Fellow Bird Fanciers,
I love my little Jo Bird. She is a 7 yr old Sun Conure. She can say about 15-20 words and make several sounds. She is on the top of the literal "pecking order" around our house. She has her bluff in on husband, kids, dogs and the cat...They make wide circles around her cage. She loves to show off and attention. She is an excellent doorbell, telephone and alarm clock. I never have to worry about any one sneaking up on me. She is a watch bird. If you are considering a conure as a pet- bear in mind they can be very LOUD! Patience and ability to endure screaming bouts are a must but well worth it in entertainment and returned affection.

To "mongo" although i have heard conures are some what terriorial my conure lives with another bird, a cockatiel, and they are the best of friends. give it a try and see how they get along.
we just got our sun conure. his name is max and he is our first one. i love him so much. he gives me kisses and is so funny when you make him mad, he squaks and acts like he is a big bird and trys to give you a love bite. he is so pretty to. he has a yellowish orange red head with blue/green wings and body, along with tail and he has checkered pants that are red and green. he is such a sweet bird and we are so happy to welcome him in to our new home.
I have a very friendly sun conure his name is Connunbutses. It is a funny name but I like it very much. He is very tame, he will lie upside down and play dead in my hand, he says "ouch" and mutters all sorts of other noises. I have quite a few birds but he is my overall favourite bird.
My sun conure is 5 months old. His name is Fruitloop. He already says papa and hello. He hardly ever screams except when he gets real excited or hears another bird outside. Sometimes he calls in the morning when we get up or just before bedtime. Most of the other sun conures I have seen scream alot more than he does.
Can my lovebird leaves in the same BIG cage with my new Sun conure?
How do I teachmy conure to talk, he is about 11 week old?
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.
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?
