Please carefully read through the information provided on my website before deciding whether or not to make a Parrotlet part of your family.
Check under the "Bringing Your Baby Home" tab for lots of helpful info on diet, household hazards, behaviors, etc.
Before deciding to add a Parrotlet to your family, be sure to ask your parents, spouse, roommate, landlord, etc. Remember, deposits and any additional money paid towards a bird is non-refundable, unless it's due to a problem on our end.
And, be sure to check your distance from me. We are 20 minutes east of Atlanta. I can meet you within a reasonable distance. Or I can ship your bird via Delta Airlines. Check the purchasing/shipping page for additional fees and information.
A Parrotlet is not a good choice as a pet for a child. Parrotlets can be territorial and aggressive. And because of their small size, they can be easily injured. If you have children in your household, you might want to give careful consideration before choosing a Parrotlet as a new family member.
If you have a cat or a hyper, playful and/or prey-driven dog, a Parrotlet is NOT a good choice for your family. Remember, Parrotlets are small and can be easily injured or even killed.
Parrotlets can live over 20 years. Please carefully consider this when deciding whether or not to add a Parrotlet to your family.
Parrotlets require sprouted grains, legumes and seeds daily, as well as fresh veggies and fruits. If you cannot provide these foods daily, a Parrotlet may not be a good choice.
Parrotlets need a cage at least 18" wide X 18" deep X 24 " tall. If you can't provide a cage at least this big, a Parrotlet might not be the right bird for your situation. Amazon.com has some great cages at reasonable prices. Bar spacing should be no wider than 4/8", any wider and your bird can slip through the bars. Check the Cage Recommendations page for some ideas.
