    We decided to get into the Parrotlets because they are a small bird that is talks and don't take up much room. Here are some pics of the ones we have now. My parents have two pairs and I bought me one with my birthday money.

    Dixie is our green pet parrotlet.

    Love the parrotlets, never knew there was such a bird. What would someone expect to pay for a parrotlet?

    OMG SO CUTE!!!! We visited my aunt when I was a kid and she had one named Pookie and I was absolutely obsessed with it. I begged and begged and begged my parents for a bird until they got me an adorable blue parakeet who I of course named Pookie 2 [​IMG]

    Thanks for bringing back fond childhood memories [​IMG]

    Normal green ones here in my area are around 100 handfed with blues going for about 150-200 (at least that is what I paid for ours we had)

    Yes! anywhere from 50 to 300 dollars is what you can expect to pay for a nice morph. We bought our green female for 50-75ish. Ours are flirting so hopefully two of the three pairs are going to lay eggs soon.
