Post: conure's on shoulders?
Posted by LM on 1/24/07
Hi there, We have just got a maroon bellied conure from a
guy that was allergic to her and had to give her up. Before
that she was witha guy that gave her up because he was
moving to hong kong. Her name is Lucy she is less than 2
years old. In her previous home she was used to being home
alone all day and then would sit on her caregivers shoulder
when he got home till he went to bed. It keeps coming up
when I research birds that they should not shoulder sit
because they feel that they are the dominant one. I don't
want to "dominate" a little sweet bird like Lucy but I took
today to try to teach her that shoulder sitting is not
welcome. She was pretty responsive but really defiant at
times as well. Do I go cold turkey with this or slowly. I
have only been with her less than a week and want her to be
comfortable in her new home but also want to work on some
of her not so great habits.
