Hello from the UK! New Parrotlet owner.

Hey there guys!
I have been a bit of a hidden bird lover for a long time but I have always wanted to get a lil' buddy so this is where my journey, after a whole bunch of research about the species, with a Parrotlet begins!
I acquired a young (4 month and 16 day old) and bubbly Blue Parrotlet named Blueberry! He has now been with me for 8 days.
I am looking forward to the days, months and years ahead with Blue, I will do my best to give him the best life a Parrotlet can have. He is already hand-trained, he steps up onto my hand to get in and out of his cage and he absolutely loves the head scritches.
He has made soo much progress in a week despite being as shy as he was when I first got him, I am soo proud of him.
I look forward to learning as much as I can about the species as well as sharing my experiences with you guys.

I have already been throwing many pictures of him to everyone I know so far xD
I only had one slight incident when I got him, the day after we got him home he tried to fly to the door handle of the room he is now playing in. He didn't realise he couldn't get the height he wanted to and bonked into the bottom of the door. He came straight back onto my hand, but upside to it is shortly after he learned the magic of the head scritches so something good definitely came out of it for him xD. His balance is still not entirely there yet.

Hello and welcome to the forum! Lovely to have you and Blueberry join us! He is beautiful! He looks so sweet!

It sounds like you and Blueberry are off to a great start! Isnít it amazing how fast you get smitten with them? That is great that Blueberry is already hand- tamed. Less stress. And it makes life much easier for the both of you! Yes, they do love getting head scritches. I do not doubt for a minute that Blue has lots and lots of head scritches in his future. It sounds to me like he is a lucky birdie to have someone that just wants to make him happy for the rest of his life. That is good. Most of us on this forum feel the same way about our birds. You are going to fit in perfectly here.

Keep us informed on how things are going and feel free to ask any questions! And if you don't mind - more pictures, please!

What a sweet looking bird full of mischief.
Treat him as a 2-yr. old----keep a close eye on Blueberry when out of the cage.
You may know at 4 months it's "adolescent" time----a tough time for all concerned.
Meanwhile, enjoy Blueberry and keep us informed of his progress.
