Checking out the neighborhood
- Real Name
I just adopted a new sun conure about a month ago, she’s about two years old, and she was a return and the store owner didn’t say anything other than that. He told me she’d be hard to get out of her cage but after she’d get out she loves to cuddle and step-up and whatever. When I brought her home (her name is embers) I realized this wasn’t the case. It took her forever to come out of the travel box when it was left open inside her new cage, and when she got in her cage she wouldn’t leave. It’s been about a month having her and I leave the top of her cage open all the time, except she won’t go anywhere other than the cage. She’s also TERRIFIED of people. She still hasn’t gotten used to me and still runs when I walk up to the cage. I’ve always done it slowly, I’ve tried treats as well as just minding my own business and trying to let her get comfortable with me being around. I’m not sure what else to do. If anyone has any ideas to help make her a more loving and cuddly and less scared bird I would love some feedback.
