Care if it dies
by: Anonymous

If your not the same person that just posted about your quaker dying, sorry and please disregard this.
If your the same person, then I would suggest caring a little more that your quaker died. You seem to be much more wrapped up in getting a new bird then the mortality of your last one, and thus the bird's health. Perhaps I'm totally off base, but I know parents like to see those morals and responsibility.
Not to say that you dont care, I have no idea I wasnt there... and it's death obviously wasnt anything you did. I guess I'm just suggesting that you make sure your parents are aware that you care :)
Best of luck; i tried with my mother for a long time for a bird, and no such luck. Had to wait till I moved out.
Another good idea would be to ask to adopt one from the SPCA... not only is it saving a bird and a great thing to do, but it's also much cheaper.
Good luck!

sun conure
by: Lori

I have a sun conure. He has a great personality and he's beautiful and extremely smart. The only bad thing is the noise. He is very loud. He dosen't really scream its just that his normal chirp is extremely loud. If anyone in your house is sensitive to noise this may not be a good choice.
There are many birds that aren't that loud such as an african grey or a cockatiel. I have all 3 and the conure is definatly the loudest but I still love him.

Wanting a Sun Conure
by: Tracie

I suggest you research Sun Conures first. Learn all about taking care of them. Learn about how loud they can be and what methods people use the help curb their screaming.

Research how much it will cost for their care, both feeding them properly with healthy pellet and seeing an avian vet for well visits and vaccinations. Show them that you know all about how much the cage, food and care will cost and all about taking care of them.

Then, once you have established that you understand what it takes to care for them, that you are willing to clean their cage regularly, keep their food dish clean and the water dish too if you don't invest in a water bottle, and that you will work with the bird to train it, and maybe they will decide to let you have the bird.

Please ask yourself if you will still want this bird and be able to take care of this bird for the next 20 - 25 years. Who will care for the bird if you go off to college, etc.?

Also, make sure your parents and family have heard how loud their voices are and are willing to listen to that sound every morning and evening and possibly throughout the day.

If I were a parent and you came to me with all of the above information and you had a reputation of following through with your responsibilities, then I would seriously consider letting you have a bird.
