I have a Sun Conure named Kiwi. She is very tame as well. Unfortunately, she does not talk at all! I wish I could teach her to talk. Kiwi is very affectionate. She loves to give kisses, cuddle under my chin, crawl in my shirt, and nibble my ear. When I laugh she likes to laugh too; that is about the only noise she makes, besides yelling for attention. The funniest thing she does is peep her head around the corner when I am in another room. She is always curious as to where I am in the house.

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.

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.

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,

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?
