Conure Training

Many individuals say that having conures is a delight. These intelligent birds may also be friendly and gratifying to educate. Conures are members of the avian family Psittacidae and, with five recognised species, are among the most popular pet birds today. Conures can learn to talk, albeit their voices may sound extremely different from those of other parrot species. They can also be trained to follow directions and perform a variety of tricks provided you, as the owner and trainer, are knowledgeable about how to do so. If you already possess a conure and want to improve its talents and train it, here are some pointers to get you started.

Conures are incredibly bright birds that can readily learn with the right instruction. Observations of parrot social behaviour have shown that they need attention and may get bored quickly. As a result, conures like exercising and being active, yet they are also gentle birds. Conures fighting with other birds in their cages are quite unusual. Conures are highly gregarious and playful, therefore toys and other objects are wonderful additions to cages and aviaries to keep them entertained.

To begin, if you wish to teach your conure, you must first cut its wings. There is a section on this website devoted to explaining why and how conure wings are clipped. Simply explained, wing cutting makes handling the conure easier and does not hurt the bird in any way.

The next thing to remember is to start training in a neutral location. There is relatively little distraction in neutral settings, such as harsh light, noise, things, or open windows and doors. According to some sites, the bathroom is an excellent location to start since the area is tiny and you can simply cover windows and limit your conure’s movements. In the bathroom, place a perch and cover the mirrors and glass surfaces with cloth.

Have some conure snacks on available before you start training, such as almonds or sunflower seeds. When handling your conure, be careful and patient, since anger may quickly distract or scare it. When you let the conure to sit on the perch and it flies away, gently pick him up and replace him on the perch. You may need to repeat this many times for him to grasp what you want him to accomplish. Place another perch near the bird’s breast and direct it to fly higher. You may use a keyword for this, and you can put a treat above the conure’s head to get it to climb. When the conure understands the notion of the climbing command, you may replace your hand or finger for the perch.

Allow for 10 to 15 minutes of workout every day. Constantly incorporate play in your lessons, and always encourage your conure verbally. This will help it remember its teachings better.
