Hey, so I got a baby conure yesterday about 5-6 weeks old and I also have an Indian ring neck who is almost 1 year old and he is extremely curious and gets pretty jealous when the baby is on me. He will fly onto me and try to nip at the baby, of course I don’t let him get that close to get contact. I don’t want him hurting the baby and I’m not really sure what to do. Any tips on how to get him to calm down when I’m with the baby and to get him to stop trying to nip at it?

Are you doing quarantine for them? If so they shouldn't be in the same room. He'll get used to having another bird in the house, just give him some time. Don't let them close to each other, and make sure to take the baby to the vet as soon as you can, just because it's a new bird and you don't want to spread anything.

I would keep your IRN caged or in another room while you spend time with the baby for now.
