James, I am so sorry to hear about your lost! Rest assure she wasn't just a silly little bird....she was your companion and friend. You will miss her but she is waiting for you at Rainbow Bridge. There you two will be together once again. Huge Birdie Hugs coming your way from all of us here.

I bought a GC Conure on 1-30-09 from a pet store and in her cage she was being such a clown. So as you might say, she won my heart. She was really timid at frist but once I had her wings clipped she warmed up to me quick. She loves to ride on my shoulder and on top of my head. She is only 7 months old and I named her Baby. I have never owned a conure before, but I am ready for the challenge.

After almost 9 months, I realized that my local pet store sold me a Jenday instead of a Sun. There does not seem to be any difference other than the coloring and I did not find out the difference until I was looking thru a pet products book and saw my bird in one of the photos. Conner (not very original) is the sweetest, noisiest, and most beautiful bird I have ever had. He lives in perfect harmony with my two cockatiels, one of which I have had for 15 years. They all love flying around the screened-in patio area for hours at a time. I think this space and the comments of the other bird lovers is great for all of us. Thanks, Chip

When I was about 12 my parents adopted a red-masked conure for me. We don't know how old he is and when we got him he didn't have a name so we named him Sole(so-LAY). We were told his previous owner never took good care of him and often ignored him and would sometimes treat him badly. When he came he came in this ugly, old, dirty cage along with a parakeet, which we also adopted. We all thought that given the kind of conditions he was living in before he'd be a little mean and would attack us anytime we got near. However, the moment my brother brought him in he started to show off by hanging upside down in his cage, hanging by his beak and even trying to imitate me and when I opened his cage he immediately flew out to greet me by nuzzling my cheek.
I've now had Sole for four, nearly five, years. He is a tremendous joy in our family and often is referred to by my mother as a mama's boy because he is very attached to me as I am to him. He is very intelligent and is able to say many things however he prefers not to. Sole enjoys singing along to Mariah Carey, playing in water and even likes to look at books(and then chew on them). He also gets along very well with our other pet birds and even lets them boss him around even though they're all much smaller than he is. (: He is also very affectionate and loves to give and receive kisses. :) He has such a great personality and I'm so glad I have him. :)

Our Jenday, Gizzy, got out late one afternoon and headed for the sunset. We do not clip her wings. I looked until it got dark and then just came home. I got up the next morning and drove around the neighborhood, just listening. She is very loud and if she squawked, I would hear her. Sure enough, I heard her! She was up in a globe willow that looked just like the one in my back yard. The owners of the house did not speak English, but let me crawl out onto their garage roof. Gizzy was very happy to see me and was singing and whistling but was afraid to let go of the tree branch to fly to me. My next door neighbor was out looking too and stopped. She handed me a branch, which I whacked the limb Gizzy was on. Off she flew! "Where's she headed?" I yelled to my neighbor. She yelled back," Straight to you!". And here comes Gizzy, wings out-stretched, feet full forward, Wham onto my chest and straight down my shirt, singing and whistling. She loves to be inside one of our shirts. We have "bird clothes" so she can snuggle and coo. Yes, she's spoiled rotten!

A friend recently gave my wife the present of a young but very beautiful Sun Conure, we named him Popeye, my first thoughts were, "gee, that's all we need..a parrot to look after'....he's 6 months old now and I wouldn't part with him for all the tea in China, he's an amazing character. friendly, sociable..heck he evens sleeps with my wife, fights with my toes on the bed in the morning and is just a huge character, he's also a guard-parrot with a built in clock...he knows my wife gets home at 4pm every day...and shouts loudly for her just as she's ready to come thru' the door.

He isn't talking much yet...well in his own language he is...but we're persisting with him.

Being a dog man...I never thought I'd love a parrot so much

I purchased two newly weened sunnys and they are wonderful. I could not choose between the two. Since they were the only ones left I got them both. They are really playful and if one makes a particular sound the other is sure to follow. They are extremely affectionate toward me and each other but at times there seems to be a bit of jealousy when one is getting more attention over the other but it is quickly dispelled. They will tumble over the top of one another when I am playing with them on the floor or bed and they will scratch and pick at one anothers feathers so gently that it makes them puff up. They have included me in this ritual. They pick through my hair as if it were feathers. They will roll over on their backs and allow me to stroke them with a finger during all of this. I really enjoy their company and it can be a really good stress reliever.

I just added (one day) a new family member, Sweet Pea (Cinnamon GC) to our extended family of two cocaktiels (Sunny (M) & Puffy (F) and a Green Cheek Conure (Coconut - F) and praying that Sweet Pea gets along w/the other family members, especially Coconut. So far they have been very aggressive towards one another during play time which I am montioring closely. They are a great joy. Hopefully, we can all get along?
