Can any of you parrotlet owners tell me more about parrotlets. Cannary is getting one, so I should know more soon. I would like to know if there are any particular things we should be aware of. For example, lineolated parakeets have a huge tendancy to be fearful of hands and fingers. It seems to be almost hard-wired into them as a species in a way that is more noticable than in most other species. Bourkes don't climb cage bars or anything vertically the way most species do, so you have to set up their cages with layers of perches. If you do that, they will be very playful. Do parrotlets as a species have any behaviors or fears we should know about?
