Mine were clipped when I got them. I felt so bad for them trying to fly. Once they grew their flight feathers back out, I never clipped them. It definitely makes everyone be careful when the birds are out.
I don't have them any more. It was years ago. Oh forgot I had a cockatiel too. All my birds have died or been rehomed.What kind of Conures do you have? I have a green cheek, very sweet bird
Sorry to hear that, My mom had sun conures, they were intensely loud lolI don't have them any more. It was years ago. Oh forgot I had a cockatiel too. All my birds have died or been rehomed.
I had the Nanday Conure. Loud, very loud. I rescued them and then traded them for the Quaker. My Quaker just died a couple years ago. He was 30+ years.
Yeah they are pretty smart, I like to watch them figure new foraging toys outMy wife has canaries and finches.
She used to keep parakeets.
I was always surprised by how truly intelligent some of the parakeets were. But I've never seen any of those "smarts" with other small species.
I bought her one of those Ebay giant walk in 8 foot hexagonal flight cages for her flock. I was hoping she'd get like a dozen parakeets.
Over the years. I've captured 4 parakeets here at my old job. Mostly they were injured by cats or predatory birds. All of them made a speedy recovery. Including an old female we named "lucky". A one eyed. One wing yellow parakeet with many missing toes. She came to me in a shoe box, covered with blood.
Kelly found that with all this new space and now 11 birds in the cage (aviary) The fighting she observed with her Canaries stopped.That's a beautiful aviary! I would only have 2 problems. One, no space for it, and 2, my 2 female birds fight to drawing blood. Other than that, I would love something like that!
