He does not know step-up yet but will climb onto your finger easily if he is not in his cage. He prefers to be shouldered versus being held on a finger. 

 

Noah is very tolerant of baths and enjoys being cuddled in a hand towel afterward.

 

He is very mobile despite missing a toe. He does have balance issues.

Noah and his best friend ChaCha will need to be adopted together.

Other comments: ChaCha is a happy little guy who enjoys talking in a deep voice between chirps. ChaCha hangs out on top of his cage keeping track of all that goes on in our neighborhood alerting when anyone new enters. ChaCha loves his morning mash and will wait patiently for it. He is not a bird that steps up on to your hand, he prefers to step up onto a stick to be moved from place to place. He does bite if you stick your finger out. He enjoys ripping paper off the bottom of his cage or toys off the top. We give him a variety of toys from phone books, rope toys, to food puzzles. ChaCha seems to like a variety of foods/mash.

He does have the bald spot on the top of his head, the vet said that is a genetic Nanday Conure thing. He is not a cuddle buddy, but he is a bit of a comic. If he gets mad at his neighbor (bird) he lets his thoughts be known.

ChaCha and Noah will need to be adopted together.

We have been living in our new foster home for a few months now and they think we are very easy, sweet birds. We don't want a lot of human touch or interaction although we love it when our foster moms come in the room and will get all excited with conure joy. 

We have a few disabilities so have a very special set up in the "little bird room" in our foster home to help us be mobile safely. We live in a rabbit cage with an open door full of ladders, rope perches, etc. We rarely are inside our cage except to pick up food we threw at breakfast. We haven't chewed anything we aren't supposed so our foster moms never close the door. We are in a back bedroom though with the door closed with our lovebird and parakeet friends so care would need to be taken if there are animals in our new home. One of us has feet issues and sometimes looses our grip and flies to the floor. There is a ladder set up so I can travel back up the cage and it is obvious by the conure distress noises when that happens. But sometimes I find something interested to check out like the shelf on the bottom of another cage and don't return right away to my buddy much to his dismay. 

We are huge veggie, mash, fruit eaters. If we could we would have it brought to us several times a day. We have been known to finish what the other birds don't eat. In fact in the morning if our foster moms are late with our breakfast we let them know it is not acceptable. 

 

As far as toys we aren't much into playing with them. We have chewed a few here and there but it is just not our thing. We love hanging out together on our ladder looking out the window at the birds.

 

Our foster moms have a fountain in our room that we absolutely love. We get very wet playing in the water but we have a tendency to put our food in there too so it has to be changed very frequently. 

 

We tend to be a bit messy and our cage has to be cleaned more than most. We throw a lot out at breakfast and then later have a snack on what looks good at the bottom of the cage. 

 

Our new home needs to be willing to create an environment for us that is safe, fun, and takes into account our disabilities. Our foster mom says that we are two great birds with fun personalities and it is time we found our own home with a family to love.
