Hi Owen,

Here's another picture of Sally, female Red Sided Eclectus:

Squak (Male Red Sided Eclectus) the food critique sampling dinner:

Image

Squak getting his share of cuddles and kisses:

Image

It is amazing how sexually dimorpic the females and males are in this species, however if you look at a Male under ultraviolet light then you can see the markings just like the female where the colour changes from red to blue to burgundy. Until recently they were thought to be two different species all together. Then when the birds did not pair up and breed people grew suspicious :-)

Get yourself a parrot my friend; I hear that the Indian Alexandrines are similar to Eclectus in temperament. They are not like Greys who are “One Persons Birds”.

Squak is getting better, spent a fortune at the Vet the other day, has some problem with the feet, he will not perch now, hope he gets better soon, will take him to the vet again on Monday. Waiting for him to get back to his normal self.

Fred the IMs are mainly in the Punjab/rajasthan area.I am going to the Uttaranchal area,i dont think the local mastiffs there will do well in our hot ,humid Mumbai weather. I keep reminding my contacts in Punjab, high mortality of litters is a real problem! They just dont take good care of the pups :-(.I'm definitely on the lookout for an IM pup for you.
Regards,
Yaj.

Going through this thread made me nostalgic.

I have a stray mongrel named ‘Kalu’ right now. I love pets but my schedule has come in my way of spending time with them. Since the last few years I have reduced the number of pets I own.

I was 5 when I started keeping Pets.

The firts one was a 2ft fish tank with guppies. I the graduated to a larger 3.5ft tank with tropical fishes. At 7 had a white pomerian dog named Daisy along with the tank. At 10 bought another tank for Fighter fish breeding.

At 13. I had one 5.5 foot communal tank, 3 Breeding tanks for Angels, Goramis & fighter. One Nepali parrot named Ganga Ram.

At 15 I had One Crow called 'Kaka' this was rescued during the monsoon. One local tota named 'Mintu' again rescued. Both were released after they became airworthy. The crow spent six months while the tota spent 2 months with me. Both were never caged.

We shifted our residence when i was 17. I had to let go of my smaller tanks and brought the big one to the new house.

I rescued one Doberman pincer pup from a drunken havaldar, unfortunately the dog was bitten by strays and was rabid spent two months with me after which we had to lay him to rest.

I bought Simba from Bangalore. Flew the pup down from Bangalore.( Great Dane ) who lived with me for 13 years and then left for his heavenly abode. ( 1992 - 2005). Simba was 6 feet nose to tail and three feet ath shoulder. Will post pictures later

Rescued a German shepherd bitch (while Simba was around) from a hit and run case. The dog had both her rear legs crushed; could not save her and she died at the Parel hospital while being operated.

Rescued a squirrel from a cat and christened him ‘Chintu’. He made small work of my sofa as he made a nest in it. Lived with me for 4 years and then left in search of a mate.

Rescued a kitten from a demolition site, she was milk white and had blue eyes. Named her ‘Neelu’. Neelu grew to be a fine cat and mated twice. She had a litter of six and the second time of three. We still have two of her “cubs” named Tilu and Pilu. Pilu has one yellow eye and the other blue.

BTW, the communal fish tank still exists with 4 Angles, a dozen of sword fish, one red Tail shark, Silver dollars.

Sorry for the long post could not control my self. :oops:

Thank you. Gavin. My Mom states that I should have grown up to a zoo keeper rather than a corporate trainer. :)

I have not mentioned about the common Rat snake that I had for two weeks which was later released in the Sanjay Gandhi National Park. He was rescued from the society gaurds who were intent on killing it thinking it as a Cobra. We need more education of the masses. If the animals dont survive we dont.

Thanks Inder! Not really planning to breed her.Only reason I've not spayed her is that there is a scarcity of females in an already rare breed. Just wanted to keep the option open.
Usually bitches should not be mated on their first heat, she just came into her first heat at 18 months. So 3 years would be a good age to breed a bitch ,any temperamental,health problems too would be ruled out/detected by that time (most anyway).
Regards,
Yaj.

If I guess right i think you are referring to Moti( Brown on white) on the right column between the two black dogs.I have seen,measured and photographed,taken hair samples from this guy myself last Nov. He was impressive! 31 " at the withers and a magnificent specimen,great temperament too.

I really thought if I ever decide to breed Astra he would be the ideal male.Unfortunately I heard that he died from snake bite a few months back :-( .I still have to confirm with the owners but it was a great loss!He was the best specimen we saw. But his brother at the neighbouring house is also a good specimen, an inch or two shorter but more muscular and balanced.He is the uncropped dog on the right hand column on the IM site.

I f you are referring to the brown on white dog on the left side I dont think he has the correct head for the breed though he maybe a good physical specimen,personally i wouldn't breed him.

The white dog with the pink nose looks like he has some bull terr blood,at least in that pic.But judging dogs by pics is really not fair.The best dogs can be made to look freaky and vice versa.Actually most of the pics on the site dont how the dogs properly, bad selection.

Thats right. Most of my birds were rescued, so they were allowed to and did fly away once they were able to. Right now I have a rescued peigon. She got caught in Manja ( Kite Thread). I think she will fly away in a couple of days.

Hi Yaj,

My wife was in India (Delhi) last week, she told me she saw an ad or write up in the papers about adopting indian dogs (I presume indian dog breeds) it was encouraging people to do so. Was that by one of you guys?

Bobby

Sorry I missed this earlier Bobby.The ad campaign is being run by Maneka Gandhi's outfit and refers to rescued stray pariah pups.There is a similar ad by her on some of the TV channels too. I hope it has some impact on the public at large.
