Meet Cinny and Basil
Cinny is a 3 year old cinnamon green cheek conure and Basil is a 1 year turquoise green cheek conure. These boys are best buddies and absolute clowns. They snuggle and preen each other and squabble too. They will do anything for a little walnut treat, and they love their morning strawberries.
Both talk a little bit and are very engaged with anyone who wants to interact with them. They are fascinated with children and seem to be very interested in spending time with them - but if they get too wound up and overwhelmed, they can bite hard. So it's important to understand body language and respect their space - and especially near their cage. It's never ok to get a bite! And it's our job not to start an unnecessary pattern because they are forced to be defensive. So when they are out, they enjoy flying to you and spending time on your shoulder, hand, and Basil likes to sit on your head. They are very curious and if left unsupervised, will explore everything. They are very dependent on each other and love to stay within eyesight of each other.
When they want attention, they let out a "MEEP" and you can echo it back and they will be quiet after, which is adorable. Cinnamon is really really curious and loved little head scratches and will walk under your chin and hang out there for some affection.
Cinny and Basil are in western North Carolina.
Our process: After you complete our online core class (recommended for anyone!) you will be connected with the adoption coordinator for your area. Attending one of our core parrot care classes is also required in order to adopt a parrot. A list of them may be found at https://www.phoenixlanding.org/events.html. Those classes that count as part of the adoption process are noted with an icon beside their title.
Phoenix Landing offers educational classes and facilitates parrot adoptions in Maryland, D.C., Virginia, North Carolina, and northern Florida. Phoenix Landing does not ship birds.
Thanks for helping parrots!
