My Pacific Parrotlets  /   Hand-Fed Babies
My babies are from selective high quality bloodlines. Sometimes the photos below do not really do the birds justice. Every baby is beautiful and has its very own personality. They are used to being around children and small dogs.  Breeding ethics are #1 in my aviary! I recommend keeping all babies in a Birdie Playpen for the first few months. Buying from a responsible breeder can make the difference in a bird that lives 4 years compared to 20. Ask questions and know who you are buying from About  Me  After all you are buying a baby that you expect to have with your family for many years. Don't take short cuts with your selection of bird or breeder.  Contact me with any questions by phone or email
 ~ Thanks, Sean

Hatched On Christmas Day. This little girl is so pretty. She is always watching everything that I do and knows right away when I am mixing up her formula. She is going to be wonderful little bird for someone. Every year around Christmas I keep close watch on all my eggs hoping to have a couple hatch on Christmas day. This year she was the only Christmas baby. Very special little girl.

A unique color in my aviary. She is beautiful! I would describe her color as a lime green with a burst of sunshine.  Her mother is a pretty green and yellow pied and her father is a very beautiful  blue dilute. Because her mother is a pied I believe this little girl would also be classified as a pied - a very light pied - I would love to see photos of this little girl once she goes through her first molt. She is a very sweet little girl and whomever is lucky enough to get this little jewel I ask that you please keep me updated with photos.  Very pretty baby!

A beautiful little boy, The green turquoise is starting to show up on his forehead now. He is very loveable and cant wait for me to get him out of the playpen. Watches my every move. He has a beautiful freckled color pattern that starts on top of his head and goes down each wing. This little boy comes from 4th generation freckled. His mother and father are split to what I call freckled and I was not expecting they would have a clutch of 5 beautiful freckled babies the first go around. He is a very sweet little boy. I was not expecting to have any freckled babies this winter because my breeders are on a 6month break, So these babies were a nice surprise.

I Practice Abundance Weaning 100% of the Time.      top of page Top of page

Ready To Go Dates:
The ready to go dates are not guaranteed for babies under 10 weeks of age. Normally I am very good at guessing when the babies will be ready to go, However, because I do practice the abundance weaning process I am sometimes wrong by a few days up to a week. Each little baby is allowed to eat formula until it no longer wants it. This is the most responsible way of handfeeding the babies.

Definition of Abundance Weaning: The phrase "abundance weaning" describes the way that most reputable bird breeders wean the baby birds that they hand feed. In abundance weaning, the breeders continue to give the chicks handfeedings while offering them solid foods to try, such as millet and softened pellets. The birds are allowed to stay on handfeedings until they themselves decide that they are ready to eat solid foods and drink water on their own. Most breeders agree that abundance weaning techniques lead to birds with more stable physical and psychological health. Because of this some babies actually end up taking formula up to 8 or maybe even 9 weeks old. However most babies wean around 7 weeks of age.  Abundance Weaning is the most healthy way to wean your baby bird.  top of page Top of page

Winter Months: I have not had any issues with shipping in the winter. The airlines keep the babies in climate controlled areas at all times and the cargo office is heated. Also I include a small disposable heater in the shipping playpen when needed with each baby to keep it nice and warm for the short trip. I have been shipping for several years now in the winter and the summer months & could not be happier with the Pet Safe shipping program. top of page Top of page

Albino Parrotlet   top of page Top of page
A white Parrotlet with red eyes. We call them Albino. However they are actually white lutinos. A true Albino parrotlet would be extremely rare. White lutino males are visually indistinguishable from white lutino females unless held under a blacklight, blue becomes lightly evident (false albino) In a true albino you would see no other colors or hue. DNA sexing can also be used to tell male from female in white lutinos.
top of page Top of page
Blacklight Testing:   top of page Top of page

Albinos can be held under a blacklight in a dark room in order to tell male from female. Under the blacklight a male will have a soft blue cast of color down the wings and on the lower rump area of his back in between his wings. A female will show no cast or shades of blue in these areas. The only way to be 100% sure is to send a few of the feathers off to the lab to have them DNA tested. I do offer this service if requested.

 top of page Top of page

Split:    top of page Top of page
Split is just "bird talk" for heterozygous.
Layman breeder talk - Split in most cases is a quick way of saying what color one of the babies parents were.
Example Blue split to pastel - might mean that the birds father or mother was pastel or carried the pastel gene.

