New member! Hi!....

Hi,

I'm a new owner of a Cinnamon Green Cheek Conure, a first time bird owner... and new to this forum!

I got my conure 5 days ago, after a lot of researching. I originally was looking at an Alex (a conure was the first breed I was interested in though).. and when I met this little guy / or girl (awaiting DNA test).... I fell in love.

I got him from a bird shop in Victoria, he/ she was already hand raised and I am told is 10 weeks old.

He is great with everybody - the shop he was at used to have him out all the time, with different people holding him etc.... so, so far it's been a fairly good transition and he has taken well to his new environment.

I'm obviously learning and getting used to his body language etc which is why I'm here, to learn as much as I can!

I can't wait to get the DNA test back so that I can name him / her! So far I have in mind if a male, Lenny... if a female, Lola or unisex names - Charlie, Willow or Coco.

If anyone has any suggestions as to what their conures favourite toys are -- please let me know! He LOVES my computer.... and I don't really want my buttons chewed off! He actually gets nippy at me when I take him off the keyboard, so I'd love to get something for him that resembles a keyboard and buttons he can chew for his own....

I'm looking forward to reading what people have to say and any tips anyone can offer

Re: New member! Hi!....

Hello and welcome to you and your new baby!
My conures love Balsa wood, cardboard, vine balls and anything paper like cupcake holders, basically anything they can shred that is made from safe materials.
I'd love to see pictures of your new baby!

Hey Samara, and the forums welcomes you and your CGCC, (He/She). I have a baby umbrella, and although she loves to chew on wood, I found something she loves very much.....



She loves for me to place these on her table top play area, and she goes from one to the next attempting to solve the puzzles. At first it was overwhelming for me, although these Chinese puzzles came with instructions, I had to put them back together as quick as she could solve them. They are shiny, they are metal, their not small as in choke hazard, and she solves some, and tosses others. Their are 16 puzzles in a pack, for like $9.00 through amazon, if you have Prime you get free shipping. I also use Chinese finger traps as I detour her from chewing on items I don't want chewed. She of course puffs up and hisses and nips at the finger traps, but all in all gets the idea, and I find them very useful for a young bird in training and learning. Hope this idea helps..... and I'll look foreword to seeing you around the forums and following your adventures.

I just want to mention that if ordering these, make sure they are stainless and not zinc, and that a bird can't get any open that they may get their beaks caught in.

Hi, new member!
A real looker!
Finger traps- I got 100 for 3 dollars!
Besides the metal, those puzzles pose a threat of entrapment! If the metal is safe, only use while you have full supervision!

Re: New member! Hi!....

Thanks for the info so far everyone!

Also, what might be some ďtreatsĒ to offer?

Iíve been experimenting and offering different types of fruit and veg to see what he/she takes to (pumpkin, broccoli, beans, corn, carrot, strawberries, apple, cauliflower, peas)....what are some other things your CGCC love?

He started a bit of nipping this afternoon... and Iíve been reading bits and pieces about when they move in, that nipping can start.

Iím thinking of getting a naturally made play stand too...Iím still finding a routine as to how to juggle with a cheeky conure and still get things done around the house (+ I have a 2 year old!) .... guess this will take some time to settle.

Is it best to have music/ sound on in the background too?

Iíve noticed that one side of is wings is also longer - could that be how they were cut??
