congratulations on selecting a parrotlet as a pet. Forum members are correct---they usually need a lot of attention and love, and good food/environment.

I obtained Ollie from a great bird breeder, who is no longer selling parrotlets. Very disappointed on that prospective. Parrotlets are bitey birds, but there are ways to calm them down from that annoying behavior. My Oliver (Ollie) is certainly my companion - baby, since my babies have grown!
Ask all your concerns to the breeder you select to get basic information on your bird. The forum members can fill in the rest! best to you.

Where I got Levi from they are breeders / bird store. From my understanding they were breeders who realized their customers needed somewhere to buy supplies so they opened a store!

They post on Facebook frequently asking for volunteers to come socialize the babies and play with their boarders... If the shop was at all closer to me I would be there every weekend!!

Tumi's also from a parrot shop, which takes birds from breeders still unweaned and raises them and then sells them. All the sell are baby birds (quite well socialized) and some parrot supplies. Either directly from a good breeder or from a parrot shop are the best places to find a well-socialized bird, but you really should try to meet the bird first and let the bird pick you.

Both times, I purchased birds from local bird stores, I was able to meet before hand and spend time while they were still being weaned. It is very common for me to see the new owners walking around the store with their new babies getiting to know then before it is time to go home.
