Cool Green cheeked conure

I just received a 6 year old green cheeked conure . I named her Ivy, she took to me right away but has just biting the heck out of my hand and don't know what to do.

Re: Green cheeked conure

Welcome to you and Ivy! Biting is a pretty common concern with green cheeks. If you pop into the conure subforum, you’ll see lots of threads related to it with some great ideas about strategies .
