Hello All I need help with my 2.5 year Sun Conure!!

I have a 2.5 year old Sun Conure name Phoenix. We have had him for 2 years and he has never really been nice. I make sure that he has toys, a big cage, freedom to play on a playground (outside of cage during day), good food, and fresh water. He has two cockatiels (who do not share a cage with him) to interact with. Phoenix will attack anyone that gets close to his cage and will try to swoop down onto my or my son’s head and bite us. I feel like I have tried everything to get him to like me... At this point I don’t know what to do with him, he’s just mean.

Re: Hello All I need help with my 2.5 year Sun Conure!!

Hello and welcome! You will find lots of good advice on here.
Parrots are kind of complicated (as you know) so I have a few questions about your bird and his behavior:

Does he have any huts, tents or access of shadowy places (boxes, blankets, bedding, under furniture, pillows etc) in or around his cage that he interacts with?

Does he get 12 hours of quiet/dark sleep nightly?

Is he on a light/dark schedule?

When petting, do you stick to the head/neck only?

What does he eat daily?

How often is he out of his cage daily?

Does he have a preferred person?

How do you guys react when he bites and dive-bombs (all of you--what do you say, what do you do, do other people come running, do people run away, proximity, eye-contact, volume, physical contact etc?)

Can he see the cockatiels ? Does he show interest or jealousy when they are out? Are they ever out at the same time?

Who came first (in order), the cockatiels, the sun conure or your son (and how old is your son)?

Welcome to you, Phoenix, and your cockatiels!

As "Noodles123" suggested, more information will help us give the best advice.

Re: Hello All I need help with my 2.5 year Sun Conure!!

What have you tried doing to tame your sun conure? Just wondering what "tried everything" means. Perhaps I can offer help if I know what you have already tried.
