    Parents want to clip my GCC's wings

    With the holidays and moving cross country due to a job, things have been extremely hectic here, and my GCC Gordi has been on a lot of roadtrips all over the place. Additionally, he is male and is almost two years old which I believe adds a hormonal factor to it. I believe it is just a hectic...

    Hello everyone! I’m the new owner of a very cuddly green cheek conure who was a rehome! As we are adjusting to one another I will be seeking advice on diet and training! She isn’t my first bird (I also have two cockatiels in the home) but she is definitely the most needy of my attention! Glad...

    Training to recognize color: advice please

    Hello all, I’ve been clicker training with Apple, my GCC, for a few months now and she loves it. The clicker training helped her pick up targeting a stick, fetching a little ring and placing it gently on my hand, etc. but now we’ve plateaued. I’ve got this game which she enjoys where she goes...

    Hi all! My in-laws have 2 conures and my landlord has a macaw, now 5 years later I've finally gotten a baby green cheek conure (Santiago) who i spend every second I am able to with (8+hrs daily). I also have 2 budgies that had to be given up by their former owner. The budgies can fly and do in...

    One VS Multiple Birds?

    Hello everyone! I have one bird now, a male GCC that is 2 1/2 years old. I've been contemplating getting an additional bird and now that I'm getting closer and closer to graduating from university I'm considering it harder. I plan on going to medical school, but that would result in him getting...

    Why does he do this?? (Help??)

    Hi everyone! This is my first forum post (not sure if this is the right place to post it), and I've finally decided to post because I'm so upset! I have two beautiful green cheek conures, a normal (Kiwi) and a cinnamon (Chai), but one isn't so beautiful anymore.... Around November last year I...

    Conure vs Lovebird?

    Hey guys! So I totally caught the bird bug and I’m thinking about getting a second bird. I’ve narrowed down my options to either a GCC or a peachie. I’m totally stuck between the two and was looking for some advice. For some background: I’m a college student, not living in dorms, and I do have...

    considering a GCC

    Hi all! I currently have a wonderful Rosy Bourke, and I've been thinking about getting another bird, but I have some questions. I absolutely would NOT house them together, but would they be ok coexisting with supervised time in my room? I'm a college student, living at home, and I have the...

    Window Perch

    Hello! My GCC loves perching on my window as close as he can to get the best view outside. I've decided I want to make him a better perch than what he has (view pic for reference). I'm going to go for PVC and attach it with suction cups on either end to make a perch the length of the window...

    Second Cage??

    Hello parronts! I currently have an extremely spacious cage for my GCC. Pic attached. He's fine being in it while I'm within view but the moment I step into another room he starts whining. He's my alarm clock which I really dont mind... loud screeches in the morning are very welcome in my...

    Hormonal and VERY BITEY GCC!

    Hi everyone! My GCC is about 1 and a half years old, and as of 3 or 4 weeks ago he started getting... frisky. Having researched GCC mating behaviors, it has come to my attention that he is absolutely decided that my brother is his mate. Which is A: sorta gross and B: super inconvenient because...

    Conure Biting Issue

    My GCC is a biting fiend. He does it in a friendly manner with me but with my boyfriend he gets aggressive. Like when he took him out of the cage today without me here, he lunged straight at his fingers instead of the treat he had in his fingers. He will never lunge at me... But my boyfriend...

    Molting? GCC

    Hello all! This is my first post. I've been lurking on the forums for a bit. Got my Yellow sided GCC in March of this year. He is now 6 months old. I believe he has started molting but I'm not quite sure. We have had a couple really nice, warm days here in New England. I took him for a walk...

    Cage suggestions?

    We're getting ready to welcome a little pineapple GCC towards the end of June, and I'm working on slowly getting things ready before that. We're slowly switching out our pans with ceramic, bird-proofing the house, removing dangerous chemicals and the like. I've got some perches and toys...

    How did you stop birdy bites? :(

    I have a 4 month old GCC named Jäger. Shop owners warned me that birds go through a sort of "teething phase" just like other animals. He lets me handle him almost perfectly. Hes starting to learn the idea of stepping up onto my hand (associates it with the idea of coming out of the cage), i can...

    Urgent Broken or Injured Wing?!?

    I have a green cheek conure and shes a sweetheart and she is very bonded to me even though I have only had her for 10 days. She is clipped, but she still manages to always fly very well and always flies onto me. One day, I noticed she isnt as active, or flighty and is more fluffed up throughout...
