I don't have a conure, but I have a lovebird who loves to shred
paper- when she wants to shred my book or something, I give her her
own piece of paper, and place it it the same place everytime. I tell
her, "No! That's my paper! This is your paper!" Mostly works. Maybe
you can try giving her some old clothes she can shred? Or place
towel on your shoulder? But I know what you mean about "forgetting"
and going right back to it..... my lovie is currently "forgetting"
that I don't want her to destroy the phonebook!
