I have 3 parrots I still don't know what kind they are
At the property of my cousin a tree fell down and there was a bunch of them, they are still babies because they have trouble eating by themselves we have been hand feeding them but we dont know what kind are they, would appreciate any info from you guys, thank you. We have them outside the cage they hardly can fly and are very docile, we love them. We tried to post the picture but for some reason its not showing I have them on my albums

NOPE!

It appears to me that you just got incredibly lucky, my friend. They recently discovered a flock of the previously thought to be extinct Carolina Parakeets living in Honduras...

GUESS WHAT THOSE TWO LITTLE BUGGERS APPEAR TO BE...

Rare Baby Carolina Parakeets!!! THESE BIRDS WERE THOUGHT TO HAVE GONE EXTINCT AROUND THE TURN OF THE LAST CENTURY. BUT IT APPEARS A FEW OF THEM MIGRATED SOUTH AND SURVIVED. ALL THE NORTH AMERICAN BIRDS WERE KILLED OFF.

Carolina parakeet - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This is the carolina parakeet they found in Honduras. Look familiar?

Here is the article about them:

HOW COOL IS THAT?!

Okay, that will teach me not to look at posting dates. The photo was a photoshopped Jenday conure. It was an April fools joke.

So we are right back to I don't know.

They certainly have little conure faces.

What's throwing me off are the yellow heads and chest. Unless those are baby colors that change at maturity... all the native conures I'm aware of are green.

But then, I honestly bit on the carolina parakeet announcement... so, what do I know?!

Mark, don't be so quick to discharge your (most awesome) suggestion. I've been hacking away at my keyboard, trying to find out more info about the Carolina Parakeets, too...... IMHO it truly could be them.

No, those are just babies. :)

You can stop Hacking Cornell University admitted it was a hoax that someone perpetrated using their servers... people bought it, including me.

What is throwing me off are the yellow heads. Do half moon conures start off with yellow heads that turn green? If so, you probably guessed right.

I agree 100% . I did read the posting about April fool on one of the sites but not sure :( . If the poster was trying to pull a April fool he is a little early 36 days :confused:

Ok, I'll stop hacking away (for now). :eek:

I've been looking for photos of young Petz/Half Moon Conures, and none of the pics I've seen the chicks have such yellow heads. :confused:

Can we get a few more photos of the pretty babies, please?

Read the Sally Blanchard article again... the yellow headed birds in the box.

Bird Smugglers have been bleaching baby conure head feathers, and turning them yellow, and then smuggling them across the border into Texas, and passing them off as rare "Carolina Parakeets." The result were green birds with yellow and red heads.

Please tell me someone didn't do that to these little guys... (in which case I'd have to say half moon conure with a bleached head.)

Welcome to the forum! I just checked my brand new Parrots of the World, and there are NO such bird (or even closely similar) in there! You probably got some really rare conure - take very good care of them! Please post some more pictures!
Birdman666, you are right - they look SO MUCH like the extinct Carolina parakeet! I was praying God they'd be rediscovered! :) Wouldn't that be cool!!!
Anyway, my only guess is some hybrid bird - half-moon and golden, maybe? The thing is that most juvenile conures are green, but these are yellow! And most of them have dark beaks, but these have pink. Anyway, I'm so puzzled... Or could these NOT be conures??? Do they have long tails and slim body?
They look so cute and adorable! Please some more picks!

Here are the photos in the album. I agree, veimar, definitely conures - and GORGEOUS ones, too.

Nah, Mark, I honestly don't think anybody bleached them.

This is quite the mystery though! :32:
