Anyone own a Golden Conure?

Hello, we are anxiously waiting for our new Golden Conure, Lucy, to arrive next week. See pics in my album. I'd like to hear from anyone that owns a Golden on anything good, bad, what to expect. We are purchasing her from a breeder that we trust and bought from before. Lucy is really sweet. I've read that the Goldens are quieter than other Conures. Is that true? Also, we have a Meyer and an Ecletus. Both are really quite. We feed both fruit, veggies, pellets, seeds, boiled eggs, pasta, and other good whole foods. Nothing processed. Is the Conures diet the same?

Thanks in advance!

Re: Anyone own a Golden Conure?

I don't, but I have just googled them... They're certainly a beautiful bird, and more quiet than your normal conure... In many places they also require a permit to keep them - not sure if this applies to you...

Sounds like a good diet for a conure. Congrats on getting a golden conure. They are beautiful. I wanted one, but they are so darn expensive. Please post pics when you get your new addition.

Such cute pictures! I can't wait to see more once you get her! Diet sounds great. I don't have a golden myself, can't say much otherwise.

CONGRATULATIONS!

Re: Anyone own a Golden Conure?

Wow, congrats! They're pretty expensive where I live... Did you know they're endangered in the wild? I have heard that they are quieter than other birds, and also very snuggly.

She looks adorable in the pics! But of course, I want to know more about your Meyers :-) He looks adorable, and I'm not biased, I SWEAR.

Yeah, she was expensive, (2k), but she melted our hearts with her cuddles, hugs, and sweetness! Yes, I know they are endangered. I'm treading on uncharted waters here because I can't find too many people that own one. We seen a lot of videos on Youtube that are really good. We can't wait! We should get her next Thursday, 12/1. Hopefully. That's when she will be off formula for 2 weeks, and if her weight stays up. I'll post pictures when she comes home!

My Meyers, Eddie! Eddie was our first bird. I originally bought him for my daughter when she was 10. She's 14 now. Even though Eddie was sweet and hand raised, this was my daughter's first experience with a bird. As he grew older and his nips got stronger, she backed off and I took over. So he is now my bird and I am the only one who can handle him. But I can hold him in both my hands and kiss him all over. He will bite me, but only when he is trying to get his own way. Like, "no, I don't want to go back in my cage". But he is my baby and I love him to death. My daughter seen how great it was to get along with Eddie, but she was scared of him, and by then, Eddie only wanted me. So that's when we searched for another bird for her. And we decided on the male Eclectus. We got Izzie this year, 2011, and it is working out wonderfully! They are two peas in a pod! When we thought we were done, we seen Lucy (Golden Conure) at our breeders and fell head over hills. We just had to have her. So Lucy will be shared by me and my daughter. But I think she will capture the heart of my husband too! So now we are done for sure! Ha ha!

Re: Anyone own a Golden Conure?

I own one..My Golden is so friendly..Whenever people see both my birds or I tell them what kinds of birds I have they always think my Golden is the loud one but my alex is the loud one. My Golden hardly makes any noise or flock calls only when he or she hears me when I come home and when I give my golden food thats it. Also my golden learned how to say step up because I always tell her or him that and hello.

And for diet I also feed my birds the samething.

Re: Anyone own a Golden Conure?

Thank you for the response! We picked up our baby 4 days ago! She is such a joy! So far she has not made hardly any noise. She is more quiet than our Meyers and Ecletus, and they are quiet. She is so funny, and likes to sun bathe. And she's not needy. She likes to be with everyone but she can hang out on her own, on the playstand, in her cage, by the window in the sun, etc. We love her!