Split means that the bird carries the gene for a recessive color mutation that is not displayed in the actual color of the bird because they only have one copy of the gene. For example if you wanted to produce yellow babies, you would want to pair up two birds that are both split to yellow. The split color is actually the hidden color that is not visible on the bird. A blue bird that is split to yellow simply means that the bird is blue but it carries the yellow mutation gene in its bloodline. If you have a blue bird that came from a yellow father and the mother was blue - the breeder would most likely list this blue bird as (Blue split to yellow) The split color of a bird is generally important to the breeder, However for the pet owner that is not going to breed the bird the split is not important. Also it is important to note that just because one of the parents was yellow, blue or any color other than the normal color, it does not mean or guarantee that all of the babies born (hatched) from those parents will be split. In most cases the split color can not be guaranteed and simply (only) means that one of the parents or grandparents was the split color.

Essential Green   top of page Top of page
Also called by some breeders: Clean Green, Complete Green, True Green, Natural Green, Aviary Green and a few other terms.

Also called clean green by some breeders, However since most breeders can not guarantee the pureness of the green DNA back more than a few generations of natural green to green only breeding, I have chosen to call my purest green line of parrotlets Essential Green. I currently have bred 6 generations of natural green pacific babies. By my personal standards a bird will be called Essential Green after 3 generations of green breeding. Meaning the 4th generation of babies will be called Essential Green.  It would be acceptable to call a bird clean green only after 8 generations of natural green breeding by my personal standards, However even after 8 generations of natural green breeding there is no way of knowing if a color mutation was present for example 10 or even 14 generations in the past. Different breeders will call their green line something else, for example some breeders are using Clean Green, True Green, Natural Green and a few other names. My advise when looking for a pure line of green is to ask the breeder how many generations of green is accounted for. In my belief to be somewhat safe I would suggest at least 3 generations of green breeding in order to be classified as Essential Green.

Definition of Essential: 
Being such by its very nature or in the highest sense known ; natural

Definition of Clean: 
Free From, Uncontaminated or pure

LuckyFeathers Green Breeding Standards:
3 generations or less of natural green breeding - Green Parrotlet
3 to 8 generations of natural green breeding - Essential Green
8 generations or more of natural breeding - Clean Green /
and possibly still classified as Essential Green
Wild Caught Green Bird Breeding - True Clean Green

*Note - Different breeders will use different terms for their green line of parrotlets. The above standards and the term Essential Green is only my personal aviary standard and not recognized by an official bird club that I am aware of and I am not even sure if anyone else is using this term. However anyone is welcome to use it as far as I am concerned. However I ask that you please not classify a green parrotlet as an Essential Green unless it was produced from parents with 3 or more generations of natural green to green breeding.
 

True Clean Greens are now rare and are very hard to find and some breeders say they are not available at all in the USA.  Just because a parrotlet is green does not mean that it is a true clean green or does not carry any of the color mutations in its DNA. Breeding two green parrotlets together may produce green babies and in fact some of those babies may very well be true clean greens, However the only way to know for 100% sure is to have DNA testing done. I am not sure what that would cost but assume it would be very expensive.

Price:   top of page Top of page

These prices reflect the hard work and proper nutrition my birds have received, My prices are also based on the quality of the bloodline I have developed over many years of breeding only strong healthy hand selected breeder birds. I have also included an unheard of 3 year guarantee for each baby sold. I have researched prices across the internet and believe that I offer a very honest price for the quality of bird you will receive. My prices are in the middle of what most national breeders are charging. For example if the high price going rate is around 300.00 and the low price going rate is around 200.00 I price my birds someplace in the middle of the national average. Prices are also based on availability and rare (hard to find) colors.

