I talked to Skye today, she's coming back with (among others) A male Eclectus she describes as shy, but sweet. Said he's pretty young and should come around quicky. A Hawk Head Parrot () which I have always lived but I hear they are not great pets, very loud, bratty, and aggressive. Like a huge Parrotlet. LOL He's very scared, said he needs a lot of work. And a Jardines? I've never heard of this, anyone else? She said very sweet and quiet birds and difficult to find as rescues. I'm really thinking about possibly adopting a larger parrot but I'm going to spend time working with them and helping her first and do a lot of research, plus maybe foster one for a while before I make up my mind. Thoughts?

Eclectus parrots are not very good companion birds, though the male are a bit better than the females. They can be very good talkers however, and are lovely birds. I don't recall Jardines being that great a companion bird either, but I haven't work with many of those, just been around a few over the years that weren't trained, as well as seeing them at some of the bird shows back in the day.

Malachi, in all fairness and being as objective as you can, would you say parrotlets are good companion birds?

I think it's a great idea to help her out and get used to larger parrots before jumping in and getting one!

I eventually want to adopt and older larger parrot, but knowing the extent of commitment, space, time, and money they take... let's just say I'm going to be in the 'research' phase for quite a while

Hope to hear more about these birds!

Yeah it's kind of tough, I'm really glad I can just get to know them or foster one.
We've talked about adopting a larger parrot but its a really big consideration based on the little birds. I don't know how they would react to a larger parrot. Everyone gets along really well right now, and its nice to have everyone out at the same time. They at least don't go after each other. If we give them their own space they tolerate eachother. It would be more dangerous if a big bird ever decided to go after a little one, or if the little ones landed on his cage. I don't really want a situation where somebody MUST be caged im affraid it would make time management harder. I also not sure about a larger bird being flighted, because the house is small and i really hate my Birds not being able to fly. The Eclectus is probably to large, just based on the rest of the flock and the house. The Jardine might be a good fit, I think they are just slightly larger than a Conure. Darlene has a red belly and they are in the same family hers seems pretty laid back. I'll have to ask more people what they are like typically.

Well, mine is

I will say that even with those species that can be good companion birds it depends on the training and the individual bird; likewise, I've met individuals from species that are not generally considered good companions that were very good. As an example, I had a particularly bonded and affectionate Eclectus female for many years that made my avian vet comment on how amazed she was every time she saw her...she'd always comment how exceptionally friendly Ruby was.

As she is Tumi's female "twin," I can tell you right now that Melody WILL attack a bigger bird in her home. There is no way she takes to it willingly or peacefully.

There will definitely be careful consideration and separation. You woukd be surprised how good Melody is, her and Jasper do well together. They don't play, but they will share us willingly. A couple times he tried to preen her tail and she was like "what are you doing?" Sometimes they play musical shoulders or chase eachother around our heads LOL

With a larger bird however, we are super cautious and probably over protective. I already had a dream I got a Macaw and he bit Melody toe off, it was a nightmare.
