green cheek biting
So my fiance and I just took a green cheek conure from a coworker of mine. However, he will not stop biting and drawing blood. His previous owner let him ride on her shoulder all day and he does not know any commands but we have been working on "step up". Everything that I have read up on says not to let them on your shoulder because it's a dominance issue and if they are eye level they don't think you are the boss. He screams all day because he wants to be on my shoulder but he sometimes will change his mind and bite or bite if I try to get him off. Is it going to be a problem that he is already so old? I don't have any bird experience and I don't want him to be miserable. I'm trying to work with him everyday but it seems like he's only biting harder and more often, he also refuses to let go when he does.
