Physical Description: Nanday Conures are varying shades of green with the lightest area being the stomach and the darkest on the back. Their faces and beak are black. The underside of the wings and tail are deep, royal blue. They have a patch of bright red feathers above each foot, giving them the appearance of wearing socks on their flesh-colored feet.
Average Lifespan: 20+ years
Sexing: This species is not sexually dimorphic, which means there is no visible difference between male and female. The only sure way to know the sex of these parrots is with a DNA test.
Origin: South America, specifically Brazil and Bolivia as well as some parts of Argentina. There are currently a few established flocks in the Southern portion of North America.
Trainability: Domestic, hand-fed babies make loveable, highly interactive pets when they are reared from a young age and taught that some behaviors are unacceptable. Conures can be taught to mimic some speech as well as sounds and whistles. They can be taught tricks and, if you are diligent, can be “potty trained” to some extent.
Loudness: These parrots are known for their loud calls and sounds and are not recommended for those who are sensitive to noise. They do not do well in apartment housing because of their loud calls.
Pricing: Please call our store at (954) 725-0088 for all pricing and availability.
Health Guarantee of Our Birds
We have the strongest bird guarantee in the country, and more importantly, we stand behind our guarantee. The guarantee is simple: We guarantee that we are selling you a perfectly healthy bird. To verify that guarantee, within five days you need to go to an Avian Vet and get any and all testing you prefer to do on your bird, at your expense. We can guide you as to the tests we suggest. If the results are not perfect but the bird can be easily treated, then we pay for all medications and all treatment. If the results are unacceptable then we either replace your bird or refund 100% of the purchase price of your bird, at our option.
Bird Guarantee only lasts for the first five days
Since we have 100% control over the bird's environment at our store, but have no control over the bird once it leaves, we can only guarantee the bird for the first five days. We guarantee that when the bird leaves the store that it has been properly socialized, and that it is 100% healthy. Your new bird has been given an excellent start here at Golden Cockatoo, and it is now your responsibility to properly care for your bird. We are always here to help you take the best care of your bird with the biggest variety and best quality bird products available in the world.
Lifetime Guarantee on our Birds
We guarantee that if during your lifetime, you are no longer able to properly care for your bird, or give your bird the attention it need's, we will accept the bird back on consignment and will find another great home for your bird. We do take a 40% commission and charge a nominal daily fee to feed and clean, but you can rest assured that you always have a place for your bird should the need arise. We are the only store in Florida to offer this guarantee as of the year 2000.
