Summer, the Pet of the Day
Name: Summer
Age: Thirteen years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Sun Conure
Home: Pflugerville, Texas, USA
   This is Summer, my Sun Conure. She was hatched in February of 1993. I got her in May of the same year. She is a very sweet bird. She loves to cuddle, sit on my shoulder and climb around inside my shirt. She also enjoys being scratched just about anywhere. She'll roll over on her back and want me to scratch her tummy. She actually laid an egg in my shirt once when I was sitting on the couch. I stood up, she crawled out the top of my shirt and an egg rolled out the bottom.

    She's loud just like any other Sun would be. Even with that one 'fault,' she's still my little baby. She's not a talker at all. I've tried to get her to say "hello, hi, come here, etc", but have had no success. Guess she'll never talk.

    I know I could never part with her. She is the sweetest bird I've ever had and I've had quite a few. Also, I keep her wings clipped so I can take her outside. She loves the sunshine. I highly recommend a Sun Conure to anyone who wants a little sweetie, as long as you can stand an outburst of screaming once in a while.
