There is also the problem that the current owner is my Mom's
boyfriend and he doesn't want to give it to anyone else. It was
my mom who convinced him that he was not caring for the bird
properly and told him that she was taking it. I know that it is
going to be rough, and I don't expect to make any progress with
him until summer when I have three months to work wich him daily.
I also realize that three months of training will probably not
stick and I will have to start over every time I am home. It is a
long time, but I only have one more year before I can bring the
birds with me. It is not the best situation but it is better than
him living on the top of a bookcase, unable to interact with
anyone and living in filth.
Back to my actual question, does anyone have any ideas for
entertaining him? Special toys that most conures seem to enjoy?
