Breeding birds to adapt to the new owner on the environment and do not spend too
much time, after adapting to the environment is very strong and resilient in the aviary
is very active parrots, such as the Asian Long-tailed parrots flying birds can provide

raising birds cute.


Purchase of breeding adult birds to breed, then the difficulty is not high, providing a
solid nest boxes, nest boxes place the higher the better, they are very dedicated
parents, usually after the birth of litter chicks better care by their parents, during the

medium to large parrots ideal choice, females were more aggressive bad move, the
female parrots in the world of compromise is dominant with a dominant position,
most of the male birds than female birds are fierce, in keeping care, compared
Eclectus Parrot Other medium to large parrots difficulty, primarily because their
digestive system is very long, require large amounts of fiber and vitamins, it should be
the main feeding of vegetables, fruits and soft food, vitamin A intake is particularly
important to them; in recent years into the wild import large quantities of birds and
even young birds, mortality is very high, plus many more wild chicks imported to
Taiwan in the winter, so casualties than most people can imagine; a total of about 10
kinds of sub-species, different from other parrots, all Eclectus Parrot subspecies
belongs to a separate genus, there is no other similar type of blood relationship.

Length: according to different sub-species, about 30-40cm

Distribution: very wide, mostly in the Indonesian territory of Papua New Guinea and
Papua New Guinea, many islands, the distribution of population in Australia is at the
northern tip of Cape York Peninsula.

Overall Summary:

Eclectus Parrot about 10 subspecies - 1. Fusimarui Eclectus Parrot (Eclectus. r.

commonly known as the golden tail compromise, that is Fusimarui Eclectus Parrot
size is 2 large, but with Yi Lu Eclectus Parrot is almost great; many breeders do not
breed the concept of pure descent, many of the Eclectus Parrot is the cross breeding of
different subspecies, the identification of subspecies of Eclectus Parrot very difficult,
identification large part of the subject by the females of the external features, and
most of the male bird looks almost the same, difficult to identify, but still there is
some evidence to follow ─ only three kinds of sub-species females blue eyes
rimmed the edge of a circle, is the Australian Eclectus Parrot, Eclectus Parrot and the
red edge Solomon Island Eclectus Parrot, one identification method described above
the 10 subspecies of the first species of females abdomen 1,2,3 feather color is purple,
the first 4,5 , 6,7,8 kinds of females abdomen plumage color is dark blue, while the
first 9,10 species is not blue or purple abdomen, whole body are all red, this two kinds
of sub-species of parrots breeding in general is very rare is a rare bird species, but
only by the male body size and plumage color shades to distinguish; Eclectus Parrot
habitat for a variety of terrain, forests, grasslands, mangroves, coconut and other
agricultural areas below 1900m altitude areas, the most often crops, coastal areas and
low elevation forests infested, often outside the breeding season alone, in pairs or a
small group gathered in the breeding season, often only the male birds gather, gather
very noisy, sharpest strong, general are foraging in the trees, in some areas of New
Guinea as they were destroyed crops locust infestation, the main food is fruit, buds,
flowers and nectar, nuts, seeds, particularly fond of bananas, mangoes, figs and
papaya Although most of compromise in the number of parrots fairly stable, but the
situation is very serious poaching in the security of this Island, Shabaluya Island and
Haru ancient island populations in the long-term catch poachers these three islands
under the compromise Parrots have become extinct, another rare Keneiliya Eclectus
Parrot is also endangered, the total number of parrots around the world should
compromise more than 300,000; the breeding season vary, once produced two eggs,
the female in the incubation period, 2 times a day leave the nest to the male bird
feeding, 26 days after hatching, Yu Mao Changcheng after 3 months.

Feeding Abstract:

Captive parrots are common compromise is the more quiet, medium and large parrots
parrot, but still screamed noisy sometimes, especially in the evening; but has been
imported from the wild in Southeast Asia have never stopped a compromise, most
mortality of wild parrots compromise higher mortality rate than many wild parrots
much higher, 10 million do not be cheap to buy for; best kept in large cages, the
newly introduced reared Eclectus Parrot slow to adapt to new environments and
master, especially females, will not used to start a new food or rejection, the death of
wild birds is very easy to fall ill, the female to the male bird sometimes aggressive,
fresh branches to provide them with toys, eating seeds and other feed, if only to
provide seed will be their health very unfavorable, will cut short-term life; hand to
support the male bird friendly, lively and loved ones, for when the pet birds, females
are more shy and introverted personality and outward away from the public and many


And other medium to large parrots contrast, the breeding Eclectus Parrot is
comparatively less difficult, in the hatched young of the females on the male is often
offensive, can breed throughout the year, usually over the Eclectus Parrot breeding
stable and will continue to reproduction, but often unfertilized eggs or during the case
the birds do not brood, litter produced two eggs, the incubation period of about 28
days ,70-80 days after the chicks Yu Mao Changcheng, small parrot about 2
compromise years of age are capable of reproducing large be 4-5 years.
