Conure Bird Cage Buyer's Guide
How to Pick the Perfect Conure Cage
|Native to Central and South America, Conures are small/medium sized parrots. They are fun-loving birds with a great sense of humor. Most species are known for cuddling and enjoy learning new tricks.
Understanding the Conure Parrot
Conure’s personalities can best be described as curious, inquisitive, and playful. They have a sweet disposition and love attention and closeness with their caretakers. They are not afraid to hold their own with other parrots, even larger ones.
Usually they enjoy learning new tricks and can be very entertaining such as learning how to dance. They can even be taught to go “potty” with a simple command. Most will talk but they do not have the vocal skills of African Grey or Parakeets. However, they will be heard and are known for the occasional screeching.
Generally they love to snuggle under things, so providing them with a tightly woven wash cloth, soft piece of fabric, or fuzzy toy will be appreciated. A bird tent as a place to sleep and hand out is usually eagerly accepted and treasured. As they like to climb under pillows and blankets, care needs to be taken not to accidentally smother them.
