    green cheek conure displays of aggression?

    Hello all, I have a 1 1/2 year old male green cheek conure that I believe is showing signs of hormonal aggression towards one specific member of my household as well as outside visitors. When we first got him he was good with everyone for the most part, up until several months ago when what...

    Hi; I have a one-year-old GCC & I want to get another one when or shortly before I move out of my parent's house. The first reason is that I love birds & feel like I'd be comfortable taking care of two birds, the second is because my girlfriend and I will be moving out of my parent's house...

    My GCC is afraid of hands

    Hi everyone, I’ve had Joey, my green cheek Conure for 5 months now and I got him when he was 10 week old. We let him roam around the house (supervised) and he is in his cage only when we are not home or when it’s his bedtime. He has always been very friendly with everyone and definitely not...

    Green cheek color mutation

    Hello, my pets decided to have babies. I am very curious about their color mutation. Parents are what I think a yellowsided dilute and a pineapple (I will attach pic). Three of the babies I think they are like dad (yellosided dilutes) and one looks like a normal green cheek. Is this possible? No...

    My new bird friend!

    Hey all, I adopted this fella about 2 weeks ago now and I’ve SLOWLY been working on gaining his trust and he’s doing AMAZING so far! He’s beginning to trust me much quicker than I anticipated. Yesterday he even came right near me and played on his little gym. I’m so happy he’s becoming...

    Handyman sprayed Clorox into AC unit… how long until I can bring birds back into that room?

    Hi all! :) So I recently made my move out to LA… I miss central heating and air so much. So the wall AC unit in the living room of my 1 bedroom apartment had been smelling musty and stale, so I avoided using the unit. I finally got a guy to come help me out, and I know the only way to kill...

    DIET HELP: first time GCC owner.

    Hi y’all! I’m going to (potentially) purchase an adult male green cheek conure today. I’ve been in touch with the breeder and he seems like a good fit. Of course, only an in person meeting will tell for sure. However, I’d like to be prepared should I decide to add him to the family. He’d on a...

    Hey y’all, I’ve been doing tons of research lately and I’ve decided to get a green cheek conure. I’m in the process of contacting local breeders and getting information from them, but I thought I’d ask your thoughts on some basics. Favorite cage for a single conure? What are some things to look...

    Hello, i think my dog bit my bird. My bird went to the floor and the puppy went after him. Im not even sure if he bit him, since I reacted almost immediately. I dont want to risk it.

    Hi, I have a 6 month old GCC and I have noticed that he does this agressive head bobbing while he was eating - ??? . He did it fourth times in a row today while he was not eating as well. I'm not sure if he is adjusting his crop or if his regurgitating. Should I be worried??? Thank you.

    How smart?

    You know how cockatoos have the intelligence of a five year old human. What would you compare a green cheek to? With my girly, I'd say has the intelligence of a one or two year old with the emotional intelligence of a four year old. To be honest the only reason I'm asking this question is so I...

    Multiple Conure help

    I have a GCC at home and I've been thinking about getting another GCC as a companion. Today I went into my local pet shop and saw 2 GCCs which appeared to be bonded because they were in "separate" cages but sitting next to each other. I say "separate" because there's only a glass divider...
