Whoa! Those are cute! Are they noisy birds? I would love to some day be able to have a big parrot...that day is a long time off though...and I will have to adopt an older one since I'm an old bird myself. smile They have this rescue in Utah called Best Friends and I'm always checking them out. Has anyone heard of them?

Lol yes Kath, they are very noisy as a rule. Although they can be trained to be quieter. Like toddler, if you go to them or feed them when they scream at you, they will learn that's the way to get you attention. the trick is to train them to whistle, or make a softer noise when they want your attention, and ignore the bad behaviour. But yes, they are some of the louder species of Conure Parrots lol. An Indian Ringneck or Alexandrine are quieter choices if you're after a parrot smile

Illusive, there is about 1.5 weeks between the two. The bigger one was hatched on New Years Day smile

ok i sorta kinda figured that on the ages seeing the feather development stages but i wanted to be sure lol...

on adoptees kathy many have health or emotional issues so you need to be able to be ready to take care of what ill call a lil special needs bird and that can sometimes be expensive where its about health issues...and emotional issues can cause you some of the same lol...there are however, some birds in a adoption situation that are fine...just be aware of this when making this consideration.

a ways back i recommended a type of bird to a forum member that was a adorable loving species...that being the goffin cockatoo and they can be pretty slick and smart too...lol...anyway she did end up getting one and has been in love since but, her bird also came with some serious plucking issues which for a time got better then bang started again...this is why i say some issues will be a added vet expense...

its not for what i would say a beginner wants to have to learn about in the hard way so quickly.

laugh

i came back to add this also...there is no way of telling how old a older bird is in reality keep that in mind also...and with a special needs bird especially if it is older...it now become a matter of YOU adapting to THEM and not them adapting to you as with younger birds.

Awww what cuties! Bob really wants a sun conure. We're waiting for Ivory to pass away before we think about a next step. We don't want to have a sun conure in the house while we have Ivory in the house. Too much potential for stress and danger. So it may be a few years yet. I'm also a bit worried about the noise issue. I'm here all day long and do a lot of coding, plus my class studies, so trying to do those things with a loud bird would be a challenge.

Yeah they are famous for their loud screaming. Already our bigger one has gotten a much deeper voice and no longer does the begging high pitch cry but does the "sqwark" with the wing flapping and all, an indication of his already strong voicebox lol. Although I don't acknowledge it, I don't feed when he's doing that or talk to him at all, when he's quiet I go ahead. Training starts young, so when you do go to buy one - make sure the breeder has already started on noise control training, it can make a whole lot of difference smile
