My story

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.

Hatch Date: approx.: 2013

Jax is a spunky 9-year-old Jenday Conure, recently DNA'd Female.  

She likes hanging out with her foster mom and will fly to her shoulder or will step up when on top of her cage. 

Update - Unfortunately Jax plucked has plucked her chest, under her wings and her legs again. Foster mom thinks it coincided when she was traveling and a bird sitter took care of Jax. Even though she may not be as pretty as before, she is as high energy and loving as ever. 

Her foster mom is her new favorite person, and unfortunately, she will fly to others to bite their neck or ears and chase them away.
This is a form of jealousy and protection of her person. Because of this behavior, she will not be adopted out to a family with young children. 

She may or may not bond with one person in a new home, but this is what we have seen in her foster home. 

She has had some issues with plucking, as is apparent in her photos.  
The plucking started when her owner became ill, so most likely anxiety and stress induced.  We are monitoring for any new issues.

She doesn't step up from inside her cage, but shortly after opening her cage door, she comes right out and will readily step up or fly to you. She is great about going back into her cage. 

Jax likes preening the ears, neck and forearm of her foster mom, and sometimes can get carried away and start nipping. She is working with her to discourage this. It is not aggression, but overstimulation. 

Jax is sweetest when sitting on the arm or lap of her foster mom and getting head scratches. 
She fluffs up his head and neck feathers and moves around like a bobble head. 
So cute!!!

She had been on an all-seed diet his entire life, up until about a year ago, when the owner's 
daughter started introducing her to ZuPreem pellets. She now eats ZuPreem like a champ.

As is common with Jenday Conures, Jax can be loud. Sh e is not a screamer but calls out when she sees or hears you because she wants to be where the action is. 

Jax is being fostered in Manalapan, NJ and will require three in-person visits before adoption; we do not ship our adoptable birds.
For the Love of Birds is a network of dedicated foster homes throughout NJ and Eastern PA. 
As our adoptable birds are living in volunteer homes, we only allow approved adopters to make the required visits.
If interested in adopting Jax please visit our website and read our adoption policies, fees and to complete an adoption application.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

The adoption procedure begins with completing an adoption application and returning it to us. We will check your references and then call you for a telephone interview. While we check your references, we will ask that you review an educational power point presentation. After your application is approved, it is our policy that you visit with the bird(s) three times to have multiple interactions with them and give you time to consider the adoption and get ready for your new family member. There is an adoption fee for each bird.
