SweetPea, the Pet of the Day
Name: SweetPea
Age: One year old
Gender: Female
Kind: Pacific Parrotlet
Home: New Jersey, USA
 
   This is my little Sweet Pacific Parrotlet, SweetPea. She is the sweetest little bird. This picture is a good example of her always wanting to get involved, even if that means playing wrestling figures with my sons. So she climbed to the top of the ladder, in the ladder match. She is a ham, and so nicely posed at the top of the ladder when she saw my camera!

    She was five months old in that picture, and parrotlets are very small - they only grow to about four to five inches long, though getting her to hold perfectly still when I have a ruler handy is not something I have managed yet. Though they are small, parrotlets are known to be fearless, feisty little birds - and she certainly fits that description. After all, look at all those "army men" she beat to get to be the "top bird!" She is also as sweet as could be, and wants to be part of everything the family does. She's just the cutest, with her cheery colors and bright personality and has won all our hearts.
