    I’m trying to figure out how to replace the dowel perch that came with my green cheek conures cage, with a natural one. Any ideas or suggestions? I included pictures of the cage I bought for reference of the length and size.

    Brooding Conure Chick - Seeking Help & Tips?

    I managed to hatch a Green-Cheeked Conures chick that was abandoned by the mother. I've been doing a lot of research about baby care since the mom laid her eggs, but I wasn't all that prepared to raise it myself (w/ no help from mother bird), so I'm hoping to get tips about raising it. It...

    GCCC Over Preening

    Hello All! I have an 8.5yo Green Cheek Conure (Pip) who has within the past few weeks begun overpreening. I've had him for almost a decade and he's never exhibited this behaviour before.

    Healthy but lazy parrots?

    Hello, It’s been a while since I posted! I was able to help Hercules with his screaming and he’s an absolute dream now, took a lot of time and effort of figuring out why he was screaming and once I cracked the code I barely hear him anymore other than his happy chirps and dances. I adopted...

    Hey everyone! I'm new here so I apologize for any mistakes. 🙏 I got a GCC a week ago, it is my first green cheek, and first not fully weaned bird I've got.

    Hi. I recently noticed that Cosmo is avoiding veggies. I put cucumber, carrots, bell peppers and spinach in his food and I add some quinoa, rice and lentils. When I serve it to him I sprinkle it with some oats and chia seeds. He likes veggies and he doesn't reject them, but recently he only...

    Sneezing, scratching and aggression

    My new gc conure (he's 4 going on 5 months old) has begun sneezing about 6 days ago but it started being more frequent 3 days ago. He was really sweet, no biting the first few days we've had him, except the first 2 when he was new to things. After some time and coincidentally or not, when 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...

    I need some advice on how to handle my male parrot’s new behavior

    I have two green cheek conures— Louie and Mango. I’m pretty sure Louie is male and Mango is female. Louie has always been a biter, drawing blood on multiple occasions, and his favorite places to bite are my lips, nose, ears, and fingers; however, he is not always like this. He enjoys cuddling...
