Skittle Katherine (Katrina Rescue) - Pacific Parrotlet

Skittle Katherine is a 2 year old Pacific parrotlet. We adopted her after hurricane Katrina. She was running around in New Orleans and a friend found her. She was all torn up her wing was broken and feather were all messed up. He rushed her to the vet and she doing great now. We have had her about six months now.


She likes to eat and she will chew your clothes to pieces if you let her. She loves looking in a mirror.

We love her so much, but she has a personality problem. She is mean she bites all the time. She's not afraid of anything. She thinks she is the queen and she is really spoiled rotten. The vet said it is from her staying out in the wild and fending for herself.

Have you looked on-line for help with her biting? I'm sure there's some way to re-train her. I just don't know anything about birds. That was good of you to rescue her.
