and it didn’t rain so mom said it wont rain for 6 weeks now and dad just laughs at the story. Moms dad always told her if it rains on July 14 then rain for 6 weeks and if not then no rain for 6 weeks and called it mary over the mountain day.“ Please say a prayer for Clyde and Bobbi family cause their skin sis is having health problems right now. I always feel so much better, after a visit with my friends of feather”. Like motel 6, I will leave the light on for you so come visit me any time my friends. V4U….your feathered friend, Gus

  Hi Edgar
oh that was funny and didnt realize you and Sadie are two different types of ekkies either hihihi. Guess I have to observe better here.Yes Sadie needs some lessons from Chi chi maybe but again Chi chi doesnt have any boyfriend either hihihi. I go to bed before Chi chi and you would think she would sleep in at least till I got up but nope that little girl is awake chirping as soon as its daylight!! I think she is like the energizer bunny and runs on batteries hihihi. “Friends are like quilts, lives pieced together, stitched with smiles, colored with memories, and bound by love” Come visit me anytime…I will be here waiting for you.

  Hi Edgar
Mom didnt know ekkies plucked either and when I started to do it then others said we do but not all of us do but is a trait in ekkies. Oh man for my breakfast mom makes me steel cut oatmeal with unsweetened applesauce, Then she makes me a couple of hours later brown rice, beans and veggies and egg. Late in the afternoon I get cut up fresh fruit and I always have my pellets in the bowl as well. Mom also has me on bee pollen and spirulina and another thing to calm me down so I am not as hyper and dont pluck as much. I didnt pluck till I got sick in the winter with the bacterial infection and its like a habit of chewing fingernails in humans the vet said. I was on zupreem but the colore pellets were bad and also on pretty bird for ekkies but the coloring is bad in it and then tried volkmans for ekkies but its full of seed and sunfower seeds so that was bad for me as well. Looks like this one mom has me on now though is helping me so will see since its only been 3 months since I started it. Have you and Sadie thought of having a family? My fister Chi chi is a lovebird and she occassionaly lays eggs but they arent fertile. Mom tries to discourage it as much as possible but it happens anyway hihihi. Mom and her friends and some relatives went to a scrapbooking show and sure had fun. It looked like mom had the most fun if the one with the most bags is happiest hihihi. “Friends are like quilts, lives pieced together, stitched with smiles, colored with memories, and bound by love” Come visit me anytime…I will be here waiting for you.

Mom put a new toy in my cage today, I don't know if I like it or not. It's a big pink rainstick and it makes weird noises. And every time I hit one end with my beak to scare it away, the other end comes around and knocks me in the head!! That makes me hit it harder, and well, you get the idea--it's not working out so well. Mom keeps laughing at me too. I better get back to attacking it, before it sneaks up behind me and smacks me again!

Come visit me, Edgar & Sadie.

  Hi Edgar
Well usually mom just takes me to the sink or the tub and puts me in the shower to get my bath so dont have much choice. now when she runs that sweeper I beg to be sprayed and love it love it love it!! hihihi. What kind of food do you eat and do you do any kind of vitamins? He had a bacterial infection this past winter and started to pluck and still does it occassionally although he has been rechecked and is ok. Just an ekkie trait the vet said so we live with it like a kid that chews their nails hihihi.
I had a good day today. Well I got a bath so not sure that was ok but then we sat out in the yard and had the sun dry my feathers all pretty and shiny so that part was nice. It sure was a hot day but tomorrow rain is suppose to move in so glad we enjoyed the nice weather this morning before it got too hot. “Friends are like quilts, lives pieced together, stitched with smiles, colored with memories, and bound by love” Come visit me anytime…I will be here waiting for you.

  Hi again!
What new food is your mommy giving you now? I'm on lafebers but my feathers arent as green as they used to be :/ I'm not sick though which is very good! I'm sorry you don't like baths. Showers are my favorite! I'm scared of balls though I don't know why. Good to see you again!

Come visit me, Eko.

Gus is a male ekkie just like you!! He isnt crazy about baths either but sprays are ok when the sweeper is running hihihi.
