    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.
