I just recently got a bird named Pokey. He is 13 yrs old, well I assume he is he! "Blue Crown Conure mixed Red shouldered Mini Macaw". He is the most loveable little thing. He took to me right from the start, the previous owners really didn't think he would. He calls me mama and I call him baby. he likes the name baby, he never really responds to Pokey unless he is in trouble! He also likes to say NO! His new Words are "Wesley (my son's name), come here, sit, Taz (my little dogs name), love you, good bye, roll over". He is quit the character. Pokey has been a blessing to our family. Can't imagine life without our little bird, for me when my days are stressed Pokey makes me laugh! That is the best thing ever. Thank god for little birds like Pokey and the many other birds out there!

I had a half moon conure named Chip he was the cutest thing ever. He would squeeze through my door in the morning just to get next to my face and wake me up. He absolutely loved hot cheetohs and coffee. He was extremely protective of me and would fly and bite anyone's face who he didn't want near me. The only girl he liked was me. He would sound like a microwave and loved to pretend he was a zipper. We let him fly freely around the house and he was seriously part of the family. Everyone was devestated on 8-21-07 when he was killed by a hawk who pulled half his wing through his cage while he was outside and killed him. This bird and my budggie were the only birds I have ever had that got away outside and always flew back to me. I will definitely miss him.

    Did the hawk attack Chip while Chip was in his cage or house. I was going
    to take my conure out on the porch in a small cage but now fear predators.
    Will you explain better how Chip was hurt. I do not want this to happen if I
    can avoid it.

My blue crowned conure, Okka, is the best talker of all my parrots! He says over a dozen phrases and many more words that he seems to use often in appropriate moments like he understands. If I call "Okka!" he'll respond usually with a "What? Okka Out?!" And When I let him out of his cage I get an "Awwwwww. Okka Looooove You." He sings and dances and loves cuddling. I was always hooked on african grays for intelligence but these birds are just as clever and much cheaper. I strongly suggest researching them if you are looking for a smart bird.

I just recently purchased my Dusky Conure...Connie short for Conrad.
I love him to bits. He is such a joy, and makes my day brighter and more enjoyable. He is only 2 months old, but already has an outstanding personality. He loves to play and sing along with me. Connie loves to eat and play with puzzle toys. No words yet but he has started mimicing kissing sounds and Beeps. I can't imagine not having Connie now. I hope to have him forever :D

we have a 6month old white eyed conure named "curly" and he is very sweet. He loves everyone in the family but likes especially to be with his "mom" and "dad". He loves to take baths, loves to take rides on our shoulder and basically loves life.

I have a peach fronted Conure, what a wonderful bird. We did a lot of research, but honestly, only because my bird choose me. I never thought of owning a bird. I often considered falconry, but never a small parrot. Take your time and research, research, research. You will have a great pet and friend for a long time if you care for your bird. DO NOT do impulse shopping because it is cute. Too often I have seen people selling their conures.
For those of you doing your research, whilst she can squawk as all conures do, it really is not as loud as a Sun Conure. She is only 6 months old and the vet said she would get even more beautiful and brilliant. I can't imagine her any prettier.
We had her sexed with the toe nail blood test. Your breeder or pet store should inform you to only use a vet that is Avian certified.
As with all pets, don't force them. Take your time. My bird has a wonderful vocabulary. She can give kisses and sounds like a 'smooch' box. She says 'Take a bath?' at our shower time, 'I love you', and Pretty Bird to name a few.

I have a patty named Ozzy. I have had her for about 6 yrs now and we are so attached to each other. She does get very noisy with what I call her singing. I was told she was a male when i got her but 2 yrs ago he laid eggs HAHA! She is outside her cage full time. She sleeps in her blankie. She burrows under it. it is the cutest thing. She prefers to walk instead of fly and follows me everywhere I go. She is also a "closet" talker. But she does like to laugh whenever she hears me laughing. she sounds so evil lol. She loves taking baths and splashing water everywhere. Most of the time she goes in the shower with me and plays in the water. She's not so friendly with the rest of my family but she tolerates them. She has never once bitten me. And she knows better than to bite my kids. A very intelligent bird, and she can follow commands and i swear she understands me when i am talking to her or lecturing her about something lol. Ozzy has been loose flying outside. She will ignore me calling her for a little bit but she always comes back and lands on me. I don't recommend doing that unless your patty is extremely attached to you. But she loves it soaring and screaming :)

I had purchased a half moon conure a month ago. He was 4 months old. He was slow at weening, so I wasn't able to bring him home until just yesterday. I took him to the vet for a check-up, as required by the store's health guarantee.

Bloodwork was part of the routine check-up. He was taken to a back room. When he came out he didn't look right. He was very wobbly. The vet took him in the back again. When he came out he seemed better. 3 hours later he died in my hand at home.

I have been searching for answers and I think the same thing happened that happened to Alvaro Gonzalez in his post on 7/10/07.

Everybody please be aware of this. We found out the hard way.

    This is terrible. I wonder what the vet did. I am now afraid to take
    my conure to the vet.

Summer and our third year with Coo, and learning about Hormonal Rage. I got my nose well attacked today. A new cage in the living room and Coo is getting territorial about it. I uncovered the cage and let him out early this morning, MISTAKE. Should stick with a late morning schedule and keep the cage covered 12 hours until the end of July when the hormones slow down and the biting stops. Cuddly bird but always gets mean in the summer! Love my Nanday, hate mating season.

I love my Patti. We have been through thick and thin for the last 19 years! She has traveled all places with me, including camping. And I say she, after 19 years she laid an egg tonight!
