Hi everyone! My foster`s decided to adopt me, so be sure to check out the other conures who are still looking for their forever homes.

Hi! I`m PJ. I came to Mickaboo with a bit of a feather chewing problem. The vet checked me out and I`m healthy, I`ve just been allowed to nest too much and get all hormonal.. so we`re fixing that with a few shots of Lupron and a better environment. My feathers will probably never fully grow back, but some of my bald spots have grown back.

I`m pretty scared of hands and they make me nervous, but if you let me out of my cage I like to fly around and I love to fly to your shoulder, and hang out with you! I`d make a great coworker just hanging out on your shoulder for ages and preening your neck!

I`ll take treats from your hands if you approach slowly. I can talk, I say "PJ!" and I can whistle a few tunes. When I get really excited, I love to play with my bell toy in my cage and throw it around.

My favorite treats are blackberries and blueberries and I love to chew soft balsa wood toys.

I was featured in Mickaboo`s September 2020 online adoption fair! Check out my ten minute video https://www.youtube.com/watch?t=1064&v=gWUu4kVoswA&feature=youtu.be">here and see me in action with my foster mom!

I might never step on hands and fingers, but I`m OK with arms. Is that good enough for you? I just need a patient home that will go slow with me, and help me manage my hormones to keep them levelled out. Could that be you?
