    Hey there other bird parents

    Hey, my name is Rachel. I'm 31, Married Live in Georgia and I have one Feathered baby Lola aka lolabird, Lolo. She is a 3 year old Green Cheek Conure GCC. She was never sexed but "decided" it's a girl although after no eggs and after feeling the pelvic bones she is probably a male.... Shhhh...

    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...

    GCC weird regurgitation?

    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...

    Aggression and Biting!

    Hello! I have a 5 month old GCC that I absolutely love dearly. His name is Ollivander (Ollie) and I have had him almost a month now. The issue I am having is he is very aggressive when it is time to go back in his cage. He spends the majority of his time outside his cage unless its bedtime or...

    Urgent Dog bit her!

    My puppy grabbed my GCC and squeezed her in his mouth. No signs of shock or lacerations, but I'm very much concerned about his saliva, and about internal injuries. She has a vet appt tonight. What should I do in the meantime? She seems to be acting normal but is wobbly.

    GCC biting very hard?

    I have a two year old GCC. Ever since we've got her, she's been biting so hard that she'll draw blood every time, and rip out pieces of skin. She is now calming down after a year of having her but she'll still bite VERY hard sometimes. Why?

    Green cheek conure funny smell during molting?

    Every time my gcc goes through a molt, she gets a funny musty smell around her pinfeathers. She has healthy droppings, eats a normal healthy diet of pellets, fruits & veggies, and has lots of energy. Has anyone else experienced this? I will probably just take her to the vet but since her...

    Tips on harness training?

    I have a GCC and I would love to harness train him so we can go for walks together. Getting him harness trained now seems like a good idea so that if for some reason I ever need to harness him he'll already be trained. I also want to do it while he's young, he's about 9 months now. He doesn't...

    GCC Sudden Biting

    Hi everyone. So my conure turned one this summer. Its an ever growing experience and I always try to do better. She's been enjoying cuddles, she likes to sit on my chest and get scritches. However for the past few days she'll boop my hands repeatedly and be progressively fluffing up and...

    Urgent Marzipan threw up clear liquid

    He has done this before once, when he (presumably) had a bacterial infection, but nothing came up on the tests. he seems okay, playing around like usual. Maybe he's stressed because someone was in the house earlier? maybe he licked adhesive or something off my computer mouse, or something? He...

    GCC clawed by dog

    I'm still a little shaken up, but basically what had happened a couple minuets ago was that I was sitting on the couch with my conure on my shoulder. He loves my mom, so when she walks down the stairs, he always goes to her. All of a sudden, the bird took off and my dog somehow managed to swipe...

    A bitey little booger- new dish and cage guarding behavior?

    So, Quijote is one of the great loves of my life, and he bites. When things are going excellently well between us he bites much less painfully, and a simple 'ah' will get him to stop. Recently, though, he has been biting really hard. Now, he seems to be trying to give me a clear message without...

    I Have A Dilemma

    As most of you know that I adopted Cooper - my 8yo GCC - in December of last year. He was horrid when I first got him, but over time he's gotten better behaved. He's never really liked to be touched and he seems to have some kind of separation anxiety from people he bonds with. He used to bite...

    Cage too big?

    I recently purchased this cage for my GCC: Bird Cage Large Play Top Bird Parrot Finch Cage Macaw Cockatoo Pet Supplies Blk - Walmart.com Is it too big? She seems fine in it and cannot fit out the bars. It is recommended for sun conures and cockatoos but her old cage was so small it was...
