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.

Very cute. Parrotlets are so cute. Fiji looks like a lot of fun.

Fiji is just gorgeous! Glad to hear he is doing well and adjusting nicely!
They do have HUGE appetites, don't they? Mine eats enough to feed like 12 keets, LOL
I've broken Igor of his biting, except the occasional nip, which always seems to catch me somewhere really tender! He leaves little beak indents that last for an hour or more!
Have you gotten Fiji hand tamed at all yet? Igor still runs from me so I still have to just scoop him up, which he tolerates, except occasionally, which is when he nips.
He gets along famously with Sunny, no fighting except for little spats, which Sunny seems to initiate! LOL
Seeing how gorgeous Fiji is makes me want a blue one, too...


The best way to forget your troubles is to wear tight shoes.
