Biggest mistake of my life...or best thing I've ever done.
 
So.....clark now has a brother/sister. I was picking out some xmas presents for him yesterday and ended up coming across a conure that picked me.

I've had him about......30 minutes now out of the box.

Things are going well, clark is slowly warming up after having me to himself for three years or so.

:gcc: + :gcc:

video two:

While I was uploading this I found out the new guy is a little scrapper! I guess clarks not the one i need to be worried about. I still have them on my shoulders, but I had to break up one fight that the little guy/girl kind of started and was being the rough one.

Ok so first advice being asked...the little new guy/girl is definately not a biter or aggresive, but if they end up on the same shoulder....(ill go with he for now) he instigates the fight. Clark was the one I was worried about but he's all chill. So far I've caught it each time and had my hand between them before any serious beaking could be done. Anyway to break the habit or is this just "Justin you've had the bird for an hour and 4 minutes...relax he'll calm down too..."?

I have no idea, but fights over shoulderrights are quite normal here..
(only one grey per shoulder plze)

Not to be critical, but you should do a 30-day quarantine in a different room from Clark, especially if he came from a pet shop....

EllenD of course your right but I'd be carrying any germs from one to the other anyways....besides...It's christmas. So far getting better reaction holding new guy on the hand and clark on the shoulder...they tend to look more interested and less "macho".

I wasn't trying to be critical or anything, I know what it's like when you bring a new family member home...I only worry about pet shops. The problem is that you walking back and forth from one to the other has nothing to do with them having direct contact with each other when it comes to the really nasty Avian Viral Diseases, you don't "carry" a lot of the really bad ones that we think about with new, young birds, they go straight from bird-to-bird, such as PBFD...That's why I always do the quarantine, specifically because of that one, ABV, PDD, Polyoma, etc. The big ones that the little guys get from their breeders/parents/aviary birds...

Congratulations! I have to yeah quarantine is a good idea.. but I understand. You need to be reassuring Clark that you love him, and for now he needs to know you love him best lol that helps. I hope they become best buddies. I'm definitely a person that thinks more the merrier. Try and stop fights before they start, at first they are just nervous, but it can lead them to think other birds are bad. Lots of treats , I would throw a bunch if seeds on the bed or table and let them eat together.
