    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.

    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:

    Sun Conure Gender

    I've been reading the differences between male and female Sun Conures and would like to try and guess your DNA sexed Sun Conures. The pictures must be very clear, the bird should be standing regularly, and include the whole body. I've attached a picture as reference.
