    Anyone else out there have a parrotlett? I have a 2 year old maniac named Picasso (DS named the bird before we found out she was a girl! [​IMG]

    We were hoping she would talk, but she never has. She does however let us know that dawn is breaking (who needs a rooster!) and when she wants more treats.

    My mother has one. She doesn't talk either. Though she did lay an egg once.

    I have two budgies named Sunshine and Zoey.

    I have a budgie, but a parrotlet I WANT! I've done a lot of reading up on them and I know that they can be little piss ants, but in spite of that, I WANT!!!

    There was a lady that came to our office once with one that rode on her shoulder. She'd get in and out of her car and do her shopping or whatever she needed to do and that bird was always with her. I've been in love ever since and should I ever lose my Joey bird (hopefully not cause I loves him too much) a parrotlet will be what I get.

    I had a parrotlet name Nathan. He was a doll. He died during Texasdus... when we were stuck on the road for 48 hours escaping Hurricane Rita. He was a great bird though. I have been wanting to get another one.

    sorry to hear about poor Nathan. I hope that you find another one that is just as sweet.

    Okay, here's a picture of Picasso. She never stays still, so it's out of focus a little. Squint and the picture looks better [​IMG]

    I've got cockatiels and a Senegal parrot, but I thought only the boys talked. Your bird is beautiful; I've always wanted one of those.