Why does the tame parrotlet start biting you?    The Answer

 

About: The worlds smallest Parrot, known as the Tea Cup Parrot, Pocket Parrot and many other catchy names. They are cousin to the large Amazons and their personality shows it. They are described as dynamite in small packages. Parrotlets are in a group of the smallest New World parrot species, comprising several genera, namely Forpus, Nannopsittaca, and Touit. They have a stocky build and a broad tail, much like the lovebirds of East Africa and fig parrots and pygmy parrots of Australasia. They are endemic to Middle and South America.

These miniature parrots in the wild travel in flocks which, depending on the species, can range from as low as four to over 100 birds. Most species travel in flocks of about 5–40. They form lifelong and tight pair bonds with their chosen mates.

Parrotlets are the smallest commonly bred Parrot species in captivity. The genus Forpus, particularly the Celestial or Pacific Parrotlet, is growing in availability and popularity in the USA..

 

The most commonly kept Parrotlet in the USA is by far the Celestial or Pacific Parrotlet. The Mexican Parrotlet, Spectacled Parrotlet, and Yellow-faced Parrotlet are also fairly common pets. Their popularity as pets has grown due to their small size and large personalities. Parrotlets are commonly known as playful birds that enjoy chewing as much as their larger Amazon counterparts. Being highly intelligent and active parrots, parrotlets must have ample opportunities to play and exercise. Environmental enrichment must be made a part of their lives as to prevent boredom. Parrotlets keep themselves more than occupied when left alone for several hours, so long as they are provided with an array of chewable and destructible toys to play with. However, when their keepers get home, they often greet them with lovely chirps and whistles to let them know they want attention. They can mimic speech with a somewhat impressive vocabulary though their voice is very small. Males mimic better than females do. They can be very territorial inside their cages and may try to bite if a human reaches in, even to feed them. They consider the cage to be their sole territory. But the same bird, when outside his cage, can be very affectionate—flying over to land on your shoulder, eating out of your mouth, and cuddling. They do not seem to know how tiny they are, and may not be afraid of cats or dogs. Their personalities are the same as much larger parrots, so like small dogs they may try to attack other pets. On the other hand, if properly introduced they may befriend them.

Diet:     (Top )    For: Pacific Parrotlet and Green-rumped Parrotlets

LuckyFeathers: We feed each Parrotlet a high quality cockatiel seed mixed with low sunflower count. Also we mix in a high quality pellet food. Parrotlets are recommended to have both seed and pellets as a daily diet. Sunflower seeds are a great source of vitamins and fatty acids that Parrotlets need. However you must watch your bird and make sure it is not eating the sunflower seeds only. Many parrots like the sunflower seeds so well that they eat nothing else. If you find that your Parrotlet is doing this, try to leave the seed in for a longer period of time before changing it. Many times this will cause the bird to eat the rest of the seed mix after it has picked out all of the sunflowers. We also use and recommend a liquid bird vitamin that can be added to the birds water. If you are feeding your Parrotlet pellets or a seed pellet mix, we do not recommend vitamins on a daily basis. The pellets are loaded with vitamins so only give your bird liquid vitamins once or twice a week. A diet with to much vitamin content can cause your Parrotlet to get ill or have health issues. Twice a week our birds get one of the below treat meals or some kind of fruit or vegie.

Harmful Foods:
This is a short list of harmful foods for birds, obviously there are other items and you need to do your homework before you share.
Chocolate
Apple Seeds
Avocado or Guacamole
Onions
Alcohol
Mushrooms
Tomato Leaves
Salt
Caffeine (in any form)
Dried Beans (Cooked Beans Are Safe)
Any High Fat Food

Whole cereals and whole grains: spray millet, amaranth, barley, couscous, flax, whole-grain pastas, oat, quinoa (truly a fruit but used as a cereal), whole-wheat, wild rice, whole rices.

Edible flowers:
carnations, chamomille, chives, dandelion, daylily, eucalyptus, fruit tree blossoms, herb blossoms, hibiscus, honeysuckle, impatiens, lilac, nasturtiums, pansies, passion flower (Passiflora), roses, sunflowers, tulips, violets.
Note: that the leaves of some of these plants are poisonous to parrots.

