I had only Zorro the nanday and we loved him so much we decided to get another conure. We wanted a baby bluecrown. I was looking in a pet shop when I noticed a small travel cage with a bird in it on the floor. It was an adult bluecrown conure, about a year old who had been injured supposedly during transfer. They were trying to decide what to "do" with him. He was shivering in his cage and when I knelt down Duke came to the bars, looked me in the eyes and said Hi. I melted and ransomed Duke for 150$ and a promise I would not try to return him. Duke has turned into a wonderful bird who I adore.. Awards

Toe biters, other birds eating Duke's food!

I love my mommy because she has long hair that I love to preen. I love her because she preens me and feeds me pasta at least once a week. I love her because she loves me!

Duke loves chesty woman and won't sit on a shoulder, only chests. He also does not like men..

What's for dinner??.

  Hey Duke! You seem like a very fun bird. Pudgie likes to sit on my chest too and has the habit when its dark to go in my shirt and hide next to my chest. Birds are so silly sometimes!

Come visit me, Pudgie & Treasure.

  I had a blue crown named Buddy. He was awesome. He loved sitting on my chest too. He would take apart my zipper on my sweat shirts. He would talk up a storm. Unfortunately Buddy had gotten PDD. We had him 1and 1/2 years before he came down with it. He past. I miss him so much. Duke is a lucky bird tohave found you.

Come visit me, Stanley.

  Aw Duke, I am so happy for you! There's probably a good reason why you are afraid of men. They are not all bad as hopefully you will learn one day! What a beautiful baby - a dream come true for both you and your Mommy. Sweet little face . . .

Come visit me, Crackers, Gretta, Fran, Bailey & Hannibal.
