    Urgent Parrotlet symptoms

    I have a 3 year old parrotlet and yesterday I noticed his poop was a clear liquid. Today I had him out and he pooped again, and it was pure liquid.

    First Vet Visit!

    Today Lawrence went on his first trip to the vet :D He went for a general check-up, look at his feathers, and to get DNA sexed (I've just been assuming he was a boy this whole time lol, can't wait for the results in the next few weeks). I was really nervous about how he'd go, but he did really...
