Conures make a large group of parrots all originating from South and Central America. They vary in size from Greater Patagonian Conure at 21 inches to Painted Conure at only 9 inches. They come in variety of colours and are generally very trainable, which shows their level of intelligence. Conures are full of character and will often prove to be very mischievous, if not trained properly. Many are very playful and love to play on the floor. Another advantage is that they will often be willing to interact with most people. This makes them ideal family pet.

As it is a very large group of parrots and it would not be possible to go into detail about each one, only a List of names is provided. If you would like more information about any one of these delightful birds please contact us and we would be glad to help in any way we can.
