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!

I have had my white eyed conure, Dragon for 13 years. It is a joy to be his pet. Unfortunately, only myself and one other person can touch him without getting a nip, but we're working on that. I think white eyed conures are the best. He is such a big part of my life and I hope he's around for a very long time.

Hi, I own a 16 month old green cheek conure unsexed named MoJo. I love my green cheek conure. she (yes i'm calling her a she) is so sweet and loving towards me. I got MoJo from a breeder at the age of 4 weeks and hand fed her myself. I don't recommend anyone to do it unless they have experience in hand rasing. They make sweet pets, but be warned green cheek conures can be very jealous birds. I love my MoJo but i have to watch her very carefully. One time i walked out of the room just to get a drink, When i returned i found MoJo had gotten into my budgies cage and had bitten off one of my budgies toes. The budgie survived. Never ever leave your bird unsupervised, not even for a minute. I'm never going to make that mistake again. They require alot of attention from there owners. if you work during the day maybe get it a mate of the opposite sex, Or 2 hens.

Hi, I own a 13 month old DNA sexed male sun conure named Besley. Besley loves to play games, he hands me his foot for me to shake. Besley can laugh and he can say WHAT. I got Besley when he was 3 months old. All i can say is i love him very much but he can be very noisy and annoying but i wouldn't trade him for the world. Word of warning to people, please do your research before buying these wonderful birds. They might be pretty, but make sure your neigbours and family agree to the noise. I have seen too many people selling there sun conures or giving them to rescues because of their noise level.

My Nanday Conure, Karly, and I had a rough start. He was always biting me. I would get so frustrated that I would just give him a time out. I know that yelling, even if I am in pain, makes it worse. I tried every thing. So, I showered him with love and soft baby talk. Well, that was it. He loves to be cooded and talked to like the "beautiful baby" he is and when I treat him so swell, I receive the same treatment in return. They have a gentle side to them in which they love to be treated like a baby. Try it and you will be rewarded.
