It is currently winter where I live so I thought I’d buy the EZ harness and start training her so that when the warmer weather comes back, I can take her out with me. My question is how long does it typically...

    Super Attached, Attention-Demanding Sun Conure

    My 5 yr old sun conure, Mojo, always wants my undivided attention. With other people that she likes, she is mostly content to just cuddle or sit with them and groom herself. But whenever I have her out of her cage, she always wants me to be actively scratching/petting her, taking her outside...

    Mixed Messages! URGENT HELP!

    Hi everyone, so I have this recently adopted Sun Conure Mango. He was one of my class mates and I asked to take him in because they thought he was to loud. When he came home I saw in his cage there was no toys whatsoever so I instantly ordered them (most likely the reason he is loud). He liked...

    I recently picked up my three month old sun conure. I was told they were done with hand feeding and eat on their own. I forgot to ask if the people started my bird on pellets or seeds. Tata (sun conure I’m taking about) enjoys the chopped veggies I gave them but doesn’t touch the pellets. I...

    Is My Conure sick

    My sun conure is almost 2 and has recently started to pet himself out of the blue. Could he be sick or is this normal behavior? I would take him to the pet but he isn't friendly and we want to avoid him being stressed out. Thanks.

    Lesson: 19 years old Sun Conure looks acts healthy but isn't

    My Sun Conure named Putter is 19. He looks great. Behaves as he always has. He had not been to the vet for many years. I figured wing clipping and a look over we'd be good to go. The vet said, 19, wow that's old for a Sun. Really, when I got him as a baby his feathers all green, no bright colors...

    Difference between sun conure and gold capped?

    Just generally speaking, of course. I've heard the gold capped are more mellow. I'm looking for a cuddly Velcro bird ideally (I know you get what you get 😉). I currently have a grey. Does anybody know if there are many differences? Thank you:orange:
