Thank you :) Yes please give her my email Thank you so much :)


Dear Kelli:

I have been in contact with the breeder. She was one of the best parrotlet breeders in the country but when her husband became terminally ill, she had to stop breeding and find new homes for her birds. That was several years ago. Her husband, unfortunately, passed away and she had to sell her home and move from a large home to a small apartment in her daughter’s home. This arrangement did not allow her to bring many things including her breeding records; all of which were destroyed more than 5 years ago. So I am very sorry but she has no information on her birds available than what is on the band – the birds were hatched in 2003, they were unrelated and they were hatched in Michigan. Other than that, all the pedigree information has been destroyed.

I am sorry I could not find out more information for you. Unfortunately, as more and more breeders give up their birds due to the economy and family obligations as well as illnesses and other issues that develop over time, more and more of this information is going to be lost. As I said I do know that the breeder these birds came from took excellent care of her birds and you can be assured the birds came from strong, healthy stock.

I hope this helps and best of luck with your birds.

Sincerely yours,
