Ill trade you my conure that won't part with me. I can't even do the dishes without her trying to stick her head where it doesn't belong. She is too curious for her own good.

Have you tried treats to lure him where he's supposed to be?

Yeah I tried all the advice...none seems to work I think it cause he knows houw to fly he don't want to come to us he wants to fly away from us....I was told by some one who raises birds that I should trim them a lil more cause they will always grow back...

Honestly I still think one week is not long enough for him to get used to the surroundings; you can't compare him to your previous parrotlet - every bird is different, try to learn from the new bird and not the old one. If it was me I would give him at least one month to get used to inside and outside his cage in his own time when he feels comfortable; don't force him to do anything he doesn't want to do or else you'll scare him off and lose all the trust. One step at a time - you'll gain much further this way. Do keep us updated

To me trimming his wings is kind of cheating the system, it's like forcing the bird to co-operate; no offence to anyone that trims their birds' wings - it's your choice and if you feel it works for you that's fine, no objection from me

well i did trim them a lil more he can still fly but not as high and i dont need to pile objects together to get him back down....i think once he molts and gets his new feathers in and relizes he can fly much better i wont have to worry about it....as of right now i think its better for him this way...

It is sometimes very useful if you could stick train the quaker, when he is in high places out of your reach you could then use a long stick and get him to hop on the stick to get him down; also it is useful if you have a cage agressive bird - you could then use the stick to get him out of the cage without getting bitten

Just let him do things in on his own terms for now, let him be the boss, then once he trusts you then you can take the "boss" role back. You're doing well, keep up the good work.

We it seems as though he's getting comfortable with me he's currently fluffed up on the top of my head just setting there just as though he found a comfy new home...I figure it was cause my hair and head don't hurt his feet but whatever...

I have noticed you said your quaker purrs before, mine purrs too when he's on my shoulder, he purrs like a pussy cat . What color is your quaker?

I can only think quakers purr when they're happy otherwise my quaker would have attacked me when he's on my shoulder, he doesn't hold back from attacking if he's unhappy.

thats good last night he was climbing from my head to my husbands head he wouldnt come off so he slept in bed with me....he seemed to do ok then he was scared again when we came back down stairs so i decided that by keeping him in the dinning room during the day and bringing him to the living room in the evening when the kids go to bed so that way he can adjust comfortable with the noise....

I do not recommend sleeping with a bird... Many have died tragic deaths when they have been rolled on during the night.
