my new conure

Ok so since I have had skittles home he will not leave my shoulder at all he just sits there and cleans himself if I put him/her on my finger he/she climbs right to my shoulder talk about tame

i did a dna test that i will send away but skittles would just not bleed enough so i had to do another toe and that worked i put a towel over him/her so that i would not get a nasty bite

Aww, he/she is beautiful little GCC. :) I love those guys.

I can't bring myself to get mine DNA tested...but by their behaviors I've been able to determine who is a he and who is a she. (2 Green Cheek Conures and 1 Quaker)

Awwwwww.... Skittle is very photogenic. Does the DNA test tell you anything other than the sex of the bird?

Birds are so social... and when their owner leaves for vacation they have been known to pull all their feathers out from stress. in fact it's quite common.
We have a Quaker and he's a very sweet boy too. Our little Parrotlet however is another matter...
