Hi everyone…

Today I met a fairly timid, but very calm and handleable little Turquoise Green Cheek Conure and I brought him.

I’ve named him Gizmo

Thanks so much to everyone who has chipped in during my (six months of!) research!

I was completely torn between a Caique that needed rehoming that was ever so sweet and chatty and getting a young conure to raise and train.

The help and insights on this forum have been INVALUABLE!

In the end I opted for a Conure.

As a beginner, he has a smaller beak and I simply felt more confident handling him. It also seems from this forum that conure are more prone to nip and are a bit more predictable and forgiving than Caiques.

Maybe I’ll try one of those next time!!
