A Measurable Difference

Meet 3 small & 3 large conures at opposite ends of the size spectrum

By Anne C. Watkins

Mention conures and there’s a good chance that jendays, suns or blue crowns come to mind. There’s no doubt that these medium-sized conures deserve their popularity, but there are plenty of other conures that are as equally captivating. Check out these six conures — three big and three small — and sample their appeal.

Maximum Fun, Maximum Size
Painted, Green-cheeked and orange-fronted conures: Unlike the midsize conures, these three small conures fit nicely in situations where a larger conure just won’t work out. Their little beaks can deliver a painful pinch and sometimes even draw blood, but they won’t inflict the damage larger beaks can. They are quiet enough for apartment living and generally require smaller setups and less floor space.
