I was at a local pet store and they had a 4 month old baby conure there that when it saw me it chirped like a cricket. so I walked over and looked at it and it climbed up the cage and came as close to me as it could. I poked my finger through the bars (you know, like a little kid would) and it started rubbing its neck on my finger affectionately! I stroked its neck and it's side and it rolled over onto it's back closing it's eyes as if to say "yeah, THAT's the spot, rub my tummy!" it was the cutest thing i ever saw.... ever! I was petting it for probably 20 minutes. but the price?? 430$ YIKES!!! that didn't even include a cage/food/anything! sooo... no conure for me. wahhh. I really fell in love with that bird too. Blargh.
