I bought two green cheek conure birds about a week ago. They are full grown but they seem not to be active as the pet store what is wrong?

New birds not active
by: Tracie

It is possible that your birds are sick, many birds from large chain pet stores especially are sick due to poor breeding practices and being transported with a ton of other birds potentially sick.

Please Find an Avian Vet to examine your birds to make sure they are healthy if the pet store did not give you a certificate of good health, showing THEY had the birds seen by an avian vet before selling them.

Another possibility is that the birds are still not comfortable in their new home. We have some parrot health and training materials that will help you on our Parrot Training page that I suggest you read.

Besides needing a healthy diet, your birds need a variety of toys to play with to keep them busy. Some birds like shreddable toys and others like wood toys or toys that make noise. The two birds may like different toys.
