    Nanday is losing weight

    I need some help. I have a nanday I'm caring for and something is wrong. He was really skinny, so we fed him baby food 4-6 times a day, gave him millet, fruits and veggies and plain cheerios. He gained a lot of weight and then in the span of 3 days he lost 11 grams. Has anyone had this happen...

    I’ve been considering getting a Nanday for awhile, and recently went with my daughter to see a baby at a store about an hour away where I previously got my GCC. The owners keep their babies inaccessible to the public because of a few incidents where people have touched without asking, so I...

    Hello! New Nanday Conure!

    Hello everyone! My name is Ace and I just became the owner, rather unexpectedly, of an adorable Nanday Conure named Aldo. He will be 5 in August, and we're having a great time getting to know him! He is very friendly with me, but a little more hesitant with my husband. I think he will warm up...

    Nanday conure humping? Maybe?

    My Nanday Mort has started rubbing her bum on everything (humping, I guess). Her toys, perches, food bowl... Everything. Is this something I should stop, or be concerned with? I usually try to distract her, but she has started doing it more and more. Any advice is helpful, I'm a newbie! :green2:

    Nanday laying unfertilized eggs- need advice!

    So my nanday just laid an egg! No mate so I know it is unfertilized. I have been reading around online, but I'd just like advice on what to do. I've read to not take the egg away for a few weeks. And I read about using a cuttlebone to supplement calcium but she's afraid of them, what other...

    Aggressive Nanday

    About 2 months ago I rescued a Nanday from an abusive home. She is about 5 years old. When I got her she had an overgrown beak, long nails, and had plucked out all of her chest feathers. At first she was a little afraid but then became extremely aggressive. When you walk by her cage she lunges...

    Conure 'vibrating' beak against hand

    I'm new to having a bird and I had some trouble with Mort (Nanday conure) being aggressive at first, especially towards hands. He's warmed up to me and especially my dad and he has started rubbing his beak against our fingers. He will come up to our bent knuckle and rub the side of his beak...

    Transport Nanday Help!

    So I rescued a Nanday from a bad situation Monday a week ago and I'm wanting to take him to the vet. Problem is he isn't trained in the slightest and won't let me get him into the carrier.

    Question about covering my bird!

    So I just got a Nanday Conure today off craigslist and its my first time getting a bird that I didn't already have from little on. He is 18 months and my question is he doesn't get his cage covered at night, but I always covered my other birds in the past. So would it be okay if I covered him or...

    Stress Bars/Black Edges

    Well, I know I'm the millionth person to post about this, but I am just out of ideas to help Pepper with his feathers! He definitely has stress bars and I just don't know why. I can hear when he's grooming that he will get to the end of his feather and kind of chew it. I wonder if that has...

    nandays, blue quakers and me. (oh, and sweet Frick!)

    so the store I work at received 2 nandays 2 weeks ago. They're so fun! I've introduced fresh foods and one just scarfs it down. The other just sort of picks at the food. They'll both step up when politely pushed, meaning I put my hand in front of them in the cage and reward them when they...

    Even when he loves me he hates me!

    Hi in October of 2010 I adopted a Nanday Conure named Yago. At that point in time they guessed he was about 8 or so. Anyway Yago has had a couple of homes before mine and was probably abused. (He says 'stop screaming' to himself sometimes) He’s terrified of towels, the vacuum, and pretty much...
