Re: baby conure whats the right age to purchase?
Posted by Elizabeth on 6/23/06
It is more about how they are handled and raised then at
what age you buy them. At this age your potential baby is
still very young - they wean around 8-12 weeks, about 9-10
being the norm here. They should be weaned on their
timetable - not the breeder/handfeeders. :-)
So your baby would be, most likely, weaned already. The most
important thing to look at is the baby socialized? On a
quality diet? What type of gaurentee do they offer? Does
s/he know set up, basic manners and do you click with the
parrot? Some birds you will click with others you won't -
alot of parrots will pick their people themeselves, don't be
in a rush to choose. If someone else puts a deposit down -
you can always wait for another clutch...waiting to think
things through can be a good thing.
