General update. Some losses. A new addition and some questions.

So I haven't posted in a while. Lots of things happened since I was here last. First the bad news. A cat got into my home and killed 3 of the birds. Comet the baby Alex, perdita the female plum head and Jerry the pigeon. Luckily Buddy, pongo and tom got saved. we got another female fantail and her name is Tutu.
Then today i was given a 9 month old sun conure. we are calling him Ollie.
He is bred in captivity but is not hand trained. My question is what do i do to get him to trust me and eventually hand train him? What do they like to eat? Can someone tell me about sunnies?

That suck's badly. So sorry for the horrible loss.

I am not sure what I can tell you about Sun Conures.
The two I have dealt with were both great. The only down side is they can be loud when they are not getting their way, and they are very head strong.
You should be able to tame it within reason. May never become cuddly, though a lot of them can become super cuddly.
Poppy a humanised Sun.

A tribute to my lost ones. RIP.

I'm so sorry for the terrible accident with the cat.

RIP, little ones.

Your sun conure is beautiful. I wish you a long and happy friendship.

So sorry for your loss.

Sunny is beautiful and like any bird, you will need lots of patience to earn Sunny's trust and love. But the rewards are great when you do.
