Physical Description: The Blue-crowned Conure was the star of the popular movie, “Paulie.” They are almost entirely green, but as their name suggests, develop a blue “crown” on their foreheads. Their upper portion of their beak is horn colored while the lower portion is typically black. They also have a bare white patch of skin around their eyes, which is typical of Conures. For a bird of such simple coloring, they are surprisingly popular.
Average Lifespan: 15 – 20 years
Sexing: Sexing these birds requires a DNA test, as they are not sexually dimorphic and you cannot tell the sex just by looking at them.
Origin: South America (Specifically, Brazil and Argentina)
Trainability: Blue-crowned Conures can be excellent pets when they are hand-raised and socialized properly. They are not as nippy as some other Conure species can be, but they are known for being a little bossy. For this reason, we do not recommend them for children and prefer to place them with an owner who will correct bad behavior if it arises. They are incredibly playful birds and are always looking for something to do and someone to play with. They learn to speak fairly easily, though their robotic voices can be hard to understand.
Loudness: Blue-crowned Conures can be loud birds, and we don’t usually recommend them for apartment living. They have a very distinct call that, in nature, is used to help birds find one another in the jungle. Obviously, the call needs to be loud in order to be heard over all the other ruckus. If you are sensitive to noise, or have nosey neighbors who are, we would suggest looking at other species.
Pricing: Blue-crowned Conures are relatively inexpensive birds. Feel free to call our store at (954) 725-0088 for pricing and availability.
Health Guarantee of Our Birds
We have the strongest bird guarantee in the country, and more importantly, we stand behind our guarantee. The guarantee is simple: We guarantee that we are selling you a perfectly healthy bird. To verify that guarantee, within five days you need to go to an Avian Vet and get any and all testing you prefer to do on your bird, at your expense. We can guide you as to the tests we suggest. If the results are not perfect but the bird can be easily treated, then we pay for all medications and all treatment. If the results are unacceptable then we either replace your bird or refund 100% of the purchase price of your bird, at our option.
Bird Guarantee only lasts for the first five days
Since we have 100% control over the bird's environment at our store, but have no control over the bird once it leaves, we can only guarantee the bird for the first five days. We guarantee that when the bird leaves the store that it has been properly socialized, and that it is 100% healthy. Your new bird has been given an excellent start here at Golden Cockatoo, and it is now your responsibility to properly care for your bird. We are always here to help you take the best care of your bird with the biggest variety and best quality bird products available in the world.
Lifetime Guarantee on our Birds
We guarantee that if during your lifetime, you are no longer able to properly care for your bird, or give your bird the attention it need's, we will accept the bird back on consignment and will find another great home for your bird. We do take a 40% commission and charge a nominal daily fee to feed and clean, but you can rest assured that you always have a place for your bird should the need arise. We are the only store in Florida to offer this guarantee as of the year 2000.
