I have another question. I will be bringing home my parrotlet home tomorrow. I have gotten mixed information reguarding when to start taking him out of his cage. I've heard to leave him alone for the first few days, only approaching his cage and talking to him once in a while. Another site said I can start taking him out right away but only for 15 minutes at a time. I would like to start handeling him as soon as possible. He is 11 weeks old now and from what I've read the best time to bond with a parrotlet is between 8 and 12 weeks. He is almost 12 weeks now so I don't want to wait too long. What has been your experience? I want him to get used to me and being handled but I also want him to get acclimated to his new home and not to cause any undue stress. If anyone has any suggestions please let me know. Thanks.
