New to the Forum

Hello! 3 weeks ago we added two new members to our family. Kate is a Quaker and Byrdina is a Sunday Conure. They are both 7 years old and were adopted from a rescue ran by an avian vet. We also have Mocha the guinea pig and Phoebe the cat in addition to my husband, two kids and myself.

We have had birds in the past and were ready to add a new feathered member to the family. (No one was bursting into tears any longer at the thought of our beloved GCC who died this past winter and the kids were making fun of me talking to the birds outside in the tree. ) After researching different breeds we felt a Quaker would be a good fit for our family and we located one at a local rescue. When we first went to visit, she was so sweet we fell in love. BUT we also met this beautiful shy sun/jenday conure. Very different personalities but we have different ways we each interact with our feathered family members. After some thought and discussion and another visit we brought them home a little over a week later.

Kate(the Quaker) is a talker which is tons of fun especially for our chatterbox daughter. She does have some agressive behaviors at times but is super nice most of the time.
Byrdina(Conure) is taking a little longer to settle in. He/she quite timid and kind of skittish but he likes to hang out and will cuddle at times and likes head scratches. He has not yet tried to bite any of us which is a big plus.
