I have a cute Mexican conure

( I never see these guys anywhere they are so cute more people should have them)

This is Budi!
He was super shy and mega bitey when we first got him, he was at the aviary for a long time. gave me a bad bite on my lip once.
He's grown so much and I never thought he'd be a conure that would roll on their back and play with their feet out. But today I was playing with him with a sheet I ball up and he goes crazy makes happy noises and usually grabs onto it with one leg.
Today he grabbed with both and almost kinda rolled back a few times. Sometimes now he will even stick a leg up against a wall 90 degrees while playing with a toy.

You think it's possible he eventually will open up to the idea of playing while on his back?

Nothing I'm trying to force but I have a conure who would play on his back and it was too cute!

We've earned a lot of trust over the months so assuming we keep building it I wonder if it's possible

What a cutie! 🥰 I would say if he wants to go on his back, great! But don’t do anything to push him into it, just let him make the decision. Maybe he will, eventually 🙂

UPDATE: As of this morning I have caught him playing with one of my long fuzzy socks. He managed to burrito himself and play with it on his back. He was embarrassed when I saw it and immediately snapped out of it.

Success! I knew he'd love it

He loves socks. I bought gloves to play with him to see if I can eventually play with him while he's on his back , had a conure who loved when I'd play feet fight. He loves the glove game too . When I take em off he has a triumphant dance and song
