    Conure Harrison's & Mash Recipe Question

    As some of you already know, between the 1st & 15th of December I'm going to Denver to pick up my new GCC baby Cooper! (He's 7 1/2, he bites (not a problem for me), he can already say a few things when he's bonded to someone, and he's a traditional GCC - I believe.) I've been heavily researching...

    Mixed signals?

    Hi everyone! I've had my adorable yellowside green cheek conure for about 2 weeks. She's about 5 months. She warmed up to myself and my boyfriend at about the 4-5 day mark of having her. She hesitates or refuses to step up a lot, but I usually use treats to convince her to and she complies...

    Carrier Upgrade!

    I've always been unhappy with the cage I used to transport Lawrence in-- it's pathetically small and Lawrence doesn't like it at all-- so I decided to upgrade to something a bit more swish :) This is the 19'' Suncast pet carrier, and it's fantastic! Lawrence is happy to spend time in it having...

    Back Again (:

    My lil dude has been doing quite well! Step up training went great. He is going through his nippy stage currently but don't they all haha. Anyway, the only naughty thing is he will not stop shaking his water dish!! He doesnt do it to the food ones. He grabs onto the side of the water...

    Super skittish all of a sudden

    So I've had Tango (gcc) for over four months now, and he has become fairly accustomed to the sights and sounds of my household's daily activities. However, for some reason, today he has been a flighty scared mess all day long and I'm not sure why. He is used to seeing things moved around because...

    Hello From St Louis

    Hello!!:greet13: I'm a newbie Conure mom. We just got our first GCC yesterday. He's 9wks old. We're still working on a name:D He knows how to step up,he's not afraid of hands, etc. He has been completely fine with me reaching in his cage to change his food/water, move perches around. He seems to...

    Hello from the midwest.

    I've been on the AA forums and quite active on them, but I want to formally introduce myself and my feathered kid. His name is Rascal, he's a turquoise GCC. He's very playful, and smart (even though he doesn't like to listen.) I got him on Monday last week, and he's doing much better than at...

    Who is my bird bonding with?

    Okay this might be a long post so I will try to keep it short. I bought a GCC back in June to be my bird. I bought him from a petco store because he was in poor health and it broke my heart to see him in a small tank with nothing to do all day. So I purchased him and all his necessary supplies...

    Cage question.

    Hi all! I have a cockatiel as well as a pineapple gcc, and a dog. Anyways both birds have their own cages and the dog is kennelled in the night time. Both birds are really part of the family, they are aloud to do pretty much whatever they want to do while we are home within our rules and will...

    Are mealworms okay?

    I have a bottle of freeze dried meal worms that I bought for my turtle (who recently passed away), so I was reading the packaging and it says it's okay for birds, reptiles, and fish. I let my GCC have a little bite and he wanted more so he enjoyed it. Is it okay for me to give him a few every...

    Panic-filled morning

    So in the mornings, I change all the water and whatnot for the babies. This morning, I felt rather ill so was in bed for maybe an hour more then usual. So trying to be nice, my brother(bless his heart) tried to change water for me while I was asleep. Doing so, he forgot the little latch that...

    Parrot makes strange poping noise

    Hey all! My pineapple GCC Gigi makes this strange noise and none of my searches online explain it... the only thing that it might be is tongue clicking from what I've read? It's a quiet little 'poping' noise she makes with her beak. Sometimes while she's sitting on my hand and happily fluffed...

    GCC personality trait?

    hey, I'm new here and I've got a question! So I've got a pineapple GCC named Gigi - she's about 4 years old and I got her a year and few months ago from a breeder who got her back from someone who couldn't take care of her and another pineapple GCC anymore. I love her a lot and I'm pretty...

    Eclectus vs GCC?

    Hi there! =3 I'm not too experienced, and I'm looking into some parrots as a friend. I'm really considering the Eclectus or a Green Cheek Conure. ^-^ Overall, what I'm looking for is an animal that appreciates my presence. I just want a feathered companion. I don't ask for much. It doesn't...

    Need a home for my GCC

    I have a young (1.5 yrs) unsexed GCC named Ollie that needs a new loving home. His companion GCC recently passed away and he needs to be at a home with another bird(s) as a companion. He has spent his whole life with my other bird and that along with our very prey driven dog has led me to the...
