Sun Conure Parrots Eggs


Conures are among the most popular parrots to keep as pets.Sun Conure Parrots Eggs

My friend has had her green cheek conure for about a year, and recently she was surprised to find an egg in her cage!

She knew that her young conure would eventually grow up and reach sexual maturity, but she wasn’t aware that even without a mate her conure could lay eggs.

She asked me what else she might need to know about egg laying in conures, so I compiled some information.

How many clutches is safe for a conure to have in a year?

In the wild conure breeding season is in the spring/summer.

However, domestic conures can lay eggs year-round.

This also means that conures can lay multiple clutches in a breeding season, though this can have health impacts.

Ideally you should allow your conure to lay 2-3 clutches.

Conures begin to go through their adolescent phase at around 12-18 months of age.

This can come with a myriad of behavior changes as their hormones spike.Sun Conure Parrots Eggs

A common misconception is that puberty is the same thing as sexual maturity.

However, conures won’t reach full sexual maturity until they are 2 years old.

Breeding a female too early can cause health problems and she may not be mature enough to want to sit on a clutch.

Conures may begin to lay eggs anywhere from 1-2 years of age.

This is a normal part of the growing up process.

Even if your conure is laying eggs, it is advised not to breed conures until both are over 2 years old.

The age that conures will stop laying eggs varies depending on the individual and how many clutches they have had.

The average is 7-10 years old.

At this point they will no longer be able to be bred.

Your bird still has lots of life ahead of them though as conures usually live to be about 15-20 years old.
