  1. Parrotlet Talk
    I was in the bird store and saw two different (equally adorable :)) parrotlets. I won't get one of these two specifically (they're bonded). But, in general, what should I be looking for when I pick a parrotlet (I don't mind about color)? One parrotlet was hanging back on his perch and seemed...
  2. Parrotlet Talk
    Hello! I grew up with budgies and was considering getting one for myself, but I discovered the lovely parrotlet at the bird store. :D I've read a lot online and got myself a book, but I'm hoping you all can help me determine if a parrotlet will be happy with me. I guess the question is: "easier"...
  3. Introductions
    Hey all! I've been a parrotlet enthusiast my whole life. I have a vast amount of experience with all sorts of animals. I have a 9 year old chinchilla that I've had for abour 7 years now, and we get along great. Lots of time spent together, lots of love. I'm thinking of adding a parrotlet...
  4. Your Parrotlet's Health
    Marvel and Loki seem to have (had) lice damaging their feathers. Most of the damage is on their tails and back, possibly on their flightfeathers, though it is hard to check since they won't let me handle them much yet. It looks like this, *click* (not my picture) though the shaft doesn't seem to...
  5. Parrotlet Talk
    I'm hoping for some advice. I have a 4-year-old male Pacific Parrotlet. I'm a graduate student living in St. Louis, MO, and when I got him as a baby, I thought I would have enough time and space for him. Now, I'm working close to 12 hour days and most weekends, and I find that the only times I...
  6. Parrotlet Talk
    I live in Florida. Several hours from Tampa, Miami, Orlando - Davenport area, and about 5 - 6 hours away from the Panhandle. If I drove, I would be about 8 to 13 hours away from Atlanta Georgia. So not too bad of a deal. I do though would want someone to meet me halfway if they lived in Georgia...
  7. Parrotlet Breeding
    I acquired Stewie (Dilute Blue) April 2012 at the age of 6 months and Emy (blue fallow, split green, split yellow...I think) in July 2012 at the age of 7 months. They have had a very active time of practicing to make fertile eggs. I expected that I'd be seeing eggs quite a bit sooner than now...
  8. Parrotlet Talk
    This is what I've been thinking about since a breeder in my state has babies that I believe were just pulled for hand-feeding. If I can find somebody to give me a ride over after they are weaned I am thinking about getting a little Dilute (American Yellow) male. As long of course as both of my...
