  2. Your Parrotlet's Health
    My parrotlet is a male, 9 years old. He was pretty healthy with no issues for 9 years. However, started from last Monday, he had wing twitching, feet-tapping, and heavy breath after fly. Heavy breath will gone in 30 seconds. He was unable to sleep well at night due to wing twitching and...

    Hi there, my name is Tess and I’m new to the group. I am wondering if you could help me. I have had Aloe for 2 years now, with the breeder having told me she is a female. I have always suspected she is a male but due to her mostly blue colour I have found it hard to figure that out myself...

    Hey guys! I'm a first time parrotlet mom (but I've had other birds), and I want to make sure I'm doing everything I can for my little Scuttle-butt! His hatch-day is 7/14/21, so that would make him roughly 3 months old. From what I've read, they shouldn't molt until a year right? He's got pins on...

    Just received this adorable little baby. Third day here and first day in the cage. I’m worried that he’s got so puffy. I know that sometimes means birds are sick or they’re cold. I just can’t tell and I’m so worried!

    Hey everyone! :) So my baby p’lett Billie is about 9-10 weeks old (not hand-raised) and I’ve had her for a month now. Whenever she’s training and millet is involved she’s perfectly happy and responsive and she loves head scratches so I feel our bond is already quite strong. However, when she...

    Hey everyone, does everyone like my new T-shirt? I love it!!! But this thread isn't about that... Your advice worked and Dodi will step up on my finger willingly, but will jump off or fly off of it. Is there a way to keep them on? Or is it just time and him feeling comfortable with my...

    Hello! my baby girl Billie is around 6-7 weeks old and learning to fly. I usually leave her cage door open after her breakfast to give her the option of exploring my room (while supervised of course) Tonight I had some troubles trying to get her back in her cage when I had to go to work. All...

    Hello everyone!! Newcomer here, I’ve been reading forums for awhile now so thought I’d finally make an account as I may be finally getting a parrotlet soon! I’m a 21 year old living in South Australia for context. So, I have a question. Tomorrow I’ll finally be meeting a few baby pacific...

    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...

    Hello! Baby Tofu is doing fantastic- her clipped feathers are regrowing and shes beginning to fly around more still not much of a toy gal but the sea grass matt has done wonders she also has found a love of oat spray and will now spend hours on her mat swing foraging and playing with the oat...

    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...
