Pretty Bird's Story...
Pretty Bird is a female Eclectus. She's hand tame and likes to share meals with her foster family. She prefers a calm environment; therefore, she may not like being around small children or living in a noisy atmosphere. If she is scared she will let out a high-pitched screech.

As you can see Pretty Bird is a feather picker, especially when she finds herself in new situations. She is quiet and easy going, though. She makes quiet cooing sounds when she is happy or wanting attention. She also says, "Hi" and "Step up," and she barks like a Chihuahua!

Pretty Bird tolerates some petting but generally does not like to be rubbed on. Her favorite place to hang out is on your shoulder. She loves to eat fruits and most vegetables. She is very gentle when taking food from your hand, and she is very careful not to drop it once she has a hold of it.

Pretty Bird is initially nervous when meeting a new person but will come around fairly quickly in a calm environment. Eclectus parrots don't produce any feather dust, as they have oil glands rather than dust glands for preening. This is a great option for people who have allergies.

Pretty Bird's approximate hatch date is 2001, and his adoption fee is $200.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Pretty Bird, a St. Louis Eclectus was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Eclectus for sale in St. Louis, or seeking a Eclectus from a breeder in St. Louis.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in St. Louis already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a St. Louis breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Eclectus breeders who help with Eclectus rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in St. Louis paves the way for another one to be saved.
