    Green Cheek Conure Is Suddenly Aggressive

    Hello, first time posting here. My mother and I have a 8-year old green cheek conure (9 in November) that we've had since he was a baby. While he can sometimes be a bit bitey, the last week or so he's been increasingly aggressive. He'll bite both of us out of nowhere, and a few times he's drawn...

    Newborn green cheek disappeared in the nest :(

    This is about a pair of green cheeks living with me. Yesterday I heard a newborn chick. Based on the received bits of advice, I let it be fed by parents. I could still hear the chick's sound at the end of the day before they go to sleep. But since this morning I haven't heard anything :( Opening...

    Green Cheek Conure Weight

    Hello everyone! I'm new here but I am hoping I can get some insight from the wonderful bird owners here :) I am trying to get some second opinions on the weight of my GCC to see if she really is at a healthy weight. Her vet told me at our last visit in July 2021 that she needed to lose weight...

    GCC wont stop screaming to get my attention no matter what I do.

    The Issue: My green cheek has become extraordinarily clingy & he screams whenever he knows I'm home but out of sight. It's extremely high-pitched & can go on forever. I'm trying so so hard but it's not getting better, so I'm asking for help. - I know Conures are loud, I'm not expecting him to...

    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...

    Baby Piña!

    Hi friends :o My boyfriend and I adopted a 13 week old Pineapple GCC on Saturday and she is such a sweet girl. She's very well behaved - loves to eat her pellets, loves nutriberries, and is getting slowly accustomed to eating fruits and veggies. I'm wondering if I should book a checkup for her...

    First Parrot

    Hi everyone, For a few years now, I've been stricken with a love for parrots. It started with Cockatiels, and has, more recently, spread to Conures and Quakers. I started a similar thread 2 years ago, but a lot has changed since then. With 2020 providing a lot of idle time to dedicate to...

    Feather plucking and diarrhea

    Hi everyone! I am a feather mom of three. I have a green cheek and cinnamon conure and a budgie. My green cheek has always had light feather plucking issues that never fully go away. He gets better then goes right back to plucking. I’m spending quarantine with my parents and they live in WA...

    Trained, But Always Nippy!

    This is Maebel, our green-cheek/pineapple mutation. She was hatched in January, so she's definitely still a bab birb. I will preface this by saying I understand that GCCs are beaky birds. She is awesome! I'm a first-time bird owner, but well-studied, and my...

    Green cheek conure head bobbing?

    I have been spending a lot of time with my green cheek conure lately but for the past two days he/she is head bobbing and regurgitating food while sitting with me... does this mean he’s a male or is it something both genders do? He just turned 20 a few weeks ago and I haven’t really seen this...

    Green Cheek Foot

    Hello, I am writing because my green cheek seems to have injured her foot. She is only 2/12 months old, and currently weighs 63g. My wife says the bird was on the top of the cage as she was opening it ( it's a top open cage, that has a perch that braces the doors open.) and as she bent down...

    Care guidelines for a pair.

    Looking for some basic information regarding the difference in care for a pair of green cheeks who are clutchmates vs. a single green cheek. Size of cage, additional behavioral issues, training issues, additional equipment, etc. Had perused the forum, but couldn't identify a similar thread...

    Suddenly aggressive GCC

    So I have had my GCC for about three weeks now, I have owned and/or worked with dozens of animal species however he is the first bird I've ever owned. Long story short - he was abandoned at my place of work and the nearest bird rescue is over three hours away. I work at a pet store that sells...
