Hi! I'm very happy to have found this group. I got a baby parrotlet about 1.5 months ago from a breeder. At first she was very scared and biting me hard but has made a great deal of progress. The breeder told me to handle her as much as possible, which is what I have been doing. At first she did not want to come out of the cage at all but has become more willing. However, I still have to pick her up and bring her out. Once she is out she is happy and loves me scratching her neck. After reading more about it I saw that most people go very slow and never "force" their parrotlet to come out of the cage. Should I stop picking her up and bringing her out? Should I just wait until she climbs onto my hand on her own and then bring her out? Like I said, she is happy with me when she is out and she is very friendly with me coming to the front of the cage when I talk to her. She definitely doesn't seem scared, but I want to make sure I'm handling her the right way. Also, she appears to be going through her first molt....is it normal to for her to be a little extra grumpy? She seems itchy and loves when I scratch around her neck gently. Thanks so much!
