I have a 2 year old Nanday Conure, the name we have chosen is rascal.... and boy does he live up to his name!!! These birds can be wonderful companions!!! Mine just loves to cuddle with anyone who will hold a finger out to him! Recently we recieved another bird, a blue fronted amazon, and he is very talkative. Low and behold after spending a few weeks together (in seperate cages of course...) I just about had a heart attack when my little nanday said "comere"!!! he actually talked!!! a few days later as I reached to answer the phone, I was surprised by the lil sound behind me that said "Hello"!!!! This species of bird is widely accepted as a non talkative bird, capable of imitating simple sounds at best!! Guess I have an exception! Anyways, on occassion he does scream but its usually only for 10-20 seconds at a time, and not that often... We absolutely love him to death!!! He is very inquisitive and tends to explore alot around the house.. I think he has found every lil cubby hole we have lol!!! anyways, read up on these birds before you buy them as they take alot of love and attention to have a well mannered bird... sadly the blue fronted amazon we received came from an owner who could not provide the love and attention, and couldnt take anymore of the Biting... so looked to get rid of it... Im proud to say that he has shaped up nicely with a little TLC!!!
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.
i have 13 birds and the latest addition is my nanday! she can be loud! even louder than my sun conur which i never thought possible. the first day i came home from work after getting her....i almost dropped everything at the door and ran! i was not prepared for that noise...but now its a week later and still no complaints from my neighbor, im in a duplex so i think he must be deaf or extremely understanding. she has definatly choosen me as her owner and i cant wait for the years to come!
My Girlfirend works at a High School, and she and a couple of co-workers found this cute bird. Well low and behold it is a younge nanday conure. Everyone decided that she should take the bird home since we have a Double yellow headed amazon named Apollo, and a senigal parrot named Kiji. Well, our newest addition is very social, and loves to visit and be near people. I am not a bird fan, due to being attacked when I was a child. Well let me just say, I now have a conure typing on the keyboard with me. I am very nervous of it taking a chunk out of me, but I am dealing with that. I have named it JesterBird.. this way gender could never be an issue.
I recently recieved a Nanday Conure from a friend who had the bird left at her home by a person who never came to claim it. The bird was in bad shape and was very unhappy. I put him in a larger cage and returned him to a proper diet, and he is a wonderful bird all his feathers grew back and he gets along great with my African grey. They are a little loud at times, but make up for it with love.
One day my mom and myself were walking out of petsmart. A lady was walking to the store with a nanday and i told her what a beautiful bird. The woman asked me if i wanted her. She said the birds name was 2k i said sure. well to make a long story short, 2k is very happy she gets to come out of her cage when she is ready the first day she was very nippy but now she is fine.She gets along with my children and myself. She a pleasure to have with our family and she rules the roost

I have more of a question than a comment. Two years ago my son almost died on us and had to have a blood transfusion, Well anyway every since then my nanday attacks him when ever he sees him and i can't seem to get him to stop, can you tell me why he is doing this and maybe how i can stop it, It has been two years and i love my bird very much but i have to protect my son.
After my dad passed, i was given one of his birds hes a nanday conure. Were told that he is near 40years old but a pet store worker told me that there average life span is 20years.can somone tell what it isplease? He is very funny he loves to dance to the music and loves to play but he wont let me touch him, only my son can touch and hold him.He is a joy!
I have the same bird, i got him from my sister, she couldn't take his screeming any more, and i felt sorry for him. No he lives with me and like to play a lot takes a shower with me every morning. His cages is always open so he flyes everywere in the house, and loves it, dosen't screm that much. I am very happy with him. Needs a lot of attention. Read a lot about those birds before buying!!!
