Hello, my name is Lyn. I am a small breeder in Houston, TX. I started breeding lovebirds and finches about eleven years ago. Then I discovered these little parrotlets and fell in love. I think they are the teacup birds of the parrot world. They really have no clue that they are only pocket size. You should treat them firmly. They are pocket size but they think they are a Macaw. They are very smart and I was amazed to learn how great of a memory they have and how easily they are to train. There is nothing I like more than cuddling with one of my parrotlets while enjoying a movie and peanut butter sandwich.
