4 Pearly Conures Babies - a bit older. Our male breeder Cooper is the
3 rd one over from the left side, with the white toe.

The nominate race is Pyrrhura p. perlata or Crimson bellied Conure. Pyrrhura p. lepida, Pyrrhura p. coerulescens and Pyrrhura p. anerythra are subspecies.

Pearly Conures are beautiful little birds and are quiet enough for an apartment. They can be cheeky and are active and curious. As they mature, their colours become more vibrant, and I think the iridescent blue with the green remind me of a peacock. I just love their cute little faces! When they puff their cheeks out, their faces are too die for!!! Ha ha ha The kids always like when we have baby Pearly’s here, they are so much fun!

This is Cooper, he is paired with Chloe who is pictured below.
