Today I have been told by several people INCLUDING a pet store worker that parrotlets are very nippy. Now I have already read this before deciding to aquire one, and I just basically reasoned with myself that most parrots go through a bitey stage, its just part of being a bird owner. So today I was in the store buying perches and food and things for my Cupcake (she comes home TOMORROW!!!!! ) and the girl working there was like: "I hate parrotlets. They all bite and they go right for the spot right here" She was pointing to the cuticle of her thumb. I have seen nothing but good videos on YouTube, and all the folks on this forum adore their birds! This girl is probably the most negative person I have come across. So, my question stands: How bitey can I expect cupcake to be, and do her hormones have something to do with it?
