    Jan, I hope things go well in the next few days. When one of our ' own' is sick, we all try to pray them back to good health! It usually works. We all love Bodie very much!

    "he still plays with his paper towels and plastic balls by dropping them on the floor and watching me clean them off and put them back."

    I had to laugh when I read this, almost had diet coke flying out my nose. Don't drink and read at the same time.

    What is with the dropping/throwing toys and other things on the ground? It is the one thing I can guarantee that Bart does during the day. I am always picking up something. Bart is not allowed on the floor, so sometimes I think he does it to say "Well, my toy is down there, so I should be too.". Other times it just to control me. Or my favorite: just because I just finished vacuuming the floor, he goes and throws his popcorn or strawberry on the floor.

    Thanks for the laugh.

    Jackie & my owner Bart.

    PS: I had to add that we had to remove any small object from the top shelf of the computer desk, because Bart likes to drop them right in front of me while I'm typing.

    Hi Jan & Bodie,

    Thanks for asking about Bart's age. My husband and I were hoping that Bart was around 10, but my parents have just bought their home that they have been renting for 13 years. My parents thought that they got Bart about a year after they started living there. At the time they purchased Bart, it was said that their lifespan is about 25 to 35 years. Now I read it is less about 15 to 20 years, but no one knows for sure. If Bart can survive to 20 +, my husband and I would be happy. We have only had Bart for 2 years and want to have him for a long time, because we love him to bits. Bart doesn't have a leg band, he did when he was younger, I think the vet may have taken it off. So, we can't find the info on his age that way. We'll just keep looking for the purchase papers.

    Bart is fully flighted. He was clipped when my parents purchased him, but with two close calls they decided to let his flight feather grow in. One being, Bart was on the floor and my father I guess you would say half stepped on him. A rush to the avian vet and Bart was given a clean bill of health. The second, Bart escaped from his cage when no one was home. When my parents got home, our dog (English cocker spaniel) was giving Bart a slobber bath and play with him. The dog wouldn't intentional hurt Bart, but because of the size difference they felt safer if Bart could fly up high and perch should it happen again.

    I think Bart is still very active for his age. He does take more naps during the day. His playing has changed, he doesn't play with his toys as much as he use to. When he was young, he would hang up side down a lot. Now, he's only up side down when he lands the wrong way on his cage door. He doesn't like being up side down to much. He doesn't play with his hamster wheel the same way. Instead of hanging off it, he sits in it. He still does his frenzy flights about twice a day, just skimming our heads. He still likes to inspect things, especially what I have in my hand at the time. Get into things he shouldn't. All the normal thing parrotlets like to do. I think he just likes being with us and being cuddled a lot.

    Do you see a difference with Bodie in the aspect of age?

    Sorry for the long message and thanks again for asking.

    Jackie & Bart.

    Hi there!
    We live in Marina actually, but when I say that no one knows what im talking about haha. We got our little Everton from a breeder in Modesto that was recommended to us by Sandee from the Parrotlet Ranch in Santa Cruz. We had a hard time finding anyone local who had babies. Where did you get your Bodie? I was just reading your post on the age of our parrotlets, 11 is really impressive! Its neat to find a few "local" people on here. When I've been telling our friends and family about our new addition to the family no one (even a most of the people at Petsmart and Petco) know what a parrotlet is.

    Thank you for the address, but I don't want to give pilou away, I'd rather pay someone to keep him for me until I come back.
