Smile Hello!

Hi everyone. Newly adopted mom of two male pacific parrotlets. Ive read alot about them and look forward to any tips or advice anyone can give me. They are brothers; a little over a year old. One is a bit more skitish than the other but they seem to be healthy and happy. Looking forward to this new adventure!

Hello Tracey!!


And God said, "...let birds fly above the earth across the expanse of the sky." And God saw that it was good.

Hi Tracey and welcome. I've had one green pacific parrotlet for 8 years so lovable and for me easy to train by being consistent. Jelly Bean learned at an early age not to fly out of the cage like a wild boy till he is invited out on my finger. Recently he surprised me by laying his first egg! But after all this time I find it hard to refer to him as a her. And Jelly as a name still fits LOL!

How funny Gemini1. That would be s surprise to find that "he" was actually a "she". My fiance had a pacific many year ago that would follow him around the house and was quite a chatterer. One of my new ones is getting to be more trustful and doesnt run to the back of the cage like he did. He is much more tolerant now, of one of us coming close to him and he will venture outside of it now. A work in progress for sure but the payoff will be worth it. They are interesting to watch. Keeping our eye out for a female.

Beautiful Plet, Tracey! I had a green pacific plet for nearly 8 years. She was so much fun. I hope you will develop a wonderful relationship with your two boys.
