is Crimson, I bought him at a local breeder. I am currently
still hand-feeding Crimson and spoiling him with different kinds of baby
food mixed in with his formula, he loves it. I chose this picture for
one special reason. If you will notice the beautiful spread of his
wings you can see how large they are next to his small body.
One day I took him out of the cage and within seconds he had flown away,
out of sight and nowhere to be found. With medium temperatures, a
windy and rainy night I cried to no end. Just the thought of him being
out there somewhere cold, wet, alone and most of all hungry. Just a
baby. Curious Crimson returned to me 20 hours later. By the next
morning he was outside my back yard up in the tree. After calling his
name for about ten minutes he flew straight into my arms, what a
blessing! Curious Crimson now has his wings clipped on a regular basis,
he has taught me a lesson I won't soon forget.
Crimson has such a sweet personality. As other conures he will lay on
his back in my hand, lap or will choose to do so on his own when
sleeping in his bed. After a messy feeding I will bathe him and he
will actually let me blow dry him. Crimson is a beautiful creature,
one that I will cherish from this day on.
