    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...

    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?

    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 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, 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...
