Conures are medium-sized
parrots which make charming and playful pet birds. Before
buying one a few points are worth noting.
Conures are a type of
parakeet. They can be trained relatively easily as they are
sociable birds. As a pet, they are smaller than the large
parrots but have many of their qualities.
There are around forty
conure species but numerous subspecies, giving rise to a
wide variety of sizes, colours and natural characteristics.
Conures broadly divide
into two main types. These are the smaller Pyrrhura, the
smallest being around 8.5 inches long and the larger
Aratinga which can be as long as 18 inches.
