Hand Raised Birds Are Easy Pets
Hand raised birds are one of the best and easiest pets you can own. Being hand reared they are cuddly, tame and easy to handle. Many hand raised birds can be taught to mimic or talk.
Hand raised birds are fed and raised by humans, thus ensuring them to be tame and human oriented. They make fabulous pets who are loyal and fun to the very end. It’s best to keep them indoors, but play and talk to them a lot. They can become your best friend for the next 25 to 30 years.
The Parkes Pet Barn have some hand raised conures for sale and includes green cheeks and sun conures. Originally from South America, sun conures live for about 30 years and have lots of personality. They love attention and are quite easy to train as long as they are socialised from a young age.
Conures do have the ability to talk, however it takes a lot of patience and training. Conures often grind their beaks as a form of self grooming. This is very common and should not be of concern, it is also an indication that your bird is feeling relaxed.
Like all parrots, it is very important to give conures plenty of toys to play with. They have a tendency to chew as well so toys that are made from natural wood are highly recommended. Toys that have a variety of shapes, colours, materials and sizes are the best for sun conures as this will stimulate them mentally as well.
Conures like a large variety of fruit and vegetables, as well as the nuts and “parrot pellets” occasionally.
