    New Green Cheek Conure living on the ocean

    Well unfortunately it’s not a tropical ocean, but the Gulf of Maine/Atlantic Ocean on the coast of New Hampshire. Brought this GCC home today, and I had not intended to acquire my first bird from a national pet chain. But it was a great personality and I was displeased at the quality of its...

    GCC poop is a weird color and looks weird

    I got a green cheek conure 2 days ago and named him melon (he's around 2 months old), he has been active, although not much but I am guessing it's because he's still getting used to the place. I have a few questions about gcc poops 1. Do they poop a lot? Melon keeps pooping a lot, less than 5...

    Strange behaviour?

    I have a sweet GCC named Fuji, he is 4 years old and yesterday I believe he vomited. This happened after he got a few sips of CBD oil by mistake. He is otherwise behaving very normally except for one thing, he seems to sip water between every mouthful of pellets. He doesn't do this with all...

    Should I get another bird?

    I have a GCC that is about to turn 1. I'm away from the house a lot for school and I'm scared he's getting lonely. Should I wait another year or so or just try now? And, what type of bird should I adopt, if I do get another?

    Sophie and Solstice (GCCs)

    Hi! I'm relatively new to conures, but I'm having a great time getting to know my green cheeks and their quirky personalities! I acquired Sophie (a yellow-sided green-cheeked conure) about 2.5 months ago. Unfortunately, I recently found out that she has an enlarged heart, but she's getting...
