    Hello! I go by Sammy, and I have a new Parrotlet named Cotton. He has been with us for two-three weeks. I do not know how to train him to be on your hand, or not bite when you pick him up.

    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.
