Conures are bold and social parrots who want to be where the people (the action!) is in your home. They are curious and fun-loving, and able to pick up some words – though typically not to the extent of other parrots. Along with their gregarious, spunky nature, they can be noisy, which can be problematic in an apartment or with housemates who are highly noise-sensitive. They live 20-30 years, and can be fed a pellet-based diet supplemented with vegetables, fruit and a quality seed mix for small parrots.
