Post: Sun Conure that hates women
Posted by Grace on 10/01/07
I have a lovely little sun conure. Beautiful bird. And my
first small bird. (I had too's when I was younger.) And am
find smaller birds to be a frustrating experience. Though,
I'm not giving up. (If you never had a too latch to your
finger in fright, vs a conure who likes your blood,
well...its an experience)
Though, I'm at a loss....how should I go about doing this?
He knows his basic commands, Step up, step down, etc. etc.
and I have to use...of all things...my oven mit to get him
out of his cage. I try it slowly. And he steps up. No
biting on the mit.
I get him out, take him to a room where its just me and
birdie. Feed him treats, and work with him for about 30
minutes, then its cage time.
In that time, he accepts my finger on the ground, waiting,
and even comes when i say softly, come here and step up.
And he comes running and jumps right up. Then looks so
pleased with himself.
It really is cute.
Till my husband walks in unannounced and upsets the work
session and he goes crazy and bites. (We did make break
through today. Found out grapes are the way to this bird's
heart. He actually bit my husband when my husband tried to
take him while I was giving him the grape).
I know this is going to be slow going. But it was
something I did will all my agressive toos. Though...could
someone with a little more sun conure experience give me a
I just don't know if what you typically do for a larger
bird, you do with a small bird....
