conure adoption

    (UK) cuddly conure needing forever home

    I think this might be a predominately American forum but I thought it worth a go. This is a heart breaking situation because my 4 yr old sweet girl (not dna tested) has no behavioural problems, but I have developed a serious allergy and no measures have made it liveable for me. It’s taking a...

    What’s it like for a conure to be rehomed?

    My question is for those who have adopted adult conures from happy homes: what is rehoming like for them? Do they grieve terribly for their previous owners? Or are they more ‘happy go lucky’? Am I applying human emotions onto this situation? *this is my first post, I hope I’ve done it right* I...

    Multiple Conure help

    I have a GCC at home and I've been thinking about getting another GCC as a companion. Today I went into my local pet shop and saw 2 GCCs which appeared to be bonded because they were in "separate" cages but sitting next to each other. I say "separate" because there's only a glass divider...

    Adopted the lovely miss Coco!!!

    Hello everyone! its my first time posting here! after a TON of research and much waiting I've finally adopted my first green cheek conure! The previous owner unfortunetly could no longer give her the time she needed, but I could tell she was really heartbroken to give her up and that coco was...

    Pictures Happy fluff?

    I got Niko last Saturday, and hes really sweet when I hold him. But, it has to be his idea to get on me. At the store, he was pretty good at step up, but at home he tends to sit fluffed up on his cage and coo at me. (Not sure if coo is the right word, but this is my first bird) However, if I try...

    Hi Everybody

    Hi!! I'm a minor from Ohio and have a major love for birds!! I've wanted a sun or jenday conure for 3 years now and I'm finally getting one! So I thought I'd join here to share my first time experience with a conure and have somewhere to ask questions if I need too

    Conure behavior problems and bonding help?

    So about a week ago I got an 8 year old cinnamon green cheek conure (from a rescue) who is wonderfully sweet, however I am a new parrot owner and was unprepared for some of the behavior problems she has (they didn't really show up in a shelter environment). She refuses to step up quite often...

    Conures with the biggest personality

    So I've been on AA all day thinking a cockatoo was what I wanted, i'd done the research thinking- "yeah they are loud, how bad can it be? Yeah they are messy, I can clean it. Yeah they can easily slip into a depression for being left alone for more than and hour or 2, but i'm homeschooled so I...

    Possibly Bringing A Sun Conure Home

    I know I've posted here before about wanting a conure, and how I was doing research on how to properly care for them and I had shown interest in GCC, but I've just come across a chance to adopt a sun conure in need of a loving home. I know that sun conures are louder, and I was wondering if...
