Click here - EBAY Classifieds Add for Sun Conure - $300


Add contents:
Details forSun Conure with cage, playset and 9 parrot books
Address:N US Highway 287, Fort Collins, CO 80524 (map)
Date Posted:11/22/11
Age:Young

Description
1 year old Female Sun Conure to good home.

I bought her in April for $400. Sadly, I travel too often to give her the time and attention that she deserves.

She comes with her; cage, toys, freestanding parrot playset with tray, a few bags of Ecotrition parrot food (worth $16 each), a couple other bags of treats, 9 parrot books, a parrot training VHS, 6 Bird Talk magazines and I will transfer my subscription to your address.

I'm asking $300 for rehome fee, and for all the items that come along with her.

Guys -
Under 2 years old, it still might be a sun conure.

Sometimes they take up to 2 years to turn that sunny yellow color from the juvenile coloration. Juveniles have anywhere from a truck load of green (identical to jendays) to barely any green (more sun colored).
These are baby sun conures:

I don't believe baby sunnys have any blue on the wing like the jenday though, or am I wrong?

Pics of baby and adult suns with blue primaries. Is that what you're asking Vikki?

This is a good pic for comparison purposes. Which one's which? There's 3 jendays and a sun conure:

The sun is the bottom left.

? Maybe ?


But I get your point, and I appreciate the object lesson.

The next question is, how DO you tell the difference?

The head. The Sun had more red in the face than the mature Jendays I'm familiar with.

I have absolutely no knowledge if it's going about Conoures, so I'm willing to take that lesson as well. Who knew, that they're so tricky?

Yes, the baby Duck (sun) is the bottom left.
I've had baby suns with very lemony yellow faces. Can't seem to find any pics of those right now.
How to tell the difference - Fingers crossed and hope who you're buying it from knows or best guess. In captivity there's breeding between the suns and jendays, so some might look like juvenile suns and actually be sundays. Unless the breeders can be traced back to imported wild stock we just really don't know. Even my breeders, I've done my best to visually make sure they're pure jendays and pure suns; But every once in a while there are jenday babies with a few yellow feathers on their wings. Might be normal for jendays even in the wild, might not.

There's speculation that gold caps, suns, jendays freely interbreed in the wild. You might find this interesting:
