i wanted to experience hand feeding a baby parrotlet and watching it grow up. my first baby parrotlet, chi chi, died from lack of heat. Taco is less fragile and now we have better equipment then we did with chi chi. the piture above is a pucture of me sitting on a napkin.. Awards

Hi! My name is Taco ~ I JUST LEARNED TO FLY!!!!!!!

I am a Parrotlet from Palmetto, FL.

tic tac, taco taco, bird, takito, taco bird

5 years old   M


the only thing he eats right now is baby birdie food, and every once in a while he chews on millet spray

well none at the moment for now he lives in a small clear box in an incubator.

when people wake him up when he is sleeping

she does not eat Tacos. (photos will be updated every week until he has all his feathers) he is too young to be in the news crew. he will also get a scrapbook next week!

he acts like he's hurt or coughing. and then i get worried and take him out. then he stops, looks up and bites my finger. then i figure out he was faking!.

scroll to the bottom of my page and then slowly scroll up to watch me grow! the photo at the top is my current look..

  Your Story is same as mine!
how you got your bird is pretty much the same as mine- Except I recieved Olivia (My bird) a little older and only had a week of hand-feeding before she was weaned- Anyway, I am buying one of her little sisters/brother, her same parents had some more parrotlets! I am adopting one pretty soon, and they are about the same as when you got Taco- (I'm guessing- I only saw them last week and they had no feathers then) The breeder told me to wait until a few feathers come in to tell the color- And I'm thinking they look about when you got Taco- Well I have some questions, do they need a heat lamp? And is it okay to cuddle them frequently/Hold them? Or is too much handling bad for such a small baby? I bet the breeder will answer most of my questions but you were a beginner like me and well- I just thought it would be best if I asked you just in case!

P.S- I can really tell Taco LOVES YOU! Most of the pictures he looks up and looks really happy in his eyes and even sometimes looks like hes smiling :)

Come visit me, Falcon & Olivia.

Yes!! That Western shindig you all have been waiting for is finally here!!!

Date: Saturday, September 24th
Place: Dodge City (Milonga page #165848)

Come on over to Dodge City this weekend, and you are guaranteed plenty of excitement and thrills. The infamous outlaw Jenny Ringo is planning a jail break for her sweetie Alfie and his sidekick Mo. She and her gang will be facing the might of Marshalls Old Grizzly Kidd, Beauregard Earp and Simon Dillon. Plus Sheriff Indigo, and all the deputies: Kidd Stormy, Kaji, Lizzie and Cookie, and anybirdy else we sign up between now and then. Remember the shootout at the OK Corral? They were amateurs!!

We will also be asking for volunteers to form a posse to round up that mangy varmint who tried to frame our friend SamIAm for bank robbery, and who has ambushed him more than once since then (and ruined a perfectly fine hat!). We are going to bring in the weasel for sure....not that he is really a weasel. We think he is a magpie or a crow or maybe even a buzzard. We haven't gotten a good look at him yet.

After all that excitement, be sure to enjoy all the pleasures of Dodge City. The Long Perch Saloon hostessed by the lovely Miss Sweetie Pep will be serving food and drinks, dealing cards and offering an amazing display of can can dancing by the lovely Chi chi, our candidate for BOTM. For those of you with a darker side, Madame Maxie's Bordello is right over the tracks from there, but we won't discuss that here.

Enjoy a stroll thru this rustic western town, and then to top off the evening we will be announcing all the winners of the profile pic and avatar contest.

Now that is just an evening no birdy in his right mind could pass up, so if you don't make it I might just have to lock you up on suspicion of insanity!!

Marshall Old Grizzly Kidd

Come visit me, Kiddo loves SweetPepper!.

  Hey Taco :D
Good for your Mommy to do cross country running. Sounds like fun/good exercise. And you still don't eat on your own? Taco, you are so spoiled. I should train my Mommy to feed me too! Hope all's well :D

Come visit me, Oiseau:Thanks Everyone!!! :D & Aden.

  Congratulations Taco
Congratulations on learning to fly!!! :D Your mommy must be so proud. My mommy finally gave up on clipping my wings because it made me so sad. It's good to have free roam of the house as long as mommy's watching me. You are going to have so many fun adventures now that you're growing up! Safe Fling! Sent you a vote, good wishes, and birdie kisses :D --Aden

Come visit me, Oiseau:Thanks Everyone!!! :D & Aden.

  Hi Taco! :D
I'm sorry to hear that Jerry tries to bite you...mean jealously is no good. Yesterday Oiseau bit me really hard :( I cried and mommy had to put Oiseau in her cage for time out. I'm scared of her now. Mommy always tries to be right next to us when we play, but Oiseau is so sneaky. She's always trying to bite me and it makes mommy sad. I'm mommy's favorite because I always giver her the nicest snuggles. She has the flu today so she wont let me cuddle by her face, but I'm ok with just being next to her for now. Hope all's well with you and your human mommy.
Love, Aden :D

Come visit me, Oiseau:Thanks Everyone!!! :D & Aden.

  Hi Taco
Maybe when you get a little bigger your sister will play with you. Big sisters always think little brothers are bothersome, and anyway you're too little yet for her to know how to play with you, you'll be big soon....Left a v4u.
