Someone called the pet store I work at asking us if he could sell the bird there, I talked to him and he desperately needed the money so had to get rid of her. I agreed to take her and he brought her to the store, she was in a small chinchilla cage with almost no toys and her diet was seeds. Her feathers are oily and brown and she is very scared. She only lets us change her food, other than that she wants nothing to do with us.. Awards

  Thanks for the vote
You know That Eikes esp. solomons are liken to Cats . Food and love are the two things that they respond to and only on there terms. I believe it will take some time and love to bring her around. I work from home so I have time during the day to spend with the our birds. So We were able helped a fellow not long ago with his Eike. I had her for a month she was from a flea market and in sad shape afraid of her own shadow.
so anyhow every morning after food time and I mean right after I towel her for 30 mintues and talked softly to her (not easy when your a huge man I am the guy that the kids are afraid of ) anyway after about the 20th day she started looking forward to it and I would just open the cage and she would climb right up but boy for the frist week I thought that I might be hurting her ( I was't of course). Same is true for most people the fear is worst then the what we are afraid of.

Just a little information that might help you. I am no Bird Shrink and don't claim to be an Expert but I did help Ron and MaryAnn using this method and it may help you I know that most expert say just time and love. I do think that if you do decide to use the same meathod we did have some one else other then the cheif care giver do it. Just in case it doesn't work for you she won't be hateing you.

Come visit me, Pepper & Hercules.

  Hello from Nahla...
Thanks for stopping by and visiting my page. Ha ha, thank you for the comment on my name. My mom has a thing for Disney characters. They just have the best names! You are a beautiful bird and I love your name too! Sounds like you had a rough begining :( My friend Neeko did also. Even though you don't want to come out of your cage I am sure you are in a wonderful loving home and that is what counts! Hope you are having a great day.

Come visit me, Neeko & Nahla.

  Hi Raja
I just love Eclectus birdies. I have some friends with Eclectus birds - I hope you will soften up over time and let your new mommy hold you. It takes alot of time - lots of talking - yummy food and just plain trust but I always believe you will win the birds heart! It took 10 1/2 months before our two cockatiels would finally come out of their cage. I still have not held either one of them - but they always run to the front of the cage for our daily conversations!
Raja, you will see one day that you can trust your new mommy and you will be happy to come out and snuggle with her! You are beautiful!

Come visit me, Joseph & Keeya Tucson.

  Hello from Claire and Chicki
Hello Raja, I hope that someday you learn to trust your mom. We know that it takes time. This is chicki and when I first came to my new home I didn't let anyone touch me for a couple months. Unless of course you were male. I finally got over that and now I love my mom, but I am not too fond of ANYONE else. Maybe someday we will learn to like everyone. Hope so! Here's a vote to you!

Come visit me, Chicki & Claire.

Hello Raja, my brother Pippin told me to come and visit you so here I am. Welcome to the channel! I can't wait to see some pictures of you. Don't worry the camera won't hurt you I promis. It's great that you found a new loving home. And please a chinchilla cage... you are not a rodent! I bet your mommy got lots of toys to play with. Once you get on a nice healthy diet your feather are going to be just beautiful. Well here is a vote stop by and visit when you get the chance.
