How do they compare to Green Cheeks? Sound wise, etc. Somebody in my area is looking to rehome a "tame" pair that are absolutely stunning. The main concern on my behalf is the noise level will be too high.
The birds don't seem to be hurting for care in the meantime. (They come with vet certificates, DNA sexing papers, food, cage, toys, carrying cage, etc. and from the pics they are looking pretty healthy.)
If it wasn't for that I'd have 'em home already...
noise levels by comparison is pretty vast, as suns & jendays can be loud...they are the most gorgeous birds, but here in KY they are the most common in rescues..as people are attracted to their gorgeous colors & dont do any research beyond it..its what has held me back from getting any...my location where I live, with neighbors so near, I know it would create a problem..if I still lived on my farm in Oregon! heck yeah, I wouldnt hesitate..
:'(tell me about it! bad part is, if ONLY! I lived back in Oregon, I would LOVE to set up a bird Aviary dedicated to the rescue & happiness of these unwanted gorgeous creatures,I can envision the wild sounds bouncing & echoing off the mountains out their..people would care out their because we are already used to hearing every noise under the sun...
People see Beauty & want it, they dont research past the amount of money in their wallets, its the same with the sugar gliders, they see they take more than a dish of food & water & bail, in florida they dont only set free unwanted birds, but they also set free little sugar gliders, bad part is, when they capture the suggies they kill them! ..if it werent for the noise levels here where I live being a problem I would LOVE to own a Aviary of all sorts that reach an unruley pitch level! lol cockatoos,conures,ringies,ect ect I would be in birdie heaven!
I did a bit of research on them when I was thinking about getting a conure before I decided on Razz. I thought I herd some articles mention it all depends on the bird. Maybe you could try visiting the sun conures and ask the owner a bit of questions. The owners know the bird's personality more than anybody. Who knows, maybe they might be quiet.
I just joined this site and see that your post has been here a while now but will reply anyway. I live in Brisbane Australia in a small apt block with neighbours close by. My sun conure spends his days outside on my screened in balcony, not in a cage, and I work all day. So far I have had no complaints from neighbours and I have had him 7 years. Not really sure what he gets up to all day but when I am home he is not noisy. He does have his moments but usually there is a reason for it like he wants to go to bed, or his routine is being disrupted. My household environment is mostly quiet and both my birds(cockateil & conure) are relatively quiet. Likely you have decided on a bird by now? what did you get?
