Hi i have an 9 month old sun conure named Rocco. He is very loud at times but lots of fun. He is more playful than my cockatiels. I enjoy having a conure.

I've had Connie for 10 years now..still has the energy and ambition, hasn't mellowed a bit. Always the escape artist and jewelry thief. My 10 year old nephew has been carrying her around daily since the day he could reach the cage. Friends were suprised to see 2/3 year old playing with Connie like a teddy bear. They're best buddies {plus Tyler has his own personal "birdy" guard}. Connie's very protective. Hope to have her forever.

Jimmy, our Jenday Conure, joined our family nearly ten years ago and he is happiest when being held. When we get home, his cage is immediately opened and he spends all of his time on the perch above it. His cage has to be in the kitchen where he can observe and be a part of all activities. He has a perch with a suction cup on it so that he can take showers with us and it is so much fun. He sings his very best and enjoys himself fully. He is always the life of the party, and even the most timid new visitors become huge fans of his by the visits end. Whenever anyone comes to our house, they make a beeline for Jimmy. He is a spectacular bird, so much personality, love, and intelligence!

My Orange Fronted Conure died yesterday, his name was Polly and he was very special to me and my Family. It was an unexpected death and I wish I knew why he passed. He was very overprotective of me and he didn't like anyone to get near me especially not my boyfriend, he always gave me lots of kisses and showed me lots of love. He was a very special part of all our lives. He use to sleep, eat, play, and even take showers with us. I honestly think he thought he was a human. He will truly be missed. R.I.P. Polly

I am owned by three Jenday Conures, Fender and Gibson(the twins!) and Beep, our newest arrival. The twins are 4 years old, and were parent raised. They are sweet, and clownish, but not into cuddling.... They talk all the time, and are incredibly smart. They enjoy being with us, but prefer not to be "held", would rather just sit with us. Beep is younger, about a year and a half, and was hand fed as a baby. He is a lot more interested in being held, and cuddles some. All three came from environments where not all of their needs were met, and so we are working through several behavior issues with each bird, but they are incredible animals, great pets for someone who has patience and time to devote to them, and very intelligent.

I have a peach fronted conure, her name is Gizmo. She was given to me by a co-worker that told me the bird was just too mean, this co-worker also told me the bird was male, anyway both proved to be wrong. Gizmo took a lot of time to come around to me (about 3 months), she was just so scared and would bite. I think she was just not cared for properly and possibly abused. But after a lot of time and patience and lots of love, she is the greatest, sweetest little soul. She talks a little, says "hello", "oh baby bird",and "thank-you". Oh, after having her for about 3 years, she laid eggs, that is how we found out he was a she. So now she is a very loved part of our family. I am so happy with her, and would tell anybody wanting a parrot (that is prepared to care for one properly) to get a peach fronted conure.

My parents bought their peach front conure Peaches in 1988. He was about 2 years old then, making him at least 20 years old now.

He is a joy and I miss him so much. He has learned about 5-10 words, shouts "Hello!" when the phone rings, and even though I moved out years ago he still calls out my name when a car pulls up to the house.

He loves warm baths (hold him under a warm gentle dribble of water in the sink), and also loves apples and oranges. He can get ornery once in a while, if you play rough with him or if he is hungry.

I can't say enough good things about Peaches and what a great pet conures make. My wife just dropped a hint that she might like to try our own, I hope she means it because I can't wait to bring home our own friend.

I brought home my Patagonian Conure, Lucy, about five months ago. It was the best decision I ever made. She is so social and cute. She goes to everyone and rarely bites. I've already adapted to the noise. Her cuteness makes up for it. Lucy loves to climb her cage, throw her toys, and take showers with me. On hot days she takes bathes in her water dish and sprays water across the whole kitchen! It's really funny to watch. She is very social, but doesn't talk very much. She just makes little noises;but she's only about ten months and I heard they reach maturity at two. I highly reccomend Patagonian conures for people who are willing to put out a lot of love!!! They put a smile on your face and they're worth every penny!!!

I have an 8 month old Sun Conure called Cheeko, and I have to say he is a better guard dog than my dog. He starts to shout as soon as he hears our car pull into the drive or anyone knock at the door. He flies to your hand when you click your fingers and rolls over on his back so you can stroke his belly. I never knew a bird could be so enjoyable.

A while ago we decided we wanted another bird (We've only had cockatiels and parakeets) and one morning we saw a kids' pet show on TV that had Caiques...after finding out that they were quiet and playful (we live in an apartment), we decided that's what we wanted! So that afternoon, we set out to find one. We stopped by a few pet stores that had nothing interesting. Then we walked into the bird room of one pet store and there he was. We didn't even know what kind of bird he was at first...but as we walked up to his cage...he ran accross the bottom to us and flipped over on his back and kicked his feet. "We want that one!" And that's how we got "Baby", our little Green Cheeked Conure. He is a RIOT! He loves to swing from the venietion blind cords...he loves to take showers with us screaming "BATH! BATH! BATH!" the whole time! He can say his name and also "Pretty Bird". He likes to sit on the curtains and look out the window and say "Pretty, Pretty" and is just too content to sit with us at the table and share our meal (and I do mean share OUR meal...he's not happy with a piece of our food of his own...he likes to eat what we're eating and right off our plate...too cute!). He loves to slide down anything! We're looking for a small sliding board for him now. He runs back and forth across the back of our couch, stopping only to tug at hes favorite blanket or roll down the couch...yes, he does this on purpose. He's the perfect apartment bird since he's small and quiet...even when he screams, it's not at all loud. He's also rather neat, doesn't throw seeds...and he does his best to be potty trained. He's parakeet size with a macaw's brain! He's perfect!
