    Help finding a GCC & Budgie sized perch stand

    I read on here often, but finally broke down and decided to post my question. Has anyone had luck finding a rolling perch that is suitable for a green cheek and budgie? Our little table top perch is tired and we really want them off the table and onto something more portable so I can wheel them...

    New mommy to 'special' Cinnamon GCC

    Hi all, Long story short, my baby Apollo (approximately 5 months old) fell from his cage and broke his back (I work where he was going to be sold). I spent days and days with him for three months in the back of our store rehabilitating him to where he can use his beak to help him walk. Ended...

    After-vacation aggression

    I just got back from a two week vacation, during which I left my GCC Finn with a sitter. He’s super aggressive to me now that I’ve picked him up. Every time I try to touch him he bites me hard enough to draw blood. I know that it will go away in a little bit and I just have to wait for him to...

    Can they overeat mineral blocks?

    I've had my baby GCC Leo (about 3 months old) for around a week and half. He's adjusting really nicely to living in his new home, I worry about every little thing though! Is it ok that he loves chewing on his mineral block? Can too many minerals be bad for him? It's one I got from petco. (You &...

    GCC compatibility?

    My husband and I have a 11month old GCC named Atari (not sexed yet but we think it's a "she") who we absolutely adore. We're now thinking of getting another bird of a different species and I had a few questions for anyone experienced with this sort of thing. Does gender matter? I don't mean for...

    Conure friendly plants?

    I'm growing some veggies in containers and recently got a hold on some container variety of pea, it grows very short and bushy with small pods just about 2-3 peas each. My GCC loves peas! I used to give her whole pods last summer. I was wondering, though, if it was okay to give her access to the...

    New GCC. What counts as a bite vs a nip?

    Hi, I'm new to the forum but have lurked quite a while! The reason being that I had met a lovely 6 year old GCC at a bird specialty shop and after a few weeks ended up taking him home with me. I felt confident in his temperament because we spent a lot of time together in the store, which they...

    GCC: Long-Term Commitment

    So recently I've been interested in getting a green cheek conure (still have a lot of research to do) but something that worries me is the long-term commitment. I currently have the time, money and commitment needed to take care of one but whether or not I will in the future is another thing...

    I finally have a few days off from work so I went to my parents house for a couple days. I always bring my GCC, ben, with me. This is only his second car trip, he did really well on the first trip but this time it was raining. I think the wipers and how loud the rain was freaked him out at...

    foraging troubles

    My GCC needs stimulation. She gets bored quickly. Trouble is, she's incredibly shy and timid and is terrified of any and all new toys. Any ideas for DIY foraging toys, or non-scary looking smaller ones that I can purchase? :cinnamongcc1:

    GCC flight suit issues

    I have a green cheeked conure. I have had her for 9 months. We're very close, and she's bonded very fast. The problem is, she loves to be outside. We ordered a flight suit and a flight harness and spent 4 months trying to condition her to them. She's still super afraid. Any advice? She does have...
