    My Baby Bobo is 4 1/4 months old. Since this morning he hasn't been himself. He is resting a lot more than playing. If I'm not holding him he goes to his little sleep tent. His feathers seem ruffled and he looks likes he feels uncomfortable. There have been a lot of fluffy little feathers and...

    I have a now two year old parrotlet and ive only had him a month... he has some pin feathers coming in but isnt tame yet (were working on it) so he wont let me help him remove the white coat. He is pulling out some of his fluffy feathers on his belly as if he is itchy but weve also had a few...

    I'm not sure what's going on but today while preening, P pulled out two- three small fluffy feathers and when he pulled them out there was blood on the bottom of the feather. Is this normal? I've never seen it before. Now that I think about it, he's been losing a lot of feathers (big and small)...
  4. Bonding and Training
    Greetings, I'm a new parrotlet owner (previous cockatiel owner) and I have a few questions. My parrotlet is 9 weeks old and I've had him for about a week now. So I clipped his wings because Day 1 consisted of me continually trying to get him down from the curtain rod or my Stargate poster, but...

    Roti's pinfeathers on his head have been there for over a year. (I should have reached out sooner but I thought it would get better and my mom was unsure/not too worried and I just have no idea how to help it). His poor little head is shabby looking with a mix match of pinfeathers (kinda like...

    My blue parrotlet, a few months old, is tucking his head in like he's going to sleep quite often throughout the day. He eats normally and sometimes sits outside his cage, but he just tucks his head in and kind of shakes his head a fews times as if he's shivering. It was pretty cold last week but...

    Hello. I acquired Poppet, a ~two year-old lucida, from a retail pet store six days ago. I love her. We get along and our bond has been formed much, much faster than I ever would have anticipated. (I spend almost every moment of our waking minutes with her, so perhaps this is to be expected.)...

    I have a question about my 14 year old male parrotlet. I am extremely concerned and covering every avenue to find out what is wrong with my little guy. I uncovered Georgie this morning to find all the feathers, on one side his chest, laying on the floor of his cage. I was completely shocked and...

    Hi. I had never had a bird before Parrolito, so when we picked him up from the breeder´s house at 8 weeks, it did not occur to me to be more informed about potential poor health signs, but now I am wondering if something happened to him as a baby. He is in really good health, but he finally...

    My +2 year old parrotlet has been molting for so long now, and his head STILL has pin feathers. I know I am supposed to help pick them off, but he wont let me go near them. I give him water to bathe in, but he doesn't seem to want to very often to make a difference! And he freaks out when I try...

    he's new, we got him thursday, and he's been really bold, not stressed-seeming, not afraid or extra-shy. but he spends a lot of time doing what seems like grooming. no feathers a poofing out, he's got a little bit of down sticking out at one or two places, but it's just like a little fluff. is...
