Right now we're kinda holding off in case his family turns up and keeping him fed, watered, and entertained.
You forget I spent 5 years getting Lurch to come to a understanding with me. It was just a surprise when he decided he wasn't going to play nice anymore and went to war with me. It could very well be between a new situation and having a bad time outside he's feeling better and also hormonal because he certainly touchy and doing all kinds of things right now. He has a home one way or the other at this point and like Lurch eventually we'll come to a understanding with each other.
Boy did this bird end up at the right place!!!

Today he FINALLY calmed down a bit so I just let him out. He nibbled on my arm a bit and slightly opened his beak if I reached for him, better then actively trying to seek me out to bite my fingers through the bars. I put on a big hoody with the hood up and he's sitting calmly on my shoulder and running around and squeaking so far. I'm not pushing him and if he stays nice I'll let him stay there and snooze or do what he wants.

He got his checkup today and he was all systems pass go. They said he/she is in excellent shape and feather and of course he charmed them and was a perfect gentleman after biting the crap outa sister Sandy when she tried to stuff him in the carrier.
He has no chip and weighs 65 grams, likes apples and triskets.
He's good to be around Dobby so maybe we'll try putting the cages close enough to see each other and see how they do.
He started getting stressed and overheated so they cut it short and brought him out to the car with a list and talked to her a bit about him.

What a cutie!!!

Are we talking about a fully flighted Conure?
Yep, as soon as he got fueled up and was rested he started flying all over the room he's in when out. He hasn't flown a lot and he's still probably not over his escape and adventure for however long he was outside. At least his check up was good so now it's work with him till he's happy or his family claims him.

The wife of the husband and wife vet team sent us a email saying she's pretty certain he is actually a she because of the rounder head, pink feet, and stance on the perch. She also said she was a fun patient. :xflove: Might explain why she really liked me at first when we brought her home too.
