  1. Your Parrotlet's Health
    Hi, I have a male parrotlet who is approximately one -year-old, he’s healthy was seeds, pellets and lots of veggies. Talks, tweets, flys perfectly healthy.. I think I just noticed on the corners of his beak it looks a little irritated or red/ pinkish not the normal color it doesn’t seem to be...

    I don't have a parrotlet yet (although I'd like to get it in a year or two), but the thought of babies and parrotlets crossed my mind. While I'm a good ways from worrying about that, their hopeful lifespan is 15-20 years which means I could potentially (hopefully) be in my late 30's/40's when it...

    I saw some videos of parrots bobbing to music and wondered if anyone's parrotlets have done the same. I don't have one yet, so I can't test it out. :o

    Unknown death Please help answer questions Hi everyone, I am beyond heartbroken and feel so much regret and guilt that a young, green parrotlet I had adopted has passed away 2 days ago. I regret not bringing her home from the hospital and now feel the hospital was the wrong place. Especially...

    Ideally I would like to adopt rather than buy a parrotlet but I would really love a blue one :p Anyone has any ideas where I could get a hand raised one so it will be somewhat used to humans? (It would be better to have parrotlets sellers in Florida. Live on an island where they don't have to...

    Marvel and Loki seem to have (had) lice damaging their feathers. Most of the damage is on their tails and back, possibly on their flightfeathers, though it is hard to check since they won't let me handle them much yet. It looks like this, *click* (not my picture) though the shaft doesn't seem to...

    I drove to meet the breeder I was thinking about getting my future fid from today and there is no might anymore, only HECK YEAH. I could not have hoped for a more awesome setup for p'let raising. She had eight baby p'lets, pulled for hand feeding about two weeks ago, and every one was super...
  9. Bonding and Training
    I have a blue male and was thinking about getting a white female but was wondering if it was a good idea to house them in the same cage? Will it affect the bond between me and the birds and will they revert to acting wild. I will definitely take them out one at a time to do one on one bonding...

    Hello everyone, last week 2 of my 3 parrotlets died in a tragic accident. My roommate and I have been crying uncontrollably. We loved them so much, our hearts are broken and we are just lost without them and so is our little Bjork. Her personality has made a 180º change. She's so quiet; she...
  11. Parrotlet Pictures
    Here are pictures of the silly birdies ignoring the elevator/millet dispenser as it takes pictures of them. xD Got Cyrul to sit on my hand today..! But it cost a sprig of millet. He bit really hard on my finger for some reason.. :S He's very weird with step-ups; he gently got on when it was my...

    We are facing foreclosure and looking to rehome our two birds. One is a male pearl pied cockatiel. The other is a male pacific parrotlet. They both had same-species cagemates who have died within the past year. They now live together but aren't bonded to each other yet. Willing to adopt...

  14. Introductions
    Hello! I'm new to the parrotlet world! A few months ago, I lost my precious baby Apollo, a parakeet, which had me sobbing for weeks on end. And then, I discovered the magical world of parrotlets through a friend. I immediately fell in love. Now, I feel like a pregnant woman (as all my birds are...

    Well now that some of you were very kind in helping me determine the gender of my Parrotlets, and answering all my questions.. I was wondering if you all would like to help me name them! These new additions can't go without names now that they are snuggling in as part of the family, and I'm not...

    As most everyone knows, p'lets have BIG personalities. Unfortunately, mine seem to believe that they can take on my African Greys. As a result, their lives are in danger every time they are out of their cages. They invariably end up landing on the big birds' cages, and I'm always worried that...
