I’ve taught him a range of tricks that include using my hand and he’s been very receptive towards it...

    Hello, you can call me by my username and this is Echo my (Yellow-sided) Green Check Conure: I got him a few months ago, when he was 2-3 months old. He seems to have bonded with me well but I thought I should join a Forum just in case. I have done a lot of research on articles as well as many...

    GCC sleeping in corner at bottom

    (I apologize if this is hard to read) I have a green cheeked conure that I may have accidentally conditioned her to stay at the bottom of her cage at night. My desk where I do schoolwork and play video games and such is near the bottom of her cage. Her bedtime (7:30) which she refuses to follow...

    Pictures Bird keeps biting at scabs & scars

    Hi; I have a 4ish month old Green check conure that continues to bite at my acne scars & on sores; sometimes until they bleed. I've heard that yelping out in pain is discouraged so I basically just have her bite whatever until I just make her step up on my shoulder or on a different surface &...

    Conure Screaming at other birds

    My GCC screams like a banshee if he so much as hear a chirp from a sparrow outdoors. I've managed to get him to cease screaming for the most part when it comes to other reasons for screaming but I have no clue how to go about stopping him from screaming at outdoor birds! He is a 5 month old...

    At Wits End with Bipolar GCC

    So my conure, Gordi, is going to be 3 years old in June, and I would say his first hormonal season was last year. I knew that he would probably get nippy each spring but once last spring ended I thought the worst was over. How wrong I was. One night about a week ago, Gordi went to sleep as a his...

    How to clean cage with unhatched eggs?

    So my green cheeks, Chacha and Sancho, are new parents to 4 eggs. They are adorable when caring for them and taking care of each other as well. However, I am having difficulty finding a way to clean their cage WITHOUT touching or moving the eggs from their spot. I don't want the birds to notice...

    my gcc (not sure of sex) was doing something weird today. she was furiously bobbing her head up and down with her mouth open and after awhile she spit out what i believe to be pieces of an almond she had eaten earlier. at first i thought this was probably her adjusting her crop of trying to get...

    Help me prepare for puberty?

    Hi Avian Family! Duck is officially 7 months old as of today. She is lovable and snuggly, and an overall sweetheart. I know that puberty will hit at some point, and I’m prepared for a change of behavior (teenagers, am I right?). I’m hoping to get some insight to help me prepare for what I’m in...

    Miss my baby when she goes to bed, anyone else?

    Hey all! This post has no real question, or need of a suggestion or advice. I am just sitting here in bed, and my pineapple conure Duck goes to bed usually between 7:30-8pm. And I can’t help but think as soon as she goes to bed I miss her and can’t wait for her to wake up in the morning. Does...

    Green Cheek Biting Mate

    I have two Green Cheek Conure, Lewis and Lance. Lewis was my first conure and is about to turn two, which I heard can cause them to behave horribly. After a week of aggressively biting me, even flying to me just to attack, he is finally nice to me again. He broke the skin on my fingers more...

    head shaking conure

    Lately (as in this morning), my gcc has started rapidly shaking her head. When I tried to look it up, all I could get was information on head bobbing or African Greys. This is not head bobbing but a side to side really quick shaking of her head, like when a dog shakes out their fur, but it's...

    Should I get a GCC/bird? I'm lost.

    Hello! My name is Kayt. I have been doing research on parakeets (specifically Green Cheek Conures) for over a month and a half now. My mother is very hesitant and all I have received from others is negative feedback on birds. I really need to ask others that have birds what they think I should...

    Is your Green Cheek Conure a Bat Too??

    I came to this thought the other day when I walked in on my 11 year old Cinnamon Green Cheek Conure hanging upside down, eating. I laughed and talking to my mom about it saying "I swear she lives 85% of her life upside down". Eating, she is upside down. Taking a nap, she is upside down...
