So recently, aka yesterday, I decided to go and get some sort of pet, due to my depression as well as loneliness at times. I decided to get a bird. When I went to the pet shop which specializes in birds, I was just looking, seeing what there was. The employee showed me birds that I could possibly get, after explaining my situation, and as much as the birds were beautiful, they were really anything which I was looking for, with most being a bit too expensive and another one a bit too wild. I was about ready to go when I looked on the bird, seeing a bird called a Parrotlet for $350. Not knowing what it was, I asked the employee who led me over towards this little lime green colored male, who was as silent as could be. Well, I fell in love with it however, I went home without it, talked to my parents about it and researched him a bit before I went back with my dad and picked him up. At the store, I bought a large used cage for $70, which I cleaned up with some water with a small amount of vinegar (the cage is larger than my 36 gal fish tank). As for food, i bought him the regular blend as well as a special blend with what looks like pumpkin seeds and dried fruits. As for toys, I spend $80 on them, including buying a birdie playground for him to play with. When I brought him at home and placed him in his cage, he was shy, not wanting to be near me at all. Of course, that is normally so I just sat by the cage without looking at him and worked on the computer, so he would get used to his surroundings.
Today, I decided to do some more shopping for him (I spoil my pets more than what you would believe). I bought him some treats as well as a carrier so that I could bring him to the vet and other places. I then cleaned the carrier, and put in a cup of water for him before taking him for a ride to the local PetSmart, which I bought more toys for him. He seemed to have enjoyed it, because for the first time I had him, he was chirping. When PetSmart trip was done, I brought him home and allowed him to go into his cage, where he continued to chirp, bobbing his head up and down. It was then in which he flew (his wings are clipped) and landed on the floor. I was worried so when I bent down to pick him up, I was surprised when he hopped on my finger (this is the bird he refused to look at me twenty-four hours before). Curious, I decided to leave him be, on my hand and see what he would to. He allowed me to feed him millet before deciding that the spot wasn't comfortable for him. He crawled up my arm and onto my shoulders, where he buried himself into my hair. After an hour of sitting on my shoulder, he crawled on top of my head before sitting there. This is, as I said, the second day. He allowed me to put him back into his cage when I wanted him too and when I tested him by putting my hand on the perch that he was on, he stayed completely still. Not to mention, he rests on the perch that is closest to my bed.
So long story short, I have been curious as to what type of Parrotlet he is. Loki, who is a little over two months, I am guessing is some type of Pacific and after talking to someone else who is a Parrotlet owner, she believes he is an Yellow. She owns a Green Pacific and told me how he seemed awfully pale for one, especially with him being a male. Below is his picture and sorry if it is blurry. It was on the first day. Also, thank you to all who help me out. I appreciate it.
