Cherry-headed Conures are known to be intelligent, fun-loving birds who thrive on interaction with their owners and do well with training. Cherry-headed conures love being the center of attention and will go to great lengths to get it. These conures are beauties but in limited supply!
Like all conures, these are very loud birds that scream intermittently. Like most parrots, the cherry-headed conure is a flock-oriented bird with well-developed social instincts. In a captive environment, the human owner takes on the role of flock mate, and in order to be happy, a cherry-headed conure will require lots of interaction time with its owner.
Diet: Conures in captivity need an equally varied diet consisting of fresh fruits and high-quality pellets, and respond well to Australian Blend Goldenfeast.
If there is no gender option listed for a bird on our website, that particular species is ‘monomorphic’, which means we’re unable to determine gender without purchasing DNA testing. DNA testing is an additional $149 per bird to guarantee preferred gender. DNA testing may add an additional 3-6 plus weeks to estimated delivery time to allow for gender results.
