Tips for bonding with new parrotlet?

I am used to my birds being calmer so I'm new to bonding with these little scatterbrains.

It's necessary to give your parrotlet at least one hour a day outside the cage. More is better, of course.
If the weather is nice, I will take Ollie caged (of course) outside on our deck. He loves the change and listens to his cousins singing/calling. He will bath and eat more, too. I never leave him while he is outside for the 15-20 minutes.
Towards the evening hour (between 5-7) is a great time to calm down and bond. Ollie gets out of the cage and gets his head scritches. It's the best time of day for me. He likes bedtime around 7-7:30. He nibbles my fingers to let me know he is ready for "nite-nite." I pull the shades down and while giving him scritches when I am home. It's our routine for bedtime. Best to you.

There are helpful tips in the bonding and training section. Parrotlets are definitely unique and passionate.

Hello and welcome.

Read all you can about the p'lett. They are complicated. Spend as much time as you can with the parrotlett. Give your bird(s) treats and talk with them all the time. You are correct in saying that they are scatterbrains. But I love my birdie!!!!

Boy you said it! LOL
Parrotlets have so much energy, I know what you mean. I have two Bourks and three Parrotlets, and my Parrotlet are way more high mateninance. They almost never just hang out, always crawling, chewing, playing, finding trouble. It makes them a lot of fun but they definitely keep you on your toes!!

Mostly they will bond with you by just spending time with them. Let them play, be themselves...if your little one is very active try finding little objects or activity to entertain them and play with them. As time goes on and they grow more accustomed to you they will have their "calm" moments also but I find I just have to go with whatever mood they are in.
