Sun Conure

Origin:  Brazil

Lifespan:  25-40 yrs

Height:  10”-13”

Talking:  Not the loudest of all the conures, but will do their share of screeching.  They are not known to be the best talkers but they are still vocal.

Personality:  These birds are playful clowns, lying on their backs or dangling from a rope toy, they are very amusing. They are also easily trained and are extremely affectionate and cuddly and will be deeply loyal to a gentle owner. This is a good family bird and will not “turn” on family members if they are kind and attentive to the bird.

Food:  Parrot mix, cockatiel mix, fruits/veggies

Care:  The sun conure is no messier than smaller birds and loves to be outside of the cage for playtime. A sun conure loves its owner’s attentions and dose not like being left alone. It will appreciate another sun conure as a “comrade” and will not lose its pet quality if the owners are attentive to both birds. Because it’s in the Aratinga family, it can be paired with a jenday, mitred, nanday, gold-capped, blue crowned, or another Aratinga, but not for breeding purposes. These birds should be exclusively platonic pals.
