Crimson-Bellied Conure


Crimson-bellied conures are a relatively quiet species, especially compared with other conures, although they are louder than budgies and cockatiels, for instance. They make delightful companions for those willing to spend the time working with them. Generally, crimson-bellied conures are only vocal when they are excited; otherwise they are a quiet species. They are playful and active, and are trusting of human companions who spend time with them. Smart and interactive, crimson-bellied conures require sufficient time and training to avoid behavioral problems.

Behavior / Health Concerns

Crimson-bellied conures are very active and require a lot of mental stimulation in order to thrive. They should also be provided sufficient space in which to fly. Because they enjoy exploring and chewing, plenty of safe chewing opportunities should be given to them. Crimson-bellied conures are generally hardy birds that do well when provided with the proper nutrition and a good living environment; they tend to not be as susceptible to disease as other bird species.
