I bought a nanday conure from petco in August 2011. The stores location is in Midlothian Turnpike in Midlothian, Virginia. She died not even 6 weeks later. I came home from work one day and she was lying in the bottom of her cage. She had seemed to be healthy when I bought her and was only 6 months old.
My family became very attached to her to include my 8 year old son. After dealing with him crying all night my frustrations grew. I called petcos general number because it was after hours. The woman told me she was sure that something could be done considering we had her such a short time. The next morning I called the store and they tell me after 15 days there is nothing they can do! The bird was $450. After buying a cage and all the accessories I paid over $600 for her.
I am furious. I bought the sweetest bird who they told me was healthy and would live for 25 years. I took wonderful care of her and became attached and she drops dead 6 weeks later. I will never step foot in a petco again.
Monetary Loss: $600.
