    Molting, or..?

    Can anyone confirm this “just-weaned” Parrotlet is “just molting”, or is her lack of face feathers something more?

    Bird not eating a lot of veggies and fruits

    Hello, My bird is 1-year-old parrotlet and I found that he likes pellets and other dried fruits from the food I buy from the store. When I serve him fresh fruits and other veggies he doesn't even touch them. How can I encourage him to eat it? The only times he actually does when I pretend to...

    Need advice on semi-new bird that is very fearful

    On December 9th my dad bought home a 3 month old parrotlet from a pet store, we named him Rango.

    Advice Needed

    Almost 2 weeks ago I brought home a 4-5 month old male parrotlet. I have experience hand-feeding and raising birds, but this is new territory for me. I know the bonding process will take time, but just when it seemed like he was finally settling in and I was beginning to gain his trust he...

    Pictures Parrotlet nests?

    So my parrotlet is laying eggs The only thing is they didn’t build a nest in the nest box. The eggs are just laying there in the otherwise empty box. Is that a problem? Should I try dropping nesting material in?

    Parrotlet v. Lovebird

    In the near future I intend on getting a parrotlet and/or a peach-faced lovebird. I worked with birds for a living at one time, and I've done extensive research on both pocket parrots, but rather than look at "facts" it would be helpful to get some opinions. This is the information I have...

    Parrotlet occasionally fainting?

    Hey there guys, So I've become aware of my parrotlet (smaller bird in my profile photo) fainting every now and then. This doesn't happen often, maybe once or twice every couple of months.. I think this may be because he holds in his poop as he likes to keep his cage clean, considering as...
