The parrotlets are a compact parrot, little known as the pocket parrot.
Unlike the linnies they are a better pet if they are single birds. To keep the parrotlets tame it is best to handle them reguarly. They are very easily taught to sit on your shoulder, they nussle the ear and occasionally will pinch to get your attention.
They can be taught to talk. These little birds are perfect for people who are in apartments or small townhouses. Also make great pets for your first bird. They come in a variety of colors.
Linnies are indeed a parakeet but are a compact little parrot.
Linnies are not big flyers, but are very happy running around their cage and hanging upside down from the top of their cage.
They are not real active birds and size is about 7 inches long. They make wonderful pets when hand fed and are tame.
They are very good talkers and are very amusing to watch as they run around their cage. They have a sweet chattering voice, and are a little more vocal and active than the tiny pocket parrot (parotlettes).
These make wonderful pets for the person who has everything. Their care is minimal and someone can get hours of enjoyment with them. They come in a variety of colors dark green, Olive, turquoise, cobalt (blue), lutino (yellow) and mauve.
