I was looking for a sun conure after my cockatiel passed away, and stumbled upon a breeder near my house. However, they didn't have any babies, so I found a nearby pet store, asked about him, and one thing led to another. I picked him up within a week. When I went to pick him up, he caused as much mischief as he could while I was playing with him in the store. That's how he got his name, Larrikin, because it means mischief maker.

Hi! My name is Larrikin

I am a Sun Conure from Hampton, NY.

Lark, Puff, Puffball

7 years old   M

Sun Conure

I will eat ANYTHING I can get my beak on. Almonds top my list!

My rope perch in my cage, or my mommy's shoulder.

Stepping up. I don't like to do it yet.

She'll let me snuggle on her shoulder and preen her hair. She's already perfectly bird trained, so I don't have to work on her!

I like to cause as much trouble as possible! I also love to twist my head around in funny poses. I nod on cue..

You can never cause enough trouble!.

  Hey Larrkin!
Thank you for voting for me. When you wrote your comment my owners were not truly sure if I was a girl, they only assumed. I sometimes do the naughty dance too! I don't think the pet store made a mistake, because recently I laid an egg!! It was really small, but an egg none the less. I posted a picture come and see!!

  Hi Larrikin
Dandy here. Hey I found out the vet isn't so bad. When mom took me he told us that I was a fine specimen of an Australian tiel. That made me feel real good. Now if I could just find a real fine female tiel. But mom said that she's not heard of any for rescue.
So glad you stopped by and hope you can again soon. v4u

Hi Larrikin...A nest of baby black birds sounds great...and wonderful that your Mom gets to play with them. Thanks for coming by and saying helle'o...We are still hot & dry with another large fire in Lee County :*( but hoping for rain soon. We are cleaning cages today along with our baths...it always makes us feel better. (~_~) Have a good week-end! Here is our vote for you. Lots of Birdie Hugs, Your Floridian Friends, Timba & Treasure

Hey Larrikin! I'm not that fond of cheerios, although I'll usually eat them. My favorite is wheat toast or wheat cracker (especially with peanut butter!) Peanut in the shell I'd travel a mile for...(well, maybe not a mile, since I'd have to walk!) Have a good nite...Cya...

  Hi from Max (ie) the WonderBird!
Hey Larrikin! Wow, I wish I could train my person like that. Although whenever I'm hanging by one leg, it's because I've slipped/fallen from the perch and if she sees me she is trained to come and assist me! I am getting used to being female, it was just kinda a shock after all these years! Me and Miracle will just be girlfriends now, cuz she knows for sure that she's female. Have a great day and keep mooching those cheerios! Cya...

  Hi from Max (ie) the WonderBird!
Hey Larrikin! So you have your mom pretty well trained now, huh? That's cool, how did you manage that? A lot of things have gone on with me since I talked to you last. I went to the vet and found out that I had a bacterial infection so had to take meds for a week. That cleared up and then the results of my DNA test came back as FEMALE! And here I had a girlfriend here on BC. Now our relationship is doomed...(sigh)...have a great nite and come tell me how you've trained you mom...Cya...

  Hi from Max (the WonderBird!)
Hey Larrikin! Glad you're getting braver about coming out of your cage. You'll like that so much that they'll have to eventually work hard to get you back INTO the cage! Biting is ok (ones requiring stitches are not!) cuz it keeps the humans on their toes...you can train them faster that way...lol...(Please vote Lilly Lou for BOTW!) Cya...

  Hi Larrikin
Congrats on the steping up and not being afraid of hands so much now. Sometimes Gus likes to examine moms hands too and mom either jiggles her hand some to distract him or make him step up on another hand to get him occupied on something else and that helps too.Today was a very pretty day and got to almost 80 …wooo hooo summer is here mom says! Mom got some seeds and is trying sprout them for us so not sure what we will get out them yet. We are suppose to get some rain late this afternoon and tomorrow too and of course then it will cool off too. Some of you gave mom good suggestions and places to visit and want to tell you thanks so much for all your help. Mom looked at them online and sure did help her a lot. Tomorrow mom is going scrapbooking with some friends for a while but dad will be home so we wont be alone. Shake a feather and come visit us anytime my friend…. We love your company. Here is a big ole kiss and vote as we say cheech to you later.

Come visit me, Gus --Chi chi ♥ RIP & Chi chi RIP my sweet girl..

  Hi from Max (the WonderBird!)
He Larrikin! So, you're going to the vet? I'm sure your mom will figure out a way to make it easier on you. I was supposed to go to the vet myself this coming Friday, but we have to cancel it and make it the following week. You'll have to tell me how you liked it, cuz I'm sure not looking forward to it, it's over an hour ride each way...Cya...

  Hi Larrikin. Ohhhh. I hate the vet. Me and George just went for our check ups a lil over a month ago. Mom had them run our blood werk too. Don't know what she was thinking. It hurt!! Bella gets to go next month. Mom just got her March 16 and hasn't had time to get her to the vet. The closest avian vet is over an hours away. Well, heres a vote for ya. Have a goodnight and good luck at the vet. Pecks!!!
