Exclamation How to tame a bird??

Hey,

So i recently adopted two conures ( taco and tequila ), taco is 4 and was a hand raised bird were as tequila is 1 and hasnít been handled. taco is really nippy and tequila is really flighty. Is there tips on getting them used to my hand and to tame them?

Thankyou!

Re: How to tame a bird??

You'll want to dedicate plenty of time to properly socialize Taco and Tequila!

First step is to earn their trust. If they were properly hand-raised, your attempts will be sort of a review and they should progress nicely. If not, you'll need to be patient and let them progress at their own pace.

A great thread to start: Tips for Bonding and Building Trust
