    There should be no problem getting him a friend, but you should introduce them slowly. Start by putting them in separate cages and slowly move them closer and closer until they are next to each other. Watch their behavior towards each other for signs of aggression. Go slow (if needed) and they should begin to like each other over time. Be aware also that birds that have each other will usually become less attached to the human in their lives and more attached to each other.

I have a blue crown conure that is wonure and I thought I would like a mitred but I can't find any. I an thinking of maybe getting a sun conure instead I do have six cats and two dogs(papillons). The cats are scared to death of Gibby but I am worried about a smaller bird. I am almost always at home due the fact that I can't walk well. What kind if bird is recommended?

    You can get your bird sexed or a DNA scan or something like that.

    Go to the vet is the best way or you can wait for sexual maturity and see the behaviors displayed but this isn't advisable.

One of these conures appeared at my feeder in Sugar Land, TX about July 1, 2010. I see him several times a day. How do I search for his owner? If I can't find his owner, what should I do to help him? His tail appears to have been trimmed. Thank you.

Hi, I'm the newby. Friends mom long ago had a green conure that didn't like anyone but her. Soon after meeting him I won him over, he came my bud. I always gave him dried chilly peppers for treats. lol he was cool. Always wanted one since then. Bought a young one in Tijuana and the border patrol took him away, my bad didn't know he didn't speak English. Still want one seems the yellow headed or all green will be my choice. I will make a good home for one and give it attention but just don't have the big cash. Thinking about rescuing one but one or two babies would be nice. I hear they like company. Which conure do you recommend? I figure they are all pretty much the same. Saw a dusty one at petco for 600, he was cool kept rolling over onto his back like a dog. Looking for recommendations on which bird will make a good pet. Please help, whatever I get is what I'll stick with till death do us part. Talking would be very cool but being able to handle him would be better.

Can someone tell me what the average life span of a cherry head conure is. I have one that I raised from a baby and he's now 22 years old.

    I have my old man, affectionately named Baby, because I always called him my Baby, since 1980! I was told at that time he was a year or two years old. They, people who handle birds, tell me he is old! I know because he is almost totally blind, cannot fly any more, and must have some neurological problem because he gets the "shakes" that reminds me of older folks with "paulsey". Now he is getting to the point where he just wants to stay in his cage and wants me to just sit with him, and I put my fingers against the cage and he'll rest his beak between my two fingers. I love him dearly....we been through a lot together! I count each day with him as a present! My vet said to just keep him comfortable and bring him in only if he has a hard time breathing.......he says then he would put him to "sleep" because it would be cruel to have him breathing laboriously. Good Luck with your "guy". They can be very demanding, but are so lovable!

I have a 3 month old Jendaya Conure. When do they actually start talking or do I have to teach him or do they pick it up from anybody in the house?

    Say the same words over and over and over again and eventually they will learn. Ours said my daughters name but he taught himself that because we didn't try to teach it. Words that come out do not sound exactly like we do but if you listen, you can tell what they are saying. Good luck.

    My understanding with conures is that they are not great talkers, but it is not impossible. As with most birds, the trick with talking is repetition. Repeat whatever you want them to learn to say, over and over. It helps if it is a word or saying that can be repeated in a tone similar to sounds they already make. Try to keep the same tone every time. They are not really talking, they are mimicking the sounds that their "flockmates" are making. We have a 15 mo. old Jenday that we have had for five months now and, although she is not talking yet, she repeats a clicking/clucking sound back to me. I click/cluck my tongue three-four times and she will click back. Just remember, as with any training, consistency and repetition. Good luck!!
