Good day to you all,
I just received for my 72nd birthday a green-cheek conure whom Iíve named Connor (with his approval). I had a parakeet for 13 years when I was much younger. Connor along with my horses, dog and wife make a nice family.
Itís 18 degrees out this morning so heat is on for Connor along with humidifier and 2-3x daily misting so he doesnít dry out.

Heís 7 months old and quite friendly. Hand feeds and lets me pet him w/o biting on occasion. Working on step up soon. Iíve only had him about 1 week but he already calls for me and goes to location in cage where I start to hand feed him.

Connor gets mostly ďchopĒ for meals along with occasional nutriberry and pelleted food sparingly.

While I love the cold weather, I am concerned for Connorís health. Mornings inside are upper 50ís warming to mid-60s during day. There is an oil-filled radiator heater near him. Also heat with wood stove, so it is very dry thus the humidifier. Any comments welcome.
Kenny
