  1. Parrotlet Diet
    Looking through old posts I see that many people are OK with the fact that their p'let does not eat pellets. Mine used to eat Tropican. Maybe becuase I gave him so many other foods, he stopped eating them altogether. But I was concerned that he was taking only to the less healthy foods. I...
  2. Parrotlet Talk
    Hi all! Just wanted to share how I managed to transition Monty off seeds to pellets recently in case anyone was feeling stuck (like I was!). I was trying to do the ratio thing (lessen the seeds, increase pellets gradually), but it just wasn't working (he'd just pick the seeds and then rummage...
  3. Parrotlet Diet
    Hi everyone! I will bringing home my first parrotlet in mid-May and have been doing quite a bit of reading about pellet and seed brands. I've seen a lot of conflicting information. My breeder feeds her birds a mixture of seed and pellet so I was going to do the same to avoid stressing the bird...

    NOW SOLVED: He's a happy healthy pellet eater, now eating plenty of veg too and a decent weight, thanks everyone :) X It's Hiro again! Hi guys, So a question for you all. I've had Hiro a couple of months now since rehoming him. We have no idea how old he is (we think maybe a year but it's a...
  5. Parrotlet Diet
    The title pretty much says it all, I am in total shock! :eek: I got my ordered Nutribird pellets today, and although I usually feed Marvel and Loki in the morning, I decided to give them some pellets in a separate bowl. They tried some almost immediately! :D I hope this means they will soon eat...
  6. Parrotlet Diet
    I recently transitioned my parrotlet from cockatiel seed to nutriberries and now to XS Zupreem fruit pellets. The pellets are now what I keep in his cage at all times, supplementing with a fruit/veggie/crushed Zupreem natural pellet mixture and nutriberries. My issue is that I can't really...
  7. Parrotlet Diet
    I just got a baby blue parrotlet about 7 days ago. I have in his cage small hookbill mix but he only eats the smallest seeds and millet. I have put fruits and veggies in his cage everyday since i got him and he won't eat any. Im getting worried...I want him to have a balanced diet. Also would...
  8. Parrotlet Diet
    I have read that a lot of parrot owners don't leave food in the cage at all times, and that they leave some food in the cage and then for meals take them out and feed them fresh foods. So I'm conflicted, on the one hand I want to leave food in at all times since I'm not home most of the time...
  9. Introductions
    Hi all, So, I am here because I was doing the google, trying to see if other parrotlets periodically make the annoyed buzzing sound mine does, and found both the answer (yes) and these forums at the same time. :) I have had my tiny yet very feisty blue parrotlet hen, Maisie, since 10/2/11, so...
  10. Parrotlet Diet
    So recently (approx a week and change) brought home a new parrotlet which happens to be our first one. To tide us over until we could figure out what to actually feed her, we've been using a 'tiel mix which she seems to enjoy for the most part. I've have noticed however that she tends to dig...
  11. Parrotlet Diet
    Hi, I have read the forums and have decided on purchasing Harrison's pellets. I am not quite sure on if I can find/get them or not so I might result to other pet store brands. Any "plan-B" suggestions? Pellets of course...:confused:
