Conure loud and biting
by: Angela

It does take a lot of time and patience to train a bird. Conures can be very loud and they bite very hard. Don't force yourself on the bird. He is still acclimating to his new home and new people. Don't force him out of the cage. He will eventually come out on his own once he's comfortable. Try to establish a routine with your bird and talk to him in a soft voice when you're feeding him and cleaning the cage. Just have conversation with him by talking about what you're doing i.e. "I'm changing your water now, here's your breakfast, it's yummy, isn't it?" etc. Read the parrot training articles and try to teach the bird to step up on your finger. Don't keep sticking your hands or fingers in his face, that violates their "space". If he gets nippy it means he doesn't want to be handled, so back off, it will help gain his trust and also keep you from getting bitten too hard. Birds also yell loudly because they want your attention. When I first got my bird, I would bring the cage into the room I was in so she would feel like part of the family. Time and patience will yield a wonderful, funny and amusing companion. Please do not give up.

Time and patience is the main ingredient for training. You want to develop a relationship of trust, so not scaring the bird and learning it's body language is very important.
