    my conure seems to suck at preening

    Photos included. He didn't want to sit still for the pictures though. Hi! I've had my yellow-sided green cheek conure for over a year now, and he's always had these black spots on his feathers (mostly on his shoulders/wings). At first, I assumed it was an issue in his diet, so I did a lot of...

    Healthy weight for GCC?

    I'm such a worrier. I weighed my 5 month old green cheek today, and she is 57.3 grams. I saw that 60-80 is the norm for them, and I'm assuming she's fine, but I just wanted to check that the number is probably low because she's still young. I'm going to weigh her more over the next few weeks...

    are these stress bars?

    Hi again. I posted last night about my green cheek conure and sleeping on the bottom of her cage and sleeping a little more during the day but acting normal, otherwise. My mom and me were debating on if she was fine or not but still calling our vet to get his opinion. I completely forgot about...

He was my very first bird. His name was Blue (budgie) and I got him July 16th, 2018. I wanted to get him a friend...

    GCC sleeping at bottom of her cage

    Hi. I’m new here so forgive me if I’m a little all over the place. I have four birds, one parakeet, one cockatiel, and two green cheek conures. This is concerning my one green cheek. So, her name is Callie and I’ve had her since 8/1/19 (August 1st) and she’ll be a year old on April 27th. Her...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
