Handling/Training of a Nanday Conure
Always handle your pet Nanday conure gently. If a person is afraid of a bird, the bird can sense this and it can make it impossible to develop a relationship. Never hit your bird or you will loose it’s trust, probably forever.
To train you pet, the first thing you should do is have it’s wings clipped. A bathroom is a good area for working with your conure to train it. Be sure to cover the mirrors, have the windows closed and covered and the door closed.
Always reward good behavior and each success with loving praise and a treat. Some treats are a cracker, fruit such as a piece of grape, or a nut. Repeat the hand-taming lessons several times a day but for short periods of time, about 20 minutes a session.
Place the Nanday conure on a perch. If it insists on flying off, pick it up and replace it on the perch until it becomes use to the perch and is comfortable with it.
The next step is to take a second perch and gently push into your pet’s chest to encourage it to step up on it. Sometimes offering a treat to coax it up on the perch as it reaches for the treat will help.
Once it steps up without hesitation, you can then substitute your finger for the perch. If your conure tries to bite, you can blow on it and it will soon learn to behave.
These are very bright birds and love learning tricks. Some of the tricks you can teach it to do are to play dead, lay on its back, and even pick up objects and bring them to you. Your conure can also learn to talk with patience and persistence.

Nanday Conure Care and Feeding
A good choice for a starter diet is definitely a commercial seed or pellet based mix that is specially designed for conures or even parakeets. These mixes contain all the important nutrients and basic seeds like sunflower, millet, milo, and oats. You should complete this diet with the regular addition of fresh fruits – apples, oranges or bananas – and green veggies as well – cabbage, carrots, and kale are among the favorites. Bathing dishes are another important part of their care, although you might need to nudge them to bathe. They usually just prefer to spill the bathing dish over – all in the name of fun!
Because of their intelligence, black-hooded parakeets require a lot of sociability and mental stimulation. Owners should prepare to spend a few hours interacting with their bird every day because it will require enough time outside its cage.
