Moody behavior...testing boundaries...sounds a bit like a human child, right? It’s cause it is. They have the intelligence of 2-3 year old and often behave like it. Let that be a guide for you.
I've kept note of that. I've done a lot of research on green cheek conures before I got her. Unfortunately, nothing told me about her bratty behavior. Though, I've been patient, I've just gotten tired of it. It's been happening for 4 months and it's started when she was about 5 months old, I believe.
