Chile's former owner died and he was taken to a flea market and was living in a small dirty cage with only a small string of beads to play with. He had started plucking his feathers. He wouldn't let anyone touch him, but that day he let me touch him and play with him a little. We felt bad for him and felt he deserved more, so we took him home, gave him a good bath and a nice clean cage to live in. He's happier, but still a bit nervous and still plucks his feathers on his chest some. But he does love it if you spend time with him. UPDATE: since I've been with my new Mom and Dad for a while now, I've calmed down almost completely, and don't pluck my feathers nearly as much and many have even grown back in. Mom says I'm coming along quite nicely! I'm more of a family bird now..

Hi! My name is Chile

I am a Conure from Clearwater, FL.

Chile Bug. We first were told he was a cherry head conure, but have discovered he is a red fronted conure

14 years old   M

Conure

Anything you are eating!

My cage, or sometimes on Mom's shoulder, but I also love the nesting box Mom and Dad gave me. I feel safe there, and I put a few of my stuffed animals in there to keep me company. That's where I also hide when Mom is giving baths.

I don't like it when my people don't share what they're eating. Sometimes I don't like it when people watch me eat. I also do not like the vacuum cleaner or brooms!

She lets me sit on her shoulder and preen her and spend time with her.

I immitate sounds, like people sneasing and coughing, soda cans opening, and the sound of a drink being poured into a glass. I also collect small stuffed animals and store them neatly in my cage. And no one should touch them! I will bite you if you do! They are my friends. Sometimes Mom and Dad bring me home a new one to add to my collection. I keep them in perfect condition and each one has it's place in my cage..

Don't touch my stuff!.

Hey I think that your bird is actually what they call a Finsch's Conure. I have the same bird and they look identical. If he was a red fronted conure there would be more red. Anyways, I may be wrong, just a thought.

Come visit me, Joey.

  Hi Chile.
I am so glad that you have a loving home, now. Every bird deserves to be loved and it certainly sounds like you are! I don't know why humans insist on using those vacuum cleaners. Mama says if we birds weren't so messy, she wouldn't have to use it so often. I, personally, think it's all the dogs' fault. Here's your second vote. Stop by and see me, sometime. I like making new friends. Skittles

Come visit me, Kudzu.
