    New green cheeked conure

    I recently (as of December 30, 2018) got a green cheeked conure. He is very loud and outgoing. He will eat treats from your hand. I am trying to pet him, and he keeps biting me. Does this mean that he doesn’t like to be touched? He is 4 years by the way. Any tips on how to gain his trust?
