    Playing rough and nipping

    I need some help with my pineapple GC. We have had him for about 6 months and rescued him (from our backyard, no knowledge of previous owner or age/gender to be certain). From what the vet says and based on what he looked and acted like when we found him, he was most likely 5 months - 1 year...

    sun conure nippy

    Hi my sun conure is 6 months and she’s very friendly but she bites me a lot on my fingers, ears and neck. A lot of times it really hurts when she bites. She loves chewing on wood and her toys but I don’t know what the deal with her chewing on me is. How can I make her stop? I know not to yell...

    Mixed signals?

    Hi everyone! I've had my adorable yellowside green cheek conure for about 2 weeks. She's about 5 months. She warmed up to myself and my boyfriend at about the 4-5 day mark of having her. She hesitates or refuses to step up a lot, but I usually use treats to convince her to and she complies...
