I found an ad on Craigslist for a green cheek conure. I was looking for a possible playmate for my own green cheek conure. When we went to meet the former owner, however, we found that it was a blue crowned conure who needed to be rehabilitated.

I'm glad that Kiwi is getting so much better of a life. He looks so much happier. I know the look. When Rico came to us, he had come from a home with little interaction. The way I understand it, is that the guy who had him before started going away a lot on business and had a neighbor look in on the bird. All she did was come in and change the water and food, no interaction. Rico is very fearful of hands, and he has been known to nip or bite. He still won't step up, but if he is on my shoulder he cuddles right up to me, preens me, gives me kisses, talks to me, and purrs. Rico just needed someone to give him a chance, and luck would have it that I am that someone!

Hi! My name is Rico

I am from Lincoln, NE.

10 years old   M


On top of the kitchen/bathroo- m door, on his cage (as opposed to in it)

When people come too close to him.

He loves to put his beak against the base of my skull and gently groom my hairs; if I am on the phone, Rico will start saying, "Yeah? Yeah?" in a very inquisitive voice..
