Subject:Re: Rescued a Nanday Conure
Boy, are you in a fix :-) I say that lovingly and jokingly :-)
You are going to fall in love with the little guy especially since you have to take such special care of him. These birds are very fun loving and can bond wonderfully to a human companion. They can be loud, but it is a birds individual tendency that decides how loud it will be. Some are noisier than others but they are all capable of letting it rip. Since you have Toos though, a conures sound will be a few decibels and notches lower than that of a cokatoo when he or she really winds up and lets it go :-) If a Too is a 12 on a scale from 1 to 10, a conure can be about a 4 1/2. Some may disagree with that unless they have been owned by a cockatoo :-)

He will not add too much to your load and the foods you give the other guys , if a well balanced diet, will be the same for the conure.

He may always be a "special needs bird" think about keeping the little guy :-)

Just a thought,
God Bless you for taking the little guy in!
