    My green cheek conure’s wings are black..

    I’ve noticed my green cheek conure Dexter getting black lines at the ends of his feathers on his wings. At first I thought he was just molting but after doing more research I saw that it could be because of over preening. He does like to take baths and whenever there is a body of water near him...

    Friend got a new Crimson-Bellied Conure, best way to raise/train him?

    Hello! My friend has just gotten a new Crimson-Bellied Conure who is around a month old. They want me to help them with raising and training the little guy. Some of the bird’s history: My friend bought him from a lady whose conures had accidentally bred (bit of a red flag IMO). He’s apparently...

    Help! Two conures bonded without me

    Hello, First time posting! I got a conure from Petsmart on Columbus Day (Cheeky - gray and green). It was very frightened but got more used to being in the house (still not warmed up to me though). Then a week later my fiancé got a conure (Angel) without consulting me and started putting the...

    New human baby now conure biting

    Hi All. I’m hoping you have some advice please. I’ve had a green cheek conure named Tiki for the last 8 years. She’s been pretty friendly, steps up reliably, and absolutely loves cuddling in my hair. We haven’t done much training with her but have been in general pretty lucky with her behavior...

    Seeking Info on PBN Breeders

    Hello, I recently rescued a cinnamon green cheek with a leg band, but breeder ID is PBN. I saw on a previous thread that PBN stands for Preferred Bird Network but didn’t see any additional information besides that. Information on PBN seems pretty limited online, it does not seem to have a FB...

    Can a peach-fronted conure live with a cockatiel?

    Hey guys, so I have three cockatiels... They live loose in a room of their own plus a very large place in the garden, which is closed. I want to buy a peach fronted conure, but I don't have cages to separate them and I wanted to breed them together. As I have a space of more or less 100m², would...

    Best place to shop for cages

    Hi all! I’m looking for a new cage for my Jenday/Nanday conure and haven’t been satisfied with chewy or Amazon selections. Does anyone know of other, better online stores to shop? Favorite conure cage? Thanks!

    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...

    Green cheek pairing mutations

    Hi everyone, Please forgive me if these specific pairings have already been discussed, because I could not find them. Calculating genetics this complicated is something I struggle with so I’d appreciate your help. I have a male yellow-sided turquoise who I am considering attempting to pair and...

    Aggression towards family

    Bo is still very aggressive towards my family members. The weirdest thing to me is that he’ll be on my hand, Totally fine and happy, but if one of my family members enters he will puff up, scream and bite… me? Extremely hard, worse than when I first got him. Is there any way I can get him used...

    Bird can fly but he's lazy

    I have two conures, they were lightly clipped as a baby by the breeder but still very strong fliers even during that time. A while ago one got sick, he's doing much better now but doesn't like flying much. His brother will do laps around the room and flies everywhere but he just prefers...

    Why is my sun conure making this noise?

    I’m pretty worried since my sun conure keeps making this noise. Is this normal? She doesn’t have a runny nose, is very active, pooping and eating and playing like normal. I’ve heard Sun conures make a variety of different noises which are usually harmless but this one really gets me a bit...

    Our first second bird

    A little over a year ago we got our first bird a two month old green cheeked conure we named Hobgoblin aka Hobs. Over the course of the year he has become a bright, snuggly, fun little bird. We enjoy him very much. Yesterday we decided to add to the flock and brought home a 5 month old pearl...

    Can GC conures and budgies get along

    First off I'm not sure if this is the forum to post this on, but I was scrolling through Craigslist and came across a green cheek conure that was recently posted. Didn't expect to, but I kinda really want it now. Though I doubt I'll actually be able to get it depending on how my parents feel...

    Hormonal feather destruction

    Hi all! My bird is at it again with barbering/chewing her feathers. I found out this past spring she was a girl when two eggs appeared in her cage initially I thought her barbering/over preening was due to low humidity in the house over fall and winter, but now it seems the barbering begins...

    Sun conure bites and won’t let go

    I just got a conure yesterday and have had him all set up in my room, he likes hanging out on the top of the cage and to talk. He is very beautiful my only problem is his biting. I know birds are anxious about new environments so I understood at first and would leave him alone unless it was...

    One conure super calm, the other furious with me.

    So I have two male green cheek conures, I've only had them for a few months now. They were both fine with me up until this point, then one of them got sick about a month ago (Salem). He has been taken to a vet, all good now. When he got sick his personality changed, he used to be more neutral...

Zara eats 2-3 tablespoons of Higgins vita seed conure blend, about 2-3 tablespoons of fresh fruit/vegetables, 1tsp of Tops pellets in a day, plus nutriberries as a...

    Is this egg fertilized?

    Hello! I have two conures (one female and the other is unsure) and one of them has been laying eggs. I heard that you could tell if it is fertilized or not by cracking one open and looking for a “bullseye” on the yolk. I tried on an egg laid yesterday that cracked when she pushed it off and this...
