conure only bonded with my partner

by louise wood

Please can you give me some advice or tips on our green cheeked conure? We have had him now for just over 2 months. And we have been told he is 2 yrs old. He will get straight on my partner, loves being stroked, and really snuggles up to him. He has started to try and talk, and its me who has sat and talked to him, given him treats and feed him. He will occasionally come to me, but its on his terms.

I was told that, like children they go through "the terrible 2's", and i have had a few nasty nips too. I was also told its normal for african greys to only bond with one person, but conures will bond with 2 or more?? This is our 1st parrot, so any advice would be appreciated. I am also trying to find a book, if anyone knows of a good one... Many Thanks lou
