Weird sun conure behavior
I've had a nanday for like two years now so i'm decently versused in typical conure behaviors but I just resuced a sun conure and have a few questions. It's a year old supposedly but doesn't know how to step up, and she's very hand flighty. You have to reach and grab her but after you get her she's fairly calm. She's not banded and I wondered if i got a nest raided bird or if some backyard breeder just didn't band her.
She hangs from her cage top by one foot upside down almost like a bat and flaps her wings really hard. I've never seen my nanday do this and she does it all the time so i was just wondering what it means. Also what is the best way to go about teaching an older bird who is very skittish to step up. We've been letting her watch my nanday step up and get tons of preening from us but she has a huge flee reflex. We've got her to start taking pieces of nut from our hands so that is something. Mainly just wondering about the wierd bat like behvior she does.
