Here is my experience: I am a man. I have two female parrots. I didn't intend for that; it just happened. Both are adopted. Both of my parrots are partial to men, and some people say parrots are more inclined to favor the opposite sex. Who knows. Maybe my parrots just like men b/c they're around me most of the time. I have a grey and a Meyer's. Conures have a reputation for being very outgoing, so maybe the gender issue isn't an issue with them.

In conures, it doesn't really matter. Females can lay eggs, but both can learn to talk and make excellent pets! Both of my conures ended up being males, although I always assumed one was female! (Assuming the other is male, neither one laid eggs, and the 2nd conure just "screams" male to me! ). They were similar species (cherry headed conure, RIP, and mitred conure, still have him) but the complete opposites!
So I can say first hand that there can be great differences, even within the same sex birds!

I breed 10 types of Conures:
I recommend the Maroon-bellied. They are rare but are very good w/ children. Next comes the Sun Conure. I like the Sun more than the Maroon-bellied but both are vrey friendly and should be well with you. I'm not sure if other owners think this but female tend to be a hair friendlier (for Conures). I found out most male tend to be on the aggressive side. Again, I recommend you to check w/ each bird before clicking w/ one.
