    October is my birthday month! A dear friend researched parolet birds and sent me local breeder info and $$$. As fellow collectors of birds know, there's a short window to find a hand-fed (tame babyish) bird. This darling guy looked like an impressionist painting, but Monet wasn't right. Anyway, welcome Louie CT! He's 9 weeks old and it was his first time outside so pooped right away on the gorgeous Tiffany Spider Web table lamp 1900 picture from "The Art of Louis Comfort Tiffany" catalog 1981 mh deYoung Memorial Museum.

    Louie CT also wears a dashing silver anklet VVT ca 305

      Parrotlets are fun little guys to have as pets. Not known for being great talkers but certainly will bond with you and make a fun and loving pet. They can also be trained to do their potty in certain places only. They are a somewhat miniature version of a Quaker parrot. The wife and I raised Quakers for years and I still have three. All of them can be habit forming and make you love them. Your baby is well feathered and certainly looks healthy.

      Thanks friends for your loves and comments:

      flrjr2 - it's okay if Louie CT never talks, his voice is not as loud as my parakeets. I had to wear headphones sometimes with them. Yes, I am looking into potty training. Would love to see your Quaker parrots. Thx :-)

      Fort - yes, he is a fine little guy, thanks :-)

      BB2 - agree, poop is not needed in this post, was annoying because it's a nice book but oh well, my fault :-)

      Kyra - I've been without a bird friend for a year and I was putting it off because of traveling. I have 2 sweet finches, but I wanted a tame friend again. :-)

      Jenni - yes, he's gorgeous. He is small as a lovebird -but more like a parrot than love bird. He's very curious, playful, likes humans.

      Keramikos - thank you for your comment!!

      Scott - I could retire if I had that Louie CT spider web lamp!! It is so gorgeous. Sadly, just the museum catalog. Thanks!

      I had a Jamaican parrot once to commit parrotcide. In that parrots case, it was more like pesticide. They chew all the insulation off of wires & create fire hazards. Feed them a pepper, and they won't shut-up ! Like them better in the wild. LOL
    10. valentino97 valentino97, 10 months ago
      BB2 - that's funny - I can believe the pesty parrots chewing wires! My little guy is not tame enough to let out around the apt. He's in the cage for a month or so. I take him out but he isn't really allowed to wander around much yet. Outside we have beautiful (loud, wild) yellow and green parrots that live in the palm trees. They're a lot bigger than my Louie. LOL

      I forgot my own post rule: Louie is 4"x2".

      Hmmm...don't think I've ever heard of a parrotlet? Is it a small version of a parrot, or a baby parrot? He's very sweet though!

      The Canary Islands have on canaries and the Virgin Islands, ---well, have no canaries either.
    16. Mrstyndall Mrstyndall, 10 months ago
      Beautiful birdie and Happy Birthday!
    17. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 10 months ago
      That should have been, "the Canary Islands have NO canaries". Oops !
    18. valentino97 valentino97, 10 months ago
      Lauren - he's the smallest parrot, bigger than a finch about the size of a parrakeet, but much sweeter tweet.

      Eileen - thanks for the birthday greetings! I am also happy that he's somewhat tame, something I haven't had with a bird friend for the past 5 years.

      BB2 - maybe they used to? LOL

      MrsT - thank you for the birthday greetings :-)

      Thanks friends for your loves - watchsearcher, bobby725, ho2cultcha, Kyra, Ivonne, Kevin, Peggy, kermikos, AdeleC, Ken, Scott, kwqd, Ted :-)

      Hi Mary! I saw on Bill's kitten post Louie is eating from your plate after asking permission :-D
      How lovely!
      Please... PICS!
    22. valentino97 valentino97, 3 months ago
      kyra - Louie has enjoyed our isolation time together since 3/13 and is very tame. I'll share some pix with my next post. Thank you for asking! He's so much fun.

      Thanks friends for your loves!
