My Sun Conure (I hate having to say "my Sun Conure," I can't wait to find out its sex so I can finally give it a name) has found the funniest places to sleep since he's arrived at his new home. Check out his newest bed:


Peacefully snoozing... :tongue:



"Whatchu lookin' at?"


His Grandparents won't be too happy about the new touches he added. :giggle:

Surprisingly, he stayed there for over thirty minutes until I finally moved him! You'd think it'd get a little bit uncomfortable, lol.

He also recently tried to hide in a box, then got stuck, and I had to save him. :)

Shira can sleep anywhere, any time. I've seen her alseep on top of her sleeping tent, with her head hanging down as if her neck were broken. Yesterday she gave me a heart attack because she was hanging on the cage side behind one of her long toys asleep, and I couldn't find her in the cage. She didn't wake up and let me know where she was until I'd called and called for her. (This is the first time she has not awoken upon my waking.)

I have a wire "shelf" called a Patio Perch under Libby's tent in her daytime cage (she also has a tent in her sleeping cage -- Conures love tents!). My husband and I take a nap after lunch and all I have to do is say "naptime" -- the dogs run to our bedroom and Libby pops into her tent.

Yesterday, however, when I got up, I found her sitting on her wire shelf with the bottom of the tent ON HER HEAD! It's one of those triangular tents with a stiff bottom. She looked so silly! Got to wonder what ideas get into their heads sometimes!

I used to have a Blue Front Amazon who would sit with his head inside a bell in his cage and talk to himself! He must have liked the echo! He'd also sleep with his head in that bell sometimes!

Roni loves to put her head down in her food dish, bottoms up, and talk to herself. She also sleeps that way on occasion. Recently she has also taken to doing summer saults in the same food dish. What can I say? Her food dish seems to be her favorite thing.

Nanay didn't you say Roni is or was in breeding mode? Those food dishes double as a dream nest! Our two boy conures like to sleep on the outside of their cage down at the bottom on the poop catcher, covered by the sheet use to keep drafts out. And they both love to be wrapped in anything like a baby and will nap!

I tried to make my own, but it failed. I am afraid to give my Conure one before I find out the gender because I really don't want to encourage breeding behaviors, especially after what happened with Minnie. My mom is terrified about buying female birds now, she hesitated about buying the Conure since we didn't know tha gender.

I can see why to be honest. How much will sexing cost you at the bird farm?
