Since three years, I always wanted to have a Conure although my first and second bird were both lovebirds that I had for many years. Every time I go to a pet store and see a conure I just can't leave the store. But buying a bird from a pet store was not what I wanted and so I started to look online for breeders and got in touch with one of them. I wanted a photo of the birds and after seeing Lingua I couldn't resist :).

  Hello my friend!
Thanks for the compliments on my new photos! I had so much fun at the 'photo shoot'. Mom said she wanted new summer pic's of us, so at first we weren't very thrilled of the idea of sitting in trees (bor-ing!) however, once we got in those trees, there were flowers, and bugs and all kinds of interesting things! :)
Neo bit mom? Ouch. My mom understands that. When mom goes on vacation for long periods, we're mad at her when she gets back. Lyzo and myself have bitten her lip (nose,ear,cheek!) plenty of times. Moms says it's not polite and it makes her eyes water. Neo is probably just showing the green cheek 'annoyed' side and will hopefully be loving in no time. :)
Welcome back (to your mom!) and here's a vote for you!
Hugs, Luca

How are you! Is your mom back? I sure miss you! I hope all is good and you're well? How is everything? I had some cheese the other day and it made me think of you because you like cheese too!
Let me know how you are, ok?

  Calling all Midget McSquigets!
Hello MM GCC Lingua 003 (thats your new secret agent code name since you are the third official member of the Midget McSquiget club, which is a club formed by Luca and Lyzo and is only for petite conures!). You have officially been nominated by the founding Agent Luca McDuck herself to join the group.
Welcome!!! We know you are very important and busy, however we need your thinking skills to aid us this beautiful day!

Ok, our first topic of discussion is this Sunday. It's Lyzos potential BOTD day and we don't even know where to start.
- Lola and I keep bickering about the After-Glow Party. Should we serve finger(toe) food? And troughs of drinks? Or have it buffet style with a more dinner theme to it and have a waiter serve the drinks? Anyone know any caterers?
- Raven and Apollo and Clyde are suppose to be on campaign manager duties (but keep faffing around!)and who knows what they are doing. I think Raven is trying to become a PH.D or something.....
- Gandalf is....Anybody seen Gandalf? Hmmm...he's around here somewhere. Probably pulling the cats' whiskers out.
Anyhow, we could sure use your fantastic help! Maybe help us campaign since the three stooges have no clue? And I still need to sort out the party dresses. Oh boy. I'm stumped!

If you have suggestions, please send them my way. SOS
XOXO Luca

  Hi there my Friend!!!
Lingua! I'm so glad to hear from you! So you moved to a new home? Oh, I can imagine how busy the parronts are. Moving is tough for them. All we have to do it sit and watch the activity, and maybe go for a car ride to the new place! Hah.
And now the mama is leaving for 4 weeks? Wow, well I bet you will really miss her, huh? I don't like when my mom leaves. It makes me cranky!
A possible new family member? Oh GOODY! I can't wait to hear the details. Keep me posted, ok my friend?
Hope all is well with you!!!!

  Hello my friend!!
Luca here, just coming by to wish you a happy memorial day!!!
Mom had a party for me because my hatch day was last Thursday but she wasn't feeling very well so she delayed it until today, plus dad was away and just got home last night. Anyhow, we had a fun time! I can't believe I am 5 years old! Wow. I was only 3 months old when my parronts brought me home. Ahhhh. I have been so utterly spoiled!!!
I hope you have had a wonderful long weekend, my friend! :)
Kisses and hugs, Luca

  Hi Lingua!
Happy (belated) Hatch day!!! Did you have a wonderful day, I hope? We love hatch-days around here. We get extra-spoiled. Moms pretty good about spoiling us all the time, but on our hatch-day celebration, we get our very own cake! (ok, it's birdie bread and we know it, but mom doesn't know WE know!). :)
Anyhow, hope you are having a great week, my friend!

