I went to a bird show and fell in love with a parrotlet at one of the booths. At lunch I convinced my husband that such a tiny little bird would cause no additional trouble after the two we already had (boy was I wrong...). When we went back the parrotlet I wanted was gone but another breeder had this fiesty little baby left. I decided to go ahead and take him and it has been an adventure ever since..

Hi! My name is Shrimp

I am a Pacific Parrotlet from Columbia, SC.

Shrimpins, Shrimpcessa, Shrimp-sa-butt, Shrimpinstein

9 years old   M

Pacific Parrotlet

Millet spray, carrots, CHEESE, brocolli (its the best to make messes with).

Anywhere my mom is.

I don't like anyone drawing attention away from my mom. That cockatiel and conure better watch out when I am around!

She scratches my cheeks just right, gives me CHEESE, and lets we walk all over that silly cockatiel.

I love string cheese and I do a special cheese song when I get some. I also do a silly circle dance whenever my mom's friend brings her parrotlet over. I try to attack that conure whenever she is getting too upity. My mom thinks I'm crazy but it's worth some feather loss to show her who's boss around here..

What I lack in size I make up for in attitude!.

  Hey
I am a parrotlet that is also living with a greencheek and I agree that they can get rather uppity and need put in there place. Today Sprite was riding on mom's shoulder while she cleaned and she felt so special. When mom walked by my cage I KNOW she stuck her tongue out at me. - Hedwig

Come visit me, Hedwig, Sunshine, Sprite, Luna, Snowball & Saphira.

  Oh, do I ever understand -- we just can't convince our little birds that you aren't supposed to rush into battle with birds over twice their size! ^_^

Come visit me, Baby Lily, Roscoe, Penelope, Xavier & Baby Kip.

  All of these pictures were snapped meer moments before SHrimp lunged at either Scampi or Beaky and Beaky flew away in sheer terror or Scampi retaliated by grabbing some feathers. Scampi once pulled Shrimp's entire tail out (minus 3 feathers, it was actually kinda funny) and bit the end of one of her toes off. Scampi is VERY well behaved and is usually really patient with Shrimp but sometimes he can't take her attitude anymore and retaliates. I have to keep a very close eye on them because he could really, really hurt her if he tried. Parrotlets are very bossy so anyone who already has a larger parrot and is thinking of getting one needs to consider the additional time and effort to keep the birds seperated most of the time.

Come visit me, Shrimp, Scampi, Henny & Beaky.

  How cute, it looks like they get along just fine. That's great, I have 5 birds some get along and some don't. Life is so much easier when everyone gets along.

Come visit me, Kiwi, Greenlee, Jolea Renee (formerly Brutus), Sundance R.I.P. Sweetheart, Popeye RIP my sweet baby girl...... & Jack.

  I think "Shrimp" is one of the cutest names I've ever heard for a parrotlet. I am sure you are not "shrimpy" in personality though!

Come visit me, Marguerite, Bartok, Sophie & Winston.
