About The Sun Conure
Considered to be the most beautiful of the Conures, the Sun Conure is a friendly, medium sized parrot. When born baby Sun Conures, also known as juveniles, are an olive green shade and it is not until they fully mature that they become the yellow and orange shades they are known for. Sun Conures can live between the ages of 25 and 30 years and are about 12 inches in length from head to tail when fully grown.
Sun Conures are easy to train, affectionate and love the attention of their owners. They are not timid animals and will not hesitate to let their owners know if they are not receiving the amount of attention they feel is adequate. They will do this with a loud shrill shriek and have even been given the nickname of watch dog since they are known to alert their owners of important situations with the same sound.
In the wild Sun Conures feast on a diet of nuts, fruits and seeds. In captivity a diet mainly of pellets is best but an occasional treat of nuts and fruits will be appreciated.
Sun Conures are naturally curious birds and enjoy a fair amount of exercise. When considering a cage it is always best to go bigger, at the very least the bird enough room to flap its wings is needed. Out of cage time is also important as a well exercised bird is a healthy bird.
Sun Conures are fun birds and are easy to train but they will need a lot of your time and attention so keep this in mind when considering them.