Greens and/or weeds:       (Top )
mainly ; bok-choi, broccoli and/or cauliflower leaves, cabbage leaves, collard greens, dandelion leaves, kelp, mustard leaves, seaweeds, spirulina, water cress.
occasionally amaranth leaves, beet leaves, carambola (starfruit), chard, parsley, spinach & turnip leaves. All of these feature high oxalic acid contents that induces production of calcium oxalates (crystals/stones) by binding calcium and other trace minerals present in foods and goods with which they're ingested, possibly leading to calcium deficiencies and/or Hypocalcemia in minor cases, liver or other internal organ damage or failure in more severe cases.

Fruit
(except avocados which are toxic): all apple varieties, banana, all berry varieties, all citrus varieties, grapes, kiwi, mango, melons, nectarine, papaya, peach, all pear varieties, plum, star-fruit. Pits and seeds from every citrus and drupe species must always be discarded as they are intoxicating. However, achenes and tiny seeds from pseudo and true berries (bananas, blueberries, elderberries, eggplants, persimmons, pomegranates, raspberries, strawberries, tomatoes) are all acceptable.

Legumes: almonds, beans, lentils, peas, nuts and tofu.

Grain and/or Legume sprouts:
adzuki beans, alfalfa beans, buckwheat, lentils, mung beans, pinto beans, red kidney beans, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds. Caution with only lima bean and navy bean sprouts which are toxic. Red kidney beans must be thoroughly cooked, as uncooked red kidney beans are toxic.

Vegetables:
(except uncooked potatoes, uncooked onions and all mushrooms): beet, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, cucumber, all cabbage varieties, fresh beans, fresh romane lettuce, fresh peas, parsnip, all pepper varieties, all squash varieties, sweet potatoes, tomato, turnip, yams, zucchini.

Pellets:        (Top )
 specifically formulated for small tropical Parrot species.
Other fat-free, healthy and nutritious human foods.
Adding these foods provides additional nutrients and can prevent obesity and lipomas, as can substituting millet, which is relatively low in fat, for higher-fat seed mixes. Adult parrotlets often do not always adapt readily to dietary additions, so care must be taken to introduce healthy diets as young as possible (ideally weaned onto fresh foods before introducing chicks onto seeds). Parrotlets like other Parrots learn mainly by mimicry and thus most adult parrotlets will be easily encouraged to try new foods by observing another bird eating the food, or by placing the new food on a mirror.

Parrot species (including Parrotlets) are herbivores. Consequently, they should be fed vegetarian diets that are ideally supplemented with vegetal proteins. Produced by the combination of any type of whole grain/cereal with any type of legume/pulse. Eggs (hard-boiled and/or scrambled) are the only appropriately healthy source of animal proteins. Mostly for birds in either breeding, growing, moulting and/or recovering conditions. High levels of proteins (most particularly animal proteins) is unhealthy for Parrotlets and any other Parrot species living under any alternate conditions (i.e. non-breeding, pets).

 

Color Mutations : (Celestial or Pacific Parrotlet)         (Top )


Green Parrotlet  -  The normal in the wild color of the Parrotlet. It was from this color that breeders developed all of the other colors listed below.


Albino Parrotlet - Pure white Parrotlet with red eyes. Males are visually indistinguishable from females unless held under a black light, blue becomes evident. DNA sexing can also be used to differentiate sex.


Blue Parrotlet  - Color can be light powder blue, Dark Blue to turquoise. Dark eyed mutation. Males retain dark cobalt markings. There are many different shades of the blue Parrotlet. Many of them have a strong turquoise cast of color, however they are not classified as a Turquoise Parrotlet and fall into the blue mutations.

Cinnamon Parrotlet (Recessive) - Also known as Isabelle in Europe. Light yellow with more beige and green than fallow. Eyes are deep ruby red.


Photo coming soon

Cinnamon Parrotlet (Sex Linked) - Also known as "Pallid" in Europe. Similar in appearance to the recessive cinnamon but the first known sex linked mutation.


