We had a Pacific Parrotlet for a few years. It was technically my son's but my wife was home all day with it and ended up really bonding with it. It was a great bird that was never noisy and small enough it wasn't a huge mess.

We went on vacation and had a friend sit him at their house. When we got back I think he was really mad at my wife for I guess "abandoning" him for a week. After that he bit her every time she pulled him out and we ended up finding him another home.

If you get one make sure it comes from a good breeder that handles them right from when they are young. We sure do miss that bird. Good luck!
