Louie the Ekkie

Louie is a male eclectus parrot, hatched sometime in 2009. He was our Craigslist find of the century! We added him to our flock in May of 2015 (near the end.)

He is incredibly social, talks up a storm, has names for everyone in our family (I’m “Hey Baby!” whereas my gentleman caller is, “You’re a good boy!” and his mother is “Louie Louie!”) – he calls for each of us depending on who he wants at a given time.

He absolutely LOVES showers, is highly allergic to corn, and is an absolute lover (of feet. He loves feet.)

If you were able to cross a dog with a bird, Louie would be your dude!
