That little IRN just makes me want to punch myself in the face. That's how cute he is.

Lots of weather we've been having lately. I think we've had weather very day this week. How 'bout them Tar Heels?



Actually it's the Sun I think is way too cute. But I don't think my neighbors would appreciate that voice...

Today, I was interrogating my SO about which birds he thinks are aesthetically attractive. He said 'no' to just about every species including the Conures, except he loved the Suns. He said I could get one down the road... Cool

I really want an IRN too, but I am scared by the "hands off" rep they have. Also not overly keen on their vocalizations but I love love love their speaking voice, next to a Grey it might be my favorite "talking" voice.

I LOVE Xavier my IRN because he's so "hands off". But then again, 20+ years of bird keeping I'm over the needing a snuggle bug.

My husband says IRNs aren't affectionate, but that's open to interpretation. Xavier easily steps up for me and pretty much anyone including strangers. He doesn't bite. He doesn't even tweak/pinch (unless I do something really crummy to him like pin him like a snake and restrain him. Even then, he's fine once he's let up.) He wants human interaction. Since he's loose in the living room and can get around most of the room on top of a cage or play pen, he'll follow me around the room when I'm doing stuff and make kissy noises at me. He like me to pick him up and make noises back at him and kiss his beak. To me, he is affectionate - he just doesn't want me petting him. None of the breeders preen each other or otherwise touch each other except to mate. That's just IRN's.

Vocalizations - I guess they can be raucous. Xavier rarely (pretty close to never) does any "wild" IRN noises since he talks and mimics, even though his vocabulary is very limited. He says "hi" and that's it, but he makes a lot of weird non IRN noises that are very cute. EC says he's mimicking me, making fun of my old boss. When I'm in another room and he hears me and he wants to interact he says "Hi" and I go to him and say "hi" back. I don't know if this desire to mimic instead of making "wild" noises is unique to Xavier or other tame and talking IRNs do it too.

Actually. . . This latest batch of conures vocalize like ringnecks! It's really funny and kinda nice since their mimicry of ringnecks sounds a lot nicer than conure!

I think I'm the only one who doesn't think suns are very pretty. I mean they are pretty but it's too in your face colorful for my tastes. I'd choose a jenday over a sun, at least...

of course as soon as I posted this I went to get some supplies at the bird store and fell in love with a sun. Silly thing thought I was going to feed him and did the cute begging thing and played with my fingers. SO CUTE Razz still, jendays are prettier to me sunny is there much difference at all between suns/jendays besides coloration?

Not really. More individual differences among individual suns and individual jendays. My first jenday was really cuddly and mellow. Ducky's very hyper and not so cuddly. But I think that's more individual than sun vs. jenday. They're both acrobatic, and loud and prone to tweakiness if rules and boundaries aren't given and enforced.

The first Sun I met was my neighbors. He was one of the first birds I was ever up close and personal with. He bit the sh... snot outta me. Then he "vocalized." Really loud.

Consequently, I think they're lovely birds - when they belong to someone else. Smile

The tend to get that way. A truck load of socialization helps a lot. My experience has been a lot of socialization reduces the screaming, to me, about 75%. They tend to vocalize whenever anything is new or alarming. It's almost like they scream, "WHAT'S THAT?!" But for suns and jendays, "WHAT'S THAT?!" is everything. A lot of socialization and they pretty much start ignoring things so they're not screaming, "WHAT'S THAT?!" all the time.

And the biting can start as early as 6 months of age. Again, I think socializing helps a lot. Ducky's going to be 1 this month. He's super good with strangers including little tiny kids even when they move really fast to pet him or jump up and down and squeal around him.
