Description

Description

Description: Pet Pied Pacific Parrotlets are varied in their coloring. No two Pied Pacific Parrotlets are alike. Parrotlets are one of the smallest parrot species. Pied Pacific Parrotlet pets have stocky builds and short tails. In the wild, they travel in flocks in sizes of four to over a hundred birds and travel in flocks of five to forty. Pet Pacific Parrotlets form lifelong bonds with their chosen mates. Their natural habitat is arid lowland scrub, semi-open tropical deciduous woodland, gallery forest and secondary growth.

Geography: Mexico and Central and South America

Song / Call: Click to listen to Pacific Parrotlets

Size: 4 - 5.5" (10 - 14 cm) 

Lifespan: 15 to 20 Years

Sexing: Pet Parrotlets are difficult to sex visually and we are unable to guarantee gender. DNA testing is available to ensure desired gender. 

Temperament: The sweet, lovable pet Pacific Parrotlets are playful, energetic and fearless. Pacific Parrotlet pets are highly intelligent, social creatures and can be taught to do tricks and talk. These little birds are delightful companions with big personalities. Pet Parrotlets often become moody and jealous, and can develop hormonal problems during the breeding season, however, with plenty of attention and training, these tendencies can be avoided. Pacific Parrotlet pets love to be petted and scratched and are most happy riding around on a shoulder or in a pocket. Be sure to have plenty of toys for them to swing and hang from - you don't want them to get bored. A parakeet-sized cage may possibly look appropriate for their size, but it is much better to take a step up to a lovebird or cockatiel size cage.

Breeding: A parrotlet's nest is typically lain in any natural or artificial cavity such as holes in trees, on branches, fence posts or telephone poles. Pet Pacific Parrotlets will nest in old mud nests and large stick nests built by other birds. 4 to 6 eggs are laid, sometimes more, with an incubation period of 17 days. 

Diet:  Parakeet Seed,   Australian Goldenfeast, Dried Egg Food, fresh fruits, vegetables, millet spraycuttlefish bone

DNA Testing  Note: If a DNA test is selected by a customer to determine gender of a bird, a charge of $149.00 is charged per test, and the results may take 3-6 plus weeks for results. 

* If there is not a gender option listed for this bird on our website, that particular species is 'monomorphic,' which means we’re unable to determine gender without DNA testing. If no DNA testing is ordered, we are unable to guarantee a preferred gender, but will do our best if you note your preference in the comment section of your order. See our FAQs for more info.

Loving Our Bird

We got our little bird in a little more than 3 weeks. He arrived safe and sound, and the company communicated shipping information and checked in upon its arrival. The only obstacle was communicating with our post office, but our bird arrived safely nonetheless. It has been a few days now and our bird is still a little stressed as he adjusts, but he has not shown signs of any illness. :)
