  1. Your Parrotlet's Health
    Hi all It's been a while since I've posted here. Tiki has been doing very well, but there have been fires about an hour away from us and it's very smoky outside.

    I’m getting closer to getting my parrotlet, but before I bring him home, I want to know how to proceed with handling. When he first comes home, should I give him space for the first day? How involved is too involved? Can hands go in the cage within the first 24 hours with a hand-tamed...
