    Updates on my 11 year old Sun Conure Josie

    Wow it's been forever since I've posted on here. Well if you don't remember, I got an 11 year old sun conure named Josie in March. It's been great having her around since we lost our other parrots to old age. She sits on her rope perch attached to my metal framed desk. Right now she's sitting there doing her usual preening and watching that one movie The New Guy and bobbing her head between preening and staring at me.

    Josie is molting like crazy and her cage is covered in feathers. It's pin feathers galore on her face and neck, she looks like a mess...and yet still adorable. Actually less than three seconds ago a feather came flying at my face

    So far she adores me still, but my brother?...not so much. If he so much as comes near me she lunges, poor brother. She loves my best friend cassie though. Here's a picture of Cassie and Josie before heading off to my party...

    Cassie is going to hate me for posting, but she'll get over it.
    Josie hates her baths (for her molting) and often wants to bite my face off after the bath...any advice on making it easier on her? My past birds adored baths...but they enjoyed everything She hates new things too...haha. Everyone in the family loves Josie with a passion and I'm glad I got her. Something interesting about her though is that she LOVES big dogs...but DESPISES my little dogs....hmmm


    excuse me, I would love to write more buy she's throwing food all over my desk and room....gotto go clean that up before my parents see it, ahah.

    She's gorgeous! I love the bright colors.... unfortunately, such a constant loud voice would grate on my ears eventually. Congrads!

    Awwwww........she is adorable! Bo has been moulting forever as well and his head and face is covered in pins too, so I know what it's like!

    awww... she's so beautiful! have you tried giving lots of head rubs for the pin feathers? when Taco was molting i would sit with him for an hour and just rub the pin feathers bet. my fingers to lessen the itch. and baths, too, but he didnt like those

    Well, she's not THAT cranky. but one moment she wants me to pick her up and the next moment she wants to tear my hand off!
    She throws dried fruit at me a lot more now...but I don't think it has to do with the mood swings She's fighting her toys at the moment, haha.

    She's gorgeous!
    Have you tried misting her with a spray bottle? My birds enjoy this - I just aim it upwards so the fine mist falls down onto them and they go crazy stretching their wings under it..! LOL