Dilute-Blue Parrotlet - Combination of the dilute and blue mutations. Light, sky blue with patches of white. Dark eyes and males retain blue markings.


Photo coming soon

Fallow Parrotlet - Light yellow with beige and green. Bright yellow face and bright red eyes. Males retain blue markings that are lighter and have violet instead of blue markings.

Gray-Green Parrotlet - Green Parrotlet with dark gray overcast. Eyes are dark. Males retain blue markings.


Lutino Parrotlet - Bright yellow Parrotlet with red eyes. Males have white instead of blue markings.

(Photo is a female)


Pastel Yellow Parrotlet (Formerly “European Yellow”) – Yellow-green bird with a green cast or color around the edge of the wings. Males retain blue markings. Eyes are dark. (Photo is a female)


Pastel-Blue Parrotlet – Similar to dilute-blue i.e., sky blue coloring with dark eyes and males retain blue markings. Can be differentiated from dilute-blue by ‘lacewing’ type of pattern across wings.

Pied Parrotlet (Recessive) - Green bird with yellow feathers scattered over the body and head. Dark eyed and males retain blue markings. In the blue mutation, the yellow feathers are replaced with white.


Pied Parrotlet (Dominant) - Similar in appearance to recessive pied but the inheritance mode is dominant. So far, the only dominant mutation Parrotlet.
(Photo is a male)


Turquoise Parrotlet – A genetically incomplete blue with both green and blue markings; face is usually green with a blue body. Dark eyes and males retain blue markings.


White Parrotlet – (Snow) A visually white Parrotlet with black eyes. Under special lighting you will see a blue cast to the rump or tail area of the bird. Also possible to have a blue cast that covers the body of the bird. Many times these are classified as dilute blues or American white by different breeders. A true white or snow will have no blue cast color.


Yellow Parrotlet – (American Yellow)

Green-Rumped Parrotlet (photo)
The green-rumped Parrotlet is the smallest of the Parrotlet breeds and is in fact the smallest parrot in the world.

(Top )


Green-Rumped Parrotlets

The Green-rumped Parrotlet (Forpus passerinus) is a small parrot. It is a resident breeding bird in tropical South America, from Caribbean regions of Colombia, Venezuela and Trinidad south and east to the Guianas and Brazil, on the downstream Amazon River. It has been introduced in Jamaica, Curaçao, Barbados and Tobago, and was not recorded on Trinidad prior to 1916.

Its habitat is open forest and scrub. The female lays five to seven white eggs in a hole in a termite nest, tree cavity, or even hollow pipe, and incubates the clutch for 18 days to hatching, with about another five weeks to fledging.

The Green-rumped Parrotlet is about 12 cm (4.8 in) long and weighs 23 g and is the smallest parrot found in the Americas. It is mainly bright green with a short tail and pinkish bill. The male has a brilliant blue wing patch, and females sometimes have some yellow on the head. The subspecies F. p. viridissimus of Venezuela, Trinidad and Tobago is darker green than the nominate F. p. passerinus, and the males have more strongly blue-tinged wings.

Green-rumped Parrotlets make light, twittering calls. They eat seeds including those of grasses. They are very gregarious and roost communally; large numbers can be seen at the roost sites at dawn and dusk.

This is a widespread and common species which has benefited from deforestation.

According to Stotz et al. 1996 and del Hoyo et al. 1997 .. birds of South America are not believed to approach the thresholds for the population decline criterion of the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources(IUCN) Red List.

However avian breeders find it more difficult to locate non-related breeding pairs.

Diet
For diet and care instructions I would suggest that you follow the information I have listed on this page. The care and diet of the green-rumped is the same as other Parrotlets. click here Diet

Bringing Home Your Parrotlet

Owning a Parrotlet is a 20-30 year commitment on average. This is a longer amount of time than raising a child. Please review the below information before bringing your new parrotlet home. We also recommend reading our Parrotlet information page and doing internet searches on your computer for parrotlet care. The internet is full of great care instructions.
 

