The painted conure is quieter than many other conure species, and when properly socialized, this species makes a wonderful pet. They are very intelligent and can learn tricks of varying complexity. While they generally love to be social and enjoy being handled, they may go through a nippy stage that requires proper training and handling.
Painted conures need safe items to chew, so provide plenty of bird-safe toys and materials for them to chew. They are active and need to stay busy both physically and mentally; a large cage with plenty of toys is important, and a lot of social interaction is important to prevent feather plucking in this species. Painted conures tend to be noisy when alarmed or excited.
