Re: First Time Sun Conure

I agree with everything said above! He's probably just settling in, give it some time. I would reccomend talking to him inside the cage, and after he's comfortable with you, let him out feed him...

At about 5pm each night there's a huge screaming fit, but it only lasts for a few minutes. i second what stated above, if you can handle a golden capped conure, a sun won't be much different. The few...

I put cut-up apple slices in my conure's cage with a mix of other yummy fruits and veggies too. I guess I wasn't paying enough attention when I cut them as I had left some of the core on. The seeds...

Re: cockatiel

Can you give us a bit more background info? Also, by 'cocktail' I think you mean Cockatiel. The only sure advice I can you right now is to go to an avian vet. They'll know whats happening :)
