Eclectus parrots are a vibrant and intelligent species known for their striking sexual dimorphism, where males are typically bright green and females are a vivid red or purple. When it comes to their breeding and eggs, here are some key points:

 Breeding and Egg Laying:
1. Breeding Season: Eclectus parrots typically breed once or twice a year, depending on the environment and availability of resources. In captivity, they can breed year-round if conditions are favorable.

2. Nest: In the wild, they nest in tree hollows. In captivity, a large, secure nest box should be provided. The box should be approximately 24 inches tall, 12 inches wide, and 12 inches deep, with a smaller entrance hole around 4 inches in diameter.

3. Egg Laying: The female usually lays 2-3 eggs per clutch. The eggs are small, white, and oval-shaped.

Incubation:
1. Incubation Period: The incubation period for Eclectus parrot eggs is typically around 26-28 days.

2. Parental Care: In captivity, the female usually incubates the eggs and cares for the chicks, while the male provides food. It’s important to minimize disturbances during this period to avoid stressing the birds.

Egg Care:
1. Temperature and Humidity: Maintaining the proper temperature (about 99-101 degrees Fahrenheit) and humidity (around 50-55%) is crucial for successful hatching. In captivity, an incubator may be used if the eggs are removed from the parents for any reason.

2. Monitoring: Regular monitoring of the eggs is important to ensure they are developing properly. This can include candling (using a bright light to see inside the egg) to check for signs of development.

Common Issues:
1. Infertility: Infertile eggs can occur and may need to be removed to prevent contamination of the nest.

2. Egg Binding: Female Eclectus parrots can sometimes experience egg binding, where they have difficulty laying eggs. This is a serious condition requiring veterinary intervention.

 Raising Chicks:
1. Hatching: Once hatched, chicks are altricial, meaning they are born blind, naked, and helpless.

2. Feeding: The chicks rely on their parents (or caretakers in captivity) for food. Hand-feeding can be done using a specialized formula, but it requires experience and care to avoid issues like aspiration or malnutrition.

3. Fledging: Chicks usually fledge (leave the nest) at about 10-12 weeks of age but will continue to be dependent on their parents for several more weeks.

 Additional Tips:
– Diet: A varied and nutritious diet is essential for breeding Eclectus parrots. This includes fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and a high-quality pellet mix.
– Environment: A stress-free and safe environment helps ensure successful breeding. This includes minimizing noise and disturbances around the nesting area.
– Veterinary Care: Regular check-ups with an avian vet can help monitor the health of the breeding pair and their chicks.

Raising Eclectus parrots from eggs requires dedication, knowledge, and care, but it can be a rewarding experience for those committed to providing the best care for these beautiful birds.

Eclectus Parrots Eggs For sale

Eclectus parrot for sale are attractive and intelligent birds.They are some of the most brilliantly colored of all the parrot species, and they are also some of the most sexually dimorphic. These Eclectus birds are well socialized when young make very affectionate pet birds and enjoy human attention. They are one of the better talkers and delight in making various sounds heard around the home, such as the microwave or the telephone.

Eclectus Parrots have a laid back personality that their humans adore. They are quite content to sit on a perch for hours at a time playing with their toys. These parrots do not like commotion and they do not react well to it.They do not adapt easily to new situations or environments so its’ human must be patient and adjust to having a somewhat shy, three year old child-type companion. They can be very territorial of their cage area. So should be removed and placed on a perch for extensive time periods, at regular intervals and preferably daily.

The Eclectus personality has been misunderstood. Many have said this species is boring, dull, lethargic and even stupid. This is not the case. The Eclectus exhibiting these behaviors is showing its reaction to stress. Eclectus is an intelligent bird and when taught properly, they are capable of cognitive behavior from a very young age.

The Eclectus is not a demanding bird and is relatively easy to care for; however, they prefer a daily routine. They are slow to adjust or adapt to new things. If you are providing your Eclectus with a new toy, for example, introduce it to him outside the cage. Then let him see it outside the cage for several days before you hang it in the cage. They love new toys but they will stress at a rapid change in their environment.

Homes with children, plenty of company, and lots of play and activity is not the best home for an Eclectus. But they do make a good pet for someone who lives alone, rarely has company, and where the environment and daily routine does not change. These parrots can also be rather noisy and are best suited to environments where their loud calls are not a bother.

Female Eclectus are the dominant gender. Consequently females tend to be louder and more moody than the males. When a female reaches breeding age, she may become more aggressive. She may also become occupied with checking out nooks and crannies around the house or aviary, looking for potential nesting spots.
