Willie's Becoming A Senior

I just can't believe how time flies! I remember coming on here and chatting about my Willie being young and asking all the newbie questions about owning a Parrotlet but now as of sometime in June Willie will be 8! Does this mean he is now a senior? How long do they usually live on average?

In captivity, parrotlets can live between 15 and 20 years, with 15 years being more normal for all the parrotlets that I have seen posted on the web. My bird also has a June hatch day. June is a popular month for that!

I understand what you mean. I got my girl as a rescue in 2013. In April that is 7 years we know she has been alive and our guess is she was about 3 then. So that is about 10 years. Seems like yesterday.

Thank you for that information. I'm very relieved that he could live up too 15 or so! I remember reading somewhere on the internet that 10 years might have been the age limit for them and I was getting sad over that. Perhaps I misread.

Thumbs up

Treat the p'lett right and you should expect them to live almost 20 years. BODIE was the oldest in this forum before he passed away. He was 18 years and 2 months old. He was green. Green p'lett's seem to live the longest because they are the truest p'lett . The original p'lett was green and is the direct cousin of the Green Amazon parrot.

But, with tender care, I believe any color can live up to 20 years of age! That is a long, long, long time for such a small bird!


Thanks for posting!


David, Vicki, and Ricochet ( 8 months) and in Spirit, Bogie, 10 years, 2 weeks when he passed last September.


PEACE!

Willie is middle age. Maybe he will start going through midlife crisis. My Timmy lived to be 13.5
