New Conure Owner, actually new bird of any kind owner

Sponsored Links
Hello ...

My wife and I have been "almost" bird owners for more than three decades. Just never seemed that it would work in our household; however, after four years of retirement, we now find that owning a couple birds is a great choice.

We did a lot of studying, looking, and handling of birds over the last few months. I've read a couple books and we've both spent lots of time doing our homework on the 'net. We narrowed our choices to the Conure (green cheek) or the Cockatiel. In the end, the personalities of the Conure simply won the day for the breed.

Last week we picked up a Rose Crown and a Cinnamon Conure. Now the adventure begins, and so far it is going pretty well. Both birds are adjusting, though very differently. My wife's (The Rose Crown) is a bigger personality, so far, and seems to be adjusting to her much faster. Mine, a small Cinnamon, is improving almost daily on his trust and acceptance of me.

I look forward to learning much more about our new pets while in this forum. Thanks for reading, and I look forward to meeting fellow owners.

Welcome! Lots of bird-lovers here to help you out. While you're having a look around, you can take any issue or topic which interests you, use the Search Tab and then read about it. It's a really good engine. And as for the peeps here, we're fabbbbbulous!
As for me, I'm the poster-girl for ridiculous surrender to an ill-tempered, abusive conure, so take all my future posts with the appropriate (20-30) grains of salt!
I'm glad you found us.
