I adopted my Blue Crown Conure from Wings of Love Bird Haven. He was rescued from a hoarding situation. His age and prior history is unknown. I have had him for about 2 months now. His only known health issue is that he was a little under weight, but that is now on the rise. He eats very well now that he is out of birdie jail.. LOL (quarentine) He has some cage aggression, but we are working on that. We are also working on stepping up more. He can and will, but only on his terms and if you are getting him to stepup from his cage, you better have a perch! I have many love bites from this big guy! ;o) He has come a long way in 2 months.He will step up to my hand if he is away from his cage or playstand. He loves his baths. He targets really well too. I have taught him one trick so far. I will say "Where's my silly bird?" and he will tuck his head under his wing and giggle. Its adorable.I am learning to read his body language as it is very different than my other conures. I am able to rub his beak and scratch his head if he is on his stand alone perch. I believe given more time, patience, and positive reinforcement, he will be the loveing companion that his breed is known for.
