My father answered an ad that offered the bird with cage. Unfortunately he only needed her very large cage for his Umbrella cockatoo. Poor Zuni lost both her home and cage that day - although she was spoiled while he had her. Zuni's first owners were busy with a new baby and wanted to breed their dogs, so they could not keep her anymore. She was obviously well cared for there, and still really loves babies to this day (and their Cheerios;-) Zuni was about 7 mos. old when I got her. Her previous owners initially acquired her from a pet store where she had sustained a permanent foot injury from the bite of another parrot. It doesn't slow her down too much, but it seems that her toe was incorrectly set. So, it appears that she has 3 toes in front and one in back instead of 2 and 2. In her photo she's holding her bad toe so it looks like she has normal feet. Her first name was a boy's. I knew she was a girl and named her Zuni. I don't know her exact birthday, but I call her birthday May 1st. I got her in May 2003, but she was about 7 mos. old at that time. I will consider her 4 on May 1st 2007. When we first met to see how we liked each other, she immediately flew/hopped onto my shoulder and didn't want to leave.. Awards

Hi! My name is Zuni

I am a Jenday Conure from Coastal, WA.

Zooners, Zoons, but her full name is: Zuni Sunface Rio Liisa Vainaimoinen Victoria

13 years old   F

Jenday Conure

Almonds, satsumas, Pad Thai, juice, apples, tuna and PB&J sandwiches, and the rare Frito or Cheetoh.

Playstand on top of cage, the computer station, tiny birds' cage top, my shoulder, and her cuddle nests on my lap or in her cage.

Her Chihuahua sister, Bindi; any tall or long object like a broom or umbrella will cause her to shriek the mother of all jungle calls when she is spooked by such a "snake."

She lets me get away with a lot of antics and tries to give me healthy and tasty foods for me to eat in my bowl. She makes sure I'm all tucked in every night.

She does a sideways dance; does belly dancer neck side-to-side; hides her face from the training signals I make; Tattles on the tiny birds when they do naughty things like eat the wall and hang out on the aquarium; Zuni always hams it up for the camera..

Never stop screeching until you get your way!.

  Hi Zuni, from Rippy
Thanks for stopping by to see me. My mom thinks I'm really cute too. Your whole family is beautiful, but conures are definitely the best birds. I voted for you. Vote for me again when you get the chance.

Come visit me, Carlie & Rippy, a yellow-sided conure.

  Valentino here stopping by to say hello and give you a vote. Thank you for stopping by. Our Easter was fabulous. I got hard boiled eggs. One of my favorites. Mom has been visiting my new brother. He is coming over to visit this weekend after his tests come back and Dr says he can now visit. I cannot wait to meet him. He is a blue and gold and 6 years old. Mom named him Mic, Mic Jaeger because he has this funny tongue action he does. He wont be living with us until the end of April. I am excited! Hope you have a good day playing with toys and eating and just hanging out. By for now. Birdie Kisses and Wing Hugs! Your friend Valentino and Mom.

Come visit me, Mic "The Tongue" Jaeger & Valentino "Big Boy" Jaeger.

  Hi, Zuni!
Thanks for stopping by! You look an awful lot like Pogo. Thank goodness Pogo is starting to get better! His treatment started Tuesday night (we were at the vet's until 1:30 A.M.) and now he gets 3 shots each day and he has to eat a syrup-like mixture. He can't eat like a big boy, he has to be hand fed...I think he likes it. He is getting so spoiled he even sleeps on our shoulder at night! He's not all the way healed, though. His poor little feet are still all curled up. Tonight we have to go to the vet to get his legs casted so the tendons won't get stuck. Keep Pogo in your thoughts! (Here's a vote!) I'll stop by again soon!

Come visit me, Cutie, Yoshi, Tiny & Pogo.

  Hello Zuni
Nice to meet you. I don't like brooms, mops or anything like that. I scream. The dogs in the house don't bother me much. They've been here before I was born. You are a very beautiful girl. Here's a vote for my friend from Sunshine.

Come visit me, Tiki, Poko, Sunshine & Tango.

  Psittacine + Canine = T-R-O-U-B-L-E!
Mom takes dictation for that mongrel canine she has, so she's decided to type once in a while for me too. She had to clip my wings because I kept dive-bomb attacking my Chihuahua sister. It was rare at first, I admit, but it got to be too much fun seeking out the little rat dog throughout the house. Heh, heh. Ah, I do have my memories. I also gave my very first official bite of my life to Grandpa (the one who bought me for my cage) when he came over to visit. I made him bleed on two hands in 3 places. Mom has not been too happy about my behavior. I don't really know why, since I'm the same little technicolor cuddle muffin to her that I've always been.

Come visit me, Zippi, Independence "Indy" RIP, Zuni & Chiquito ~ RIP ~ he died May 30, 2009.
