- Our blue parrotlet is Zazu.
Hi there ... I've been reading posts and finally decided to ask some questions myself. We have a new(ish) parrotlet. He's about 6 months old. Hand-fed. Hand-reared. In all aspects he has been raised to be comfortable with people. With that said, he is so antisocial. He doesn't play. He comes out of his cage for treats (sunflower seeds and chia). He has no interest in any one of us. He'll come out of cage to hang out, but he does it independently. He just sits and watches. He has lots of opportunity to play inside his cage. Nothing. He has started tearing at his perches, which is totally fine. We have had a parrotlet in the past and she was so social and friendly. He preens outside of his cage and fluffs up, but he just has no interest in engaging with us at all. Is this a patience issue (with us?). Or is ours broken? LOL. (that's a JOKE). I've attached a picture of Zazu.
