    Conure dislikes my mom's phone?

    Hello!! I am kinda new to this forum and to owning a conure. In all honesty I will probably post a lot here given that my knowledge of their behaviour is very weak. We got Cosmo a few weeks ago and he's so wonderful! The whole family loves him. But I went on a 3 day trip a few days ago and my...

    Conure baby doesn't like to eat much

    Please bear with my long story. I have a month and 2 weeks (approx.) old Green Cheek Conure baby. Before getting her, I didn't know that the breeder used to directly crop-feed her which technically left her no experience of handfeeding and actually tasting the food. Moreover, I didn't know the...

    My sun conure keeps flicking her one wing

    Just got a sun conure. 12 weeks old. She flicks her left wing and chirps almost every time. I dont know if it's attention seeking or discomfort. The lady I bought her off clipped her wings and left the outer 2 feathers untouched. It's the same flick as my other conure does when he's getting...

    Confused about first visit to the vet

    Hi everyone! I'm new here, but I've been reading all your posts for a long time and am so impressed with the wealth of knowledge and care you possess. Firstly, I don't believe my darling bird is ill -- he just had a routine physical and consultation yesterday. My main question is whether I...

    I’ve recently got a cockatiel (8 weeks old now) and she lives in a cage since she started flying and today I went home with a green cheek conure (7 weeks old) & she flies but not yet too high. my question is, is it possible for them to put in one cage since they are still young?

    Something wrong with poop + Attention seeking

    Hey everyone, I noticed something a little different about Kiwi's poop today, SLIGHTLY URGENT PART: it was a normal color but their were no urates (the water around the poop learned that from google lol). My first thought was maybe he's dehydrated but that doesn't really make sense since he's...

    Hey everyone, My 3m. GCC sneezes. I've been reading and it says that they occasionally sneeze to clear their nostrils. But frequent sneezing and the discharge of mucus is a cause for concern. Thankfully they're is no mucus and I really don't know how frequent is too frequent. What I have noticed...

    Question about bathing

    Hi everyone, I gave my 3 month gcc his first bath a few days ago, he didn't seem to hate it which I'm really glad about. I'm wondering how often I should bathe him per week. I read something about how you should bathe your bird more often in the summer than in the winter, (which is logical) but...

    2m. GCC toy situation

    Hey everyone, I adopted my 2 month old GCC Kiwi, a couple weeks ago, and he's doing pretty good. The first few days having him all he wanted was cuddles and food, he would slowly warm up to us (he was always friendly to us, I'm just noticing that he trusts us more and more and gets excited when...

    Conure loves biting my lips

    My almost 3 month GCC loves biting my lips I try not to let him do it too much (it doesn't hurt, I'm just worried about the germs I'm giving to him and vise versa). He does it when we cuddle, he's all happy and tries to nibble my lips is this normal? Is this a sign he's bonding with me? We got...
