Someone posted this proven pair that needed a new home on Craigslist, so I drove about 5 hours roundtrip to adopt them. They're a great pair, still getting to know them though..

Hi! My name is Peanut & Grape

I am a Pacific Parrotlet from Antioch, CA.

Not yet, we're pretty new around here...

7 years old   M

Pacific Parrotlet

Millet, leafy greens, whole wheat bread, egg food.

Perched snuggling right beside eachother.

These guys hate to be handled, they've been breeders for a couple years and don't like to socialize with people.

The food is great here and our living area is so spacious! Our old home was nothing like this--we feel like royalty now.

Grape is so abusive! She plucks Peanut's head practically bald! The vet says this is okay since both the birds seem to enjoy this excessive preening and nobody is hurt. Weird breeder beahvior..

Millet please!.

  Hello Grape and Peanut.
Have you been in the nest box yet? I bet it would be a good place to snuggle up together. I don't have a box but I do have a hut. I also have a hamster wheel on the side of my cage. So does my sister, Annabelle. Sometimes we both end up running in them at the same time and Mama says it looks like we are racing to get to nowhere fast. I also have a small hamster ball that I like to run around in. Sometimes we go to schools, daycares and nursing homes. That is one of the "tricks" that everyone loves. I gave you two a vote. Talk to you again, soon. Tinkerbell

Come visit me, Kudzu.

  Hello Grape and you, too Peanut.
How's the playing coming along? Are you getting used to the wonderful world of toys? I hope so. You must be brave and try new things. I'll leave a vote on my way back. See ya. Tinkerbell.

Come visit me, Kudzu.

  Hi Peanut & Grape
Thanks for dropping by and for the vote too. Here's a vote for you too. I'm so glad you guys are doing much better and getting braver!! That is funny how you can get your swing going so well that you can't get off, just gotta hold on for dear life and close your eyes!! I know it was rude for mom to laugh at, but it was funny, i bet you see that now. LOL Thanks for the neat update. Don't be afraid of that box, I hope you get brave enough to go into it to sleep at night. No pressure for babies LOL . Gotta fly bye!!!

Come visit me, Charlie.

  Good morning guys.
Hope you are doing good on this Sunday morning. It is beautiful outside, here and Mama says she'll take me with her when she goes walking. We all get turns at going places with her. I have to go by myself because there's no one I really get along with. I sit in a little pouch with a window that Mama wears around her waist. A friend made it for her just for us little guys to ride in. It even has a tiny perch for me to sit on. Here's a vote for you guys. Talk to you later, Tinkerbell.

Come visit me, Kudzu.

  Hi Peanut & Grape
Just thought I'ld say HI and drop in a vote tooo. Are you guys getting used to your new home now? What have you been up to? Mom gave me a new toy, but only a little each day. I'm still scared of it. She put millet spray near it and i didn't go near it at all. LOL Bye for now.

Come visit me, Charlie.

  Hello Peanut and Grape.
Just wait until those new toys make it into your cage. You will have a ball when you get used to playing with them. I just love toys that I can chew up and completely demolish. I am working on a tiny pinata at the moment. There better be a treat in the middle after I go to the trouble of shredding it. Here's a vote for you guys. See ya'. Tinkerbell

  Hi Peanut and Grape
Thanks for visiting me. Here's another vote too. Dad usually cover's me at night and I like to twitter /play and hang upside down to shred the paper ontop of my cage (Mom or Dad puts paper up there every night). It is fun to play in the tent when noone can see you. Glad the you aren't afraid of it and that your coming out of your shells more too. Bye for now.

Come visit me, Charlie.

  Hey, you two.
Just wanted to say hello and give you a vote. I'm glad you have such a great home, now, with a lot of room to play. Adjusting to a new home has to be much easier with you having each other. I have a blue parrotlet sibling, but we each have our own cage. Sometimes we play together nicely, but other times.....I'll talk to you later. Tinkerbell

Come visit me, Kudzu.

  Hi Peanut & Grape
You 2 make such a cute pair. I hope you do become people friendly soon. I know I don't like it when Mom takes me out of the cage either though. Here's a vote for being so cute. BYE
