Is there a way of telling if a Parrotlet is a baby or not? For example, in a Budgie, they have "baby bars" above there cere. Also they get a white ring (iris) around the eye after six months old.

Parrotlet young have very dark eyes. I wish I had a better age guide, but like right now I have two hens that are maybe 2 1/2 months and their eyes are still quite dark. They also "act" young to me..

The five months olds' eyes have changed already, you can clearly see a difference in color b/t the iris and the pupil.

Any older than that would be hard to judge.
