of the eclectus
All babies are weaned and as
appropriate, have had polyoma shots.
The male and female Eclectus are very different looking. The male
Eclectus are green with a yellowish beak, while the females are a red
color with a black beak. Underside of male's wing is bright red with a
small patch of blue.
The red-sided and the vosmaeri are two of the Eclectus sub species most
commonly bred in the U.S. The vosmaeri is the larger of the two, with the
male being the typical green with red markings and a large coral colored
beak. The hen shades from red to lavender, with yellow at the vent and tip
of the tail. The head seems rather small for the size of the body. The
red-sided hen has a narrow blue eye ring and a very brilliant red head,
neck, and upper chest - with a distinct change to brilliant blue below.
They seem to have larger, blockier heads than the vosmaeri, and slightly
more compact bodies. Beak and feet on the hen are black.
Health note: These parrots have unusually long digestive tracts; to
remain healthy they require large amounts of fiber in their daily diet.
Also - they require a variety of fruits.
