My heart was stolen twice today

First, this GORGEOUS green cheek came in for grooming. I have no idea what color to even call it. the owner called her a turquoise but I feel it was something more. She had the turquoise color but she also had splotches of green. He chest feathers were nearly white too in most areas. she had pale patches of red and yellow though. (pictures taken with owners permission)




And then I decided to go hang out with some of the baby cockatiels we are currently hand feeding (well, the managers are. Even if they trained me, I don't know if I would be comfortable doing it) and I was looking at the oldest clutch and it was love at first sight. I'm really hoping I can convince my parents to let me get a 2nd bird. They just don't think I'm responsible enough which confuses me to no end. I have the money. I have the knowledge. I have the space, time, patients, and really the responsibility for it. Anyways; here's the bird. No idea on gender and not entirely sure how old she is exactly. I'll have to ask my manager. How long does it take for cockatiels to ween generally?

Re: My heart was stolen twice today

Cute all around! That GCC is a turqouise green cheeks. One of the more straightforward of mutations to identify (black head, blue wings).

Definitely a turquoise of SOME kind but I have never seen one with these colorings

Re: My heart was stolen twice today

Pretty babies !!

Actually, I'm wondering if that green cheek is a yellowsided turquoise? The red on his head is unusual, even if he's still in baby plumage. Either way, super cute birds !

edit;; also love the green cheek's clearly unamused expression about all his pin feathers, haha.

Re: My heart was stolen twice today

after googling yellow sided turquoise, yeah probably. The red is definitely weird and it still seems like the belly is a lot more white than all the pictures I'm seeing.

Re: My heart was stolen twice today

My Paris looks exactly like that. EXACTLY but she has better eye shadow and lipstick and a pink chest. She is a yellow sided turquoise GCC.

Oh that cockatiel is gorgeous!!!! I could see you taking that one home!! You could tell your parents that ChristaNL said it's illeagal to only have one parrot in her country¡! The GCC dies look like a yellow sided turquoise of some type. As the mutations are becoming more abundant they seem to not fit exactly into niches.
Paris is gorgeous SunnyClover!

Re: My heart was stolen twice today

It’s short for Green Cheek Conure. They’re great little birds, and very popular!
