Hi! I have a Blue Crown Conure. I had been looking for a Quaker Parrot because I had one I loved dearly growing up. My husband got my BCC for me from a lady he worked with thinking he was a Quaker Parrot (he's not very familiar with birds. lol). I have had my bird for about a year now. I'm not sure of the gender, but I refer to it as a he. He is so shy. He used to try to bite me when I would even touch his cage, but he now lets me feed him and water him with no issues. He is still too scared to let me pet him, and I don't want to push it and scare him more. He won't come out of his cage at all. I leave the door open and sit near the cage, but not too close. He will poke his head out, but that's about it. He sits on the side of the cage that I am near. Is there a way I can get him to trust me more? Is there a chance that he'll ever get used to me enough to let me hold and pet him? I am more than happy to wait longer, but I would like for him to know he can trust me. Thanks so much!
