Thanks he is named after a player in my local football team Hull City, all my animals are named after Hull players 😄 Elmo is great at eating all his fruit and veg he has had his first bath at my house today he jumped into the sink and was splashing under the tap it was great to watch unfortunately I didn't have my phone to take pictures it was in the lounge, and I couldn't get it as I had my dogs in there and I don't trust them with him. They wouldn't harm internationally but it's not worth the risk!

Congrats on you new baby. He is adorable. My gcc loves baths, and paper lunch bags. Best two toys ever.

Congratulations, he's gorgeous! I will say though that you should add some foraging toys/shredding toys to his cage so he has more to do and more materials to explore Scrap the dowel perches too, they're terrible things for feet. Some natural perches, a cotton perch and an abrasive perch for trimming nails (kept low down in the cage) would be perfect. You see a lot of birds kept on only dowel and honestly they can develop some quite nasty foot problems! Not picking on you or anything, just trying to help out so you don't encounter any issues

I already own birds, although Elmo is my first Conure I'm fairly experienced and the cage he was in was just the cage we brought him home in the cage was far to small to start with for a permanent cage, and I wouldn't touch a cotton perch as to many birds get there toys/feet caught up in them 😔 , Elmo is in a large cage with all the appropriate accessories, he also has a huge play gym all natural perches and enough toys to open a pet shop! But thanks for the concern, but as all my animals I only get them after I have all the advice and knowledge I can possibly get to give them a great life. 😁
