I have a Nanday Conure called Toby. I got him from an old lady who didnt want to give him away but had to because she couldnt let him out of his cage because of her dog. he is always coming out of his cage nowadays and he loves to go outside and sit with me in my aviary.

Crackers is almost 6 months old. I have had him/her for about 3 months and am crazy about this silly bird. They are so affectionate and playful. I am wondering if I should be expecting this bird to talk. I will still love my Crackers regardless, but was just curious. This is the best pet I have ever had.

My 6 month old Green-cheek, Maui was so playful. He loved to be cuddled and be fed apples. Although green-cheeks are quieter than most conure breeds, they do have a tendency to be nippy. You can remedy this by gently grabbing the sides of their beak and saying "NO BITE" in a firm voice. In order for this to work you must be consistent and never let them get away with it. I only had my presious Maui for about 8 weeks he was the best little friend I could ask for. Sadly, Maui was killed by our cat when he escaped from his cage to visit me in the next room. Even though I only spent a fraction of what his life could have been I enjoyed his comapany and his memory will live on forever.

He might be a she yet, but Bobby, my young Green Cheeked conure, is curious and intelligent. I do not want his curiosity to kill him. I lost my last 2 birds, cockatiels, to escape. Once he gets outside, it will only mean freedom. Watch doors, incoming visitors, open windows. It takes a lot of luck to get one back.
To the person with the water-shy bird: your bird is now afraid of the spray. Let him become curious on his own. If the cage is left in a quiet warm place, he will eventually take his own bath. You may have to do this for several days, especially in the case of your bird. That means do not disturb. They are smart enough to know when they need one.
These birds learn readily if they are not coerced. The best way is to incorporate their natural behaviors and follow their leads. Listen to your bird! Good luck!

I just love my little white eyed conure. His name is Picaro and he has us all wrapped around his little foot.

my husband and I bought a mitred a few months ago. He is now about a year old. He talks alot. He says what ya doin, cmere, learning to say peekaboo, and goodboy. He has attempted those a few times. He is a very busy bird and loves attention. He is very very noisy. He is very sweet and loves to wrestle.

I have 11 month green cheek, Sweety. She is the sweetest bird I have met! Just she never listens to me, for she loves to nibble on my face. Sometimes, she poofs her head up and tries to bite anything in sight, they have extraordianry personalities. I love it when she falls asleep in my hands. Some advice for new owners are train them from the very moment they are able to learn. Have fun!

I have a GCC named Oz that I have had for six months now. He is about 10 months old. I have tried to teach him to talk but with no luck, but he does mimic sounds. He often lays down flat or on his side to be petted, and can do somersaults and head stands up against a pillow! He enjoys spending time with me the most, but also likes his little playmates, my pet parakeets, Yawn and Stretch. They play together, eat together, and bathe together. Occasionally, Oz is a bit nippy-when it comes to having to go back in his cage, at bed time, or when I head out to work. I have found Oz to be a great companion and a very loving pet.
