Hi everyone let me introduce myself my name is Conker I’m Green Cheek Conure. My safehouse mum & dad say I’m a lovely friendly little bird with loads of character, I can be very mischievous and nosey. I love being out my cage all day and enjoy perching on top of the tv or curtain pole but I also like to sit on window sill and keep watch out. There is another bird here who I do love to annoy by chasing him off places his happily sitting on, or I will sit on top of his cage to annoy him. We have children visit at weekends which I like and enjoy their company. There is also a dog here but I have never actually met him but his barking doesn’t worry me at all. When I came here I had no routine at all and I was terrified of hands but I’m slowly learning to trust the humans and will take food/treats from them, but still wont step up, as for my routine I’m slowly learning that us birds need a routine especially bedtime as mum tell me we need to have 12 hours undisturbed sleep which again I’m now getting used to going to bed between 7pm – 8pm but sometimes I play up and need bribing with my favourite treat pomegranate or a grape and I wake about 7am- 8am for breakfast.
Conker has been in charity three times now but each time its been no fault of his own.
Conker has settled in really well since coming to us, his a lovely little bird whom keep us entertained with his great character. He hasn’t a preference to men or woman, loves children, not fussed by hearing dog bark. Conker is still a little scared of hands but is now taking food/treats from them. Conker loves to be out cage all day and will happily often sit on our heads or shoulder which we try to discourage so he will then fly off or fly to our laps, he loves to sit under our chins and sleep his truly an amazing little bird.
Continue to get Conker used to hands, and to step up.

Conker is a great little bird who is happy being out cage all day, but doesn’t mind going back in his cage to play if humans needs to go out, but sometimes still need to be bribed. He loves his toys, enjoys bathing in his water bowl. Conkers favourite treats has to be pomegranate or grape but he does like almond slices. Conker would make any family happy has he loves everyone.
