Hello from me and my flock

Hello, my name is Sue and I live in Lake Como, NJ along with my hubby, 2 kids, and 3 fids. First fid is Cupid (Cockatiel), Ozzy (y.s Greencheek Conure), and Darwin (Half Moon Conure). I look forward to learning and sharing with you all.

Welcome Sue/Twink! I have to admit I have no idea what a Half Moon Conure looks like. I would love to see a picture of Darwin. Oh, and I love the name Darwin as well.

Are they the same as a peach front? Looks very similar!

Jenny........ Although very similar in appearance, and also part of the Aratinga species, they are not the same. Peach front's have a white eye with maybe some specks of orange, Halfmoon's have yellow eye rings. The main difference between the two is the beak colour, Peach fronts have black beaks, whereas Halfmoon's have horn coloured beaks. (see pic)

Welcome I love your birds, I would love a conure, but I'm not allowed any more animals at the moment

Ah, good to know! We had a peach front in the store once - what a little stinker!
