Conure bobing and breathing heavy

It is hard to say what this is. If this is a newly weaned bird, it may be begging for food. You need to be VERY careful to make sure it is eating it's food, because sometimes birds revert back to wanting to be hand fed when they get to a new home.

If your bird is wanting to be hand fed, you may have to return the bird to the breeder and ask that they keep the bird until it has been eating on it's own for at least a couple of weeks.

If this is not a baby bird, then I suggest that you Find an Avian Vet to examine your bird to make sure it is healthy and also to get it vaccinated.

Please make sure your bird is eating 80% high quality pellets like Harrison's or Roudybush and only 20% healthy treats. Colored pellets and cheap pellets have sugar and chemicals that will cause health problems eventually.
