Post: help! skittish conure!
Posted by Terry on 3/04/10
Hi everyone! I just inherited a 5 month old crimson bellied
conure from my aunt who passed away. I don't know much
about him except that he was handfed by her before she
passed. He's very skittish inside his cage and won't come
out or want to step up at all. I fully intend to keep him
but need some advice about how to go about gaining his
trust. It's already been about a week now and no progress.
I don't ever force him out of his cage and whenever i leave
the door open he never wants to come out. I have a ducorp
cockatoo who is 12 years old and has always been very
friendly and eager to come out and interacts with me from
day 1 so i'm not sure how to work with the conure. Any help
would be really appreciated!
