Ellie – Nanday Conure
Ellie has had it pretty tough in the past and is not very trusting of humans. When she first came to us, she was scared and would sit in the corner all day. Now, only a few weeks later, she happily comes out of her cage and sits on top. She loves to play with her toys and rub her head on them. I feel that one day she may love to be scratched on the head, but this will take time, if ever. She will, however, snatch treats from your hand, so this is a good start. She had a terrible skin infection, which may be the reason she plucked her belly and shoulder feathers. She has plucked a few on our watch, but new ones are growing in, so we are hopeful she will stop now that the infection is gone.
We do not know Ellie's age or sex at this time. She is a nanday conure, which means she can be pretty loud. Continued love and care will do great for her. She doesn't seem to mind the other birds, but is not particularly friendly to them either. Ellie is looking for her forever home, which will need to be patient, kind, and tolerant.
