I have Five Sun Conures. I started off with two and they had three eggs which all hatched and the babies are about 1 year old. Now they have laid another two eggs and I am worried, becuase that is enough birds for me. Does anyone want sun counures? or how i can stop them from breeding?

    Where are you located? I would love to have a sun conure but I have yet to convince my parents to let me get a parrot. How much are you selling them for?

    I would love to have another Conure. My husband and I are retired. We share "parental rights" of our sun conure, Lupe with our adult son. We are crazy about her ('her'...she's never been sexed). She loves to preen herself and US!! I believe she thinks my son's girlfriends bun is a bird nest. She flies to it frequently when Kayla is in the room. Message me back if you have a chance. Let me know if you have birds available. Also, update me on your original pair. Are they still doing well?

I got two sun Concures to breed and I'm happy to say that they had two eggs the first time and three the next time. They've hatched and are ready for their homes. One is very rare and instead of the normal sun orange color she is all white (but not albino) with pretty blue eyes

I have a sun conure named Sunny. He is 9 years old and is absolutely spoiled rotten. Whatever Sunny wants, Sunny basically gets. I sometimes feel like I'm raising a child. But I love him to death and he's so attached to me. I got him from a breeder in florida when he was just a couple months old. I would wrap him in a towel and cuddle with him. He loved it. His favorite place is inside my robe. He has a big parrot cage with different toys in it but he'd rather be outside the cage which I never mind. I actually feel bad leaving him in the morning when I go to work. But each and every morning he gives me a kiss goodbye and I tell him to be a good boy LOL recently I put his play perch/eating bowls on top of the cage. I have a blanket that I keep on top of it. It's his new little hiding place. My bf calls it his penthouse. He will stay up there for hours making all cuddling noises. I also put a wash cloth there for him to snuggle and play with and he loves biting it. I was wondering if I should leave him up there the whole night and have the cage open so he can freely go in and out. He's very smart and already goes in and out as he pleases but I've never left the cage open all night. If he had it his way, he'd sleep in bed with me haha

I believe that I have the most spoiled Sun Conure of them all. His name is Tuki, he is two and a half years old. For a bath I run water from the sink faucet, he walks down to my hands, lowers his head and crouches down-waiting. I then have to move my hands under the stream of water, back and forth, side to side, so that Tuki gets wet. He goes up and down my arm to give a quick shake and then back down for me to navigate his body for optimal shower enjoyment. upon bath completion, when we are both thoroughly saturated, it is time for drying. Tuki shakes once or twice then essentially sits and waits to be dried. we go into the bathroom so that i can dry him with a hair dryer. he sits on a curtain rod and positions himself, turning front and back, lifting his wings, making sure i don't leave any wet spots.

Last August a Sun Conure just appeared on a perch in our front yard. We live in Idaho, so this is very unusual. My husband approached the perch, talked to the bird and he came right to him, up his arm onto his shoulder. We live in a pretty small town and we let everyone we could think of know that we had this bird. We still have not received any response. However, in the meantime, we have totally fallen in love with the bird. His name is Buster but we wonder if his name s/b Bronco. As he says 'Bronco' all of the time. At first he loved us both, but in the past 3 months, he has decided I am ok if my husband is not home, but if my husband IS home he wants to attack me. We took him and had his wings clipped so that he could no longer fly to me and attack me. It has not calmed his attitude, but at least he can't get to me. I love this crazy little bird and I take care of it most of the time, feeding, cleaning up after, providing lots of treats, but I am not the chosen one at this time. I hope this gets better, but if not, I will just accept it as it is. We think someone may have released him and we have no idea how old he is. All I can say is he is loved and we are happy to make room in our life for him. Oh, and we are taking him on his first camping trip this weekend. We have a large 5th wheel and an extra cage. Wish us luck.

    Did the bird warm up to you again? This has just started happening with our Sun conure Mango. 5 days ago he didn't eat good and was acting funny, the next day he was fussy with me and squalking when he saw me but would still step up on my finger. Then the next day only wanted my husband and nipped at me if I tried to come near him. Yesterday he flew to me to bite and scratch me hard! First time that's ever happened. So I've been reading everything. Just want to know if this is how it's going to be from now on.

    my sister has a rescued sun conure with a seemingly crippled foot. she is in Iowa. are you interested? it is about 8 yrs old.

Hi Kathryn,
I regards to your question, I have a 3 year old Sun Conure named Gazoo, about the only thing I can get him to say is "Hello" which he learned all on his own when he was about 10 months old. Beside "Hello" he has learned no other words.

From my understanding Sun Conures are not very good talkers, but I have discovered they are good at mimicing sounds, and they are a ton of fun. Although Sunnies are not good talkers, but like all parrots they are very intelligent, and the more you hang out with your bird the more you will appreciate their intelligence, whether or not he/she ever learns to talk much.

Best Regards,

    Birds do that to show 'affection' towards one another or even certain people.
