    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...

    Eating Quirks?

    Is your bird ever....weird...when they eat? My GCC cant seem to just sit still and eat. I know conures are known for being little clowns but he has like....a little pattern that he does lol. Is this normal? Anyone else have these little quirks? Tried to post a video but it didnt upload for...

    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...

    Possible early signs of PBFD?

    hi everyone! I have a GCC who will turn a year old in a little over a month so she’s pretty young. Something I’ve noticed for a while is that the feathers on her rump seem to be a bit odd. I thought it was just her molting but her rump area seems to be a bit sticky. I give her scritches there...

    1 or 2 Green Cheek Conures!?

    Hi I am planning on getting a green cheek conure (or two). I need some info on keeping two conures together. I will probably get two young green cheek conures that are the same gender and from the same batch. I will also house them in a very large $350 cage and they will have adequate space. The...

    Is my conure bathing too much?

    My conure bathes every day. Usually that's fine but lately im noticing her feathers are looking fringed and a bit on the down side. It's only her wing and back feathers. So, I'm wondering if it's because shes bathing too much or if it's some kind of vitamin deficiency? Any help would be greatly...

    Building trust

    Honey has been doing a lot better with me giving her treats but still working on building the trust to get her to be more active. Small things do scare her but its a work in progress. And she has been getting better with me giving her scratches but only when I move at a very slow pace.

    A new mother of two

    Good evening! It all started off with my budgie Quinn and got a GCC recently. I decided to come on here for help and to help. My parakeet was quite easy to tame and step up unlike conure, Honey. She's a shy bird who tends to scare easily and doesn't know how to step up. She's getting used to me...
