I am pretty new to Parrotlets. I got my first in May and my second in August. My older Parrotlet just started making this funny move kind of a neck wiggle. Does anyone know what this move means?

Welcome to the forum! It is a normal gesture for a parrotlet. A lot of times they wriggle their necks and pretend to feed an object, just like when the mother hen fed them. It is just a form of posturing. Every p'lett I had did this for most of their lives.

The wiggle neck, sometimes followed by regurgitation. It is part of the mating ritual. Also part of the weaning / feeding process. Means they really likes you. Also that they are very comfortable with you. Because it is part of the mating and the regurgitation aspect common advise is to discourage by distracting and ignoring. Which is difficult because it is cute as heck.
