    My Quaker is quite loud and territorial but for some reason my
    Tiel bonded with him, they look forward to playtime together.

    I have 8 birds and find my Tiels are the best and easiest to
    care for. I enjoy all of them but when someone asks me what
    would I suggest for a first bird I always say a Tiel would be a
    good choice.

    I don't know much about Conures, except that they are beautiful.
    My 4 year old has never laid an egg and I'm terrified about it.
    Hope everything goes well. I'm sure you will choose the right
    companion for your little one.
