Small conures are cuddly and playful birds that love as much attention as can be provided to them. They can have an attitude, and are sometimes considered “nippy”. They are not necessarily the best choice for young children, as a more mature owner will often have an easier time training the bird out of “nippy” behaviour. Like with any bird, its behaviour is a near-direct reflection of what the owner puts into the relationship. The main diet should consist of pellets as well as some fruits and veggies. Seed should be given as a treat, and sunflower seed and peanuts should never be given. These birds thrive with foraging toys that can stimulate their brain while you're not home.
