Re: Help with sun conure purchase. Is this a red factor or no?

Breeding RF to RF does not guarantee 100% RF babies. You could get normal suns, RF suns and then "double factor" RF suns. This chicks *rarely* survive to 6 months old. In fact, most die before weaning or shortly after. Due to this, you only ever want to pair RF suns to normal suns. You can learn more about it here...

I would also question whether or not that chick is an RF baby. The video really doesn't help.... pictures might.

Re: Help with sun conure purchase. Is this a red factor or no?

This is not a red factor...you can tell because he is a little red but mostly orange on the head. Also letting a bay be outside (as others have said) is not okay and I do not think he is treating his bird properly and the poor baby looked scared. He has also lied to you and is seemingly very shady. I would maybe stop focusing on getting a red factor because they are hard to find (unless you are sure sure sure you have found a trusted breeder that you can actually visit in person) and maybe just get a regular sun conure because even though they are not "red" they are every bit as amazing. My Ollie is a regular sun conure and he is the best person I know.

Re: Help with sun conure purchase. Is this a red factor or no?

Agreed Sunnyclover.

I've always been partial to "normals". Peaches, my tiel, was a normal grey hen. While Skittles IS extremely colorful, it wasn't his plumage that drew me in. It was his personality. His personality is ENORMOUS! Often times, I think he has too much and wish he would just 'chill out' lol.

I have heard there are also genetic issues with breeding RFs? I'm not sure what they are, but that's what I've heard.
