All about Mango
by: Danielle J

Hi everyone, I just wanted to tell everyone about my conure Mango. Mango is a yellow sided green cheek conure. He is so spoiled rotten. He loves to cuddle and give kisses. He is very playful and if I leave him in a room by himself he will come find me. He is just now 2 months old. I couldn't believe how quickly he became so spoiled. He is so hilarious, he thinks he is a rabbit. What I mean by that is he doesn't walk like a normal bird he hops, yes "HOPS!" He loves to lay on his back in my hand and let me rub him until he falls asleep. Anyone looking to bring one of these little darlins into their home needs to have plenty of time and love to give. They require alot of attention as does any parrot. It is my personal opinion from my experiences that if you spoil them and treat them like members of the family you will have a friend for life. I have also found that it is best to keep them well socialized where they are not so nippy with friends and family. But please use caution and do not let anyone sick around your parrot. And always make everyone wash their hands before touching them. They are like children and easily pick up germs. Something else i learned to having a sweet bird is if possible do not keep them locked in their cage, my birds hate that. Think about it if you were locked in a cage all day wouldn't you be mean and noisey, screaming for someone to let you out and stretch your wings. Treat them like the precious babies they are. If you get a conure, I wish you the best of luck. I hope you love yours as much as I love my parrots.

Nippy Conure
by: MaMaChris

I'm a Mom of 2 teenage girls & our (my)lovable Sun Conure "Toucan Sam" (9 months old). When Sammy gets nippy it usually means he's either hungry or has to poop. When he bites we perch him and tell him to "Go Poopy" & that's how we potty trained him. So his biting is his way of communicating to us his wishes.

One legged conure
by: Nana

I got a yellow sided conure just one week ago. One of his legs is crippled. He can use it for holding on to the bars in the cage sometimes, but for the most part, it is a little challenging for him to get around. He was hand raised. I try to improvise in his cage, making it easier for him. I don't know why, but sometimes he gets nippy, sometimes pretty hard, and then again, sometimes he is the most loveable bird you would ever want. I wondered if anyone out there could tell me how to break him of his really hard nipping. He comes to me, sits with me, rubs his head on my hand, and lets me feed him too. Am I doing something wrong?
