So i have been a little MIA since we got our new boy, Fiji. I have been at another forum trying to learn all about that species as my knowlege when i got him was very basic. I pretty much knew they had voracious appetites (BOY DO THEY!!) and that their bite is much harder than that of a budgie (and it IS).
Peri is very interested in Fiji. Bleu is interested in staying where the action is at but as long as it is from inside the cage. He is still having wing feather issues, and I am about to take him for xrays - i wonder if there is somekind of structural damage that causes him pain when he uses his wings to flutter around. So he is very happy to play inside the cage and join in from the ceiling when the other two are playing on top.
Peri has been playing with Fiji on top of Peri and Bleu's cage, and they also like to play together on the floor. Here are some pictures of them in one of their very first play times together.
I LOVE this last one it makes me laugh every time the way Bleu is like trying to break through the ceiling. It just looks like parrots gone wild LOL!!!
The boys are still very bonded and happy together (Peri and Bleu) but Fiji's mate is me. Fiji requires alot of time with me because he does not have a mate. I am very happy about the way that they are playing together so well so that FIji can have friends and have some parrot social stimulation instead of always humans.
I still have to always be watching when they play together as Fiji is still a little baby (three months old - almost 4 months) and is not used to interacting with another species. Parrotlets have been known to be very territorial and with their bite being along the lines of a cockatiel, one must supervise their interactions.
