We have four parakeets. The blue parakeet is one of the four. The parakeets are Australian Budgies, while the other, the Parrotlet, is a Cobalt Blue Parrotlet. Both are male.

Wow I didn’t realize how small parrotlets were until this video! How adorable, I always pictured them slightly bigger then a parakeet!

I know this is a year old but.... I bought a parrolet (TUCO) and then I felt he needed a buddy. So I bought a parakeet (Cha Cha). I had them in separate cages next to each other at first and left the doors open. I kept a good eye on them to see what would go on. Tuco was a little annoyed there was another birdie but ignored Cha Cha at first. Then about a week later, Cha Cha started going in Tucos cage and wanted to hang with him. To my surprise knowing how territorial Tuco is, he let Cha Cha stay in his house! Cha kept trying to get closer and closer to Tuco little by little and next thing I know they are side by side and Cha Cha is preening Tuco everyday around the same time in the morning and throughout the day. Tuco actually loved it and turns his head around and Cha goes all around Tucos head! I kept Cha’s cage next to Tuco with the door open for awhile just in case Cha wanted to get away or go back home. To my happiness, Tuco allowed Cha to move in immediately and they have never been apart since! I even removed cha’s cage and now they are roomies!! Tuco can still get annoyed with Cha when she tries to kiss him every now and then but he just squawks at her he doesn’t attack her. So now they are buddies and sit next to each other and sleep next to each other every night!! I think Tuco is a typical territorial parrotlet, but I think he really wanted a buddy to keep him company too... it’s really sweet how they are friends now and are hilarious together. I’m so happy it worked out! They are my babies and keep me smiling which we all need I think!! That video was so adorable you made too!! 🐦 ♥️🐤🐦😆👏

I once rescued a parakeet that was in my yard and he got to hang out with my parrotlets who wanted to bite him. parakeet was so smart he opened the cage I had him in. He then flew to my parrotlets and was eating their food and standing next to them. When they would turn to attack he would hop from left to right over them and they just gave up because he was too fast.

I recently introduced a 2 month old hand fed parrotlet to my 7 month old english budgie. My parrotlet acts very similar as this video but my budgie gets annoyed and bops the parrotlet on the head with his top beak when the parrotlet tries something annoying. They bicker a lot but love to visit each other in and out of their cages. No grooming going on yet. The English budgie is considerably larger than the parrotlet. I wanted a friend for my budgie without the constant chatter of 2 budgies and so far is working very well.

This is a great scene to show a size difference between the two. I was thinking which ones are better so this size difference is a great to give me some ideas too.

That's a big parakeet mine is 13 years old and he never grew to be that big I'm honestly surprised he is still alive he should be at his maximum life expectancy soon.

It seems like the smaller a bird is the more sass and bossy energy they store. 😂

Parrotlet says, gimmie kiss 😂. I wonder if I would have gotten lucky using that head bob with the ladies in the 80’s ...🥳🥳🤪🥳🥳

Yours ate blue, mine are yellow. My budgie chases my parrotlet. Your parrotlet seems very gentle, unlike some can be very aggressive. Mine now, sometimes he gets quite aggressive for no reason.

Back when deciding on what parrot to get, I read that parrotlets were fine with people, but aggressive with other birds. So I would say just tread with caution lol
But apart from that, it's an interesting video to compare the species. I always thought that budgies were smaller than parrotlets, but it's really funny to see a budgie larger than another parrot species.
