Here is my newest addition to my lil flock. He/she is a half moon conure. Apx 12 years old and is the cutest lil darn bird ever. He is very hand shy as far as petting goes but steps right up as long as you remember to say step up first. He felt a little on the thin side, so I weighed him...he is only 66 gramms and I think he needs to be around 78 gramms. A couple owners ago...he was hit with flyswatters and poked thru the bars with a fly swatter...at that time his name was paulie. Two years ago, moms neibor took him in and named him poppy {bleck} he doesnt respond to anything {except my shoulder...GEEEEE first day and all}

Trying to think of a sweet name for this poor lil sweet bird.

To be honest I was only going to foster him/her till the perfect person came and made a love conection...but thinking over his past and the fact he is 12 I just feel he deserves to land on a perch and stay there. He has been bounced around to much. {dont think fostering and rescue is going to work out for me. LMAO}He is in his FINAL HOME!

He is just too cute for words. I don't blame you for deciding to keep him with you. Just think how happy he and you will be. I could never foster any animal. I'm too much of a push over they would all stay here! That's why I try not to go to rescues, my heart breaks seeing all of the animals I want to bring them all home. Even animals I'm not to fond of like cats! Nancy

He looks very dignified- and his feathers are so bright! He's very lucky to have found you, and his permanent home. Congrats to both of you!

OOOOO I love all these names. This lil bird is the sweetest little bird, Im not kidding. I am wrapped around his itty bitty toes in a serious way! I put him in one of my back up cages today...it has horizontal bars, its very sturdy, has a great play top and a place for four food bowls. He had a total blast on his new play top and did extremley well with the change. Im very pleased!!

People are so cruel!!!

He is just adorable! And he DOES look very dignified. He actually looks like a Frederick to me. . don't know why but that's the first name that came to mind.

Good luck in picking a name and CONGRATS on your new family member.

Thank you Janny. Nothin special about me though...Im just like them in a horrible way. I really feel I connect with these birds with a bad story and tons of baggage attatched to them. Ive been kicked around for years, I know how horrible it is to be mistreated and I also know how wonderful it is to finally find someone who not only treats me better than I could of ever hoped for, I also have someone who totally doesnt freek out when I have MOMENTS. These birds are just as wonderful for my healing process as I am for theres. {I hope that made sence}

I found a use for that cage he came in...it has high sides...putting the lil chickies in it!! WOOO HOOO

Well...update on the little conure...whos name is now Jake.

My brother in law came over and wanted to see the new lil bird. Good Golly I have never seen ANYTHING like what I saw tonight. Brought tears to my eyes big time. Little Jake went nuts over my BIL!! I couldnt believe all the little sounds and all the words lil Jake was saying. It was so obvious the lil bird fell in love and my brother in law turned into a damn marshmellow creme puff. I told my BIL I needed to talk with my mom and tell her what I saw and he needed to visit more and see how it goes. Mom agrees that the little conure wants to be with him and I should let him go. He only lives a minute or less away and I can keep very close tabs on lil jakes care...I cant deny that bird what it wants even though I really want to keep him. Lil Jake made it very clear he loves Bobby...even bit the snot out of me when I took him back...ROFLMAO. Dont have to hit me with a brick to make me hear ya!! So sometime next week my new little friend may be goin to live with his new daddy!! Did I mention...this sucks???Mom says its not fdair to keep him from someone he obviousley wants to be with so I will give him and all his new things to B.I.L

I dont know how you real rescue people do this...Im bummed out already.

Mom2beebop, I'm so sorry for you but so happy for Jake. At least you will always be able to visit him and keep track. That must have been amazing to see the instant bond between the two of them. Instant buddies. I met a man in Florida who had that type of instant bond with a sun conure. It was loose outdoors. He keeps his windows open lives in Key West the bird flew into his house and hasn't left! No cage just a perch. The bird has freedom to come and go as he pleases. This old gentleman was quite the character. Hair have way down his back rides a harley with no shoes or shirt. I met him after seeing him ride down Duval St on his harley with the bird on his head! Killer the conure loves to go for rides on the bike! He just holds on tight to the man's hair. This old gent is a retired engineer with a phd!!! If the bird gets tired of being in town he flies home! You could see the bond between them. Amazing Nancy

Than you Nancy. Im tossing and turning, cant sleep. Lil Jake has barley been here 48 hours and Im soooo extremley attatched to him already. He has been thru so darn much in his life, I just dont want to let him go, I want to protect him and keep him safe but the conection between those two was just incredible. tomarrow I am going to print off all the safe and unsafe foods, woods, metals etc etc. Recipes I have for foods to cook and everything I can think of on taking great care of a bird. Plus signs of illness information etc etc.
The guy on the harley totally sounds like my kind of people!! What a neat story!
My husbands brother has to come visit a few more times and spend time with Jake before I let him go stay.

Mom is sure having fun poking fun at me. We give eachother a hard time all the time {in fun} and she thinks its very funny that I got tradded out, lost my lil bird, my back up cage and all sorts of fun stuff for jake....but I sure got a neat cage for my CHICKENS!!

I put the little chickens in the cage Jake came in!!ROFLMAO

I know how you feel M2BB.Before Dave(my hubby) met me he had never even had a dog for a pet.I changed his world I tell ya and he is much happier for it. laugh .Our Avian vet had phoned us about Ripley our first CAG.She told us all about the abuse he endured and what kind of life he had had and asked us to foster him in the begining.I was soooo excited because I had wanted to rescue a grey for quite some time and here was a chanse.Hubby and I went to pick him up and we heard all kinds of things coming from the carrier but we hadn't held or really had much time with him as it was late in the day and we wanted to get him settled before night so we packed up and went home.

Hubby was scared of him at first.lol.Wouldn't go near him and thought I was absolutely nuts to trust him like I did.All I could think was it's only a bite. :rolleyes: Well Ripley in the begining was very good to me and never offered his beak to me once then all of a sudden Hubby came and got him and held him.I had never seen such a display in my life....Regurgitating,mating dance it was sickening.I was hurt because here I wanted and loved this bird soooo much already and he chose hubby in one second.Well everytime I tried to do anything with Ripley after that it was disaster.He bit me sooooo much and everytime it brought tears to my eyes.I am happy for Ripley though and to have finally after so much abuse in his life to find love like he did with hubby is the ultimate.I am allowed into the flock now but I have boundries set by Rip. :rolleyes: I am happy with what I can get. smile

Pretty much the same thing happened with Misty our other grey.Loved me up until she met hubby.He is a grey magnet I swear.She is still very friendly with me but regurgitates for hubby and is just like mush to him.

I am sure Jake will be fine with your guidence.

Its a big time bummer when ya get tradded out huh Janny???
Is it wrong of me to hope the next meeting goes terribley?? LOL This morning Jake is very happy with me, loves his breakfast and is calling me to step up.....unfortunatley it just isnt the same as last night with my brother in law. I really really want to ask Bobby to wait a little longer for a younger bird to come along. I know more will come. He has only been waiting three years. LOL I also know with the next bird I will come up with a hundred reasons as to why this one has to stay to.
