I have a 1.5 year old Green Cheek Conure.

 

We had bonded rather well until recently.

 

I have health issues and had gone several weeks without giving her much attention.

 

I didn’t think it would be a problem.

 

She didn’t act any differently.

What are the absolute worst types of parrots for a first-time bird owner?

Once again, although well-intentioned, people are breaking down your choices into the macro of species (Quora question).

One answer started with

  1. Cockatoos
  2. Macaws
  3. Amazons

Yet these three species come in close to a combined 100 flavors.

 

Major Mitchell cockatoos are not loud, and not necessarily cuddly

 

Bare eyed cockatoos are all but demure

 

Noble macaws are only 12 to 14 inches long.

 

Hyacinth macaws are up to 44 inches long – 4 times the size of a noble macaw.

 

You can’t compare the two just because the are macaws.

Why Does Sparky My Sun Conure Scream When He Can’t See Me?

from “comments” in a recent order confirmation email

he is less than a year old and screams loudly when he cannot see me. I am hoping the calm herb will be effective when my neighbors are home. 🙂

I Took In A Rescue Sun Conure That’s Biting Me – Help!

Mimi H writes

 

A patient of mine highly recommended you.

 

I’ve watched some of the biting videos but you see I took in a rescue sunconure.

 

We believe it’s male.

 

It humps everything right now.

 

His wings are not clipped mind you and I’m not against doing it if it will help.

 

My issue is not only is he hand shy but also a biter really bad.

 

We believe he is 4-5yo.

 

Where should I start and how?

Yay!! I can’t wait to read the article. By the way, do you or anyone you know have experience with Galahs (aka Rose-breasted cockatoos)?

 

I have one that I got as a baby (It was about 6-9 months old). She is just under 2 years old now. I wasn’t impressed when I drove out of state to buy her from the breeder that came with great recommendations.

Let’s start with forgetting that BIRDS DO NOT LIKE CHANGE!

Hi! I very much enjoy your emails and all the information you provide. By the way, my green conure (Wyndle) looks just like the bird you have in the picture with you, Mitch.

Wyndle is a “mutt”, not a pedigree like my Sun Conure was. She has a HUGE personality and is full of spunk; very strong, inquisitive, eats all day (not overweight, tho) etc.

I am a proponent of clipping wings. I know not everyone feels this way, but I’ve had a cockatiel break his neck flying into a mirror when a loud, unfamiliar noise outside frightened him and other bad experiences with flighted companion parrots.
