    Can a non-hand fed parrotlet be tamed?

    Hello everyone, I want to buy a parrotlet. I tried searching for hand fed ones but unfortunately this period they only have parrot fed ones.

    Parrotlet overplucking

    Hello, I have an 11 year old Parrotlet who began overplucking her feathers around November of 2023, and its only gotten worse since. The top reasons we saw when we looked it up were stress or malnutrition, so we put her mainly on pellets and only gave her seed every two days or so. She lived...

    Wild Parrotlet

    Hello everyone! My history: 4 years at a pet store taming birds. I use to work with the “difficult” / abused birds to help them get re adjusted and to trust people again. I use to bring home some birds to work with them after years of abuse to get them to the point of trusting people again...

    A way to tone down aggression in a parrotlet

    I have one two year old pacific parrotlet. She is the only pet I have and I live alone with her, though I often have visitors. Most of the times, she is quite docile, though she is a bit destructive with household objects, when left to her own devices, but I think this is expected of any parrot...

    Playing with Lily

    It’s been a really long time since I’ve added any updates on Lily. Last one I had was when all her feathers grew back...but then she plucked them back out. She still plucks any time new feathers come back, but I must say, she doesn’t pluck nearly as much as she did. When I first got her, she was...
