suns and cherry heads and mitered are all clowns and very entertaining! Even though all conures don't talk , they make up for non vocalization with their dances and noises, clicks and coos!

New Nanday

This is my all time favorite kind of bird. I breed Nanday/Jenday hybrids.
I am sorry to hear about the broken wing. I have repaired broken wings of many birds that people bring to me, but I have years of experience in this. I would suggest that you make a visit to a vet to have this checked out.
Nandays tend to live anywhere from 15-30 years depending on how they are in captivity.
Most pet birds eat a seed diet, but I would suggest you doing some research on the internet as to how to introduce pellets, veggies, and fruit into its diet.These are also a necesity for a healthy bird. You can also find the foods to avoid that are toxic to your bird.
I wish you the best with your new feathered companion. Conures are wonderful little entertainers. By the way, what kind do you have?
