Your birds are cuties! Both budgies (parakeets) and cockatiels make a good first bird. ANY bird has the potential to bite. ANY bird left without food for days can potentially die.

Yes, the breeder is correct. Any sort of tent or coconut can promote hormonal behavior in a parrotlet, and it has a very high likelihood of doing so with a female.

Mutations occur in nature as well, even before people were breeding them. Often though the birds with the mutations did not live as long as the other birds since they were most visible to predators.
