About two years ago, I spotted a bird in a pet store (large chain). On his glassed-in cage was the label “Sun Conure.”
I decided that I wanted a bird like that. First, I ordered a large cage from you; then I waited about 9 months for a bird to become available. During that time the label changed to “Fancy Conure” vice Sun Conure.
The bird I purchased, my friend “Conrad”, is identical in coloring and in temperament (as described in several references) to a Sun Conure. Since we haven’t mentioned any names of pet chains (so we aren’t subject to law suit!), can you offer any thoughts on the name change.
Crossbreed? Avoiding the endangered species controls? Has anyone else ever raised this question???
