Sun Conure

Sun Conures are extremely social birds. They have a need for social interaction. A single bird will get more attached to its keeper but if you are not at home a lot it is best to get two birds. It is a fact that two birds of the same sex get along just as well as a mixed pair. Even more so if the Sun Conures were introduced while they are still young.

At Kellyville Pets we love our animal friends and are committed to matching owners with the right pet and providing customers with unsurpassed advice, service and selection of products. This is our way of ensuring our animals have the best possible start in their new home with you. 

All birds come with a 14 day health guarantee and a 7 day cooling off period as part of our standard policies and procedures.

About Sun Conures

Sun Conure Information:

Sun Conure Temperament:

The Sun Conure, also known as the Sun Parakeet is considered to be one of the most beautiful birds in the Parrot family. The Sun Conures present an endearing, charming and playful personality packaged into a vibrant bundle of feathers.

Sun Conure Grooming:

Regular wing clipping is recommended to prevent flying away or any injuries to the bird.
Giving your Sun Conure the opportunity to bathe is important. Frequent bathing serves several purposes. It prevents dry skin, softens the keratin coating which helps with moulting, and keep your bird bright and clean.
Your bird should have access to a bathing dish with fresh water every day.


Sun Conure Feeding:

Like all parrot species, balanced nutrition is very important for pet Sun Conure. Most pet Sun Conures do well on a diet consisting of a high quality commercial pellet and seed mix, and supplemented with lots of fresh bird-safe fruits and vegetables.

Sun Conure Cage:

Sun Conures can be quite active little birds, and should be allowed time outside their cage each day to play, explore, and stretch their wings.

The cage should be as large as possible. The height of the cage is less important than the width and length. Your bird needs to be able to flap its wings without risking injury. Ideally the minimum length and width should be 100cm. This size will give more room for your bird to fly from one side to the other.
