    Chompy Conure

I honestly at first thought she might’ve been chomping out of stress which couldve very well been since she was new to everything...

    tons of Pin feathers? Is this normal?

    I was just spending time with Millie, and I noticed she has tons of pin feathers. Im confused, because you cant really see them unless you look closely. She allowed me to hold her, and I gently looked through her feathers and her back is COVERED in them. I would be happy to help her, but she...

    Suggestions?:Millie refuses to go back to her cage at night/ Is terrorizing family members

    I have a fully flighted green cheek conure, Melisandre. She is a really good bird, except she uses her flight skills as an advantage to get away when its time to go to bed. Every time I try to get her to step up, she will fly away. I enjoy letting her have her flight feathers, because I believe...

    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.

    Unsure if this is a normal beak appearance...

    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...
