    I did think showing him that my conure is a bit more comfortable with me would help but it hasn’t so far, I’ll just keep trying!

    Hey @Michael Reynolds! Giving you an update on Kiwi to see if you’re able to help me any further. After allowing him to socialise with my conure a few times a week, Kiwi has really opened up in terms of vocalisation. He’s making what I call “parrot noises” finally, so random little squeaks...

    I really hope that’s the case... I’ll see how he responds to me being near him when he’s awake tomorrow. Haha! Green cheeks are so funny, they square up to anything :risas3: wish it would let me attach the video I caught of Echo putting big old Kiwi in his place:p

    That’s definitely a good idea, I’m going to do that tomorrow after work for sure. Do you think Kiwi will take more time now to trust me after having to forcefully pick him up?? Obviously I was doing it because I had no other choice, his safety to me comes before his trust!

    @Michael Reynolds update on Kiwi. Introduced him to my conure today for the first time (we got Echo the green cheek 2 days ago and he takes food from you through the bars of his cage but is fully flighted so doesn’t care for any training you have to offer). So turns out Kiwi is a big wuss! Went...

    Oh I will have to look a bit closer at him then, he was very scruffy when I got him but he seems a bit more tidy now! I will get back to you on his colouration. Damn! Get some sleep!!! I appreciate you looking through them though, thank you for the new info :) Kiwi just stood on an unsteady...

    I live in Reading, got Kiwi from Hayes, Middlesex though! You’ve now got me thinking that he caught birds and is now selling them off!!! Would explain how skittish he is and the distance I have to be for him to feel comfortable... Whenever he flies around my room, he never makes a sound though...

    I’m glad! :aplastao: He has no ring on his leg at all. The dude who sold him to me clipped his wings (with child scissors, may I add!!!), but he is still able to fly fairly well... I’ve recently purchased a small java tree with toys and a food bowl on it so he has a little play area away from...

    Unfortunately as this is my first bird I didn’t really read too much into this breeder, just saw the photos of him handling healthy looking birds. Wish I’d done more research beforehand! Definitely need to set up some sort of routine with feeding as I just always leave food in the cage for when...

    I hope all is okay! Yes I’ve spent hours reading about the breed so I am just waiting for this little ring to come through to determine what the little fella is (the guy looked like he guessed the gender) haha

    Thank you @Michael Reynolds! I’ve had Kiwi for nearly 2 months, I was told he was 10 months old when I got him from a “professional” breeder. Turned out to be a guy keeping loads of birds in a tiny shed. Kiwi was in a tiny cage with 7 other scared IRNs for who knows how long, the only time they...
