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!
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.
