Nick,

I must admit, something doesn't make sense to me. You have one parrotlet as a pet, you have a pair of parrotlets as that you are trying to breed. You've had other parrotlets prior to this. Your mother is a successful parrotlet breeder. You have said you have experience hand feeding parrotlets. You have just purchased a fourth parrotlet that is a 2.5 month old baby yet you are asking for help with basic 'taming'. Can you clarify this for me?

Thanks,

Art S.

Nick, thanks... I would hold her to my chest and talk and sing. Chipper always likes that. Call that holding a name that she can learn.

I keep forgetting to make a little video of my "beaky" and "warm blanket" "scritches" etc... moves. I tell her what I am doing and she learns fast and can expect it. They seem to not want sudden moves.

I would say "Warm Blanket" or whatever you want to call holding her, then hold her. Just a few minutes at a time and tell her how good that was. I have not had two, so one is easy for me.

We shall see how this turns out!
I'm wondering...
Here is my game plan to get her and Oscar become "buddies" and share a cage. let me know what you think about it:
1*For one to two weeks, keep her in a separate room to prevent any possible sickness from spreading to my other birds.
2*Then, put her in a cage next to Oscar's.
3*Let them play daily, and watch closely.--for weeks, to months.
4*When they are accustomed, and play nice, put them together.
5*If there are any major fights, separate them and start back at step 2
6*Small fights will be discouraged, but not grounds for separation.
quarantine is a minimun of 30-45 days!!!
