Question Cage for parrotlet

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Bird-Parr...sAAOSwo4pYhakC

I'm hoping to home a green rumped parrotlet in the near future and deciding on a cage has been... overwhelming. I've searched for information and photographs of parrotlet owners setups - this helped. I doubt they will be in there cage much, if I'm honest.
If anyone has any other suggestions for cages, they will be gladly considered.
Thank you!

Re: Cage for parrotlet

Great size for a parrotlet. Just make sure of the bar spacing, parrotlet heads are small , and you do not want a cage where it's head can fit thru the bars and get stuck.

Re: Cage for parrotlet

That one looks good. Bar spacing is 1/2Ē which is perfect. I have this one for Bumble, my Pacific Parrotlet and itís super roomy and she loves it.

Re: Cage for parrotlet

Thank you both! I'm glad to have finally made a decision on what cage to purchase. Today I bought a few items to place in their cage, once it arrives. It has been an exciting weekend. I'd love to know more about Bumble. I've looked through your thread dedicated to her - it is sweet. I'm grateful for everyone sharing their experience/knowledge.

Aww thanks! Her thread is due for an update. And I hope to see pics and stories of your fid(s) when they arrive! Thereís a shortage of talkative parrotlet parronts here

Smile Re: Cage for parrotlet

I've been looking at potential toys/items for future parrotlet and I'm struggling to make a decision on what else to purchase... I'm going to order a cuttle bone although, upon further reading it was advised to scrape a small amount in with their food instead of it being in their cage with them. What is your parrotlets diet? Also, what do you have in Bumble's cage? I plan on giving them plenty of fresh fruit and veg'. I apologise for all the questions

Please donít apologize! I asked so many questions when I was still calling Bumble ďFuture BirdĒ so now Iím happy to give back.

She eats a mix of Harrisonís pellets, Zupreme fruit blend, and Volkmannís Parrotlet mix - about one third of each. Iím going to take her off the Zupreme though-sheís recently decided that tossing all the pellets is more fun than eating. Red ones first. Then I do a chop thatís never quite the same but has cooked: brown rice, quinoa, sweet potato and raw: mixed veggies (I get frozen), lots of peppers of whatever kind, and whatever else sounds good. I freeze it in snack size ziploc bags with a couple of days worth in each. Then daily I add fresh stuff - berries, greens, fruit, veggies. Today itís a fresh basil leaf, a snap pea, and a little chunk of ginger. Thatís new and she isnít totally into it!

In her cage-I work full time so Iím away from her longer than I would like. She has a variety of toys and I try to swap them out. In the interest of saving $$ I recently bought a bunch of parts and plan to start making them myself. Try getting her one of a few different kinds of toys to see what she likes. And if she doesnít like it, put it away to try again later. Same with food.

There are a couple of threads that will be helpful. If I knew how to insert them here I would, but I donít. A mod might come along and help. Meanwhile search CHOP and youíll get tons of ideas for food, and search ďWhat do I Really NeedĒ to find the responses I got to that question. That thread was invaluable to me!

I hope this helps!
