I need to know what kine of bird mine is..
When I originally lost my beloved pet, Love Bird Tangie, I started searching for a replacement on the internet. Thangie was a yellow lutino with the red face. After helplessly trying to find one that looked like Tangie, I decided to get a pair of green parrotlets. I simply do not understand these poor things. They are loveable, playful but do not let me touch them; they will byte. They have by nature a little bit of black color on the tip of their peak. They are both females, in the beginning I thought one was a male because one of them would do the mate dance for the other, the one playing along with the one dancing starting laying eggs. So I thought there would soon be baby birds. But to my surprise the other one, the one that danced, starting also laying eggs. Now both are nesting. I do not know what to do with them because when I leave them out they are playful but can be messy; they spray fluid as urine.
They seem to like foods that I eat, like corn bread, chicken, rice and other foods. I do not know if this is good for them. I still cannot train them to stand on my finger like I used to do with a parakette I had and the Love Bird Tangie. So I need help in understand my pair of green peach faced parrotlets. I do not know exactly what they are so I have included a picture.
Any help from you will help. I need to make them a happy pair.
