I am babysitting my sister and bro in law's conure "Dipsy" for 4 months while they are in Iraq. I have to say, he is an absolute joy! He says about 4 words, but we are teaching him another one as a surprise. Hee Hee. He also LOVES car rides! Wonderful, and Dipsy is quiet and only "poops" (one of his words) in a designated area of his cage. I would like to get one, but I am afraid it would not be as well behaved as Dipster.

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.

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.

Hi my sunny is 2 months old and i have him for a week. His name is Sam and he is so adorable. When i come from work in the evening, as i walk through the door i will say " Hallo Sam, where is moms baby" and he will make a screaching loud noise. I think he knows who i am. When he is on my shoulder nobody can take him from because he bites them. When he is in his cage then only can you take him. I love him to bits and when i am at work a miss him big time. I even have him on my PC as a background image, not even did have my boyfriend on my PC. Suns are the most loveble, adorable, cant get enough of birds.

I have a sun conure of my own. Her name is Skittles. Although she has a habit of screaming alot, she is a great bird. She has a unique and fun personality, and she is always doing new, funny things that keep me laughing. Skittles gets along great with my green cheek conure, Cheeky, but happens to be rather jealous of my Jenday Conure, TikTik. But all in all, sun conures make great pets, though their characteristic screaming cane be a little annoying.

hello, ive had my sunny conure for about a year now. He is simply adorable, his name is cracker, but my parterner and i call him mwat-mwacks cos thats the sweet little sound he makes. Apparently Cracker has been left in a cage for most of his life (he was about seven years old when i got him), which wouldnt surprise me as he was desperate for attention when i first got him and he could barely fly, and he was scared of his cage. I personally think he was mistreated by a man as he genuinely doesnt like men, although he is getting better. Some people think that craker is spoiled because he has his own minature bedroom (made from an old sofa), where he sleeps and goes whenever he wants to have a good chewing session (this stopped him chewing all my clothes up) he absolutely loves it! Cracker has a thing for towels, he despises them. Whenever my boyfriend or i get out of the bath he starts attacking (especially my boyfriend Lee). He can get very jealous of Lee and bite him viciously when we are on our own, but just like a child hes as good as gold when we`re with other people. Despite crakers funny ways we love him and are proud of his progress!

A week ago today,on 10/26/05, I adopted a 5 yr old male Sun Conure named "Chili". He is so beautiful. I had met Chili a few months ago, but at the time did not think I wanted another bird as I already have a lovebird, a parrotlet and a Mexican Aztec Conure living in the house with me; and 14 parakeets that live in an outdoor aviary, in addition to 2 dogs, 1 cat, 2 turtles, and 3 sugargliders. However, I fostered two sun conures for 9 weeks whose owners house was flooded from Hurricane Katrina. I enjoyed them so much that after a month of fostering them I sent in my application to adopt Chili. I had to go visit him at his foster home so that they could see he was responding to me. then I had to undergo a home visit to make sure my house was safe for Chili. I was nervous until I was approved to adopt Chili. He's settling in nicely, I can't wait until he feels completely at home so that his full personality will shine.

I have had my Sun Conure for only a couple of weeks and wish I knew earlier what fun-loving, gorgeous birds they are, as then I would have gotten one years ago already. I've named mine Sunny and he is such a joy to have around, always busy and always wanting attention. He gets apple, celery, banana and either naartjie or orange in the morning. he has his seed and nut mixture throughout the day and then has mixed vegetables (carrot, mealie, peas and beans) just before bed time. He is starting to say "Hello" but the cutest is when I talk to him and he chuckles. I am really enjoying him very much, and would recommend a Sun Conure anyday.
