Re: There and Back Again: A Conure's Tail

I taught Ducky the ring toss trick as well. It helps to teach him to fetch the rings to your hand first, then place your hand over the peg and pull it away right before he drops it in. Eventually, he will learn that he only gets rewarded when the ring goes on the peg.

Thanks guys! I'm glad you are all enjoying my boys.

Here is the toy: Alfie Pet by Petoga Couture - Darcy Educational Woonden Ring Tower Toy for Birds https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01LWLG4TW?ref=yo_pop_ma_swf

Today, let's see...Finley was a complete disaster. I was trying method of putting him on the floor for biting but he won't let go so I end of shaking him to the floor and because of that he (even clipped) took flight to the Chandelier type thing in the entrance way of the door. Well it's pretty high up so I had to get a broom stick to get him off. He saw the broom stick coming for him and freaked out and flew down. I'm sad to say after that any hope of teaching him was kind of lost today. I need to find a way to put him on the floor and not shake him but he knows I'm going to put him on the floor so it's tough. Ugggh Finley... you're killing me bro! He's so sweet sometimes it's crazy how he can be in such a bad mood and scream and bite and act scared of me but the next minute he's cute and playing on his back or cuddling. Strange. Anyways, of course Ollie the angel bird let off squawks of concern at the whole broom fiasco but then clearly was convinced Finley was to blame as he took to my neck and nipped at Finley any time the poor green guy went by. Ohhh my 2 boys, my 2 completely different boys.

Re: There and Back Again: A Conure's Tail

Thanks Carl!

Well today I have the chef event I'm cooking at which means I won't be home tonight at all (I have my babysitter cone and put them to bed and hang out) so I made sure to carve out a couple hours in the morning for them by skipping my workout. I figured I'd be working pretty hard this evening so it's fine. Finley continues to bite when he's upset but now I've been taking him to a place on the floor and placing him there and walking away while saying "no bite". I hope this works! He wasn't terrible about it this morning so that was good and him and I got some play time in. Ollie and I had some one on one time also and then I played with them together.
Ollie likes to go under the blanket on my lap but Finley doesn't... unless of course Ollie is there lol. Today Fin even went all the way in Ollie's spot and walked on Ollie's head, the poor darling just made a noise of displeasure as I quickly removed Fin from his face. I tried to get it on video but only manages to get a little of it. Hope you enjoy!

Re: There and Back Again: A Conure's Tail

Haha thats funny. Ollie is really happy chilling out under there isnt he. Finley will grow out of biting. I remember Xander doing it alot but he was always gentle lucky for me. Just consistently telling him no did the trick really. Do some more vids of Ollie and good luck with your chef thing x

Re: There and Back Again: A Conure's Tail

Lucky for you Carl, before I let the house I made an Ollie video I wasn't planning on posting but I will since you requested more Ollie! And yes he loves just hanging out under that blanket and grinding his beak and sometimes napping. He has not shown mating behavior for a long time so I let me do it every night. I put Fin to bed at 7 and Ollie at 8 giving Ollie a whole hour of Mommy time. He really looks forward to it and hops straight to the blanket or under my chin. He's the most gentle and cute little guy ever!
