    Pawpaw's Diary

    Hello everyone! I am Pawpaw, a teenager sun conure. Right now, I am staying in my house and feeling bored. I hate that vet, why did she say my human friend needed to leave me alone to rest for a week? A WEEK? I want to play with my friend! There are toys in my house, the swing is quite fun, but...

    Can't wait to get my little sun conure! [Update: arrived!]

    I am living in China and we have strict rules to parrots: basicly only budgie, cockatial and some species of love birds are allowed. Fortunately, these years more kinds of parrot are permitted for breeders such as green cheek conures. However, I was really impressed by sun conures since I first...

    Is this ok?

    my male conure enjoys sitting on me and recently has gotten very comfortable…. too comfortable. Hes falling asleep! Though its cute I want to make sure im not re-enforcing bad/frowned upon behavior by letting him continue.

    Sun conure screaming/biting when playing instruments. Seeking advice

    Hey everybody! Brand new to this website. My girlfriend and I just adopted a rescue sun conure from the SPCA and we adore her. She is extremely cuddly (especially with me) and loud (to be expected from a sunny). We've had her for about 3 weeks, and one issue I have noticed with her is that she...

    Sun Conure Panic

    Hey, I'm looking for some advice on my sun conure Gilly. I think he has separation anxiety or some sort of extreme bond to me, as when I am not home he will call for me non-stop as if he is in a panic. I do spend a lot of time with him, he is essentially out with me all the time when I am at...

    Sun conure wing feathers appear lighter, aging or illness?

    My boy Sunny has had some discolouration in some of his Wong feathers, it's been a very slow gradual progression and I'm not sure it's actually getting worse or not. He's 12, so not quite a spring chicken, but I wouldn't say he's old either. He had a yeast infection early this year which cleared...

    I may need to rehome my Sun Conure, I feel hopeless and desperate.

    I have a Sun Conure named Gilly who was rehomed to me at the beginning of the year. He is 4 years old and he is the love of my love, he has the biggest personality and is extremely affectionate and loving. But like all Suns, he can be quite loud at times and needs lots of attention. I'm living...

Now I have a 54 day old sun conure and he has 2 formula feedings a day and I put some chop and pellets in his cage which he sometimes eats but not a lot (And of course a water dish).

    Sun conure not willing to take handfeedings or eat

    My sun conure is about 50 days old. I brought it when it was around 30 days. I use the Nutribird A21 formula to handfeed. As you can see it has grown up quite well. But it is now unwilling to take the formula. Moreover, it cannot self feed yet. What can I do to make things better? The first...

    Just found a Sun Conure - has strange wing flipping

    Just about an hour ago, I heard an incessant loud calling outside my apartment, I decided to take a look and true enough, it was a bird. A Sun Conure to be precise. It looked ragged and scared. I gave it some food, which it readily accepted. The bird is clearly very tame and now refuses to leave...
