differences between green cheeks?

Hi everyone!

In the research process of deciding our next bird (of which the green cheek is a contender) we're trying to find information on if there are discernible differences amongst the green cheeks, plain, pineapple, yellow side, turquoise. I've read that pineapple are the most shy for example.

Does anyone feel there are characteristics particular to a certain color mutation?

Thanks!

Re: differences between green cheeks?

Welcome to the forum

IMO, apart from the Sun and Jenday most GCC are pretty placid.. I have also heard that the Pineapple is the most mellow.

Re: differences between green cheeks?

I never knew that about pinapples!
My Green Cheek Blue conure is pretty placid, although he does have his moments. Although I think it's hard to say as they all have their own invividual personalities.

Re: differences between green cheeks?

I have got a Pineapple GCC, he is far from shy, he will happily annoy anyone wether he has met them before or not. He is quite quiet, never really has squawking fits (except when hes sleeping, he does sleep talk quite alot) and is happy to sit with anyone and preene himself/them.

Re: differences between green cheeks?

I think each bird is an individual. but that the gcc's as a whole would be similar regardless of color mutation. just pick your favorite color and enjoy

This. I don't think that their color mutation has any real bearings on the personalities.

I think it's best with a GCC, to decide what color you think you'd prefer, but go spend time with a variety and you'll find that your decision should be based on the individual personality of the bird.

Re: differences between green cheeks?

I agree with KatherineI: each individual bird has a distinct personality.

For what it's worth, my recently adopted 2-yr-old turquoise GCC is an incredibly sweet, quiet bird. Wants to live on our shoulders, preen our hair and ears, and shred a little paper. I've only heard the occasional peep--he is really quiet. (Of course, this is in comparison to our Amazon, who is quite vocal!)

Re: differences between green cheeks?

I breed them and I get 8 different colors. It is all just the bird not color. I had 3 normal Turq. In a clutch 1 was very laid back and 1 was into everything, very jelouse and a handful. Third 1 just wanted to cuddle. All the same mutation or color all different personalities. As far as pineapples being shy? Never heard that, I have always heard they r the red heads of the bunch and r fireryer but never shy so that is very odd to me. All my pineapple babies r very out going and fun.

Re: differences between green cheeks?

Jonny, you're GC looks like a yellowside, not pineapple.


I've heard differences between blue quakers and green quakers, but never heard about personality differences between the different GCC mutations. There are different subspecies of green cheeks, although I fear that they have all been hybridized in the USA, so if there were any personality differences between them, albeit minor, who'd be able to tell now?

Sun and Jenday Conures are not in the same genus, let alone species, as green cheeks. GCC are in the pyrrurrha genus.

It is possible for other traits to "hitch a ride" with the color genes, but I think with GCC you won't find any verifiable facts about this, only opinions and anecdotes to sort through.

I'd say GCC are typically very active and feisty. Mine is more of a handful than our much larger Cape.
