    New Conure

    I just bought a Maroon Bellied Conure baby and he/she will be coming home sometime soon. So I have a few beginner questions :)

    1. What should I do the first day they are home?

    2. What should I do during the first week?

    3. Taming/bonding tips? : )

    4. When should I start step up training and handling? They are hand rared and the breeder says they are very friendly.

    Re: New Conure

    Congrats on your new baby! I think since its hand raised and people friendly you can take your baby out the first day and spend time with it. All the birds in my extended family are very much part of the family and spend there days out of the cage with people. Hand feeding your bird foods that it already eats is a great start. My daughter's pineapple conure loves fruits and flies over to us when he sees us getting ready to eat. We are very much into "flock meals" so when we eat the bird gets its own dish of our food to eat. They love it and really do try more good for them people food this way.

    Study up on what not to use in your house that can harm a bird. What to not feed them and all the things to do to make them happy. This site has a Bird Information section that is loaded with lots of great information.

    And of course show your new baby off to us here. We love pictures here!
    Fly Free Boomer, we will forever love you.
