    Tofu just finished up a very big molt, still has a few pin feathers on her head but I was checking her out and noticed her wings are alarmingly uneven? I've never seen her wings look like this? She was clipped when we got her originally about six months ago but we haven't clipped her since...

    Tofu is nearing the one year mark here in the next couple months. We got her in October and her hatch day was around June 10th ( so got her at 4 months; just passed the 10 month mark currently). She was going through a big molt when we got her- she never really stopped molting? It slowed down a...

    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...

    So I'm new to this forum, although I've been reading through quite a few things on here since getting my parrotlet Loki when he was 7 weeks. At first he was really sweet and even though it took some time to build trust, only a few weeks in he was flying to my hand/stepping up and letting me give...

    Hey guys! I'm new here, and my little p'let's name it Fletch. She's about 4 months old. My question is, how long is considered normal to molt for? I feel like she's been molting for about 3 weeks now. Some days i think she's almost done, but then the next, she has a head pull of pinnies again...

    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...

    Hello, We are first time parrotlet owners. We have a blue male, and he is around 4 months old. We did our homework, research and even read the Parrotlet Handbook by Sandee Molenda. He has been doing well, but lately he has had some out of place feathers on his tail back and neck/breast area. We...

    Hi everyone! My p'let (1 year and 4 months old) has never had a problem traveling with me for weekend visits to friends & family. We have a nicely-sized travel cage that he's totally comfortable in. However, this weekend was different. I think he was under some stress from being in an...
  10. Your Parrotlet's Health
    Hey everyone, My parrotlet is about 4-5 months old and he recently started his molt. So far it hasn't been too bad, other than him being a little cranky. However, all through today he hasn't been his usual energetic self - he's been really lethargic and just sitting around all puffed up. He has...
