Eclectus Parrot - Eclectus Roratus

We are not yet keeping a waiting list for Eclectus parrots.
They are relatively new for us and we need to make sure they are settled and comfortable before they start to breed.

The Eclectus Parrot (Eclectus Roratus) is a parrot native to the Solomon Islands, Sumba, New Guinea and nearby islands, northeastern Australia, and the Maluku Islands (Moluccas). It is unusual in the parrot family for its extreme sexual dimorphism of the colors of the plumage; the male having a mostly bright emerald green plumage and the female a mostly bright red and purple/blue plumage. For many years it was thought that the male and female Eclectus were different species of parrots due to their vastly different coloration.

Large populations of this parrot remain, and they are sometimes considered pests for eating fruit off of trees. Some populations restricted to relatively small islands are comparably rare. Their bright feathers are also used by native tribespeople in New Guinea as decorations.

There are 9 subspecies, and three dubious, or hypothetical subspecies. One extinct species, the Oceanic Eclectus Parrot, was discovered in the fossil record in the late 1980's.

We do not currently have an open waiting list for these beauties. Once they settle in and start breeding, then we'll start a list. They need time to get relaxes and used to the new environment.

This is Damon and Electra. They are a proven breeding pair and have successfully raised 5 chicks so far. They first bred in 2019 and raised 3. They were not permitted to breed in 2020 due to COVID. In 2021 they raised 2 chicks.
This is Boris and Natasha. They are also a proven pair having raised 3 chicks in 2021. Both pairs have been given nest boxes and we're hoping babies will come before too long.

This is Sir Lancelot. He's a male Grand Eclectus and we would love to find a beautiful girl for him.
