    I was playing with Jade, my parrotlet, and then she went under the washing machine in my kitchen.

I cant even see her anymore even with...

  4. Your Parrotlet's Health
    I have had my p'let (Belle) for about 5 weeks now and she still isn't curious. She doesn't play with her toys (except for the mock-preening ones every once in a long while), she only interacts with me for the millet it earns her (clicker training), she doesn't bathe, she only 'talks' a few times...

    Hi I am the proud owner of a ~1 1/2 year old female blue mutation pacific parrotlet. I love her to death, however I'm having more and more issues with her behaviour lately. She's been a shy bird since I got her, and was quite nippy. However now everything seems to scare her when she's out of...

    Hey everyone, So Moses has been home for about three and a half days now. He's a little nippy when I hold him, which I think is normal since he doesn't know me too well yet. It freaks me out a bit cause I'm worried he won't ever bond with me! I normally wake up in the morning and literally...

    Hi all! I got my new girl yesterday. I have alot of questions, and alot of concerns, as any new owner would. Most of all, though, it's about training her for 'step up' and how to get her to where she's no longer afraid of hands. I'm not sure if the woman I bought her from bought her hand-fed...
