    I got my Sunday conure “Tango” from a male breeder about two days ago, he’s ten weeks old and he’s friendly. He’s currently fallen asleep while I’ve been stroking his stomach or back and sits on my shoulder or accepts treats from me , but he screams when my boyfriend comes into the room (I think...

    Calvin's favorite trick!

    "I'm gonna sit on the front of the cage and pretend like I wanna come out, so when she opens the door, I'm can turn my head nearly upside down with a bewildered look on my face when she offers her hand and asks me to step up. I'M BRILLIANT!" Oh, Calvin! :orange:

    Just got a new Sun Conure and he doesn't like me :(

    Hello, I recently brought home a 3 month old Sun Conure. It's been a few days and he just doesn't seem to like me. Every time I open the cage to get him out, he runs to the back and away. I have still picked him up and tried to cuddle, but he just wants to get out of my hands. If I don't...

    Help picking a new parrot (maybe)

    Hi guys, recently I was offered a newly weaned sun conure with a twisted foot (he's was born that way, but other than that he is completely healthy). At the store, they usually go for 500, but I can have him for 200 because of his foot. I would love another parrot and a sun conure could get...

    I got a Sunburst Conure on the 4th of July. He is already spending 3 to 4 hours a day with me on my shoulder and lap. I just love him! However I notice some sneezing when he is preening or scratching his nose. He sneezes and some discharge will hit my face! But it seems to be clear. Like I...

    Could my Sun be pied? Also, question about odd tail feathers.

    I know very little about my Sun, Leo, except for that I bought him from a man who inherited him from his grandfather, who was the original owner and a breeder. Leo's said to be about five years old. He is banded, but the man I bought him from didn't have his disease testing or DNA sexing...

    Sun Conure won't get off cage.

    My female sun conure has been really tough to get out of her cage for the past month or two. I don't know what it is. Sometimes it can take me 5 or 10 minutes to get out of her cage. Other times I will just flat out give up. Once I get her out, she's is very sweet and doesn't seem to be afraid...
