So the first week with Marty has been a bit up and down. Albert seems pretty non-plussed about the new bird noises, but Marty is a bit of a biter.
She already knows step-up, no, and a few other commands, however she HATES being put back into her cage. Like, I have more bites in the last week from this conure than I've ever had from Albert. She's also molting, so a nice head skritch can turn into a hissing biting whackjob snapping at my fingers in no time flat.
That said, she has many personality quirks that set her far apart from Albert. For one thing, this bird eats anything. While we've had to resort to juicing carrots and putting the concentrate in her water to get Albert vitamin A, Marty won't turn anything down. As well, she loves bathing. Albert tolerates the misting bottle, but Marty gets down and deep in her water dish and throws it everywhere, and it's super cute.
She's a huge clown just like Albert though, climbing, squawrking in her weird robot voice (stark contrast to Albert's super-sweet humanlike voice), bobbing, dancing, etc.
