I was sitting in a flea market looking for a new home because I was with a family who could no longer give me the love and attention I needed and I started to pluck my feathers when they decided it was time for me to find a new home. That’s when I found the perfect couple. They came in our booth looking at a Blue and Gold Macaw that my grandpa ended up buying when I took the leap on to the one I wanted to be my mom. Her and dad fell in love with me that moment and took me home. Since I have been with my new family all of my feathers are starting to come back beautifully. I also have an awesome sister who is a Cat but I love her all the same. We usually chill with mom while she does her work.. Awards

  Hi! Kricket,

You're handsome. My Mommy wanted to get an Eclectus Male but saw me a Rose Breasted Cockatoo in the Classified section of the paper. So she bought me instead. I'm soooo glad she did cause I really like it here. Mommy is my third owner and she said I'm in my Forever Home and I live in an Avian Accent Cage (more like a pc. of furniture). Please come visit me, my Sister, Cheyenne and my 2 Brothers, Parker and Apache. I'm leaving you a vote. Bye for now.

  Thanks for the Reply
If you yet to see a great bird store ( which there are few) Try 12 tweet he is located off 75 in Brandon about 45 miles from you but its worth the trip. I use Animal Crackers in Sarasota but this guy is only birds the cleaness stroe I have ever been in. he also has a gret web site . the only thing is they are very (i don't know ) pasion in there belives . Like they are not fans of Amazons we only have one but I think that she is just like a Lab dog. I was also told that Eclectus had a personalty of a Cat. so ther you go .

Come visit me, Pepper & Hercules.

I was wondering if you were talking about the red barn or Gunn Highway ,anyhow. We got a few birds but no Eclectus yet, the Red sides are my fav. keep up the good work. you can post your responds on pepper (blue front amozon) from Sarasota. page I've got my colt below me there.

Come visit me, Pepper & Hercules.

  Re: Should I?
As far as getting an eclectus yes they are a worthwild bird. I also had a drive a while to get mine but it was worth it. As long as you are willing to take the time and meet all the needs of an eclectus. I would recommend reading up on the species If you go to the bird species link on this page you can get some valueable information. Also if you are the same person that noted you live in a basement I would make sure you take the bird out as much as you can and get him/her soicalized because they are a very social species. Also I would recommend getting the male because they are easier to work with.

Come visit me, Kricket.
