    Tofu has had quite the adventure since coming home let me tell ya! She came home with a digestive tract infection and has been on antibiotics and anti fungal from the avian vet for a full week. She went back today for a follow up and gram stain came back totally clear! She does still have a...

    Hi, I'm new to this forum! About 2 years ago, I purchased a turquoise parrotlet named Bubbles from a breeder who supposedly hand-fed her babies. Unfortunately, I do not believe the babies were hand fed. Regardless, I used clicker training to get Bubbles to eat millet from my hand, and...

    Hello fellow forum goers! I am new to the p'let world, but I've always wanted one so this is a dream come true! I have a roughly 3 month old male p'let named Kuro. My experience is moderate; I am passionate about all birds and I've owned a budgie for 5 years (she's my old lady now, haha), but...

    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...
  6. Parrotlet Diet
    I've had Murphy for a couple weeks now and have been trying to ease in fresh fruits and veggies, but he is simply not having it. Murphs will perhaps dab his beak into the birdie mash I made him, but immediately stops and rubs his beak all over the perches like a napkin. I think he doesn't like...

    I just got a baby blue parrotlet about 7 days ago. I have in his cage small hookbill mix but he only eats the smallest seeds and millet. I have put fruits and veggies in his cage everyday since i got him and he won't eat any. Im getting worried...I want him to have a balanced diet. Also would...

    Here is a video of Milo sitting on "his" computer getting scratches. He loves scratches so much he sometimes goes catatonic and lays face down in a shirt or blanket when he is getting them. He will "ask" for them by fluffing up the feathers on his head. It's hard to believe that seconds later he...
  9. Introductions
    Hi everyone! I am new to the forum and parrotlet ownership. I got my first parrotlet last Wednesday. He hatched on 10/1/12 so he is about 3 months. He seems to be adjusting but is very afraid of hands. Well, he will accept scratches and food from fingers but is not at all comfortable perching...

    We brought Sammie home yesterday from a wonderful lady who hand raised him. He is 8 weeks old and fully weaned. She doesn't feel that she has the undivided attention he needs as she has 2 other parrot-type birds. He is sweet and friendly from the first interaction and is stepping up the pace...

    Rex is home! He's adjusting well, and we've been bonding with shoulder naps and head scritches :) He had his first breakfast of 100% seed today too! Here he is warily investigating my yarn and birdie body pile... Maybe I'll get some more varied poses when he's a little more comfortable, haha.

    Here's some pics my breeder has been sending me over the last few weeks, and it's official, there's a gorgeous green male from her April 25th clutch. This guy will actually be Sugarglider's Jasper's little brother too! :D I'm so excited, my grin keeps getting bigger and bigger each time I look...

    Hello everybody, I am a brand new parrotlet owner to my baby girl, Lucie. She is a blue pacific and absolutely adorable. She loves her seed but won't touch it unless I take her out and she can be on my finger as she eats (not a picky eater so that's good). She also won't touch her water. Also...