The International Parrotlet Society's
Recommended Minimum Standards For Care of Parrotlets
(Read the flyer provided by the Parrotlet Society for care Info)

* Feed your parrotlet a healthy, varied diet on a daily basis including pellets, vegetables, beans, grains, fruits, seeds and nuts.
* Clean water should always be available. Change water at least once daily.
* Learn what foods should be avoided such as salt, sugar, chocolate, avocados and alcohol.
* Secure the services of a veterinarian certified in or experienced with avian clients.
* A well-bird examination and annual check ups are highly recommended.
* Quarantine any new bird(s) coming into your home for at least 45 days if another bird(s) is already present.
* Have nails, beaks and flight feathers trimmed when needed.
* Keep your parrotlet away from smoke, toxic plants and fumes.
* Give your parrotlet exercise opportunities and time out of its cage daily.
* Never leave Parrotlets unsupervised with children or other pets.
* Never take Parrotlets outside unless they are in a cage. Even a parrotlet with clipped wings can still fly.
* When traveling with your bird in a car, always make sure the seatbelt is securely fastened around the cage.
* Provide a cage large enough to contain many toys and perches to allow your parrotlet ample room to exercise. A recommended MINIMUM is 18" wide x 18" deep x 24" high. Maximum bar spacing is 1/2".
* Provide enrichment items and rotate them on a regular basis to alleviate boredom. Also, check them often to make sure they are not damaged and are safe.
* Clean cage, perches and toys regularly and change cage papers daily. Food and water dishes should also be cleaned daily.

Let Your Parrotlet Rest
When you first bring your Parrotlet home and put him in his new cage he will be afraid and timid about his new surroundings. Give him plenty of time by himself to get familiar with his cage. He/she may be too shy to eat with you, your family, your neighbors, your other pets walking up and staring at him/her in the cage. THE FIRST DAY HOME, LET HIM REST & EAT IN PEACE AND QUIET! Be sure that he finds his food and water. Start giving him attention AFTER you notice his food has been disturbed and is he/she is eating.

DO NOT CHANGE DIET RIGHT AWAY!
Your Parrotlet should initially be fed a healthy cockatiel diet with pellets. If you decide to change the diet, do it gradually! Young Parrotlets have been known to starve to death because their diet was switched overnight and they did not eat the new food. Have plenty of millet available. If he doesn't explore the cage to find his food, put the millet and water close to where he perches most. If he becomes fluffed up and not eating, contact your avian vet immediately.

Parrotlet Toys
Parrotlets love to play and should be given a lot of toys. Things that move such as swings and hanging toys are favorites. They also like things made from natural materials such as wood, leather and raw hide. Parrotlets can be taught to stay on playpens and baskets. This will allow your pet more freedom as well as more time with you as he is more mobile and easy to move around.

A Parrotlets Time Out of Cage

The next few days, only take him out to play with him for about 15 minutes at a time. Let him settle into his new home. Then make sure to give your Parrotlet time out of its cage daily. He is depending on you to be his companion for his entire lifetime. Play with, provide toys and exercise outlets, share affection with your feathered friend daily. Parrotlets require one on one time with their owners. It doesn't have to be a long period of time but it must be consistent. If you are gone all day, take a minute for a little play time before you leave. When you get home they'll be happy to see you and content to sit on your shoulder to watch TV or work on your computer.

Warm Temperature
Your baby is used to cuddling up against his siblings at night. Make sure his cage is placed in a warm area and cover him at night. Do not expose him to drafts.

Parrotlet Molting is Natural
Parrotlets have their first molt at about 4 to 5 months of age. This is a stressful time. He might be a little irritable and look a bit ragged in appearance. Be patient with your Parrotlet. He will probably like being misted with warm water more often at this time.

Parrotlet Biting or Nipping Phase
Sometimes young Parrotlets go through a nippy phase. To deter this behavior, say NO firmly. Never physically punish your bird. Your Parrotlet will enjoy sitting on your shoulder and having the back of his neck rubbed. He will become your best friend. Be patient during the training process.

