A lot closer to a conure. They do have feather dander, but not very much.

If they are like conures, then they don't produce these dust like cockatiels, which is ridiculously ALOT for such a small bird.

In my opinion, a cockatiel (and especially a cockatoo) is not a living room bird because the amount of dust they produce. They belong in the balcony or something.

But, I am perfectly fine with a conure in the living room. I am wondering if an Amazon is more like a conure in that aspect.

I agree with those statements Timing2012. Cockatoos and Cockatiels do create a lot of dust. Especially problematic for people with allergies or respiratory problems.

The only dust my Amazon creates is just feather dust; it's not a powder like it was with my cockatiels. Even my budgies are dustier, and they're like 1/10th his size!
