Acquired: Worked with pet (didn’t own)
Posted Sep 25, 2014
Sun Conures are beautifully colored birds. But be prepared, sun conures are also known for their vocalizing. Lots of vocalizing. Loud vocalizing :). They are intelligent, playful, and if it is the only pet it should be a little quieter. They bond strongly with their family and need to be interacted with a lot. This is not a bird that can stay caged up with no interaction, other than feeding.
They can make a good family pet because they are sociable, upbeat and have an affectionate personality.
They enjoy playing on the floor, and are fun to watch roaming around on the ground (make sure they are protected from other pets though). They pick up words and phrases pretty quickly.
But be aware, they can be biters, especially when young and if they haven't been properly handled.
