Am i doing something wrong? 10 points whether you answer soon?
Hi, i recently got a Sun Conure yesterday and am wondering if i am doing something bleak to him. He isn't fully weaned yet, he will be finished hand-feeding from formula this friday. He is already starting to eat his dry food. I am wondering though, if it be bad that i handled him yesterday and a little nowadays? I am worried i may have gotten him scared. I also was stroking him on the final and scritching him a little on the cheeks, head, and chest. he seems to relish it, but he nibbles on me a lot lol. I know he is still a baby technically, so is this normal? How long do i hang about until i take him out of his cage again? I plan on taking him out of the cage for 4-6 hours a light of day, and letting him play on his play stand. I am VERY worried about one thing though!! He keeps climbing the horizontal round up bars, and they said he can kill himself because he doesn't have full go together yet. We put up some pieces of thin bamboo, to hold on to him from climbing there, and it kinda helps. P.S. They had him surrounded by a glass tank with mesh on the top, so conceivably this is why he is so curious? Thanks SOOO MUCH in advance for answering my question!!
Your bird is going to do fine - he's profusely more resilient than he's been given credit for. And your gentle and un-hurried touches are pleasant to him - otherwise he'd not nibble on you - a sign that he like and accepts you - if you'd frightened him or made him angry, he'd be biting the heck out of you when you came practical him! Just keep on doing what you're doing and be sure not to make sudden moves towards him, which would indeed panic him. If he did try to escape, which is the usual response, he could indeed injure himself bashing into the cage.
Don't worry just about him climbing - that is how they gain skills and improve their balance - it is a required part of their growing up. And he has fun doing it. So watch him and delight in his antics. You'll have a dear friend and pet for many years.
and yes when they are young they DO NOT HAVE balance
a little at a time for the horizontal round up bars and yes they can fall and really get hurt...
Please put together sure he is eating his dry food and ALSO introduce him to soft food.. HIGHLY important.
SOFT foods are
bananas.. apples peaches etc..
and vegetables.. resembling carrots.. tomatoes... Broccoli.spinach etc
Even cooked beans as a baby bird (and an adult) is good it will allow Him to lean how to guzzle..
You must give him soft food like I stated above...
but NO NO NO
no celery the string will clog his crop
no caffeine """"they are poisonous""""""
Any more question i will be glad to help
but do not leave the fruit etc FOR MORE THAN 3 HRS IT CAN AND WILL GET A BACTERIA IN IT .. that IS harmful to them...yes our stomachs as human will decimate that bacteria but they do not have the same digestive tract as us
