    Urgent Help and Advice Needed Please!

    Hi there! I have a couple of questions about my one birdie: I have a lovely pineapple conure around a year old that was bitten by my dog 3 months ago.

    Green cheek conure enjoys lips too much

    I've had Romeo for about a month now. He's 3 months old and everything seems to be going smoothly. He's healthy and not a very picky eater. Also didn't expect him to be such a cuddle bug! I'm new to conures however, I've only had cockatiels up to this point, and everything is very alien to me...

    Frayed Tail and Black Marks on Conure?

    I have a crimson bellied conure named Eddie - he’s 6 months old and I’ve been really concerned about his feathers. I’ve had green cheek conures before (a turquoise and a cinnamon) but he’s my first CBC and it’s only on him that I’ve noticed these black marks on his wings, and the end of his tail...

    Conure behavior; My first conure

    I've bought a lovely green cheek conure yesterday! I don't know the gender yet, I should know this week, but either way I've decided to call him Romeo, so I'll be using he/him for now. He's not 2 months old yet, but he's fully weaned, although he's clearly still a baby, his tail feathers are...

    Does anyone else have a problem with parrots pilfering your food?

    I usually put aside a bit of human food that she can eat. For example, scrambled egg or egg white with no salt, a piece of crust, berries, etc, that goes in the cup on her stand or on a little plate. Lately however, she’s grown bolder about crossing from her stand over to my shoulder, running...

    Pineapple Hybrid?

    Does anyone know what a hybrid between a yellow sided green cheek conure and a pineapple green cheek conure would look like?

    Black Spot on Conures Beak

    Hello there. We noticed this spot on my pineapple green cheek’s (Marty McFly) beak recently. It looks like a bruise that’s growing out, but it’s kinda lumpy. We are very worried. He acts fine otherwise. His beak and nails are growing at a normal rate. He’s about 2 years old, and I don’t think...

    Regurgitating on toys?

    Pellet Opinions?

    What brands do you feed your conures? I have been feeding my green cheek Zupreem (dye-free) pellets, but I’ve noticed that when he eats these his droppings have a sour smell, and his feathers seem to develop black spots (not entirely sure it’s due to the food or something else though). Either...

    why has my 2yo conure lost main chest feathers?

    My green cheek conure on the right has lost adult feathers like the left conure has and only has down feathers remaining; I just noticed this and do not know if this is normal for this kind of bird? I dont remember this happening with the other bird.

    Please Share Experience

    Hi everyone! I made another post similar to this, but on the conure page. In the next year or so I'm hoping to get my own personal bird, so I am in no rush to make a decision. After so much research I am torn between Green Cheek Conures and Peachfaced Lovebirds. On week days I'm typically...

    Please Share Experiences

    Within the next year or so I'm looking to get my first personal bird within a year, so no rush. For a long time I was dead set on lovebirds, because they are so sweet and I love the sounds they make. But after spending a few hours on some different threads I'm really drawn towards conures. What...

    Hey guys! New to this forum :) I just got my first green cheek conure almost 3 weeks ago! Her name is Stella and she's almost 3 months old. I noticed she gets pretty noisy once I cover her. She'll mutter, lightly chatter, but when there's a small disturbance or when someone makes one small...

    Hello! My conure had a broken tail feather and I was trying to get the it off since they always end up breaking off shortly after anyways. Well, I ended up accidentally PULLING THE WHOLE FREAKING FEATHER RIGHT OUT! Will she bleed now? There was no blood on it when it came out? Will you...
