Eclectus Parrots are highly intelligent and have a strong social nature. Because of this they require high physical and emotional security from their owner as well as a balanced diet, routines and daily play. A good supply of toys and social interactions will prevent boredom and behaviors. Emotional interaction will keep the Eclectus stimulated and play will keep them busy. The Eclectus is a very independent bird if given the opportunity.
