Hi, I have three A.G. and an umbrella cockatoo, they all exhibit the same kind of thing you mention. The question that comes to my mind is, is it your birds chest feathers that are shaking,or is it the birds body that's shaking? When I first noticed my birds doing the feather shake I (like you) thought there might be something wrong. after a lot of time on the net, I was able to find a satisfactory answer. If its just the feathers shacking, its probably an indication that the bird is experiencing "strong emotion, or supreme contentment. Now if its the birds body shacking then you might consider following the advise of the first comment.

If your conure is shaking, then you need to figure out what is wrong. Please find an avian vet to examine your bird. You can use this Find an Avian Vet link to find an avian vet if you don't have one.
