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.

I think that a sun conure can be a big responsibility, but they're fun. I have 1, it's a boy named katy and it's also great for children above 10 years of age.

I just rescued a Nanday Conure and a Dusky Conure from the animal shelter along with his mate. I have no knowledge of their previous life. I was having a difficult time when he first arrived, his biting and screaming was horrendous. I am trying to win him over by hand feeding him, tonight 6/24/09 was the first time I actually had him perch on my hand and then on my shoulder. Once there he just made sounds and nibbled on my earrings. I have been feeding him treats such as fresh apples and he absolutely loves millet spray. I love to watch him and his mate interact. I was not informed of his name or if he even was given one. I named him Noah and he mimics one sound. He does screech every time anyone enters his space. I am hoping he will out grow that... please someone tell me he will. I am searching further information on their eating habits. Feel free to share any information. I really want to build a healthy relationship with them both.

My husband and I adopted a YSC from his aunt and uncle a little over a year ago. He is a real attention-beggar - he loves making chirping or "quacking" noises to get attention, and if we happen to leave his door open overnight, he will even waddle into our bedroom and onto our bed to wake us up! He's also got his nighttime habits - if the lights are turned off, he will either go to his little fur-house in his cage, or if he isn't around his cage, he will snuggle against one of us to nap. One of the funniest things about him, though, is his palate. He loves breading from fried chicken and vanilla ice cream, among other things. He gets EXTREMELY pushy if he sees any of these things being eaten in his presence. Oh, and he loves trying to sing to techno music.

I've just acquired one of these little guys, Kaboo. I didn't name him that, for some reason his previous owner didn't want him :( Don't know why, he's great. Full of fun and mischief, can be a bit noisy at times, like a spoilt kid who can't get his own way. He loves to be out of his cage, and has just learned that windows have glass in them, so there's no point in trying to fly through them! Don't worry he didn't get hurt. I actually got him to keep my elderly mother (who lives with me) company during the day, she's not as confident with him as I am, so he stays in the cage while I'm at work, but she does talk to him and strokes him while I'm away. I go home for lunch and let him out for a while, and the same when I get home in the evening, when he spends much more time out of the cage, in fact he now decides when he wants to go back in, and goes there himself. He loves his snuggle shelter, and one of his rope toys that originally had four blocks of wood strung onto it. Needless to say, these ended up shredded and deposited on the bottom of the cage, and he's broken two bells so far. He has a birdie bath in his cage but hasn't used it yet. Instead he tries to bathe in his water bowl, but it's a bit too small. He's also getting used to being sprayed with a mister. He snuggles up to his rope, his cloth and his shelter and makes happy little chirpy noises. He's not quite poop trained, but is learning, last night he did manage to go back to his cage, have a poop, and then came back out again, and yes he got lots of praise and a treat for that. So he's a happy little guy who loves being with his 'dad' when he gets home, and he sends his love to all you guys out there.

I have a gorgeous GCC that is now about just under a year old. He's become the whole families favourite pet. Whenever you walk past his cage he bobs up and down and tries desperately to try and fly to you even tho he can't lol. He dances to whistling and makes a variety of sounds, he loves it when we take him outside and he can listen to the bell birds in the wild. He has grown very attached to the women in our family and 'defends' them from anyone coming too close by, puffing up his chest. He loves to help out with household chores, e.g. sitting down your top with his head poking out while you are ironing or doing the dishes. He loves to have a snuggle with my mum and our cat when night time comes around, the cat is like his idol, he worships him! He makes little cooing noises when he's falling asleep and will gladly sleep on anyone. He enjoys sitting at the door of his cage and throwing corn out onto the floor and LOVEs eating twisties (well not so much eating but chewing into tiny crumbs) He's the light of our lives!

I have a 2year old sun conure called Chucky. He is ectremely cute. His wings are unclipped so he flies around in the house and can be quite a pest sometimes. He helps himself to food on the table and often fiddles with the buttons on the television set. He once managed to up the volume so loud that he and Koko, the african grey, got a big fright from the noise. He likes to sleep under my duaghter's clothes and get's annoyed when disturbed. My son oftens teases him, therefore he is the only one that gets bit. Anyone eating chips is his buddy because that's his ultimate favourite.

I have breed cochtail,parateek, love birds, afarcin gray finches, pigon, and just about any birds that I wanted to with sucess. My only problem is I am having trouble with my sun conures. Help! They will eat just about anything that I give them.What am I doing wrong and what can I do to help them? Do they need a cerntain vitiam or what?
