I have had my peach fronted conure ,Jasper, for 7 years now. He can only say a few words but will only learn a word if it means something. To be picked up he says "up, up?" to get attention and call you over he says "Hello!" When he nips me he says "Ow". He can mimic my laugh quite well. He loves showering in the stink, and being carried around. I highly recommend this breed, they are a joy!

I just got my Halfmoon Conure....today as a matter of fact! It's 13 weeks old, and has done nothing all evening but sit on the upper perch in it's brand new cage and stare at me, in between short little naps. This is my third Halfmoon over a span of 30 years, and I look forward to many years of joy with the newest member of my family! I established a great deal of trust and closeness with my previous birds; I hope to accomplish the same with "Bodhi".

We have a dusky conure, Poot. He is a bundle of energy. He loves to snuggle under shirts for naps. He also loves to chase the cats off the furniture (under supervision of course). Pretty much, Poot feels that he owns the whole house and we are his minions.

I am babysitting my sister and bro in law's conure "Dipsy" for 4 months while they are in Iraq. I have to say, he is an absolute joy! He says about 4 words, but we are teaching him another one as a surprise. Hee Hee. He also LOVES car rides! Wonderful, and Dipsy is quiet and only "poops" (one of his words) in a designated area of his cage. I would like to get one, but I am afraid it would not be as well behaved as Dipster.

My GCC is 9 months old and he is so clever and cheeky it's not funny. He says HI and Hello and his new word is 'scratch' when you scratch under his wings. He showers with us, he attacks us, he's VERY jealous, can be moody, attacks fingers and toes when feeling playful (a little too hard) he plays with a ball with a bell in it, he has many whistles, he snuggles up behind my hair and sleeps. He is the most playful beautiful parrot ever. He rolls down our tummy's and he also LAUGHS when we laugh. He LOVES champagne and my husband has a major sweet tooth which can not escape Bubba who flies or will do anything to get to my husband when he is eating. It's so much worse than a dog because bubba sits right by my hubby's mouth to get fed and will not leave until it's all finished.
These are the most fantastic birds ever. I find Bubba has taken a few feathers out probably due to boredom during the day as we all work as soon as we are home he's with us until it's bed time. I mean we take him grocery shopping and to soccer and visiting people that do not have pets but it's just when we are at work that he goes insane. (I try leave the radio on too).
Bubba is SO intelligent (I think they all are). He doesn't really eat anything other than his seed unless it's from our mouth's not sure if this is norm.
Also he showers with us ALL the time, LOVES it, he also in summer if I'm cleaning and leave an empty glass of water on the bench or have a glass of water and him with me he'll DIVE in it to bath, or try dive in the sink even if it's hot bubbly water to bath, he's obsessed by it.
AND car sickness, he gets REALLY car sick sometimes if it's long periods.

I have a 1 year old half moon conure. He is so sweet yet can be very vocal! He loves to take baths and eat people food. His favorite thing is to ride around on my shoulder.

Great to see others enjoying the company of their BCC. We have Paco, he is approx 22-23 years old and is quite the grumpy old man (we think). Oddly enough he has Peaches, a Salmon-Crested Cockatoo (19 years old,) as a cage-mate. They have lived together for 19 years, mainly harmoniously, but we have had to bring in the occasional counselor for disputes. We did not discover that Peaches is a female until about 4 years ago when we found a large egg in the cage(definitely not from Paco). So now, once a year, Paco has to move out to an apartement on the other side of town (house) while Peaches cools down. On cooler evenings Paco is taken completely under Peaches wing, she folds her head under her wing where Paco is so all one can see is a large plump white mass with two large feet and two small feet sticking out. This is proof that we can all get along and live among one another no matter how noisy, messy or different we might me.

I have a 3-year-old peach-fronted conure named Sweetie. She is my first parrot, and I recommend them highly. I can leave mine out of her cage all day when I'm at home and she doesn't fly about, she doesn't poop on people, when she does poop it isn't projectile poop, doesn't demand a lot of attention, she play independently, she's a good talker, loads of fun, good company, she's simply the best! My nephew also has a peach-fronted conure. The difference in their personalities is amazing. His doesn't like to play with toys, hardly talks, but entertains himself watching and listening to the kids playing and other goings-on in the home. They both have a lot of love to give, to receive, and share. They are simply peachy!

Take good care of your parrot. Learn all you can. The Internet is a good resource as well as Bird Talk magazine. Parrots make wonderful pets. Find one that's right for YOU. Research first!
