Question Blue Crowned Conure

A friend knows someone looking for a temp foster home for her Blue Crowned Conure while she has surgery and rehab. I guess the bird used to be real tame but has not been worked with for quite some time. I don't know anything about them so have been doing some reading.

My biggest concern is noise because I live in an apartment. Occasional loud noise is OK, often is not. Supposedly she doesn't get loud often...

Any thoughts??

I wouldn't say it would be a problem. Especially if it's temporary

I have met some before and they all seemed sweet, gentle and very talkative compared to other conures. I've never actually had one scream around me though. I know most of that conure family can be extremely loud but I haven't found blue crowns to be as bad as the mitred, cherry head, suns etc

I saw an ad the other day of a blue crown up for adoption. The owner warned adopters that his blue crown is very loud and they must be aware this before adopting. I think it depends on the individual bird- some are quiet or and some can be loud, it's all down to luck of the pick.

I have always been under the impression that they were VERY loud. On the same lines as the Sun and Nandays.
