The most important part of your post which is squawking is
very hard if not impossible to stop. Sun conures naturally
squawk frequently and it's usually very high pitched and
sometimes loud and to some people, unbearable. That's their
nature. Many people have asked how to curb that problem and
because there is no 'cure' many people lose patience and
become frustrated and either trade or give them away. Other
conures are also loud but the sun is the king of squawking.
Training your conure to talk is also hard to do because suns
aren't known for their talking ability. They make lots of
other different sounds but talking isn't one of them----Dave
