Species: Blue Crown Conure

Name: Cody.

Owner since April '94.  From First Flight  in Selden.  

Reason for giving up: Moving to Condo January 2015

Healthy and is a good eater.  I feed him a premium seed mixture as well as providing him with fruits and veggies. (He likes pizza crust too).

He lost some feathers on his chest about 10 yrs ago and they never came back, but rest of his body, head and wings are perfect.

Sex: Unknown

Behavior: He can be a bit "nippy" if he is not in the mood but evenings and at night he is a mush. He will perch up on your hand and try to get up on your shoulders when you pick him up.  He loves baths, and hanging out in his swimming pool which is a bowl of warm water.  His nails need to get clipped and wings trimmed.

Cage included  

CODY

Behavior:  Sings, talks, laughs and likes to sit on your shoulder

Tame:  Yes

Diet:  Parrot Food, nuts, eggs, fruits and some veggies

Cage Included

Tuki is currently being fostered and is looking for a forever home where he will continue to be spoiled.  Tuki would be comfortable in a home with other small birds or possibly where he would be the only fid (feathered kid).

Cage Included

Petey is a sweet, super lovable bird who has developed a feather-plucking habit over the last two years.  Petey deserves a home with lots of love and attention--hopefully with other conures.  Petey loves to be held and sit on the shoulder.  Petey's amazing skill is to chirp for poop breaks and waits to get to her cage!  Such a smart, loving, great bird.  Owner has to re-home her due to allergies.
