Hello:
I'm Sheal and I am about to adopt a Nanday Conure named Kiwi. He's 1 1\2 years old, fully flighted and talks. He comes home Friday. He comes when you call him and I will be teaching him step up and step down when he comes to his forever home.
I am a stay at home mom of 4 children, we have a sib husky\wolf mix 2 year old dog named Kemo. I am an artist and writer who was born in Quebec and now lives in Ontario. I am also a paranormal investigator with specialties in EVP (electronic voice phenomena). I am hearing impaired so conure sqwaking isn't a problem esp with kiddies running around being loud anyways. I also have a bachelor's in computers\IT, graphics design, web developing, and tech support in client side\server side.
I am also a child's rights advocate and firm supporter of the "idea" of peta (sometimes they can be a bit aggressive in their campaigns but who isn't when they believe firmly in something).
Hope to meet many wonderful people here and have some well natured debates.

Have you ever had a bird before? If you can get it all worked out, a Nanday is a wonderful pet. I had to learn to be a good avian owner.

A wise man once said that everything one does with a pet should be directed toward having that pet be what you want it to be. If you have an attitude, the pet will also. If you want a fight, the bird will be only too happy to fight. They have more time to work on it than you do.

There are some great books out there, like "Guide to a well behaved Parrot."

Good luck. It might be the start of a very long friendship.
.. and firm supporter of the "idea" of peta

Such as the "idea" that parrot ownership should be outlawed? You won't find a lot of PETA support here. At any rate, welcome; glad to have you onboard. -)

Indeed it is my first, I have been researching cirds for the last year before my decision was made to adopt one. I will never buy from a breeder\petshop (I am against breeding and petshops due to the many cruelties and greediness involved in the bird "industry"). When it comes to any animal, the human is always responsible for their attitude, when it comes to pit bull arguements that they are a nasty breed, no they aren't.

They are nasty due to either the breeder or the "owner" (Like we have a right to say we "own" any sentient being in the first place) attitude and the way they are treated. Same goes for birds of any species, wether that be a conure, cockatoo or macaw. I will soon be owned by Kiwi come friday. I am looking very forward to our relationship and many happy times with him.

As much as you think you are being funny, I don't. I would rather it if you did refrain from making fun of my ideologies and morals please. However, thank you for the welcome, most appreciated.

Hello: I am also a paranormal investigator with specialties in EVP (electronic voice phenomena). I am hearing impaired ..

Wouldn't you have been better off getting into another racket? Perhaps seeing ghosts rather than listening to them?
With kind regards

(I am against breeding and petshops due to the many cruelties and greediness involved in the bird "industry").

So where did your bird come from; was it caught in the wild?
(Like we have a right to say we "own" any sentient being in the first place)

Yeah, right..you're just the bird's "mama".
With kind regards
Chu
"mama" is but a mere label my rude friend. No my bird was not wild caught, the person I am ADOPTING him from bought him from a breeder. I, personally, will NEVER buy from a breeder or petshop, I would rather adopt a bird in need then add to the money grubing industry of breeding and petshops. My husky\wolf mix was a rescue as well. I may be hearing impaired but I am not disabled, I chose to do what I do. If you don't like it find another corner of the internet to be rude in.

I believe a BMW is a car\motorcycle manufacturer. I see your attitude wheeler reflects your beemer driver status...as the saying goes.
