Hello, My name is Meggan and I am a new owner of a very expressive Green Cheek Conure named Albie. I joined this group as a recommendation from an old friend. I am in need of some good resources for understanding my new friend better, I could deal with his mood swings better if I just understood where they were coming from. I do a lot of dog training and I made it a point to understand some dog psychology and the reasons behind their behavior. I tried to find resources on my own but I haven't been so lucky. Albie is just a week shy of one years old. I purchased him from the local petco last October. We managed to get through his first molting without anyone bleeding. He has since learned to fly and him and my small dog are good companions.
