Re: green parrotlets

DO green parrotlets always have blue wing feathers too? Or are they harder to sex?

The way I understand it all males have the blue under the wings except the albino and some heavily pied mutations.

Both male and female parrotlets can have blue eye shadow and blue rumps. Only males have the darker blue on the flight feathers, including green parrotlets. Lutino parrotlets have white where the darker blue is.

All parrotlets can be visually sexed since they are sexually dimorphic except for albinos and creaminos. Sometimes you can sex an Albino by holding the wing under a black light and the blue will show up.

Thank you Jackie and Bryan. I have the opportunity to have another parrotlet - but am not sure if I want to yet or not ... and I don't know how readily this one would accept another either. I don't want breeding to happen so if I did, it'd have to be another male.

Maybe he will just remain an only parrotlet

Tumi is a very happy only parrotlet! If you get another parrotlet, don't do it for the bird, and assume that they will not share ANYTHING! While some parrotlets do get along with other birds, many are not looking for a feathered sibling and display huge amounts of rivalry. If YOU want another bird, then you can go for it, but assume that the new bird will need to be kept totally separate at all times and won't be welcomed. Parrotlets are passionate birds, and they can very ferociously reject any "invaders."

Thanks Ruby ... I was tossing up whether to have another parrotlet, but after hearing of how Squirt probably would not accept another parrotlet - PASS

My budgies and Bourke get along as chatty neighbours (the Bourkes has even learned the budgie flock call LOL) - separate cages and separate flight time mind you - and they get incredibly anxious if one isn't there after about 30 seconds!

Squirt hangs with me the most - of course he goes back to his big cage for rests in a different room and thats when I play with the other birds and fly them.

Thumbs up

The new p'lett would probably be a threat to the one you have now. Chances are, they will not like each other at all. I have seen a few p'lett fights and it is not pretty at all! I will not describe it to you, but I have never seen such aggression!


It is rare that two will be okay together. Usually, if they are raised up together, they will tolerate each other. It is when they get hormonal is when the fights will start. ( or a female comes along).



You have a new one, so bond with this one. Bonding takes a while, even if he or she accepts you at first, don't think it is a solid bond. My Bogie bonded right away, I thought, but as he matured, that was when I experienced a true bond! It was total trust between us.


Send us a picture of your " brood "! We don't mind seeing pics of different birds living in the same home.
