Product Description

Identification: The Sun parakeet or Sun Conure (Aratinga solstitialis) is a medium-sized brightly colored parrot native to northeastern South America. The adult male and female are similar in appearance, with predominantly golden-yellow plumage and orange-flushed underparts and face. Sun conures are very social birds, typically living in flocks. They form monogamous pairs for reproduction and nest in palm cavities in the tropics. Sun conures mainly feed on fruits, flowers, berries, blossoms, seeds, nuts and insects. Conures are commonly bred and kept in aviculture and may live up to 30 years. This species is currently threatened by loss of habitat and trapping for plumage or the pet trade.

Geography: NE South America

Size: About 10" tall

Sexing: Monomorphic (visually hard to determine sex). DNA testing is available to ensure desired gender. 

Life Span: 15 to 25 years

Temperament: Sun Conures are amusing, playful clowns who need plenty of entertainment and interaction. They are easily trained, but will bite if provoked. In general the sun conure is extremely affectionate and will be deeply loyal to a gentle owner. 

Breeding: Encourage breeding of your sun conures by housing them together in a cage large enough to accommodate the two of them. Keep human interference and interaction to a minimum.

Diet: Lovebird/Conure Seed, Dried Egg Food, Cuttlefish Bone, Fruit Pellets, Nuts, fresh fruit and veggies

Q:  WHAT DOES “PRE-ORDER” MEAN?

A:  When a bird is on a “Pre-Order” status, it means that we are awaiting new stock of that particular bird. Delivery times can be anwhere from 2 to 6 weeks. Estimated arrival dates will be posted if known. Please be patient with delivery on pre-ordered birds - they will be shipped as soon as they're ready. 

DNA Testing

If there is not a gender option listed for this bird on our website, that particular species is 'monomorphic', which means we’re unable to determine gender without DNA testing. DNA testing is an additional $99 per bird to be tested. If you want us to do our best without DNA testing, just make a note in the comment section of your order letting us know your preference. Please note that if no DNA testing is ordered, we are unable to guarantee a preferred gender but will do our best. See our FAQs for more info
