Sweetie Bird

This sweetie is Dante, although we also call him Pancho! I'd love to bring him home, but he's pretty expensive ($650), and most importantly, Jimmy won't let me get him. He doesn't love animals the way I do. :-(

Besides the money, I'd also be concerned that I wouldn't be able to properly care for him. These birds require a lot of attention, and I don't know if we can give him the time he deserves. I'd also be afraid that the dogs may try to or accidentally hurt him.

I guess I'm also concerned on who would care for him when I'm gone (dead.) Jenday Conures can live up to 30 years! You may not be able to tell from the picture because he has grown quite a bit, but he's still a baby! He hatched in July! He's got a long life ahead of him!

At some point I'd love to get a bird because I've never had one and think it would be exciting!

No - No more animals. They require time and energy neither you nor Jimmy have.

NO MORE. At least for now.
