Pyrrhura Conures

~Green-Cheeked, White-Eared, and Painted Conures ~

All from the genus Pyrrhura, these little guys are some of our favorites. They are all very similar in personality and differ only in color and in some cases, size. Our Pyrrhura friends are BIG birds in little bodies!
They are such clowns and so much fun to play with. Even people who are unsure as to their feelings about birds can't help but fall in love with these babies! Their dispositions are gentle and sassy at the same time.
They are very quiet compared to the larger conures. They will speak , butthis seems to be individual talent and varies with training. I have been around some who talk and talk and there are others that are not as gifted. In any case,
a hand-fed, domestic baby Pyrrhura is an excellent choice for a pet. The cage size required is not as large as is needed for other parrots, and the bird will give you just as much enjoyment.

These birds are NOT hybrids! These are mutation colors- just like the different colors in poodles etc.
