    I agree on the cage size. Conures are very active birds, so it's best to go with a large cage whenever possible, unless your bird will out of his cage for literally a full day most days.

    If money is an issue, you can get a reasonably large cage on ebay for around $100 with shipping; or you can spend more like $300 and get a huge one.

    I'll get a bigger one soon. But yes, he/she will be out of the cage most of the time. My birds have plenty of freedom.

    Jen- They might be fine but put it in perspective...how would YOU like to be stuck in a bathroom-sized room for hours a day? It's not fair the the birds. Also, if you can't afford a new cage how are you going to afford vetrinary care for them?? A bigger cage really wouldn't be that much...please try to get a bigger one. I'm not trying to insult you or anything- try not to take offense just trying to let you know that a small cage isn't okay for a conure, ssince they are so active.

    How big is the cage for the tiels? Just make sure if you are swapping cages to scrub them out real good before you set up the new bird in them...

    Mary- same thing really... Get a bigger cage as soon as you can PLEEEEASE. Suns are much bigger then GCCs and just as active. I'm not trying to sound bossy to either of you, but I know a bird in a small cage is a miserable bird. Even if you can afford it time during the night and day, thats still hours during the day is has to be cramped in a boring little cage...

    Again- sorry if i'm coming off as rude but cages are the most important thing in a birds life after good companionship...

    Because the bird regurgitated doesn't give any sex information. Both my suns are girls and Alliee will reg. for me and for Kira. It is more of a sign of companionship and that your bird likes you. The only way you can tell the sex of a conure is by getting a blood sample sent of to a lab and they will check the DNA. Or if "he" lays an egg.
    Yours Truely, Emily

    Re: new sun conure owner

    I'm looking around for a larger cage for my Yellow Sided GCC. I'll let you know when I find one. I'll give you the measurements and such. I think e-bay is nice and the cages are not too expensive. The cage he/she is in now is 23" wide, by 30" high, by 20" deep. My two tiels are in the slightly smaller cage. I like your cage parasiteeve9, did you get it from e-bay? How much was it?

    Re: new sun conure owner

    I just got my green cheek yesterday. She's a sweet heart. She trusts me because the day before I brought her home, the people let me hold her and all that good stuff. She took to me right away. So when I opened her transportation box she looked up at me and saw that it was me. And she just walked on my finger without a problem, I petted her and put her in her cage. So your conure should be just fine is it trusts you.

    Re: new sun conure owner

    Whata cutie, I love the suns, like birds with adhd, funny lil guys



    I looked at all the caged animals in the shelter... the cast-offs of human society
    I saw in their eyes love and hope, fear and dread, sadness and betrayal.
    And I was Angry.
    "God," I said, "this is terrible! Why don't you do something?"
    God was silent for a moment and the He spoke softly.
    "I have done something," He replied.
    "I created You."
