- Green Cheek Conure
Hello. I am new to posting on this site, but i need some serious help. I have had my Conure for almost 7 years now. Got her when she was just 6 months old, and I have made sure she lived her best life with me. When I got her i knew what i was getting into. So with me I'd make sure she is out of her cage 8 plus hours a day and I take her on walks whenever I can outside ( I put her on a leash because she is fully flighted). I got her when I was 19 and since then I have gotten married about a year and a half ago. Before that I lived with my parents, and when COVID hit my dad started working from home. Birdie (yea that's her name haha) during that time has formed a strong bond with my dad and she would not leave his side. So when I moved out with my husband Birdie has been a train wreck for over a year now. Screaming all day every day. I am finally at my wits end. My ears hurt, I cry every morning now, And i just feel like I failed her. I have researched for hours and hours. Tried everything people suggested online, and a year later she still screams all day. I don't know what to do anymore. Am I giving up to soon? I cried for a straight week debating if just rehoming would be best for both of us. Im am keeping her at my parents for a few days to clear my head and she seems happier and much quieter there, but my dad nor my mom can handle her and let her out of her cage. And Birdie is starting just to tolerate me and not wanting to be around me. Just typing this is making me cry. I am at a loss. I love her so much so even considering rehoming is breaking my heart at this point but i can clearly see she isn't happy anymore. I need help on what to do. I can't google anything anymore because i read each link and nothing is helping, again i have been trying for over a year now.
