MissBass129 ,

A must have for all future eclectus owners!

I read this book multiple times before we got our Eckie. It goes well above and beyond your standard guide and covers just about everything you need to know! Would recommend to anyone considering bringing one of these beautiful birds into their family!

I really enjoyed this book

I am a new Eclectus parent and i have read three books on them as a specific species and this book is by far the best!! You feel like your learning from someone who live with them not just breeds them.
