Sun conures are active, affectionate, and even a bit destructive if you don't channel their energy into acceptable activities. Conures are easily tamed. These little parrots love to learn tricks. Most conures can learn a few words though their voices are high pitched. Consequently, what they are saying is often unclear.
Both male conures and female conures make equally good pets. A conure parrot that is kept singly will tame quickly and will soon learn new tricks. They like affection, and they also want to preen and be preened. You'll find that a conure parrot will enjoy your company in general.
These birds can live up to 30 years with the right care.
Origin of the Conure
Their native habitats are mostly in South and Central America. Conures have been imported into the United States since the late 1800s; however, by the early 1980s, importation had almost entirely been replaced by captive breeding programs. This, in turn, led to birds being sold that were inarguably healthier and better suited emotionally to captivity under handling and hand-feeding beginning at an early age.
The Conures thrive on friendship and companionship. They tame very quickly, and in no time, you can expect your particular species of Conure to be clamoring to be let out of his/her cage, sit on your hand and shoulder, pull toys, and imitate sounds. Some Conures can be nippy, especially with people they don't know, but a little careful training can rid most of the problem.
Conures are charming, enchanting, and beautiful birds. These birds are famous for their amusing nature and liveliness. Particular attention should be given to a pet Conure's hygiene and care, especially to its nails and beaks. They also require the right amount of exercise and activities so that they don't get bored. Conures love taking baths - it also keeps their feathers sleek and shiny.
