    My vote would be a nanday or jenday conure!
    Nandy - a bit loud but cuddly & would love to be on you all
    day. They love to play with toys & take showers or a bath
    -Cool water, never hot- they also love to fly!
    Get it from a good breeder not a store.
    Look for a young bird that takes to you.
    Jenday may be a bit less noisy. But I like the nanday.
    Be sure the cage is good one -no zinc, an old cage can be
    deadly to a bird!
