    Why is he acting like this?

    Hello! So I've had my parrot for about 8-9 months. And he was abused because he has a big fear of hands. So about 3 months into owning him I got another GCC. I was told both are males but I'm not sure. Well they have gotten along really well. And Dredd (the first parrot I got) seems to be really...

    What is the best cage for a GCC?

    Hi there, was wondering if anyone can give me a straight answer to what is the no1 best cage for a green cheek conure. I know bigger is better but I'm wanting to know if anyone can tell me a specific cage (make/model). Price isn't a issue as I want the best for the bird, thanks.

    Painting my nails is a gamble..

    I have a green cheek and he has his moods like any parrot but I usually know how to handle him so that he's comfortable and satisfied. I've had him for a little over a year now and I've always painted my nails and it used to bother him at first but now he usually doesn't react to them. I took...

    food in the water

    I keep reading these posts about make sure they always have fresh water. But my GCC has food mixed in his water bowl. Given his food is loaded with vitamins and nutrients so if his food is in the water making it murky, isn't that a good thing? Water filled with nutrients?

    New GCC owner:reading leg band

    Hello everyone! I recently got my new baby (ruby) yesterday from petco and was looking at her leg band and I'm not too sure how to read it or what the numbers mean. Her band says "aloha" and then vertically say "HI 13" and then three more numbers horizontally. I'm assuming she's from Hawaii but...

    Multiple pets? More specifically...

    Hi. I have an almost one year and 5-month-old green cheek conure, and I am considering adopting two pet rats. I would like advice on whether this is a good idea, or whether conures and rats pose certain hazards to each other. It would be nice if someone who has had experience with both species...

    I Might Lose Her

    My Green Cheek Conure, Mia, has been screaming all day when she isn't outside of her cage, she starts at 7 in the morning and goes until she goes to bed minus the hours she is out every day. She is fine when she is out of the cage, i don't even have to be in the room. So I was wondering, is...

    Would anyone like to adopt two rescued GCCs? North NJ

    Long story. I am the owner of a beautiful, tame yellow sided GCC. My mother was watching the bird and accidentally released her. She flew straight up and dissapeared. Out of guilt, and without asking, my parents, who know nothing about birds, bought me not one, but two GCCs, a male and female...

    Strange Body Language & Mixed Signals with Green Cheek Conure

    So, we've had Idris for a month now, and if anyone remembers my previous thread, we took her from a pretty abusive and neglectful home. I think we've made good speed in our progress with her, all things considered. She is around 6 months old, so I know we have a couple years to go in hormonal...

    New Owner

    I just got a new Green Cheek conure from PetCo. The people there were helpful but I'm not sure I trust all of their information. They told me my conure, Mia, is around 11 months old and this is my first ever bird so I have a few questions. It looks like her wings have been clipped but she is...

    Greetings from Boston

    Hi Everyone, my name is Brian but my user name is Bynnie... I got that name from my niece when she was very young. She called me uncle Bynnie because she couldn't say Brian, so it has stuck with me for the last 15 or so years. I bought a pair of parakeets about 10 years ago when my wife and I...

    New Green Cheek Mom (Questions)

    I haven't posted in the introduction threads yet, but new to the forums here and also new to Conures. I've owned Parakeets and hand raised some wild Starlings that I rehabilitated and re-released (just the Starlings were reintroduced to the wild, not the parakeets obviously), but this is our...

I have been doing a little research on them for a while now, but it's not like actually owning one. He(Simone) stayed in his cage all day yesterday, to get him to calm down and...

    Chloe's first words :)

    Today marks a week since I brought Chloe home. Last night she was with me in the family room and took off from my shoulder over to the movies. That's when she said "Chloe bird. Chloe bird." How cool is that? I haven't made any attempt to teach her to talk and if she picks up on things that...

    Conures and seafood?

    My green cheek loves everything we eat. he enjoyed and had fun playing and eating crawfish (after reading a ton of sites). Now i was wondering about other seafood? I was thinking shrimp? He will eat anything and everything we eat and if he doesnt like it, he will leave it alone. So I was curious...