  Hi Lingua!
Happy Mothers day to your mama! We're sending our mama to the movies with our grand-mom (so they can bring us back some popcorn! hee hee).
Our parronts just got a digital camera that mom is still trying to figure out. We have mostly new photos of all of us except Lyzo who is not real happy about having his photo taken. Mom will get it though.
A blue crown conure? Hmmm...Can't think of any however you can search for them by species (which is how mom found a lot of conures like us). Try it that way. We know they are out there!
Have a wonderful day, my friend!! V4U

  Hi my friend!!
Luca here - just coming by for a chat and to vote for my buddy! :)
To answer your question, yes. Sometimes I bite when mom (or dad) takes me out of my cage. I am feisty and usually this time of year (spring time) the hormones are in full swing and I get nippy. What mom does when I am like this is let me come out of my cage (on my own), I fluff up, get all excited to see her, dance around (basically, let all my pent up energy out) then mom asks me to step up and I step up like a good girl. I get a little over-excited sometimes and although it's polite to listen, sometimes we don't want to. Mom also gets a small perch and will ask me to step up on that. After I shred it to death, I step up. You are close to hitting that maturity level, so when I first started biting my parronts, they thought I was being rude. I just have a mind of my own and like to do my own thing! :) Hope this helps?
A Blue Crown! They are soooooo pretty! And funny too! You have to keep us posted if you get a new flock mate, ok? Thanks for the link!
Here's a vote for you and behave for your mama!!!

  Hi Lingua!
Just Luca checking in - how is everything, my cute friend? My mommy went to the exotic bird store yesterday and saw some red-faced yellow sided green cheeks and mommy almost brought one home! Yipes! I told her she can't have another parrot possibly cuter than me. :) hee hee.
Hope all is well - V4U

  Hiya Pal
When I first learn new words mom can never figure out what it is I am saying until I master it!! Hang in there it takes some time till it comes out clearly. When I first started saying hi peete mom thought I was saying Habeeb!! Who the heck is that? heehee.. Mom used to ask me me if i wanna come out of my cage. So I started repeating Do you wanna come out..It took mom a long time to figure that one out until I started saying it more clearly. ;) leaving you a vote.. and a hug xxxxx

Hello my friend! How are you? All is well here - mom has been watching the olympics and forgot that maybe we want to visit our friends? Hello! We had to remind her but we got her on track. She got smart and got the laptop out and while she stays up for hours watching ice skating, we get to play online. Yippee!
Ok sweetie! V4U!
Talk soon!

  Hi Lingua!!
Luca here!! Just wondering how the pet sitter went? Did your mom find one she liked? $20 for 30 minutes is about right, so thats good regarding the price (per mom - I just asked her!) We love our pet sitter and we've had her for almost 4 years. Of course, we'd rather have the parronts here, but when they have to go away Jodi is the best!
I hope you are well, my friend! A vote for you!!

  Hi Lingua!
Luca here!! Just flying by to say hello again!! Oh, and I asked mom about the petsitter thing. Our petsitter charges by the day: $20 for once a day visit, $35 for twice a day visits. I guess it depends on who you get what their costs are. My mom found her on PSI - Pet sitters Int'l - www.petsit.com. :) You can pull up your area and see who is in your territory. A word of advice from mom: Interview at least 3 of them (and make sure they have some experience with parrots). Mom was glad she met with 3 of them because the first two were NOT what she wanted in birdie sitters for us. Not that they were not good, mom is just picky and she'll leave only someone really special to care for us.
Hope that helps. It sure is better than boarding. We used to have fun at 'Camp Omars' (an exotic parrot boarding place) but it got very expensive as the flock expanded and mom says she would rather spend that extra money on toys and stuff to spoil us.
Ok - off for now! I think I want to take a bath and then an afternoon nap!
See you soon my friend, and good luck with finding a petsitter! Here's another V4U.

The 'parronts' just returned from vacation (finally!) and I wanted fly by and say Hello to you! Did you have nice holidays? We did. Even though the folks were not here, we were spoiled by our birdie sitter! But we're very happy the parronts are home because now we can all get some computer time!
