Latin Name: Pyrrhura Perlata
Common Name: Crimson Bellied Conure
Description: Green; narrow reddish-brown frontal band; forehead, crown and back of head dull brown, each feather edged with whitish-brown; forehead with marked pale-blue tinge; lores and cheeks yellowish-green becoming pale blue on lower cheeks; ear-coverts brownish-white; feathers on side of neck, throat and upper breast brown each feather broadly edged with whitish to dull yellow; variable blue band to nape; lower breast, abdomen, bend of wing and under wing-coverts bright crimson; thighs, under tail-coverts, primary wing-coverts and primaries blue; marked blue tinge to upper wing-coverts; tail upperside dark brownish-red with green base; tail underside grey; skin to perophthalmic ring white; iris dark brown; feet grey; bill dark grey.

Gender Determination: Undeterminable by appearance
Trainability: The Crimson Bellied Conure is a playful bird and is very trainable.
Length: 25 cm (9.5 ins) (About the size of a Cockatiel)
Average Lifespan: 20 years
Average Weight: 85-94g
Diet: Pellets, Fruits and Veggies
Housing: Min 22 x 22 x 26 inches
Loudness: Crimson Bellied Conures are known for their quieter natures, however, quiet is in comparison to other species of conures. Almost any conure will be louder than a cockatiel for example. However, Crimson Bellied conures can make good apartment birds.
Talking Ability: Crimson Bellied Conures tend to be quiet for conures so naturally they generally dont talk as much or often as other conures. Crimson Bellied can learn to speak a few words.
Notes: These birds have been vaccinated for the polyoma virus. It is crucial for young birds to be protected as they have little to no immune system for their first year of life. Just as people, cats, dogs are vaccinated, we use vaccines to substantially decrease the incidence of disease in birds. By doing this we have developed a positive reputation that separates us from the "birdie mills" that do not aspire to the same standards. We have a vet on the premises bi-weekly that administer this vaccine and monitors our babies and flock.
Breeding Notes: Breeding the Crimson-bellied Conure is more difficult than the other sub-species as they often produce infertile eggs and the hatching success is very low, as they are prone to mutual disturbance; therefore, it's best to isolate pairs during breeding.

These conures are generally quiet and they are usually only vocal when excited. They quickly grow confiding. These are lively and active conures that enjoy flying about, so plenty of space should be provided. They tend to be hardy and are not as susceptible to diseases as some other bird species are, especially when provided good nutrition and suitable environment. They enjoy bathing often. The chewing requirement varies from pair to pair. It is important to provide a regular supply of fresh branches to satisfy their chewing urges as well as to provide entertainment. They are not usually aggressive to other birds.

Though they may breed all year, the main breeding seasons are from August to November and the second usually starts in April and goes on until June -- probably depending on the availability of food and favorable conditions.
