  1. Bonding and Training
    Hi Everyone, I'm about a month into being a bird mum for the first time, and this forum has been AMAZING!!! Any worries I have or any new behaviours or advice, I come straight here and you have not failed me. Little Dodi is settling in well, in fact I wanted to share with you all that today is...
  2. Bonding and Training
    Hi everyone. I'm a new bird mum and when an opportunity rose just under two weeks ago to have our beautiful Dodi I couldn't resist. He's a gorgeous Pacific Parrotlet. I love him so much. He is 6 months old, his previous owner bought him to train him and then sell on but didn't get round to...
  3. Parrotlet Talk
    Hi, I just got my parrotlet Eoghan a week ago from a woman who did not want him anymore because he was too noisy, but I'm not sure if he is actually male. The woman says "he" is male because that's presumably what the breeder she got him from told her. However upon researching more about...
  4. Parrotlet Pictures
    I took some pictures of the nest of pacific parrotlets we're raising in school (I am studying to be a veterinary assistant and we have a lot of animals on school grounds). I shared two of the pictures in my introductionthread, but thought I might share them here as well! Babies and mom...
  5. Parrotlet Housing
    Hey everyone! So, in a few weeks I will be the proud owner of my first male pacific parrotlet babies! (still deciding on one or two, but will stick with two in this thread) Before that, I need to decide on what kind of cage to house them in, so I can get it all ready before they're old enough...

    Hey everyone! I'm Lore, currently 23 years old and living in the Netherlands. I'm a student, studying to be a veterinary assistant, which is very exciting and pretty much a dream come true to me, as I have always loved all animals. It's amazing to learn and work with them, in school, and at...

    I recently adopted a young pair of parrotlets thinking they were male and female pacific parrotlets. But now I suspect that the female is actually the green rumped subspecies. Can a pacific and a green-rumped parrotlet breed? Is it a good idea? Thank you!
  8. Your Parrotlet's Health
    Hello everyone, I'm new here and new too to the world of owning birds. I recently bought a pacific parrotlet (1 week ago) and yesterday evening when I came back from class he was at the bottom of the cage, feathers fluffed and wings dropped. He was obviously ill, he didn't want to eat or drink...
  9. Parrotlet Talk
    Hi guys. It's been a while since I've come here but after my little guy passed away on Saturday me and my family are finding it really hard to deal with the house being so quiet. I know part of this is an impulsive reaction to grief, but we're all wanting another another little Parrotlet like...

    Sorry for another annoying brag, but I can't keep this from the people who have helped me most with Milo! So as I've said in recent posts, he's become a little chatterbox, and even asks for scratches now using words. Well this morning when I was leaving the house I walked past his cage and said...
  11. Parrotlet Talk
    Hi All, I am not writing this post as an experienced owner, because I am far from one. I have only had my parrotlet for a couple of months and he is the first bird I have owned. I thought this might be helpful for those who are browsing this site because they are interested in purchasing a...
