Deciding on adopting a parrotlet
Hello, I have found a pacific blue parrotlet to adopt. There is 2 of them to adopt I just want one. One of the males has 2 crooked legs and the other has just 1 crooked leg. They are 5 months old. What would cause this? The 1 can perch the other one cannot. They are both starting to speak.
I can't find much info on these guys. This is not my first bird but would be my husbands first bird. It won't be his bird but i would like this to be a pleasurable experience for him. How dirty are these birds? Lots of dander? are they really messy with their food?
The lady said they are a little nippy which is fine with me as long as they eventually will be nice. I also have 2 dogs and what I have read they can be mean to other animals. I don't want to have to put my dogs away just to get the bird out.
Or would I be just better off getting a budgie?
