so as some of you may know , i visited the pet shop today , and instead of a conure , blue fronted amazon , or eclectus , i fell inlove with a chattering lory
here in brazil they are called , loris amor amor , he was screaming for my attention , and even stepped up onto my hand , the breeder said he looked very comfortable around me , he breeder said it looked like he picked me haha
i just havent researched a lot about this breed , and would love to have some information , sorry for bombarding you guys with so many question ,i just dont want to make any mistakes !
do you think it would be a good choice for me ?

Question which parrot breed ? what are your experiences with your parrots ?

i fell in love with the chattering lory , and the eclectus parrot , i also like the conures and blue fronted amazons a lot ! i just have no idea which breed to take ...
i like birds the size of the amazon , is the chattering lory around the same size ?
or the eclectus ?
and which breed is "cuddly"
i have lots of time for a parrot , and plan on training it (flighted as well )
what are your experiences with these breeds , and which ones do you recommend ,
you can also recommend other breeds ( i do not mind special diets )
i would like an intelligent parrot , medium to large , cuddly , i know a parrot varies from parrot to parrot , but i would like to hear the experiences you have had with some of the breeds
and i know a perfect parrot doesnt exist , but i know that the parrot i will pick will be perfect for me , doesnt matter what breed , i would just like a breed that is affectionate
i like rainbow lorikeets as well , but they are a little small arnt they ?
anyway , i would just love to hear your experiences with the parrot breds you have
(specially someone with a chattering lory , not a lot of people seem to have them , and they really caught my eye )

Re: which parrot breed ? what are your experiences with your parrots ?

Lories and lorikeets aren't super popular probably because of their liquid messy poops? They have a specialized diet too.

Keep in mind from asking others or reading, you can only get general characteristics of a species (it's 'species' not "breed" as domestically bred animal varieties are called).
There are a lot of variables in individual personality. For example, I've had two Bronze Winged Pionus before, and Raven is SO different from the last one, they don't even act like the same species, let alone the same kind!

If your heart is not set on a particular species, I'd just go and see some birds and see what you like, and what likes you back! Good luck.

Even individual opinions will vary so the choice is up to you to make as you need to visit each individual bird you have it listed and see what grabs you. Just a reminder like it was mentioned already that Lory/Lorikeets are diet specific birds but so is the eclectus parrot. They need to be fed certain diet or they will not do well.

Re: Sun conures vs Jenday conures

Big thing from suns/jenday Vs green cheeks is the noise. Some people will say that gram for gram, the suns are loudest parrot out there for their size, and in my personal experience Jendays aren't that far behind.
Having cared for both(suns and Jendays) there's not many HUGE differences I can name. Every bird is unique and that's about it.
My green cheek is loud, but it's a more frequent loud in longer intervals but the volume isn't intense. Never had a complaint in my apartment. Both birds are playful, awesome in general and though suns are known to be the 'clown' conures, green cheeks are playful and have their own spunk!
Over all I can't say enough good things about all 3 birds. It's all about spending time with each of them and figuring out what works best for your lifestyle.

Re: Sun conures vs Jenday conures

Same bird, different wing colors. That's about it. And I had both.

Re: Sun conures vs Jenday conures

Love my Sunny, he's playful and at times, cuddly. My GCC is feisty and manipulative. They're both quite intelligent. Love them both. Good luck choosing.

Re: Sun conures vs Jenday conures

In my experience (I have worked with sun, jenday and gcc) is that there are better conure species out there. I love the halfmoon, dusky and larger conures. They seem to be as sweet and playful without the in yourface attitude of a gcc and usually not screamers like suns, yes they can get loud but sun screams are something all their own'

Re: Sun conures vs Jenday conures

the main difference between sun conures and jendays was the colour i thought, i mean i think it would depend on the individual bird in regards to exactly how loud the bird is. in many ways i find that our green cheek is more into noise pollution than our sun conure, sure the sun conure is loud but he's only occasionally loud, where as the green cheek is frequently loud.
