everybody, meet our beloved clown pet conure Peach!
Before we got Peach we liked going around pet stores and looking at
different cute little animals. One day we saw Peach - he was sitting on
his food bowl flapping his wings, making kissing noises asking us to
pick him up. We knew conures are lots of responsibility and noise, so we
left the store and in five minutes we found ourselves coming back :). He
sat on my hand kissing my fingers, making kissing noises and he was so
glad to be out of the cage. We bought him and brought him home and spend
so much time with him.
He's such a funny and smart bird. He watched me open his cage a couple
of times, then in a few days I came back from work and I saw him opening
his cage, pushing the door to open with his beak and crawling on top of
the cage to shake his winds and squawk. He talks up a storm when he
wants you to pay attention to him. He has plenty of toys but he doesn't
play with any of them, he likes being out of his cage all day, walking
on the floor, exploring. If you put him in the cage he'll yell till you
let him out. We tried covering him with a blanket when he yells, but
he's a smart bird - he chews a hole in a blanket, looks through the hole
and if he sees anybody through that hole he'll talk till you take him
He can say "Peach", "I love you", "Good Bird", "I want out, I want out",
"Hellooooooooooooooo", "Don't do that", "Kisssss", "Come Here".
Sometimes he'll chew on stuff he's not supposed to chew, and when I come
over and look at him he'll say "Don't do that! Don't do that!" because
he knows what I usually say when he chews things up :))) He likes to
cuddle up in my hair and purr like a kitten, and say "Good Birrrrrrrrd".
I left the radio on a couple afternoons, he listens, tries to sing along
and bounces his head up and down. Next morning you take him out of the
cage he'll bounce his head up and down and say all phrases he knows and
some made-up words real quick, it sounds like he's singing rap even
thought he was listening to country music on the radio. Everybody laughs
when he does that :). If you wake up in the middle of the night and go
by the cage, he'll hiss at you be cause you woke him up, he hisses like
He's a funny bird and a joy to watch, it's always interesting to see
what he'll do next, I love my little Peach.
Ok, it's time to go eat some carrots, Peach says: "I love you,
