  1. Your Parrotlet's Health
    I have a 8 month old male parrotlet that started to make a very weird slightly high whimpering sound almost sounds like a puppy. Should I be worried? I never heard him make those noises till I put him near my ear to listen closely to be sure but he also makes these noises when perching and such...

    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...

    Tofu just finished her second round of antibiotics and I can tell she's feeling better because she's so vocal just chattering and calling for mama's attention like crazy! (I'm not complaining). I took all of the advice given and got her a warm mist humidifier- even got the extra filters ahead of...

    I think it's been a while since I've posted an update of Tofu but I just wanted to let you all know this forum is great and I've received so much help! We got Tofu end of October/Beginning of November in 2020 at around five months old. I had talked to the breeder before getting her regularly...

    I live in Greece and my baby girl is 5 years old. I am looking for a quality seed mix and I am having a hard time finding one. I've already ordered the Psittacus maintanance mini formula pellet brand (the only pellet brand here) and plan on converting her if possible but I also want to...

    Hello everyone I'm brand new to parrotlets, we have had our beautiful Tillie for a day and a half. I'd really like to do this right, and the advice on this forum is awesome, thank you. One thing I would like to clarify is when to start handling her- I know this is really important to establish...

    Hi guys. I've been reading up on Parrotlets and I've been interested in getting one. The thing is, I work 40 hours a week and I'm scared that he will still get lonely. So, if I get 1 parrotlet, I might get another so he won't be so lonely. But if I do, will they be able to live in a cage...

    Hi everyone, I'm new around here so I'm sorry if this is in the wrong topic section. I have a little parrotlet, she was born March 21st. I handfed her and everything. She took a little while to develop feathers compared to the other babies but she did... until, her right side of her face didn't...
  12. Parrotlet Diet
    Hi everyone, this may be a silly question but does anyone else have a bird who puts food in there water dish? I’m constantly changing one of my birds water probably about 10-15 times a day!! Every time I do she goes and get seeds, veggies or a few pellets and drops them in there. She’s...

    Hi, I'm new to this forum! About 2 years ago, I purchased a turquoise parrotlet named Bubbles from a breeder who supposedly hand-fed her babies. Unfortunately, I do not believe the babies were hand fed. Regardless, I used clicker training to get Bubbles to eat millet from my hand, and...

    Hi guys! Been meaning to join this site for a while. Basically... I have recently rehomed a parrotlet, who now goes by the name of Hiro, and my poor boy is pretty disabled. I work with birds and he was 'dumped' on us by an animal wholesaler that was supposedly 'deciding to shut down' and...

    I am trying to find links to learn what pairs and genetics are going to produce healthy and unhealthy birds. I also want to know the basics like what colors you can and can't pair. I want to be able to understand the genetics but I can't find any sources that cover all the colors there are, and...

    do they brood as they lay? or do they brood only when they decide the final number of eggs in a clutch?

    I've had a male parrotlet for 9 years now named Kricket and he's always had this issue where he will mutilate his feathers. It's been a source of strife for me but I could never figure out what it was and so I attributed it to frustration and boredom. But it never made much sense because he...

    Just curious how many other parrotlet owners out there have birds that go loco when they hear or see a crinkley bag? My parrotlet, Kricket goes crazy when he hears or sees one and I unknowingly exacerbated the issue at a young age by increasing his exposure to plastic bags tenfold. It's...
