I have another little baby girl I am handfeeding. She is blue split to yellow. She comes from Turquoise and Dilute Blue parents. She is so darn sweet. I think these last 2 girls have been especially friendly because they have each been raised alone. She waits on the bars of the cage, chirping when she sees me or hears me hoping I will let her out. She is not afraid of anything, but when something does startle her, she runs to me. So cute. She also likes to climb in my shirt and cuddle and preen herself.
This little handfed baby Dilute Blue Parrotlet girl has been such a joy to raise. She is by far the friendliest bird I have ever handfed. A bird like this only comes around once in a rare time. You can see by the photos how alert and curious she is about everything. She loves being out and ruling her world. She looks the camera right in the eye! She will be on her way to a very lucky new family in Denver, Colorado tomorrow! I will miss her so much, I don’t want to think about it, but I know she will get all the attention she deserves!
Head on over to my “Available” page to see what new parrotlets I have for sale.
Misty’s little girl is now about 4 1/2 weeks old. She is the cutest and sweetest baby I have ever raised. I think it has a lot to do with her being raised a lone. The baby loves me and will cry for me until I go and get her. She is so trusting and will let me do anything to her. Her favorite place is still at the front of my shirt, snuggling against my chest and chirping and singing, and playing with my necklace. What a doll.
This little girl is just so cute! She spends the day hanging out in my shirt. She sits in a warm sock and pops out when she wants attention, or she thinks it’s time to eat. Whoever ends up with this little doll is going to love her!
Awww. Misty’s chick has turned out to be a little snow princess. She is the most adorable little Dilute Blue (American White) parrotlet. She is of the normal variety. Her sister from the last clutch was a normal dilute blue as well but she was of the Lucida subspecies so her sister looks a lot like a male but is in fact a Dilute Blue Lucida.
This little princess is already spoiled and very inquisitive. She spends her days hanging out in the front of my shirt (a nice warm spot for her). She is very white with just the palest blue wash over her wings. I am sure as her pins open she will have this wash on other areas as well. Her flight feathers are bright white.
She is a good eater and chirps periodically. She lets me scritch her little neck and is very curious about everything around her.
My Dilute Blue (Amercian White) Lucida Turquoise female parrotlet Misty has a new baby chick. She is such a proud mommy. She had 4 eggs, but only 3 were fertile and she kept getting off of her eggs. Amazingly, she managed to hatch this 1 cute chick. Can you see the fuzzy little pink baby? She is a good mommy to the little chick.
People always wonder if their pets will stay tame if they breed. Misty certainly has. She loves my attention (one of the reasons she keeps getting off of her eggs). ”
As you can see, she loves when I scratch her neck. She just melts. So sweet.
Remember those little pink rubber eraser babies from about 6 weeks ago? Well look at those beauties now.
They grew up to be 1 marbled blue pied male, 1 exquisite turquoise, marbled, pied female, 1 turquoise male & 1 turquoise female. All of the babies look to be of the Lucida subspecies so their coloring is incredibly vibrant.
I haven’t really seen pieds like this before, but they have a scalloped, edged marking on the wings and a marbled coloring on their chests.
This is a female. She was baby #4 of the clutch, and the youngest. She is a gorgeous rainbow of colors. I just love her. I am calling her a Turquoise Marbled, Lucida Pied.
Here is another look at this remarkable little female baby parrotlet. The camera really cannot capture the soft pallete of colors on her chest. There is pale yellow and pale minty green and pale blue mixed in with a lot of white.
This little baby female parrotlet also has tiny white feathers above each eye which gives her the look of eyebrows. She is very shy.
You 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.
So cute! 5 baby parrotlet chicks have hatched. #5 hatched today! So sweet. They will turn out to be a variety of colors including turquoise, turquoise pied, blue & blue pied.
