I am an experienced handfeeder and lived across the street from my local pet store. They called me worried about a new arrival. They had received a bird that was supposed to be a handfed, weaned Nanday conure. What they got was a dehydrated bird that was still not completely feathered. I went and saw the baby. She was laying on her side and couldn't move. She had been shipped on a 48 hour trip with no water or food only half of an apple. Which she was too young to even eat! I rushed her to a vet and they said I could try to bring her around but chances are she would die. We made it through the first 48 hours of constant feedings and water. After those two days she began to stand up and walk around and within three days she was calling out to me. Of course there was no getting rid of her and she has been with me ever since..

  Hi Saphira!
You have a very pretty name!So happy your mom lived across from that pet store where you first met.She was your guardian angel wasn't she.Mom says if she was in your moms shoes she would not have let you leave the house either.Wonder what those people were thinking when they shipped you?! Well we can answer that - they weren't thinking at all.Hope that pet store set those people straight.That was very negligent and cruel on there part.Just so happy you are in such a loving home.Here's to you Saphira.

Come visit me, Seiji & Nori.

  Hi Saphira
I know mom will still love me if I never have feathers. It is a possibility because I could have done too much damage...time will tell. If you look at my big bro Uzi, he was bald 26 years ago, and the vets thought he always would be, but he has feathers. If you look closely though, his chest is nothing but down!!! And...he made BOTM anyway, lol. Here's a V2U~~Hollie

  Tweety needs your votes for her poem. Her foot had to be amputated Feb. 26th due to the main blood supply being cut in her leg. We had to separate her from her cage mate. I wanted to get her a big cage to move (fly around) in and after paying 258.00 for her leg to become amputated we could not afford to buy her the cage of her dreams. We notice that she flies a little to get around her cage and can defiantly use a bigger one. Thank you; please visit her web site at www.1luckybird.com

Come visit me, Tweety, Frosty and Ringo.

  Awww what a GREAT story!
Saphira, you and your Mommy were destined to be together! You are soooo pretty! Here’s a vote for you and a birdie poem: I love birds, I love them so, Life without them I’ll never know. Each day starts with a meeting, Chirps and whistles it’s their own special greeting. Fresh fruits and veggies to wash and chop, Served with warm birdie bread to fill each crop. Toys of wood, leather and bells, Makes for fun with loud squawking yells. Feathers and pellets all over my floor, Does not deter me from loving them more. As the sun fades we share kisses and scritches, Then it’s off to each cage with sweet dream wishes. If you enjoyed that, please stop by the Bird Contest section on this website and give us your vote in the poetry contest – we are on page 4! Mom would like to add another member to our flock and by winning a new cage, this would encourage Daddy to let her do so!

Come visit me, Riley, Tinkerbell, Tiki & Sayde Rose.

if anything was meant to be, it was your mom coming alone to rescue you! you are a very lucky nanday, and you have turned out to be very pretty. oh, by the way i'm sitting on top of my moms head and telling her what to type because i haven't learned how to yet.

Come visit me, koko & sox.

I own a lovebird, but am a big fan of conures, especially nandays. I never see them in Victoria though, only green cheeked. How can you not spoil such a sweet bird, or any bird for that matter, they just love it! Looks like she loves bathtime! It's amazing what a little love and care will do!

Come visit me, Peeps.

  Oh, what a cutie!
Saphira, what a pretty name. So glad you made it and have a wonderful home now. I just got a new family too and I'm settling in really good. I love snuggling with my new mommy and daddy and I really like my mommy's hair and all the kisses she gives me. I'm not too sure about all the other birds that I hear in the house... Mommy says I can meet them when I'm out of quarantine, but they sure make alot of noise. Come visit me sometime, Carley.

Come visit me, Jamie, Twinkie - Pastel-Faced Lutino, Skittles, Carley & Jessie.

  Welcome
Hi "Princess", I met your sister and thought I would get to know you too. You had a very bad start in life, but now that's behind you and you have a very loving forever home! I don't blame your mom for spoiling you, you deserve to be spoiled!

Come visit me, Poco, Pico, Bindi - R.I.P. ♥ & Skittles - R.I.P. ♥.
