    Conure with splayed legs

    Hello everyone! I’ve acquired a 4 almost 5 week old green check conure baby about a week ago. I’m a vet assistant and one of the doctors I work with is helping me out with him but I figured I’d post on here for some tips and tricks. I don’t have pics of his legs before we started taping them...

    DIET HELP: first time GCC owner.

    Hi y’all! I’m going to (potentially) purchase an adult male green cheek conure today. I’ve been in touch with the breeder and he seems like a good fit. Of course, only an in person meeting will tell for sure. However, I’d like to be prepared should I decide to add him to the family. He’d on a...

    Hey y’all, I’ve been doing tons of research lately and I’ve decided to get a green cheek conure. I’m in the process of contacting local breeders and getting information from them, but I thought I’d ask your thoughts on some basics. Favorite cage for a single conure?

    Unsure if this is a normal beak appearance...

    Hey all, So Chewy paid a visit to the vet last month and all seemed well. I had them file his beak because there was a bit of a top layer that had developed on it. I know that flakey beaks are normal during moulting, however to vet said to keep an eye on it because overgrowth can be related to...

    Hey guys, I'm looking for some advice regarding Chewy, my GCC. He just turned two in December, and like a month or so before it's like a switch flipped. He has been HORRIBLE.

    Multiple Conure help

    I have a GCC at home and I've been thinking about getting another GCC as a companion. Today I went into my local pet shop and saw 2 GCCs which appeared to be bonded because they were in "separate" cages but sitting next to each other. I say "separate" because there's only a glass divider...

    Conure Chattering?

    My Yellow-Sided Conure: Daenerys has always made this chattering sound since the day we rescued her. If I had to compare it to anything: It sounds like a quieter version of an angry Donald Duck. None of my other Conures make this sound, not even her cage-mate: Shades (Greencheek.) Is this...

    Suddenly doesn't like fresh food

    Mercury for the past week hasn't been the happiest eating fresh foods. I'm a little confused about it since he was eating well for so long, I stopped giving him fruit everyday (low sugary fruits) and now he barely touches his food. He'll eat pellets and forage for treats but refuses veggies and...

    Aggressive Abused Conure

    I have 9 birds in total, all rescues: 4 Budgies, 4 Conures and an African Grey. October, last year, I rescued 2 of my 4 Conures: A male and a female Greencheek, both 6 years old. They had no names when they were turned in, which I found odd that someone could own birds for 6 years and never name...
