Hi, I own a 13 month old DNA sexed male sun conure named Besley. Besley loves to play games, he hands me his foot for me to shake. Besley can laugh and he can say WHAT. I got Besley when he was 3 months old. All i can say is i love him very much but he can be very noisy and annoying but i wouldn't trade him for the world. Word of warning to people, please do your research before buying these wonderful birds. They might be pretty, but make sure your neigbours and family agree to the noise. I have seen too many people selling there sun conures or giving them to rescues because of their noise level.

hey my name is kaylie. i have a gold cap conure named lilo. he is almost 1 years old now. he is actually sharing a cage with a jenday conure and a quaker parakeet. he is the main protecter of them all.lilo is a very fun person to watch take a bath. lilo likes to fluff up and splash everyone. lilo doesnt take crap from no one not even the 2 cats. he chases them away from the quaker and the jenday since the quaker and the jenday are babies.

My Nanday Conure, Karly, and I had a rough start. He was always biting me. I would get so frustrated that I would just give him a time out. I know that yelling, even if I am in pain, makes it worse. I tried every thing. So, I showered him with love and soft baby talk. Well, that was it. He loves to be cooded and talked to like the "beautiful baby" he is and when I treat him so swell, I receive the same treatment in return. They have a gentle side to them in which they love to be treated like a baby. Try it and you will be rewarded.

I just got my breeding pair of Green Cheek Conures. They're a hoot! They're louder than cockatiels, but they use their voices less often. They're very intellegent, too. They're always looking at stuff or playing, or flinging food at each other. My pair isn't tame, being parent fed, but they come rushing over once I feed them and eagerly dig into whatever food I offer them. I look foreward to seeing their first chicks. I hear this species is easy to breed and the new mutations out there are absolutely stunning!

I HAVE A SUN CONURE NAMED SUNSHINE. DOESN'T TALK YET. MAKES A LOT OF NOISE. I SAY SHE GIVES KISSES AND LAUGHS WHEN I DO. SHE LIKES TO FALL ASLEEP ON MY SHOULDER. IF I'M IN ANOTHER ROMM AND TAP ON SOMETHING SHE TAPS BACK. SHE KNOWS WHEN WE GET HOME SHE STARTS TO SQUAK. I SAY HELLO SUNSHINE AS I OPEN THE DOOR AND SHE GETS LOUDER. SHE CAN'T WAIT TO GET OUT OF HER CAGE. I LOVE HER SO MUCH.

I purchased a 6 month old GC Conure four months ago and though he was rather untame when he came home, he quickly settled into a routine with some patience from his companion humans. By "triangulating" with my border collie, Blackie, with whom I carry on many albeit one- sided conversations, Ariel began to pick up speech and though his voice is gravelly, he has an active vocabulary of over 70 words, mostly formed into phrases such as his first one: "Come see Blackie." I tried to turn all "contact calling" when I left the room into intelligible but simple conversation, and now get to answer Ariel's queries about what I am doing: eating, cooking, cleaning, laundry, etc. I'm delighted with Ariel's interest in language, though I read conures are not known for their language ability. Apparently, Ariel had not read such information. If you want to stimulate language, I recommend an involvement of a third party (even a dog)in the process, and teach in context and as if you are teaching a small child. Ariel's favorite word: Beautiful!

My blue-crowned conure is named Pauli. He is identical to the BCC in the movie Pauli which motivated me to buy him. He is part of our small family and goes everywhere we go. When we go on holiday we only go to places where he is welcome. At this stage he is our only child and I can't imagine my life without him. He says "mamma", "pappa", "hallo pauli" and " koppie krap" which means scratch my head in Afrikaans. he also makes kissing noisess and he laughs. He loves drinking and eating anything we drink and eat. Even before a chocolate is unwrapped he will try and chew through the wrapping. He also loves riding on a shoulder and playing with my hair. I love him dearly.

I have a GC Conure named Shorty. He is two and a half and going on one, its seems like he's going to be a crazy baby forever. I don't recommend conures to anyone who doesn't have the time to spend on them as they are very sensitive. Shorty is noisy in the mornings, he chews anything he can get his beak on and he messes everywhere. He drives my husband wild with his irratic moods swings, one second he's a cute cuddly little baby the next he's an evil aggressive little monster but I wouldn't trade him for anything. He is such a playful little man, wrestling like a kitten, sometimes getting a little too rough but nothing a good talking to doesn't fix. He responds to most commands but deliberatly ignores the ones he doesn't agree with like "Shorty, leave the dog alone". We recently got a great dane pup named Sampson who is doomed to a life of harrasment from Shorty. Getting the dog really put Shorty's nose out of joint as he is no longer the center of attention. It has taken lots of time since Sampson arrived to bring him around to the idea of having a dog in our lives but now I think he appreciates another victim to annoy.

My Green cheek's name is Pete. He was given to my grandma and when she became unable to care for him I volunteered to take him. In all we have had him in the family for 8 years, but we do not know how old he is. He loves to hide under my hair and will even fall asleep under there when I'm holding still. Pete is potty trained. That seems to surprise everyone the most. He prefers not to go in his cage and he will wait until you put him over a garbage can or set him on the toilet seet and say "go potty". He only screeches in the morning to tell you he is ready to come out of his cage and go potty. We love him.
