About Us
Rocky, the Pet of the Day
Name: Rocky
Age: Eleven months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Dusky Conure
Home: Rochester, New York, USA
   Rocky is an intelligent and very playful Dusky Conure. We had gone to the pet store planning to buy a Quaker Parrot but this little Conure proved to be irresistible. She hopped right on my finger, looked at me with those big black eyes, and I knew this was my new baby. You can't tell the sex of a Conure just by looking at them so we didn't discover Rocky was a girl until we had her DNA tested in December. We picked the name Rocky because she had a crooked beak and needed a tough name!

    Rocky really acts more like a dog than a bird. She prefers sitting on a couch instead of a perch and she just loves to snuggle. Her favorite treats are green beans, millet, and an occasional bite of a cupcake. She was born with a crooked beak that requires extra care but it's worth it for all the love she gives us in return. Although sometimes Rocky gets a little loud we love hearing her happily squawk during the day. She's also a great playmate for our poodle, as long as she doesn't steal his favorite toys. We can't imagine life without our wonderful Dusky Conure, Rocky!
