Are Parrotlets Legal in My State? What Licenses Do I Need?

Hello! I would like to learn more about possibly breeding parrotlets and how to go about finding out if it's legal where I'm located. I don't want to become a big time breeder, but keep things small, maybe one or two breeding pairs. I just want to do it as a hobby. Is it necessary to apply for a license? Kind regards, Jen Dear Jen: Thank you for your email. Unless you live in the state of Hawaii or the territory of Puerto Rico, parrotlets are legal to keep and breed. Certain states do require permits to breed - CO, NY, FL, NJ and GA come to mind immediately but you should check with your state's Dept. of Agriculture and Dept. of Fish and Game to be sure. Sincerely yours, Sandee L. Molenda, C.A.S. Secretary, International Parrotlet Society
