    I don't have a parrotlet yet (although I'd like to get it in a year or two), but the thought of babies and parrotlets crossed my mind. While I'm a good ways from worrying about that, their hopeful lifespan is 15-20 years which means I could potentially (hopefully) be in my late 30's/40's when it...

    I am trying to find links to learn what pairs and genetics are going to produce healthy and unhealthy birds. I also want to know the basics like what colors you can and can't pair. I want to be able to understand the genetics but I can't find any sources that cover all the colors there are, and...

    Hi all, My little blue bean Maisie, who turned 3 this past August, began laying eggs for the first time in May. She is my only parrotlet, so her eggs are unfertilized. She would lay an egg or two, we'd remove it (as she didn't appear interested in them initially), then she would in due time lay...

    I drove to meet the breeder I was thinking about getting my future fid from today and there is no might anymore, only HECK YEAH. I could not have hoped for a more awesome setup for p'let raising. She had eight baby p'lets, pulled for hand feeding about two weeks ago, and every one was super...

    Hi everyone! I'm new to the forum here and excited to be part of the community. My fiance and I are the proud owners of two lovely parrotlets. We love them a lot, but strangely, we don't have fixed names for them. I usually call the male Chubby Man, and the female Lady Bird. We were lucky...

  10. Your Parrotlet's Health
    Hello! I have finally found the perfect place to buy a p'let baby from. However, the drive is 5 hours, something I simply cannot do (gas prices:mad:) Anyway, I am terrified of having a live animal shipped through the mail to my house. Is it traumatizing to the bird? Is it safe/fatal? Is it...

    Hello! I'm new to the parrotlet world! A few months ago, I lost my precious baby Apollo, a parakeet, which had me sobbing for weeks on end. And then, I discovered the magical world of parrotlets through a friend. I immediately fell in love. Now, I feel like a pregnant woman (as all my birds are...

    I was just wondering, is there any way the dove and the parrotlet could possible have babies? I know that may sound ridiculous, but the parrotlet is seriously in love with her, and I was just wondering. Thanks!
