Care and feeding: A roomy cage is required unless the bird is to be let out for extended periods. Many birds can spend most of their time on a play pen or parrot perch. They eat a variety of seeds, nuts, fruits, and commercial pellets, as well as the same nutritional foods humans eat.
Breeding/Reproduction: These birds breed easily in captivity. A young hen usually only lays 2 eggs, and the clutch gets bigger as she ages. Eventually the hen will lay 3 to 5 eggs, which hatch in 25 days. The best breeding box is a deep nest box, 41" x 9"x 6.3".
Potential Problems: As with many Aratinga species, Golden-capped Conures can be noisy, though not nearly as noisy as most Aratinga species.
