Clingy screechy conure - should we get it a companion?
We originally had a yellow-sided green-check conure, and decided to get a crimson-capped GCC as its companion when the yellow-sided GCC was about 6 mths old. The two got along very well.
We lost the yellow-sided GCC when it was about a year-old, and since then, the crimson-capped GCC has become extremely clingy and noisy (previously the conures were a little noisy, but still at pretty acceptable levels).
If any of our family members leaves or it hears any noise in the house (indicating that there is a human presence), it starts screeching loudly and doesn't stop.
It's now just over a year old. Am wondering if we should get it a companion bird (considering another conure or perhaps a lovebird?) and whether it would help it become less screechy and clingy to humans, or would it teach the new bird the same bad habits and worsen the problem? Would appreciate any advice, thanks very much.