To make the adjustment easier for your little guy (and you), please try and use these simple tips for the next two weeks or so until he is fully adapted to his new surroundings. Remember that your bird is a baby and must learn many new things.

Parrotlet Food, Diet
LuckyFeathers:
We feed each Green rumped Parrotlet a high quality cockatiel seed mixed with low sunflower count. Also we mix in a high quality pellet food. Parrotlets are recommended to have both seed and pellets as a daily diet. Sunflower seeds are a great source of vitamins and fatty acids that Parrotlets need. However you must watch your bird and make sure it is not eating the sunflower seeds only. Many parrots like the sunflower seeds so well that they eat nothing else. If you find that your Green rumped Parrotlet is doing this, try to leave the seed in for a longer period of time before changing it. Many times this will cause the bird to eat the rest of the seed mix after it has picked out all of the sunflowers. We also use and recommend a liquid bird vitamin that can be added to the birds water. If you are feeding your Green rumped Parrotlet pellets or a seed pellet mix, we do not recommend vitamins on a daily basis. The pellets are loaded with vitamins so only give your bird liquid vitamins once or twice a week. A diet with to much vitamin content can cause your Parrotlet to get ill or have health issues. Twice a week our birds get one of the below treat meals or some kind of fruit or vegie.

Harmful Foods:
This is a short list of harmful foods for birds, obviously there are other items and you need to do your homework before you share.
Chocolate
Apple Seeds
Avocado or Guacamole
Onions
Alcohol
Mushrooms
Tomato Leaves
Salt
Caffeine (in any form)
Dried Beans (Cooked Beans Are Safe)
Any High Fat Food

Whole cereals and whole grains: spray millet, amaranth, barley, couscous, flax, whole-grain pastas, oat, quinoa (truly a fruit but used as a cereal), whole-wheat, wild rice, whole rices.

Edible flowers:
carnations, chamomille, chives, dandelion, daylily, eucalyptus, fruit tree blossoms, herb blossoms, hibiscus, honeysuckle, impatiens, lilac, nasturtiums, pansies, passion flower (Passiflora), roses, sunflowers, tulips, violets.
Note: that the leaves of some of these plants are poisonous to parrots.

Greens and/or weeds:      
mainly ; bok-choi, broccoli and/or cauliflower leaves, cabbage leaves, collard greens, dandelion leaves, kelp, mustard leaves, seaweeds, spirulina, water cress.
occasionally amaranth leaves, beet leaves, carambola (starfruit), chard, parsley, spinach & turnip leaves. All of these feature high oxalic acid contents that induces production of calcium oxalates (crystals/stones) by binding calcium and other trace minerals present in foods and goods with which they're ingested, possibly leading to calcium deficiencies and/or Hypocalcemia in minor cases, liver or other internal organ damage or failure in more severe cases.

Fruit
(except avocados which are toxic): all apple varieties, banana, all berry varieties, all citrus varieties, grapes, kiwi, mango, melons, nectarine, papaya, peach, all pear varieties, plum, star-fruit. Pits and seeds from every citrus and drupe species must always be discarded as they are intoxicating. However, achenes and tiny seeds from pseudo and true berries (bananas, blueberries, elderberries, eggplants, persimmons, pomegranates, raspberries, strawberries, tomatoes) are all acceptable.

Legumes: almonds, beans, lentils, peas, nuts and tofu.

Grain and/or Legume sprouts:
adzuki beans, alfalfa beans, buckwheat, lentils, mung beans, pinto beans, red kidney beans, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds. Caution with only lima bean and navy bean sprouts which are toxic. Red kidney beans must be thoroughly cooked, as uncooked red kidney beans are toxic.

Vegetables:
(except uncooked potatoes, uncooked onions and all mushrooms): beet, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, cucumber, all cabbage varieties, fresh beans, fresh romane lettuce, fresh peas, parsnip, all pepper varieties, all squash varieties, sweet potatoes, tomato, turnip, yams, zucchini.

