Sun Conure Parrot



Sold Out


Sun Conures are probably the most well-known of all the Conures. Their bright colors are very eye-catching, and they tend to have very affectionate personalities as well. Their feathers are so brightly colored that it looks as if they’ve just walked through a rainbow! The majority of a Sun Conure is bright yellow or orange. Babies will be mostly green, but molt these feathers as they age and begin to gradually change color. Their flight feathers, however, will always remain green. Their cheeks are usually bright orange, and their flight feathers are blue. Their tails tend to be a variety of colors, changing from yellow to blue to green all at once. 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 Venezuela)

Trainability: Domestic hand-fed babies make excellent pets. Sun Conures are very affectionate parrots, and really enjoy spending time with their caretakers. They are playful and outgoing, and most are very intelligent. They are not known for being good talkers, though a few will learn a word or two. They will often pick up on key words that get them what they want, such as the name of a favorite food or person, but we do not offer them as birds that can speak.

Loudness: Sun Conures are usually very 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: Sun Conures are relatively inexpensive birds. Feel free to call our store at (954) 725-0088 for 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.
