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!

Re: New parrot owner!

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.

Re: New parrot owner!

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).

Re: New parrot owner!

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 nippy..how old is Wheatley? Congrats!!!