Pellets:        
 specifically formulated for small tropical Parrot species.
Other fat-free, healthy and nutritious human foods.
Adding these foods provides additional nutrients and can prevent obesity and lipomas, as can substituting millet, which is relatively low in fat, for higher-fat seed mixes. Adult parrotlets often do not always adapt readily to dietary additions, so care must be taken to introduce healthy diets as young as possible (ideally weaned onto fresh foods before introducing chicks onto seeds). Parrotlets like other Parrots learn mainly by mimicry and thus most adult parrotlets will be easily encouraged to try new foods by observing another bird eating the food, or by placing the new food on a mirror.

Parrot species (including Parrotlets) are herbivores. Consequently, they should be fed vegetarian diets that are ideally supplemented with vegetal proteins. Produced by the combination of any type of whole grain/cereal with any type of legume/pulse. Eggs (hard-boiled and/or scrambled) are the only appropriately healthy source of animal proteins. Mostly for birds in either breeding, growing, moulting and/or recovering conditions. High levels of proteins (most particularly animal proteins) is unhealthy for Parrotlets and any other Parrot species living under any alternate conditions (i.e. non-breeding, pets).

 

 

The Green-rumped Parrotlet (Forpus passerinus) is a small parrot. It is a resident breeding bird in tropical South America, from Caribbean regions of Colombia, Venezuela and Trinidad south and east to the Guianas and Brazil, on the downstream Amazon River. It has been introduced in Jamaica, Curaçao, Barbados and Tobago, and was not recorded on Trinidad prior to 1916.
Its habitat is open forest and scrub. The female lays five to seven white eggs in a hole in a termite nest, tree cavity, or even hollow pipe, and incubates the clutch for 18 days to hatching, with about another five weeks to fledging.
The Green-rumped Parrotlet is about 12 cm (4.8 in) long and weighs 23 g and is the smallest parrot found in the Americas. It is mainly bright green with a short tail and pinkish bill. The male has a brilliant blue wing patch, and females sometimes have some yellow on the head. The subspecies F. p. viridissimus of Venezuela, Trinidad and Tobago is darker green than the nominate F. p. passerinus, and the males have more strongly blue-tinged wings.
Green-rumped Parrotlets make light, twittering calls. They eat seeds including those of grasses. They are very gregarious and roost communally; large numbers can be seen at the roost sites at dawn and dusk.
This is a widespread and common species which has benefited from deforestation.

According to Stotz et al. 1996 and del Hoyo et al. 1997 .. birds of South America are not believed to approach the thresholds for the population decline criterion of the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources(IUCN) Red List.

However avian breeders find it more difficult to locate non-related breeding pairs

 

Subspecies

Forpus passerinus passerinus Found in the Guianas. Also known as Nominate subspecies. The male is green with a brighter green at the forehead and cheeks, underside of the body and behind the neck. Lower back, rump and upper tail are bright emerald green. Underside of wings and edge of wing are blue. Females are the same as males, but lacking any blue. They may have more yellowish colorings on forehead. Green-Rumped Parrotlets have a sleek body (feathers held tight), their eyes are dark brown, and their legs are a pale pink.

Forpus passerinus viridissimus Found in North Venezuela, Trindad and Tobago. Also known as Venezuelan Green Parrotlet. Like F.p. passerinus, but the male has paler blue markings. The green plumage on both males and females varies significantly based on what region they are from.

Forpus passerinus deliciosus Found in the lower Amazonian Basin in Brazil. Also known as Delicate Parrotlet, Santarem Passerine Parrotlet. Like F. p. passerinus, but the male has an emerald green rump with bluish tinge and broad pale blue edging on the greater wing coverts. Female has more yellow throughout and a deeper yellow facial area.

Forpus passerinus cyanochlorus Found in Roraima-Brazil. Also known as Schlegel's Parrotlet. Like F.P. Passerinus, but the female's tail feathers are more green on the underside. Also has more yellow throughout and a green forehead.

Forpus passerinus cyanophanes Found in the areas around Northern Colombia. Also known as Rio Hacha Parrotlet. Like F.p. passerinus. Male's blue wing-markings are more violet, and show more blue when wing is closed than in the other subspecies.
