The Flock! (Video)

Recently I let my Senegal into the Budgies' room and they all have got on together so well. My Conures are also in the same room. I am so happy there are no trouble between them so now I can spend time with them all in 1 room. I've done some recall training with my Maroon Bellied Conure (Tai) he is really getting the hang of returning to his post, need a bit more improvement yet, he is still a bit rusty. My Senegal would only willing to do recall when he's on his own (he is the smart one) so he's just happy to be on the side watching the monkeys making a fool of themselves. Here is the video ‪The Flock‬‏ - YouTube

The budgie in the middle is adorable

how long did it take you to train your conures to recall?

Daisy! they are so clingy, I only have to hold out my finger sometimes and they would all flies over. You will know what I mean when you get your beautiful turquoise Conure. He/she will be stuck to you like a magnet

Eee shush! Haha! I cannot wait I really hope he/she is a velcro bird I don't care how annoying it would be. I'm also going to start harness training straight away so I can take them everywhere with me, it would be lovely to go out with my new buddy

@ Daisy, As you already know, Green Cheeks are known to be velcro birds. I hope yours will be just the way you wanted. Having him/her deliver to you is so risky, but I know you have no other way to get it cause of your age and not being able to drive. I would love to harness train mine, but 3 Conures and 1 Senegal is too much hard work to take outside, even as 1 by 1. Maybe one day I shall just harness train one and that would be my Senegal. He is so calm, I don't think he fears anything

awh that's really sweet!

How come you think the delivery is risky ? I'm worried now! The breeder is bringing it himself

@ Daisy, I just think it's better if you go there and see the bird first and pick the one that would bond to you and to your preference. You said that this breeder is nice, I hope he'll bring the right bird for you. And to answer your question from my other thread, Yes! I will have more birds in the future

Oh yay! What species would you be looking into?

And yeah I know what you mean but from the pictures they're all very beautiful and they've been raised in a family home etc and are all very very sweet

I don't know yet. On the spur of the moment I just don't know what I'll end up with

1st are the budgies, 2nd is the 1 year old female GCC, seller said she was handreared, but now I know she is an aviary bird (parents reared). I didn't know much about parrots at the time and wasn't wise enough to deal with that seller. 3rd is the Maroon Bellied Conure. 4th Cinnamon GCC, and last one is the Senegal, he is a perfect round up of the flock for now

my Senegal? I just love this guy. He is soooo goofy. He is still quite young but already very clever. Compared to my Conures my Sennie is a lot more quieter, he poops a lot less than the Green Cheeks, like once every 30 mins. He is loyal and as clingy as the GCC. He is also very calm, not as jumpy as the Green Cheeks. He is active, but not hyper as the GCC. If I could change anything about him? there isn't anything, he is perfect!
