I'm still unsure whether or not I am going to sell them, though I do feel that it is for the best, so if the right person comes along then I will be willing to let them go
I'm sadly thinking of rehoming my black capped conure (Charley) and my green cheek conure (Amber). The reason that I am doing this is that they are currently living in an outdoor aviary which I need to move a lot of other birds into due to the old one the budgie flock is in falling apart. The other day I lost some of this years birds I have bred and a few others due to the door falling apart (even though it gave no signs). Charley and Amber have been in one of the indoor aviaries now since earlier this year and I can't bring them into my home due to the obvious losses of my other birds. I still believe that it is/was something in the house and I can't risk bringing them in. If it wasn't for this, then I wouldn't be selling them at all
A bit of information about the birds themselves...
Charley is a black capped conure. We suspect that he is actually female. He hasn't laid any eggs and hasn't been DNA tested but from his/her behaviour and attitude we're 99% sure that he is a she. She is roughly 7 years old according to her ring details, though I cannot guarantee this. Their previous owner didn't seem to know much about them. Charley is a sassy girl, and I mean sassy! She is 'tame' when she gets to know you. At first she's a little bit shy and then she turns into a bird who wants to hang out and eat with you. She isn't one for stepping up but she does like to fly to you if you have something she wants. She has yet to bite me at all and gives good warning before doing so (the snake neck dance and plenty of grumbling). She does talk, but I have absolutely no idea what so ever what she is saying at all
Amber is more of an aviary bird, though he does like to follow Charley everywhere. He is not confident around people as of yet but he has been in an aviary now for some time. We suspect that Amber is actually male, again, based on behaviour and traits I have seen in my other birds. Because of his shyness, I can't write too much about him, because I don't feel like he's been able to show his true colours just yet. Amber is roughly 6 years old
Both birds need to stay together. They can either be housed together or they can be housed separately but Amber is better off being housed with Charley for confidence. Neither bird has their wings clipped, nor will I be having them clipped for the new owner. It gives them more confidence and Amber may just have a meltdown if she's clipped. At the moment they're being fed on variety of high quality seed mixes. I have to take the sun flower seeds out all together though as both of them are real junkies. Their previous owner fed them on a diet that was almost ALL sunflower seed and the odd bit of millet. They now readily accept their fresh foods (best in the morning when they've not been fed). I would either like them to go to an aviary home OR a home where they will be either part of a flock or have plenty of out of cage time every single day. I want to be guaranteed that these birds are going to be happy
I can either rehome the conures on their own for £150 for both of them OR I can rehome the conures with a large cage thrown in for £200 (also toys of theirs and such)
