I've heard the same thing. So both conures have been good with myself, and my husband. They both step up, and even love their head scratches still. My Jenday Kiwi does attack Charlie the Sun if he is on my person. She doesn't like Charlie on myself, or my husband. Other then this she is no longer attacking him. I wanted to take on another conure because I know how social conures truly are. I thought it would be healthier for Kiwi to have a friend, and someone to play with all day long. I do let them out together for hours. I just open their cage doors, and Kiwi climbs to Charlies cage, and just hangs out there until she has to go back to her cage. I am hoping eventually I can have them both in one cage. I'm not rushing it though.Interested to see how this plays out. A parrot expert told me yesterday that if conures bond to each other then they gonna distance their human. Or if they don't bond to each other, they might fight. Hope she is wrong.
It can be pretty tough getting birds to stop eating something they've been eating their whole lives.Charlie the Sun Conure is now 105 grams. It’s up from his 98 grams the day I got him. All he eats is sunflower seeds out of the seed mix bag he came with. I’ve tried chop, and different fruits/veggies with no luck. This little guy just loves his sunflower seeds.
Has anyone ran into these issues with conures? Any suggestion’s?
