New parrot owner!
Hello! As of this morning I am the proud owner of a green cheek conure by the name of Wheatley. My mother bought him for Christmas for me and he's my pride and joy. My mom suggested I join a parrot/conure forum since it's full of knowledgable parrot owners who can help me out since this is my first /real/ parrot. I've had paroletts before, but never a conure. So I'd be very appreciative for tips and ideas. I have a book all about conures, but I'll take all the tips I can get!

What a Christmas gift! Hoping you'll stick around, lots to learn for new owners and lots of good tips/ideas shared amongst members as you become more comfortable with your new friend too.

Thanks for the warm welcome! Wheatley is a joy to have. He's already well trained and he steps-up well, though he sometimes gives little nips. I'm going to be buying him a flight suit with a leash in the coming days so I can bring him places and won't have to clip his wings (since I think he'd be a lot happier being able to fly).

Hello and welcome AND Merry Christmas! I've had my yellow sided green cheek since May. I know (as I'm sure everyone here does as well) what you mean when you say he's your pride and joy.

This forum is amazing and full of knowledge! I recommend using the search function to search the forums for a lot of information you are looking for! My best advice is not to push the bonding process, things are new for him which is why he's old is Wheatley? Congrats!!!
