Hi Kathryn,
I regards to your question, I have a 3 year old Sun Conure named Gazoo, about the only thing I can get him to say is "Hello" which he learned all on his own when he was about 10 months old. Beside "Hello" he has learned no other words.

From my understanding Sun Conures are not very good talkers, but I have discovered they are good at mimicing sounds, and they are a ton of fun. Although Sunnies are not good talkers, but like all parrots they are very intelligent, and the more you hang out with your bird the more you will appreciate their intelligence, whether or not he/she ever learns to talk much.

Best Regards,
Bill

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?
