"I purchased Kiwi about a year ago, he was half a year old and handfed which helped him be more social. He used to scream a lot more when his wings were clipped, but now that we have let them grow out he is less dependent and flying around the house. I should have worked on potty training before hand haha but it was too late. I'm now trying to associate a noise with every time he poops, hopefully it can become our summer project. He is a definite part of the family, he sometiems walks on the floor with the dogs, though no barking yet. He gets up early in the morning, and if I set food out for him in the kitchen and some water trickling into a bowl he will be happy and singing to himself while I get more sleep. He loves grapes and breaking into mixed nuts tubs in the pantry. His favorite is taking warm showers with me, he will sing and make water noises till I let him on my finger and sprinkle water on him till he is soaked! As for drying him, I usually have to point the hair dryer in his general direction till he grooms dry more. His vocabulary includes water noise, his own version of 'please' and 'thank you', kiwi, and 'what are you doing' in a very gravely voice. He likes to meet new people and having his head rubbed poofy :] which of course makes up for all the times when he's not adorable which is just poop and alert screeching. I'd only recommend a conure when you're prepared for a little flying toddler, the mess and misunderstanding which gives way to a love for the person they are. They live for at least 20 years, and though it's not easy, I can't imagine giving him away to a stranger ever. "
