Hello to all. I have just purchased an adorable blue male parrotlet and am just waiting for him to be weaned enough to come home. I have several pets, but no birds. In fact, I have always been wary around birds, until I saw a blue parrotlet that belonged to the pet shop owner. He had such a huge personality and the fact that they talk, but not extremely loud and obnoxiously was a big plus too. In talking to her, she mentioned she had a new clutch with one blue male if I was interested. I then proceeded to do a bunch of research (this forum has been a huge help) before agreeing to purchase this bird. Seeing as they have such long life spans, I didn't want to make a decision in haste. I visit him at the pet shop several times a week to bond and get to know him. There is still so much I have to learn. I am hoping y'all will be there to answer the stupid questions I am sure to ask once I get him home. Thank you in advance.
