Breeding Lifespan of Parrotlets


Can I ask a question. How old can Parrotletts get and still produce babies ?


Dear Kevin:

Usually, males have a longer breeding life than hens. It really depends on how the birds are managed especially with females. The younger they bred, the amount of clutches they had and the quality of the food, housing and rest periods are big determining factors with females but generally speaking they can last 4-8 years. I’ve had males continue to produce into their teens but generally its 7-10 years.
