What size accessories for baby ekkie?
Posted 11 August 2010 - 11:31 PM
* Small 5/16" Tip - Canaries, Cockatiels, Parakeets, Finches and other softbill birds
* Medium 7/16" Tip - Conures African Greys, Quakers, Senegals Amazons and other hookbill birds
* Large 5/8" nozzle - Large parrots, African Greys, Macaws, Cockatoos etc (good for dogs and puppies too)
How about aviator harness? He seems pretty small right now, see picture next to cockatiel, and is very tame right now so I want to get him used to an aviator harness. Should I get the small one now or the medium (how adjustable are they?). Thanks!
The small size Aviator Harness is recommended for birds weighing between 190 to 425 grams such as Amazons (Lilac Crown, Blue Front); Timneh Greys, Yellow Collar Macaws, small size Cockatoos (Goffins, Major Mitchell, Galah, Lesser Sulfur); Chattering Lories; and all Pionus.
The medium size Aviator Harness is recommended for birds weighing between 425 and 600 grams such as Eclectus; medium sized Macaws (Severe, Red Fronted); larger Amazons (Double Yellow, Yellow Nape); Umbrella Cockatoos; and Congo Greys

As for the harness, I have one that came with my blue fronted girl. I don't know what size it is because they didn't give me the package. It just fits Echo so it's probably a small. He doesn't like it when it goes over his head. He could probably use the size larger. I would go with the medium unless he is a very small ekkie. They continue to gain weight as they mature.
What type of eclectus is he? My guy is a red sided.
You will love having an eclectus. They are the best. Congrats!

My Solomon Island Eclectus weigh 350 grams and need a Medium harness. I made the mistake and ordered a small because I used their weight cart as a guide and the head hole was way too small. As far as a bottle, I have a large 5/8 bottle for my ekkies and a 7/16 for my caique. I would not go small, 5/16 for an eclectus. Thats more for a parakeet or canary. Hope this helps.
