Well, first of all they are not marron belly conures, they are green cheeks. Maroon bellies have a green tail on top and green cheeks hve maroon on top. I do believe they are cinnamons.

Re: are these cimmamon?

Green-cheeked and maroon-bellied conures are very, very similar to each other and breeders and petstores often confuse them. For what I understand, the main difference (aside from the color on the top of the head) is the topside of the tail feathers which, in maroon-bellies is green and in green-cheeked is a dark red (the underside is red for both species)

So for the past year i have been spending all my time researching maroon-bellied and advertising my babies as maroon-bellied and have sold them as maroon-bellied... oh dear ... lets hope the new owners won't mind when i tell them! in the mean time thank you for filling me in. i feel such a fool! And now i am going to make a phone call to my lovely avairy friend who is selling green cheeks as maroon-bellied.

Oh, I don't think anybody would mind. For one thing, it's the parrot itself that one loves and not the species label and, for another, everybody prefers GCs because they have the reputation of been the most quiet and mildest tempered of the conures.

Yes you are right, but as a breeding point of view i should know what i am breeding/selling. They certainly match up to the personalities of GCs especially the babies they are so affectionate and very comical and cheeky already, they are only 6 weeks old.

Re: are these cimmamon?

These birds are so simular it is hard for many to tell the difference. Thier personality is the same. I have bred both for 15 yrs. I am positive that many cross bred maroons and GCC and didn't even realize it!
