Skipper was my dear Cherry Headed Conure that was 28 years old. He was born November 2, 1981. I think I adopted him in April, 1982. He just passed away on January 8, 2010. He was a member of our family. He stole my heart right away right after I adopted him. He talked clearly saying "Merry Christmas", "Going Camping", and he'd barked like a puppy. We'd take him camping with us, and he'd play with his toys. My husband would share his bacon and eggs with him in the morning. I used to call Skipper, "Little Bud". I'm surely going to miss him. I'm a bird lover so right now I don't know if I will get another bird anytime soon. To me there will never be another Skipper.

I purchased Kiwi about a year ago, he was half a year old and handfed which helped him be more social. He used to scream a lot more when his wings were clipped, but now that we have let them grow out he is less dependent and flying around the house. I should have worked on potty training before hand haha but it was too late. I'm now trying to associate a noise with every time he poops, hopefully it can become our summer project. He is a definite part of the family, he sometiems walks on the floor with the dogs, though no barking yet. He gets up early in the morning, and if I set food out for him in the kitchen and some water trickling into a bowl he will be happy and singing to himself while I get more sleep. He loves grapes and breaking into mixed nuts tubs in the pantry. His favorite is taking warm showers with me, he will sing and make water noises till I let him on my finger and sprinkle water on him till he is soaked! As for drying him, I usually have to point the hair dryer in his general direction till he grooms dry more. His vocabulary includes water noise, his own version of 'please' and 'thank you', kiwi, and 'what are you doing' in a very gravely voice. He likes to meet new people and having his head rubbed poofy :] which of course makes up for all the times when he's not adorable which is just poop and alert screeching. I'd only recommend a conure when you're prepared for a little flying toddler, the mess and misunderstanding which gives way to a love for the person they are. They live for at least 20 years, and though it's not easy, I can't imagine giving him away to a stranger ever.

We have a breeder pair that a neighbor let us look after. They finally laid 4 eggs. We got 1 baby out of the clutch. It is 3weeks old today. Have started hand-feeding it to tame it and make a personal pet of it. Have named it MIMZY. And yes the parents are quite noisy. But they ae very beautiful.

I have a Half Moon that is about 33 yr. old, I am his only owner.
As of this morning he is not using his feet. He stays still and can't grip anything.
I am worried about him. Can you help?

We just purchased a 4 month old male Dusky Conure. His name is Dusky. He is the cutest sweetest and best pet we have ever owned. In 3 days he has learned to come to his name, and gives kisses constantly. I can see him trying to mimic words. At night when hes real sleepy, he will crawl under my blankets and cuddle up against my body. I would so let him sleep with us if i didnt think he would be crushed. Its amazing how much Joy this little fella is bringing to our lives. I highly recommend a dusky conure to anyone looking for a bird companion.

I have acquired a golden capped conure and he seems to have adapted quite well,he is around six years old. However, he bit one of my sons quite badly in the corner of his mouth while sitting on his shoulder. Could this have been jealousy? I've only had him a couple of weeks and he does like me and sits gently on my shoulder all of the time.

I have a 10 month old Jenday who is spoiled ROTTEN beyond belief. He hasn't started talking yet, but loves to "click" to get kisses. He is trying to do the wolf whistle and getting really good at it. He is a total riot! I put my hand in the cage when I want him out and he gives me loves, kisses and rubs all over my hand. (I haven't had him DNA'd, but to me, he's a he, lol) He also announces anytime the door opens or shuts, and anytime my husband comes home from work he screams. In the morning before the kids get up, I have to walk around really quiet and not talk or Patrick (named after Patrick Starfish) will wake everybody up. He's my baby, that's for sure, and I cant wait to spend many many more years together!

My jenday is named Jendy, I found him at the local pet store. When I asked for a good bird they kinda laughed, so I asked for the meanest 1 and found jendy. I gave it to my girlfriend "who is a vet tech" as a b-day present. The vet there said no one could hold him but from the first day I brought him home He loves my girlfriend, he likes to play in her hair, lol. We take him outside, he flies around a little then returns home. We leave the front door open until he returns, and yeah, the first time was an accident. He really likes to laugh with us and sounds just like me, lol. And he attacks over weight people for some reason. My neighbor is deathly scared of him, lol. happy timez

Our cherry headed conure (Fred) is 24 years old and is much a part of the family. His beak started going crooked last year and the vet needs to file it every month or 2. The last 3 times, he went into seizures after having this done to him. The vet thinks it's either due to the stress of the situation or maybe he has a heart problem. I hold my breath each time and hope he comes out of it. Has anyone else had the same problem?
