I honestly was not expecting to be allowed to have another pet, much less a bird! I happened to see an add in the paper for an all-bird store near me, and I asked my family if we could stop and go check it out.
Well, I got there, and they had a magnificent collection of birds and nestlings being hand-fed. Just curious about my favorite species of bird, I asked if they had any sun conures. Yep -they plopped a half naked baby sun conure chick into my hands. They told me that he wasn't yet sold, and that he was $400. $400, I couldn't believe my ears! Sun conures around here usually cost about $550-600, for non-tame birds! I really felt like I wanted him, but I didn't dare ask, as I wasn't sure I had that much money, and I knew my parents would never let me have another bird.
Well, I was about to try and put him back in the chick nursery and my dad came up to me and whispered, "So... do you want to get him?"
Oh my goodness! "Yes!" I choked out.
He stepped outside and spoke with my mother, and the next thing I knew, we were putting down a deposit on him. From then, I visited him as often as I could until he was weaned. He really is one of the most incredible birds I've ever had... I have been firmly warned I don't get any more, though. *sighs, dreaming about a blue crown conure*

Hi! My name is Cayenne

I am a Sun Conure from Marysville, WA.

Cayenne-bird, dork, Grunt-head, douface, puppy-bird

7 years old   M

Sun Conure

Nutriberries, Zupreme fruity pellets, in-shell almonds, popcorn with almond butter.

My shoulder, his happy hut, the top of the cage. He wants to hang out on my head, but I don't let him.

The evil *gasp* IRONING BOARD!

Hi all! My owner is great! She always lets me out to crawl around on her, and she once, even let me pick the rhinestones off the collar of her shirt!
Well, O.K., maybe I didn't exactly let her... but... well, at least she didn't get -too- mad...

She also cooks me up all sorts of goodies, and makes me tons of toys! Boy-oh-boy do I love my big huge toys, I can crawl all up and down on them!

But yeah, she's great... she just loves playing with me... just recently, she's started making this weird clicking-noise thing, and then giving me treats! I don't know what she's quite up to, but, hey, as long as I'm getting treats, right?


Making soup out of EVERYTHING. Grunting and floofing up when you stick your hand in his happy hut..

Life's a beak!.

  Hi Cayenne
I'm Piper! I'm only 4 months old but I hope to get to be as handsome as you are...my Mom wants that too! I live in North Idaho and came from Seattle, WA so my Mom didn't get to visit me until she came to pick me up. She visited every day for 3 days then took me home. Boy what a ride that was since I'd never been in a car before and she has a big truck. I'm loving life here in Idaho though. We go to my Daddy's every weekend and I get to sit on the back deck and watch all the birds fly around and the Mule and Donkey in the pasture. It's a fun life. Well take care and I'll give you a vote.

  Hi Cayenne
You are a very pretty bird! We have a Sun Conure in our flock named Rainbow and he is a really sweet bird. You asked about Cherry Heads, they have personality for days. Ours is named Sugar and he is a talker. He can actually carry on a conversation. HIs favorite subject is breakfast and biscuits! We have seven parrots in all and are at our limit. Have a great day.

Come visit me, Aique The Caique & Sugar Jenkins.

  'ello!
You're so pretty! I'm jealous =) My mom uses that strange clicker thing too! But it's so much fun once I get the hang of it. I can wave hello, spin around and hold my wings up. Sometimes I get a little over excited and do all my tricks at once, but can you blame me? Sunflower seeds are SO yummy! Fly by sometime, here's a vote!

Come visit me, Kiki.
