Nanday Conures as Pets:
Chatty, beautiful, and intelligent, Nanday Conures now grace the homes of many a bird lover. They are very social birds, bonding strongly to their owners. Many have also been known to become talented talkers, capable of learning several words and short phrases.
While Nandays have a reputation for being one of the louder conure species, the noise level can depend largely on whether or not the bird is getting adequate socialization. While they do sometimes scream and screech for no apparent reason, most properly socialized Nandays are too busy enjoying life to stop and scream. It's imperative that potential Nanday owners make sure they have enough free time to spend with their new pet bird before bringing one home. Adopting a Nanday Conure is not a move to be taken lightly.
If you are interested in adopting a Nanday Conure, the first thing to do is check your state and local laws to make sure that you are allowed to keep one. Because Nandays are such a hardy species, they can survive in the wild in many parts of North America if they escape, and indeed several feral colonies of Nandays already reside in the U.S. Nandays are considered invasive and a threat to native U.S. bird species by many. If you find that pet Nanday Conures are legal in your area, contact a good local breeder and set up an appointment to meet their available birds. Spending time with a few different birds before choosing a pet will help you pick the one that is the best fit for your personality and lifestyle.
