Noise Level & Talking Ability
The Sun Conures are known as loud birds. The bird has a very loud call, and if not trained properly, the bird will be loud more often. Sun Conure owners say it is possible to train the birds to be quieter.
General plumage yellow; forehead, sides of head, abdomen, and lower back with variable orange tinge; under tail-coverts green with pronounced yellow tinge; median and greater upper wing-coverts as well as under tail-coverts green with yellow edging; secondary-coverts green with yellow tips; outer webs of primary-coverts blue; primaries green with blue tips; secondaries green; upper side of tail olive-green with blue tips; underside of tail and flight-feathers blackish; periophthalmic ring whitish; iris dark brown; bill blackish; feet grey.
The Sun Conures are very playful and entertaining birds and can be trained easily. Sun Conures require a lot of attention - they are social birds that need interaction with their owners. The sun conure is no messier than smaller birds and loves to be outside of the cage for playtime.
Pellets should make up 60% of the diet. Fresh fruits and veggies, and other healthy chop mixes should make up 30% of the diet, and seed should only make up 10% as a treat.
Sun Conures require a medium-large cage to accommodate their long tail. Sun Conures are very active birds that need room to roam and climb in their cage. These birds do best with a wide range of materials for toys and perches. Both destructible (wood, cardboard, seagrass, etc.) and indestructible (plastic, metal, acrylic, etc.) toys should be given to maximize enrichment. Perches should vary in material (cotton/rope, wood, cement, swings, ladders, etc.) and size to promote grip strength.
