Re: Is my baby Green Cheek acting normally?

Congratulations, it sounds like you're off to a good start with a wonderful companion.
Conures can be such sweethearts - but there's much to learn to guide him into being a good birdie with a human companion.

You might want to stop allowing him access to newspaper.
Later he may start shredding it up as a nesting behavior, which may generate high hormone levels in his blood.
A hormonal bird can become problematic with screaming, biting, and anti-social behavior.
You want to avoid anything that might lead to stimulating a lone bird into breeding behaviors.
Shredding newspaper can be one of those, as can behaviors like hiding in the dark under things like newspaper.

Instead of paper, to keep him away from his poop perhaps consider getting the plastic "egg crate" sheets mentioned in post #13 of this thread. GCC Destroying pellet bedding

They are made to install in ceilings under 4 foot fluorescent lighting tubes.
Here in the USA they're available at large hardware stores in the lighting department.
I don't know about down under though.

I'm just simply amused by the post is a green cheek acting normally.....they always are, and always are not! Depends on how you want to look at it.

Re: Is my baby Green Cheek acting normally?

Sounds like a young GCC, congratulations! They are personality plus!! You may go through a nippy phase, s
o go ahead and read up biting now so you have a plan in place! GCC can be love bug then bite and be bossy, then back to cute cuddling....
Congratulations on finding such a great species of parrot, may you have many many happy years together!!
