Parrotlets

The Parrotlet is known as a perfect pocket pet. More about Parrotlets »

Although it is the smallest true parrot, this little dynamo cannot scream. The loudest chatter compares to an angry sparrow. P’lets are from the Amazon family, and definitely look like their big relatives. We raise, including normal greens, blues, dilutes (a softer light blue), pastel (yellow), and some pieds. They have the same beak, the same rounded tail, and the same clownish personalities. Parrotlets can learn to talk, and because they are such a tiny bird, they will speak in a teeny, tiny voice. They can be quite the little clowns both in and out of their cages. They do have the attitude of a full-sized parrot – if a pet feels neglected, it may scold its owner, or be nippy for a short while to teach them a lesson.

If handled daily from a young age, the Parrotlet can be a wonderful pet for a child, a novice bird owner, or anyone who is intimidated by the bigger birds. They do need to be handled daily to keep them sweet and friendly. Otherwise, you may have a very nippy, self-proclaimed despot on your hands! These little birds have a very short weaning time, only 6 to 8 weeks, depending upon each baby’s individual time-clock.

Parrotlets need to be on a seed diet. These are the only parrots we raise that do not eat pellets. As the Parrotlet matures, it has a very hard time digesting everything in the extruded pellets. They end up with stoppages and die. The youngest that has been necropsied with this ailment was only 6 months old. As a Parrotlet can live to be 15 years or older, we would like you to have your avian companion for as long as possible!

We have found that a cockatiel mix with very few sunflower seeds works very well. Some companies do make a Parrotlet mix, but I have not found it to be all that different to the readily available cockatiel mixes.

As with all birds, try to find a cage that will still give the bird room to flap in all directions, even after several perches and toys are added. Bar spacing should be no more than 3/8 apart. 16″ by 16″ is probably the smallest suzed cage I’d put a pet Parrotlet.

At Birdie Brains Aviary, we raise Pacific Parrotlets. I used to raise the Spectacled parrotlet also, but just recently sold my last pair to an avid Spec lover. She has gathered several un-related pair and will be working on populating the species here in the US

Pacific Parrotlets »

The Pacific Parrotlet is outgoing, and can be quite fearless in its own environment. When they are hand raised, they are sweet, wonderful pets. They love to hang out with their owner as much as possible, and as most parrots, they do need attention daily. When this is done, the bird forgets it is a bird and becomes part of your ‘people flock’, so he believes that he is one of your family just as everyone else! There are many variations of the Pacific P’let.
