I purchased a Half Moon Conure abou 5 Years ago from a local pet store that specializes in Birds. He was hand raised and hand weaned. We brought PACO home and It was love at first bite. Paco is very active but seems to get real cranky during periods of high humidity. Paco screams my name when she wants attention or to play. She loves peanuts and french fries, and coke a cola is also a favorite of paco's. Also has a big liking for salt. This Bird can make life miserable if she wants too or is ignored. Very smart, likes to bite people and then laugh like a person, it is too funny.

I purchased Payno (short for jalapeno) seven months ago when he was about ten weeks old near where I live in central Mexico. Although parent raised, within a week he readily and eagerly stepped up and enjoyed being handled, even being stroked on his back. He seems to take pleasure in outscreaming my cockatiel, four parakeets, and cardinal. He is a heart stealing protective delight who only shows his sweet and loving side to me. While I excercise in the morning he takes tremendous joy in flying back and forth from his cage to his playground about 12 feet away and then repeatedly bowing to my applause. His favorite activity seems to be climbing onto my wide brimmed sombrero and inverting himself while he beaks my ears, nose, lips, and back. Payno is everything - playful, loving, resourceful, independent - one could want from a companion bird.

I've lived with my conure friend 'Cricket' for over 15 years now. What an affectionate little bundle of quirks, squawks, chirps,shrieks and craziness he is! He's out the moment I get home until I leave wor work the next day, and then he voluntarily goes back into his cage. At night he sleeps in the bureau. He's taken over two drawers there.
One has his chew toys and treats in it, the other is where he sleeps. He's my best friend.

I have Jenday. I think it is a male but not sure. About a month ago the bird went on my friends shoulder and my friend was going out. He did not know the bird was on his shoulder. He started to open the door to go out, not realizing the bird was on him. The bird got scared and, guess what?, the bird flew away. I started to cry. I went outside and called the bird. I went back and forth for abut 4 hours calling the birds name, crying. My girfriend was there and we even put the birds picture on the internet, a sight for lost animals. My friend's boyfriend went in his car looking and my girlfriend help me look for the bird. After 3 1/2 half hours my girfriend said the bird could be anywhere by now. When we went around the corner I heard birds so I called my birds name. No bird, so we went in the house, but something told me to go out again. I went out by myself around the corner where I had heard the birds and called the birds name. No bird, so as I was crossing the street to a corner house like mine I again called the the birds name, by the way the bird is jaber, and all of a sudden I see a bird flying. The bird went to the corner house and was just sitting on the grass. I called my friend who was in my house. She came running but the gate was locked and no one was home. So she went to get the cage and put the cage in the gate and thought the bird would fly in it, but it did not. The bird was scared, so she told me to keep talking to the bird. I told her I had a ladder in the house so she went and got it and climb in the gate with a towel and the cage. The bird flew in the cage. The marvel of the story is that Jenday's are such loving birds. Thanks to my friend for climbing in the gate. The bird is loving because it heard my voice and flew over to the corner house because he thought it was mine. I am the happiest person now that I got my bird back. That's my baby, I do not have kids.

My African Grey is 7 years old and to me he is gifted. GR (my African Grey) can be seen on UTube on my channel Amymint5.
He is seen in various videos demonstrating things that he can do. He knows each and every member and knows each and everyone's actions. For example he acted as an alarm for the baby, when we did not have a gate on the stairs. Each time the baby tried to climb the stairs GR would shout "No", warning us. Also the baby would stop there and listen to the Parrot and not go any further! Each time the baby comes around, GR has a special whistle, and he normally only use this special whistle to call the baby. Everytime we walk back to the Parrot the baby laughs, then we slowly walk away and GR Whistle again to call us. GR and the baby enjoy this little game. Once GR was seen communicating with the dog. GR was watching Spike our dog, who was barking quite alot. GR sat watching him
than calmly said, "Shut up Spike, Be quite"! GR is truely gifted and very special.

Hello all! Bought Louie from a loving breeder at 5 weeks old. He's now 10 weeks and says "WHAAAT?" fairly well. Breeder said conures need lots of toys and things to keep them busy and quiet. She was right. I have absolute confidence that much attention/devotion will bring out wonderful things from (Screwy) Louie. He's very friendly, funny, and sociable, can give kisses upon request, and loves being petted/stroked. After studying up on conures, I think the only reason most people's Suns don't speak much is lack of devotion, and if they squawk alot, it's 'cause the owner just hasn't given them enough things to occupy their minds with. They are creatures of mimicry, and are limited only by the patience, knowledge, and skill of their owners. Ounce for ounce, I honestly think Louie has more brains than many people (LOL). Never give up the training. The returned love is well worth it!

I bought my Chucky a week and a half ago now, I was really lucky to get him at a third of the cost! He's 11 weeks old and the biggest sook I have ever met....he is scared of the dark, and just wants to sleep with me all the time. He is always out of the cage when I am home, and when he is in the cage, he continuously rolls around on his back and makes noises like a duck until I let him out! He loves to be touched, and never bites. The only problem that I have is that he is jealous of everything I touch that isn't him. He has already attempted to pull the keys off my computer keyboard! So no more internet when he is out! Best money I have ever spent! Worth every cent, he has already paid his way in smiles!

I visit a nearby pet shop each week to see the new stock of parrots they get and from the moment I saw their little GCC I was attached! Unfortunately we are immigrating soon so I can't buy him, but we will definitely get a conure as soon as possible!
