Hi my name is Rio I’m around 3-4 years old, I’m a cheeky Green Cheek Conure. Rio hasn’t been DNA sexed but is known as a he. He is a normal nippy Conure but sometime can nip quite hard but does love giving kisses and sitting in your hair. I do love been out of my cage. I will have a fly but not very often.
Rio was rescued by his original owners just over 2 years ago before he came into the charity he didn’t have any toys when his owner picked him up were she then brought him a nice big cage and lots of toys. we believe he’s been 3-4 years old.
Rio is living currently in safehouse with a woman and he seems quite happy when the small children come around and he’s out Rio isn’t worried about them but needs to remember that Rio is quite nippy. Rio needs to kept low as he will nip your face when you are least expecting it. You can not touch any of his toys or cage if he’s in there as he will attack you so you need to wait for him to be out of the cage first or up the top of the cage. Rio loves playing with balls but if you try and touch them he will nip your fingers but does want you to play with him with the balls. Rio will let you stroke him but this is only on
his terms. Rio is a quite a good talker he says Rio… What you doing, Whats up and Blows kisses
Not really done any training with Rio apart from trying to lessen him from nipping he isn’t as bad as when he firsts come into safe house when he does nip he gets told no and put back on his cage then go back to him so he know it’s naughty.
Rio is currently on fresh vegetables and fruit and also has Tidymix. He can be picky with the vegetables but still gets offered them. His favourite is the occasional grapes and apples but loves strawberrys.
Rio loves balls of any sort… He loves being out the cage and being around people. Rio has a snuggle hut which he loves to sleep in.
Rio is a very Cheeky boy that loves attention and can be nippy and is cage aggressive.. Will accept head tickles but not for long and only on his terms. Rio just wants lots of love and attention
