The Blue Crown Conure!
We have sold our pair of Blue Crowns, but wanted to leave this page up for others to learn from. I love the Blue Crown Conure and we have one pet. One pet is not too terribly loud, but the pair were much more than doubly loud. I think their noise may have disturbed the quieter Pionus pairs. Update. Our pet is now 6 years old and I consider her LOUD :)
The Blue Crown Conure is in the Aratinga family. However, they differ from the other Aratinga species (Suns, Cherry Heads, etc.) in that they are not as loud. They are about 9 inches from head to tail and are solid green (different shades), have red in the tail feathers, and a blue head. This blue increases its covering down the neck as the bird matures. They are a calmer conure and one of the most intelligent and affectionate.
One question I have had after babies go home is about the beak's shape. Blue Crowns have a very pointy sharp upper beak that comes to a pin point at the tip.
It's Christmas day, and look who we found getting into the presents before us.
"Here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus, right down Santa Claus lane..." OOOOOOPS!!! I mean, "Here comes a Blue Crown, here comes a Blue Crown, right down Blue Crown lane...."
We tried talking her into wearing a hat to match her flight suit.
YAAAAAY!!!!! YOU DID IT!!!!!
The baby on the top right is is a crying baby. See how his head is all puffed/fuzzed up? When they cry, once in a while, they quickly flap one wing a little bit. Doesn't he look like he is hugging the Green Cheek?
Baby Blue Crowns also love to lay on their backs....
Stop reading your book! I want attention!!!!!!!!!"
"PLEASE? Pretty please with a cherry on top?"
"YAY!!! Thank you!" Life with homeschooled girls is quite wonderful.
