Oh why oh why!!!!! He was so fat and so cute and his coloring! Bright red, yellow green & blue! So yes I left with him. He is so sweet. He just melts in my hand when I scratch his cheeks. He is a color mutation of the normal green cheeked conure. If you are looking for a parrot with a sweet temperament that loves to cuddle this is the type of bird for you. They get very attached to their owners and some even learn to talk. They require a lot of attention and will demand it, lol. My normal green cheek is talking and whistling now, he has a small squeaky voice. He has been taking up some of my free time, but I love it.
The pied baby parrotlet is doing well. I am planning to pull him from the nest the end of this week. It looks to be a pied, but I cannot see any pin feathers yet (he is still a pink rubber ball), but his nails look clear.
