I recently bought a Sun Conure. His name is Harley. He is six years old and a lot of fun! I was wondering how do you go about teaching them to talk? Do you start with simple phonetics like "Uh Oh"? How often do you need to repeat the same thing?

I have a young 4 month old green cheek named Joey, He is very hesitant of water and often reuses to bath himself. Leading me to mist him with water, as a reaction to this he often just stands their in the water mist. Or gets scared and tries to run away. Anyone have any hints for me to get my little bird to like the water.

I bought my dusky conure....Snoopies.........in May and he has brought such joy to our home!!
He loves to cuddle and nap on me while I watch television..he also enjoys kisses and hanging around on my shoulder for hours.........Such a loveable bird.....truly a treasure...........If left alone in a room....Snoopies will chirp until someone comes to get him!
These birds are so affectionate it is incredible and difficult to believe unless you see it for yourself...

I have more of a question than a comment. Two years ago my son almost died on us and had to have a blood transfusion, Well anyway every since then my nanday attacks him when ever he sees him and i can't seem to get him to stop, can you tell me why he is doing this and maybe how i can stop it, It has been two years and i love my bird very much but i have to protect my son.

I have the same bird, i got him from my sister, she couldn't take his screeming any more, and i felt sorry for him. No he lives with me and like to play a lot takes a shower with me every morning. His cages is always open so he flyes everywere in the house, and loves it, dosen't screm that much. I am very happy with him. Needs a lot of attention. Read a lot about those birds before buying!!!

You asked how long Greencheeks are expected to live. I just read on the internet 20 to 25 years or more. The info was from a Ph.D. Biologist writing specifically on the Greencheek.

I have a nanday and a sun and find them to be wonderful pets. I think the nanday is a male although I have no idea whether the sun is male or female. They do like to yell in the morning if they can't see me but I never yell back or it gets worse. We trained my sun to yell Quietly which means she imitates my son, imatating her. More like saying quack instead of actually quacking. As far as the comment before this one, I would try to use gloves and get the bird used to the finger. I would imagine age might be a factor if they never took the bird out

Ihave a Nanday Conure which was give to me by the neighbors. They said he was too noise to have in their apartment. He is very smart and after only a week is repeating things I say. However, I cannot get near him. He has consistantly bitten me and has recently taken a "chunk" out of my finger. Not sure what to do.
