After reading the pronunciation of conure thread, I got curious and tried looking it up. Instead, I ended up on Wikipedia and was looking at how long conures live.

It says Aratinga conures live 20-30 years and Pyrrhura conures live 20-25 years. This got me curious about how old your conures are. Kiwi is 11 months old.

So let's write it like this

Isis - Jenday 5 months

Puck - GCC 10 months

Scarlet - Rosiefron 18 months

The other two are older but we don't know for sure, our vet thinks over 10 years. Our Avian vet has a 37 year old Cockatiel which is double what is expected. No one really knows how long they can live with a good diet and a happy life. I have also heard of a Mitred over 50.

Charlie, Aratinga, Mitred Conure

Approximately 16 years old. Parents were wild caught.


Noel, Aratinga, Cherry Headed Conure, estimated age was 18-21 years old, but I bet she was older.

When is Garis hatchdate? :D Cookie's 3y4m

Good question! I have no clue on the exact date... Since I've had parrots for 30 years "hatchdates" haven't exactly been celebrated each year... Gari was one of two Green Cheeks that a breeder had been trying to sell - but since she (the breeder) was some distance away from populated areas, she had been unable to sell them for a few months. I picked up a classified ad for two Green Cheeks - in the village of Lumby, BC, Canada... It was a bit of a drive but I got Gari when she was four months old - at almost exactly this time of year...

Fortunately the household that Gari was raised in had kids, dogs, cats, and lots of other birds - so she was well socialized.

The breeder immediately recognized that I was familiar with parrots - and Gari immediately took to my wife an I - so it was an easy, and comfortable, sale for her.

Oh - I got to meet Gari's parents too - a nice couple. A bit stand-offish - but that's only to be expected since I was adopting one of their kids...

Anyway - I never asked the exact hatch date... So I really don't know - I can Email the breeder (I Email her with occasional Gari updates - which she seems to like to get) but because she's a "backyard breeder" (although I found her care of the animals exemplary) I don't think she will have accurate records of the exact date... We'll see...
