Taming a conure, getting another one will it help the taming process?
I recently brought a 12 month old green cheek conure, who has spent most of his life in an avary and then in a small pet shop cage. I was originally going to buy one that was already hand reared, but I saw him in a pet shop and I couldn’t help but feel bad for him, so I brought him.
In the past I’ve tamed a cockatiel that I purchased from a pet shop so I know I can do it again, but conures are different. I’m just wondering if I was to purchase another conure, such as a hand reared or hand tamed one that would come and perch on my shoulder etc, whether that would help with taming my 12 month old one. Would having another one encourage him to sit with that bird if it was on me etc. and if so, Would you recommend another gcc conure or another breed? And would a female or male be better?
Thank you for youyour time
