  1. Oh yeah, didn't use a clicker, I work nights and haven't been able to get to pet shop to get one yet but will do on my next day off, will get my daughter to try the chopstick as well kippy doesn't go to bite her as much as me haha x
  2. Wow wow wow, so excited today. Just got to tickle Chester for a second, he won't take any food off me but it's a start and the chopstick worked first time can't believe it, got kippy to step on it and really praised her and gave her a treat, she did it 3 times, I know it's only a small thing but it's a step in the right direction, I'm very happy Chester let me touch him but kippy doesn't like me touching him and I can't make my mind up whether she doesn't want me near him or Chester near me, but thanx again for the suggestions going to leave it at that for now then try again later, so so so happy x

  4. Hi, my name's dawn and I have recently got two parrotlets for my birthday, I did a bit of research before I bought them but mainly about whether I had the right equipment for them as we had a budget for 9yrs that we had to have put to sleep at Christmas after he suffered a second stroke. We actually went to buy another budget but I saw the parrotlets and fell in love, I went home first and had a look on the internet about them and felt I had to get them, I am so glad I did I love them to bits but I am having a few problems and was wondering if anyone had any advice for me. I bought my parrotlets from a pet shop, I have since read a lot more about them so I went back to the shop and asked a few questions, I have now found out that my birds are about a year old and they have not been tamed. I have a green male that I have called moonchester and a female blue that is called kippax, kippy is very playful and adventurous and will accept food off me and let me stroke her belly, Chester is very timid and won't let me near him he flies to the corner of the cage where he seems to know I can't reach him, kippy tends to bully him a bit although they do cuddle and green each other, just today Chester seems to be a bit more assertive but I need to know whether to force myself on him or do I just keep trying putting my hand in the cage and see what happens, I've had them 16 days now and I want to let them out of the cage but need them to be trained a little bit first, has anyone got any advice for me please
