||Nine months old|
||Green Cheek Conure|
||Butler, Pennsylvania, USA|
is our green cheek conure Kramer. He's been with us for six months
now. He shares our home with his dog and cat buddies. Kramer is our
first bird. We wanted something small, rather quiet, and very friendly.
Kramer fits the bill perfectly! When Kramer hears the door open when
we get home from work he starts squawking until we come see him. When
he knows we can see him he rolls onto his back so we'll come pet him.
He even sleeps in his tent on his back! He always wants to be around
his people. I say "his" people, because he is very weary of strangers.
He gives strange people a little nip when he feels uncomfortable.
Kramer is also a big shower fan. He sits on his shower perch and just
preens away. I was very surprised to see how well this little bird
handles himself. If our 90-pound Doberman gets a little rough with him,
he'll just chase him and nip at his nose! We get a good laugh out of
that. We're very happy that we adopted Kramer!
