"My GCC, Peabody, is my first parrot. I had a few budgies (parakeets)before, but never a parrot. Peabody was four months old when I bought him. I thought he would be a lot like a budgie, silly me. Tiny little bird that he was, I found myself 'bird proofing' my home. I couldn't believe his deductive reasoning. It would take more space than I have here to explain what he would do, but it amazed me. I am a high school teacher, and this little bird had more critical thinking skills than many of my students. He talks... A LOT! His favorites are 'Whatcha' doing', 'Get the baby!', 'Whaz up, Nut', and my favorite is when I take him for a ride in the car ... 'Wheeeeeeee' and 'Zoom, zoom, zoom' (from the TV ads on tv). One thing he does that I have never seen or heard of about GCCs is he PURRS! I don't have cats, so he can't have learned it from a cat. He crawls into my lap in the evenings for his scratch and purrs! You can hear it and feel him vibrating as he purrs. Has anyone ever had a purring conure? Anyway, he's six years old now. A happy, healthy bird raised by a totally inexperienced parrot person. "
