I just gotta share! So, there's been a parrotlet at my local petstore (a small, family-owned shop) that I've adored for a month. However, we haven't had the money to consider adding another parrotlet to our family ($200). Well, yesterday my husband surprised me by saying we could afford it! So, we went there to meet/interact with/ask about her. She's 14 weeks, likes scritches, and is just as sassy as everyone keeps telling me parrotlets are! On the other hand, Pascal (my first parrotlet) is skittish and shy. I have named her Bluebell. We brought her home, set her up in a temporary cage, and then I let Pascal out for his free-flight time. I went to get vegetables for the birds, and when I came back, he was sitting atop her cage, chatting with her. Then, he started feeding her. I assumed this was a good sign?! So, I let her come out to meet him, and she started to preen him. I'm not YET letting them share his giant cage, but I think they will be good friends. BUT I have a concern. She's making little cough/sneeze sounds/clicking (I have no idea if that's what they are) that she wasn't making in the store. She's not otherwise acting sick. She's eating/playing/yelling with Pascal. Should I keep an eye on it or freak out? Cuz I'm sorta prone to freaking out. Q: Should I call the store when they open to ask about it? Q2: The store just treated for bird mites. Could this be the issue? I'll upload photos in a moment. Gotta get 'em off phone.
