    Question conure?

    Hi! i LOVE conures i think they are one of the most the most beautiful birds! i currently have a cockatiel and think he gets lonely while i am at school, and was wondering if they would be okay caging together. I've heard that GCC are not as loud, but my family doesn't like a lot of noise. anything i should know before considering a conure? what is the quietest parrot, besides cockatiels, budgies and lovebirds? thanks!

    Re: conure?

    Personally, I would put them in separate cages. I think conures are parrots that are full of energy, and some are louder than others. Being smaller parrots, I think a cockatiel would be intimidated by them. Smaller parrots like conures and budgies like to go after the feet of tiels and bite them. You could try out of cage time together with them, but I would watch them carefully to be sure they do not get aggressive with each other.

    I would say budgies would be the most quiet, because their chatter never gets really loud, although they make plenty of chatter, but I think that all parrots can be loud at times. Birds just do not spend their days not making noise of some kind.

    My daughter has a Pineapple Conure and he is a blabber beak. He is not really loud but boy does he constantly like to be making some sort of noise. He talks very good and will talk sometimes, churp weird bird cheeps and basically just want to be part of every conversation going on. He is very active and also very cute! I love him to death but boy does he tire you out at times with his constant flying, talking, playing, jumping in anything you have that has water in it and doing his own bird thing. He is more active then my lovebird Boomer was but I will say he is much quietier then Boomer was too. Tikki my daughters bird is a great bird though and I would even consider a conure but beware they will tire you out. Budgies and Cockatiels are mellow birds (really mellow) compared to crazy and wild Tikki. With that being said I will say I LOVE Tikki and just love it when my daughter brings him over to our house when she goes somewhere overnight.

    Tikki (Pineapple Green Cheek) bites every now and then but they do not really hurt to bad. Boomers bites would pierce your skin.
