Parrotlets – Are They The Right Pet For You?

Turquoise and Turquoise Pied ParrotletsYou walk into a pet store and there you see the most adorable, tiny, colorful parrot.  It is so small…you just gotta have it.  And oh, the color!  It is just the most gorgeous splash of vibrant colors you have ever seen packed into such a small parrot.  While you’re at it, you think, hmmm, so tiny I can have 2 or 3 of them.

Parrotlets are indeed one of the smallest parrots on the planet.  They are smart, inquisitive, somewhat quiet compared to their larger counterparts and have some of the most beautiful coloring you will ever see.  Don’t let their tiny size fool you.  They are adorable little clowns but they can sometimes exhibit that “Napoleon” complex you hear so much about in tiny dogs.  They have no idea they are tiny and will often confront birds 100x bigger then themselves, as well as humans.

But come on, who can resist these tiny creatures?  As long as you know what you are getting into then by all means definitely consider bringing one of these beauties into your life.    You can find more information about parrotlets on my blog here Parrotlet Info.
