    Bird safe plants?

    I have a 2 year old GCC named Kiwi, and I'm looking to become a plant mom. I currently have zero plants and no experience. I plan to do research and make sure all my plants are "pet friendly" (if anyone has any almost impssible to kill, pet friendly plant reccomendations, that would be helpful...

    Xavier’s eye

    Xavier is a two year old pearly green cheek conure. So I got Xav out of his cage this morning and he has a big pink mark on the skin around his eye. He’s a little nippy so I had to zoom to get the pic while he was eating. I’m hoping it’s just that he scratched it. This is his first injury ever...

    Black skin under wing?

    Hi! I adopted a new gcc (I think American dilute to be specific) recently (Peaches) and I haven't noticed anything wrong with her. She doesn't have any symptoms for any other diseases from what I've observed. However, today when she stretched her wings, I noticed one of them seemed dark. I...

    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...

    VERY clingy 4 month old GCC

    I just got a 4 month old Green cheek conure, and I absolutely love her! She is extremely playful, loves to learn eats like a pig (picky eater who?) but I apparently am unable to even leave the room at all without her squawking as if she’s being murdered! I’ve had her less than a week so I know...

    Green Cheek conure odd behavior

    So my green cheek conure is doing a new, weird behavior. She's around 4 years old. She has a furry tent in her cage that she sleeps in but recently at random times of the afternoon she goes in the tent and is kind of laying or in a weird position making a constant weird noise. The noise is tough...

    green cheek conure displays of aggression?

    Hello all, I have a 1 1/2 year old male green cheek conure that I believe is showing signs of hormonal aggression towards one specific member of my household as well as outside visitors. When we first got him he was good with everyone for the most part, up until several months ago when what...

    My GCC is afraid of hands

    Hi everyone, I’ve had Joey, my green cheek Conure for 5 months now and I got him when he was 10 week old. We let him roam around the house (supervised) and he is in his cage only when we are not home or when it’s his bedtime. He has always been very friendly with everyone and definitely not...

    Bonded rescue conures

    I kind of inherited a pair of green cheeks after their owner (family friend) could not keep them anymore. They have been in the same cage together since the original owner got them (3-4 years) and are now bonded. I've been training them every day for a few months now, but when it comes to cage...

    Pictures Mac becomes an iPhone!

    Mac decided he would become a handheld bird today, no longer wasting energy on perching and fully portable XD After a really good head scratch session with my hand over him, he decided to let go and curl up in my palm for even more head scratches. I swear this bird is such a nut, but he’s my...

    gym ideas??

    I have a clothes rack that I'm not using, and I want to put it to good use for my birdies!! But I'm stuck on ideas of what exactly to do with it. It's the same as the one in the photo. I'm planning on wrapping vet tape around the top pole and hanging boings, swings, and a climbing net from the...

    2.5 month old GCC already hormonal?

    Hi everyone, so I was spending time with Mac this morning and he started head bobbing like birds tend to do before regurgitating. He didn’t actually spit up anything as far as I could tell, and stopped after a bit and requested head scratches. I know that regurgitation can be a sign of...

    Urgent Parrot Landed on Toothbrush, Dipped Wing in Toothpaste

    Something made my GCC decide it was a good idea to fly into the bathroom and, instead of landing anywhere else, land on my toothbrush that I was getting ready to use, complete with toothpaste. She managed to dip the edge of her wing and a section of her chest into the toothpaste. I’ve had her...

    Meet Opal

    Hi all, this is Opal my family’s GCC. We got her Christmas last year but I have only just joined this forum. We all adore her, she is the sweetest little mischievous cuddle pie . We’re all still learning and I’m hoping that I can learn lots as a member here, I would hate to do anything to hurt her.

    What paperwork should a bird have?

    Hi, I am getting a GCC on monday from a lady that says she breeds bird in a family environment. I was wondering what paperwork the bird is supposed to come with? Are leg bands, birth certificate important? Thanks
