Hi. We have had our black-capped conure Tulsi for 5wks now. She’s 9mo old. We were told by the pet shop she was hand raised by the breeder. Our daughter has had one from the same breeder for 3yrs, also hand raised. Though I will admit, I recently did some research into the breeding company and it was sadly way less than stellar.
Anyway- she has been a joyful addition to our family thus far. We’re still learning about each other, I have her on a pellet and chop diet and she’s maintaining weight at or around 70-73g. We did do a feather DNA test recently w/avian.animal genetics (?) and awaiting the results. We had no plans on that but we went into a local shop this week looking for something, found out she’s a breeder (sure wish I had known about her before) and she recommended getting the bird sexed; and for $25 ‍♀ hope it’s true.
I named her Tulsi Blue Vana- Tulsi Vana being a sacred medicinal herb (wild holy Basil) I love as a nervine (good for the nervous system) and Blue came from the velociraptor on Jurassic Park because sommmmme days -

Does he use the ladders in your cage I’ve been looking at that cage and wondered if they use ladders and the ledges

Yes she does use the ladders! but rarely ever stays down on the bottom floor level. She'll go down to get her ball and go right back up. If we had to do it over again we probably would not have gotten such a tall house for her. I don't know if we could've found a wider one but I'd love to do that. She stays on the top floor the most, the second floor if I put a food bowl there in the slot for it, and once in a while I see her playing with her toys on that 2nd floor.

I made a foraging box for Tulsi, I'm trying to teach her how to forage (I guess?) but she really just wants to eat the paper lol I pick up the food in it and show her it's there, she will eat it then but then just picks up paper again
