Hi alicia,

Welcome. Read the threads on this site, they should give you an idea of what parrotlets are like.

Regards,

Hi Alicia, Also I would suggest that you search online for articles about parrotlets. Bitsy is my first parrotlet. He is a sweetie, but I'm finding him to be far more challenging (and far more fun too!) than the budgies I have had in the past. I did lots of reading before getting him -- I would suggest you read everything you can find.

Hey alicia! yes they are holdable. They especially love to sit up on your shoulder, close to your hair. They love to be scratched around their little necks. They are very friendly, but just like with most animals, you have to build a friendship bond with them. They can (and do) bite, but you can teach them not to. -spasticat

I had hand-tamed budgies in the past----I loved them dearly. If I could, I'd definitely get a hand-tamed budgie again. They are the perfect pet.
Ollie can be a challenge, and I have to be careful not to get in his cross-hairs. Early morning & later afternoon he is much more social and agreeable. that's when he is the most fun. I also have an untamed budgie. He is sweet and they are buddies, good company for each other. Best to you.

Welcome to the forum! Any parrot is holdable, so yes to parrotlets. But each bird is an individual and parrotlets are known for their independent attitude, so they love their scritches and pets, but usually on their terms :)
