  1. Parrotlet Housing
    My godmother has a cage that used to house sun conure a some years ago that I'll be able to take when I have a parrotlet and the room for it. While I'm not sure about the exact model it looks like this cage...
  2. Parrotlet Housing
    So I have a parrotlet coming this week. I have 2 finches which live in the Vision M02 and I love it. I probably wouldn't be getting a parrotlet if this cage wasn't so easy to maintain. The finches use every bit of space. They fly from perch to perch, eat and walk on the bottom and chatter all...
  3. Parrotlet Talk
    Maybe there's already a thread for this, but I don't think P is stimulated enough. He continues to scream all day long when I'm not playing with him or holding him. My boyfriend is about ready to get rid of him (I'm fighting this so hard) so I'm trying to figure out how I can stimulate him. I...
  4. Parrotlet Housing
    Hi I'm new to the forum and I don't know how full I'm supposed to make my bird's cage. He's... like 3 years old and I just clipped his wings. Normally I put a couple of toys in there, two food dishes (one for grain one for seed), and a few perches along with his bathing bowl. Everything is...

    I have a female Parrotlet in a fairly large cage, I'd like to get a Indian Ring-Neck Parakeet, which is a much larger bird. Will these two species be able to co-exsist together peacefully?
  6. Introductions
    I am considering getting a pair of parrotlets. preferably from an animal shelter but surely a pair that lived there together and knows each other. I have a room which currently serves as a guestroom. it is 3x4 meters and 3 meters high. As I am working all day I was considering putting a large...
  7. Parrotlet Housing
    I have a huse bag of walnut cage litter. Has anyone used this stuff with parrotlet? I've only used it for parakeets. I'm wondering if it's safe if Fletch where to consume a little bit of it. She like to chew on the pine shavings that are in her cage right now. I could only assume she'd do the...
  8. Do It Yourself
    I'm thinking about getting a parrotlet this summer, and would like to build a cage for him that: A) Is functional and safe for my bird B) Looks nice. I don't like the way all wire cages look. C) Contains messes. I've had budgies in the past and they got seeds EVERYWHERE around their cage. I'd...
  9. Parrotlet Housing
    I've got a parrotlet and he and i have enjoyed the clean life line from prevue because of the side opening doors and the seedguard, but the cage was weirdly tall and narrow. So I found this other cage w/ more functional dimensions - Prevue Pet Products SP850 Clean Life Integrated Seed Guard...
  10. Parrotlet Housing
    Situation: Small apartment. Options are bedroom (where Pippin is currently), or living room. Bedroom: He's loud on weekends when we try and sleep in (and he's AWAKE!!!), but if he's being particularily obnoxious he gets a "timeout" with the door to the bedroom shut. He "flock calls" when I'm...
  11. Bonding and Training
    I have my new blue parrotlet for roughly 3 weeks now and he's really getting used to my home and his new environment. He's only a few months old. However, his wings are not clipped. Yet my mom kept urging me to let him out of his cage despite me telling her his wings aren't clipped. So...
  12. Parrotlet Housing
    Obviously I know this isn't an ideal size. The maximum size I can do is 24x22x36. I'm open to suggestions. My price range is $100, but prefer cheap as possible. I was thinking 1-2 hours of play time. I don't know what the average play time is, so if it's not enough please let me know. Also, if...
  13. Bonding and Training
    I have a blue male and was thinking about getting a white female but was wondering if it was a good idea to house them in the same cage? Will it affect the bond between me and the birds and will they revert to acting wild. I will definitely take them out one at a time to do one on one bonding...
  14. Introductions
    My p'lets (amused with the shortform, it suits their cuteness; convenient too): Vira: Female - Forpus coelestis (pacific/celestial parrotlet) - "wild" green type - estimated hatchdate: November 30, 2012 (16 wks). Cyrul: Male - Forpus coelestis (pacific/celestial p'let) - "american" white...

    Hi everyone... here are some pictures of Milo and his cage setup. Thanks for looking :)
  16. Bonding and Training
    Hello, I appologise if this thread is a little bit here-there-and-everywhere, blame it on lack of sleep and lack of experience on forums etc (this is the first time I've made an account on a forum). I was hoping to in the next couple of months get a parrotlet. So, naturally due to never owning...

    Five days ago we got a 10 week old pacific. He is hand tamed and gets on your finger when I say step up. The only thing is that every time I take him out of his cage he fly’s back to it, wings are cut kind of glides back really.What would be a good technique to help him feel comfortable outside...

  19. Parrotlet Talk
    First of all; I haven't posted anything in here for almost 6 months - sorry about that! I desided (about 3 months ago) to stop all "bonding" with my two p'lets, that they didn't seem to enjoy. That left me with talking to them, and not much else. They have never been happy with that big scary...
  20. Parrotlet Talk
    I'm starting to get worried.:( I have had my parrotlet Skittles for almost 2 weeks but he still doesn't want to come out of his cage and shows no interest in me. Is this normal?:confused: I took out his mirrors. Are there any other "bad" toys I should know about? He loves looking out windows, so...
