A friend has offered to give me a pair of black-capped conures, but I'd like some info on them before taking them.
Can you tell me a bit about feeding & care, & such? They are an established breeding pair. The guy said the male tends to pick at his feathers. Can that be cured? He said they're healthy & friendly. They're not too big, right? I just want to know how hard they are to care for & feed. I have 2 parakeets, as you might remember. Pepper's mate Sherry died in egg-laying, Cheri died a week later, but I got another, and pepper and his new friend Zoe (a pretty grey parakeet) are doing well since I got her on Christmas eve.
Any info on the conures is appreciated.
