My husband and I have a very young jenday conure. Its name is Graceful. It was the name given by the caretaker at the pet store, but we decided to keep it because it describes its personality. Today we are taking Graceful to its first veterinary appt hopefully we'll find its gender later. Graceful is clownish, cuddly, brattish at times, but lots of fun. It is beginning to learn a few words, it tries them at night before going to sleep. Graceful is also a very picky eater. We have not been able to feed him fruit and veggies. Grace does love bean sprouts, dehydrated mango, papaya bits and shredded carrot, but it feeds mostly on pellets. We are trying to add more variety to its diet. Ah, its day is not complete without a bath. Lately, it likes to dunk pellets in its water dish after the bath, and prefers balsa wood toys to chew/destroy. It hisses and gets aggresive with a platic ball with a rattle we don't know why though. What is most amazing is that it has never been exposed to that kind of toy before. We wonder what it reminded it of, or what danger Graceful associates it with.

We have a 6 mos Jenday Very lovable bird, big kisser, quite playful, loves to wrestle and take showers, and starting talking. However, we have a 4 yearold maroon belly conure who does not like him. She bites him and has starting pulling feathers. We will have to adopt him out. Caution when bringing a new bird home, make sure your other bird(s) like it. Looking for a home for Ernie.

My Nanday is Panama. I got him/her as a Mother's day present 2005. Panama was about 12 weeks when I got him. When I leave for work he says "Mom come back" and when I get home he says "Mom your back". He can also say Thank you, Kiss Kiss, step up, I'm Panama, bath, go to bed, pretty bird, baby.
Panama also plays baby, he lays on his side and takes one of his claws up to his beak so i will pet and stroke his head and all of his feathers. He loves to take showers or a bath in the sink. I take him everywhere. He will go to anyone in the family and some people outside of the family as long as I offer him to them and if he is in the mood. Although, I did have someone come up behind me and try to take him and he did bite them and draw blood. Panama is momma's bird and loves to be on my shoulders to do chores around the house. He makes life interesting and eats everything we do.

I received a blue crown conure a few months ago as a gift and he is hilarious. His previous owners taught him many words, some as "colorful" as he. When we first got him, he would cry, and it would sound just like an infant. Not, eight months later, he laughs, though it isn't that often, and it sounds like an actual person laughing. it is hilarious. He sings, plays peek=a=boo, and gives kisses.

I have a Conure as well as an Eastern Rosella, 2 Lutino Cockatiels and 3 Budgies and I'm convinced, the Conure is part monkey. You have to own one to understand that statement.

Why are there people who think feeding Conures coffee and junk food is a good idea. They are very fragile animals and get sick easily. A nut as a treat is just as exciting to them as a cheeto,and it wont kill them.

People need to understand the responsibilities of owning a bird.
I am a bird owner and lover and its not fair to them, they don't know this food is horrible for them.

Mine I've had for awhile. I got her from my grandmother who could not play with her. She plucked her feathers and is mean to others ecept me. I'm tryin to teach her to talk and to do tricks and advise.

I have a jenday conure, he is 13 years old and I have had him since I was 12 years old. I am now 25 and he is like my child, so all of my motherly attention goes to him and although he is mostly in love with my long time boy friend, when he is not feeling well he wants me. (Or when I am upset he sits on my shoulder and if I am crying he gets puffy and makes sweet tweets all in an effort to make me feel better). I have realized over the years that these are very smart birdies. I also have noticed that his wing/back feathers have become darker and almost black (not all of them) this has caused me to become worried, especially when my vet told me she did not know why and had no answer for me. And it is difficult, I know these animals live 20-30 years, but no one seems to know the biology of older birds...

I found a Nanday in Boynton Beach, Florida earlier this year, we call it Jillian. It's been with me about 4 months and I am happy to say I think it finally gets it that I'm not out to hurt it. It learned tricks in a matter of minutes and finally stepped off its cage and onto my hand without freaking out! This is a great bird, and the more I learn about it, the more I come to appreciate how someone must really miss it. Talks too! Often. As much as it is challenging to own one now, I feel it is quite a (free) gift. Lots more to learn.
