Green Cheek Conure signs of aging
by: Bonnie

Hello, I have a 19 yr old Conure. A few days ago when I looked into her cage she was sitting with her head in the food bowl and did not move. I came closer and she still did not move, but once she heard me, she looked up, seemed a little disoriented. She was shaking a little. For the next few days she seemed fine. Today I noticed that for the first time since I had her, that the ends of her tail feathers are rough and clumped. I know that is old, but is the lack of preening significant? Thanks

Editor's note: An avian vet would be the best place for you to get answers. If you don't have an avian vet, then find a good breeder and ask who they use.

Conures age

My pet store said my conure was a baby and I want to know his age. Can you find out by a dna test or anything like that?

Editor's note: Yes, your avian vet can do a DNA test, but it won't tell the age, just the gender. The avian vet can probably guess if the bird is young or old.

age of conures
by: Anonymous

I bouhgt a pineapple green cheek conure 2 days ago.The store said that it was 11 months old.But i have a green cheek and a sun conure and compared to my birds he is very small in size and so clumbsy. He also keeps going to my other birds to try and get them to regergatate into his mouth just like a baby bird.I dont think he is as old as they told me.

Editor's note: Make sure the bird is feeding itself, you are correct that it sounds young. Also, please post your questions as new questions under instead of answering someones question with your question.

Can you tell the age of a Conure?
by: Tracie

As far as I know you can not tell the age of a Conure by looking at them. There are a few tell tale signs of really young birds, they are usually a little clumsy and skinnier than older birds.

I have a story I wrote that is posted at the bottom of our conure page entitled What is a baby Green Cheeked Conures Like? That will give you some more ideas.
