    My Conure's voice

    I have a 6 month old Conure. He has started screeching every time my roommate leaves the room. Until now there hasn't been any real noticeable problems with this. The last 2 days, however, his voice is all raspy/hoarse. He isn't showing any other problems. I'm just wondering if it's possible...

    Sun Conure or Green Cheek Conure or Quaker?

    I would love your help and opinions on which bird I should get! The three choices are Sun Conure, a GCC or a Quaker parrot. I am experienced and know everything about what a bird lover and owner should. Setting : I live in a rather large house and have had a ringneck and I did not think that...

    Hello everybirdy!

    My name is Sam and I adopted an adorable green cheek conure, Kiki, a few weeks back. I came here in search of food recommendations for her, and tips to get her to stop chewing on my face lol. I'm excited to be a part of the community!

    GCC Harness Training, Impossible to put wings through...

    So this is my first post here. I have exhausted any ideas I have or anything I could research online so I decided it would probably be best to ask others! I have been training my one year old, greencheek conure, Gordi, to wear an aviator harness for almost 3 months now. At this point, my green...

    Conure vs Lovebird?

    Hey guys! So I totally caught the bird bug and I’m thinking about getting a second bird. I’ve narrowed down my options to either a GCC or a peachie. I’m totally stuck between the two and was looking for some advice. For some background: I’m a college student, not living in dorms, and I do have...

    Best cage for college dorm?

    I'm taking my ESA (a green cheek) with me to college and I was planning on a new cage to get for my dorm. I'm not allowed to bring furniture in that's larger than 3'x3'x3' which his current cage is larger than that. I'm planning on leaving his cage at home for when I travel down for the...

    Help with conure bonding

    Hi guys! So I have an issue with conure bonding. So I got two conures two years ago when they were three months old. The male, Loki is very jumpy and aggressive... he is scared of anything and often bites and draws blood. I’ve taught him many tricks and I feel like I am somewhat experienced in...

    Rem Update and Issues

    Hi everybody! I posted about my green cheek Remmy who sustained a traumatic brain injury about a week ago, so heres a bit of an update and a few more questions! Remmy is doing somewhat better. He's on painkillers which are helping, and his personality seems to be coming back slowly but surely...

    Opening and closing vent after poos

    Hello everyone! Back again to ask a somewhat weird question: What does it mean when a parrot opens and closes vent for 15-20 seconds after pooing? I'm training my green cheek to go potty in the trashcan so I have been picking him up whenever I see the infamous tail waggle and backing up...

    Yay Pellets!

    I'm so happy right now!! I bought the Zupreem Natural pellets in hopes that Rio could switch off of the seed diet his breeder previously had him on, and to my surprise he likes them! I mashed the pellets with warm water and a small bit of cranberry juice (along with a small amount of seed). He...

    GIANT white feather?

    Hello everyone! My green cheek conure is about a year old now. Since I’ve had him he’s had a single white/yellowish stubby feather at the base of his tail, it seems to be growing but at an extraordinarily slow speed and seems to be fluffy and life it’s growing right out of this skin (never seen...

    Conure food?

    I recently got a GCC and I was wondering if Zupreem fruitblend pellets were alright to give her or is there a better alternative. She was raised on those specific pellets. I provide her with daily fruits and vegetables but I'm unsure about the pellets themselves. Please let me know if theres...

    Sun conure and a new conure

    Hello, I have a male sun conure. I’m planing on getting a second conure. I’m just not sure if it’s best to get a different species. I want a turquoise green cheek. Do you think this would be okay with my sun conure? I don’t want to breed them but if for some reason it happens I’ve read their...

    Is my bird sick?

    I've had my Green Cheek Conure, Pierre for awhile and have been attempting to tame him. His stubborn personality doesn't help at all. However, tonight he seems a bit off? He sneezed and got quiet. He then proceeded to make more sneezing noises frequently. Something I've never seen him do is bob...

    GCC biting?

    I've had my lovely GCC for about a year and a half now. When we first got him he was quiet and sat still on my shoulder. After perhaps half a year, he began biting a lot, and looking back at how busy our family was, I'm thinking part of it was lack of constant socialization. I've seen the...

    Inseparable Siblings

    Hey all! I've decided to purchase two GCC siblings who are really close to each other. They are handled daily by the breeder and her husband and I'm told they are very sweet, but after reading about bonded GCCs becoming intolerant of their owners, I'm getting worried. Any suggestions for how to...

    Acting like she’s gonna regurgitate?

    Hey so I noticed yesterday and today, finally when Kiwi will start playing with me, then snuggling, then back to playing, and she’ll get super excited and then stop and make the motion when she’s going to regurgitate ( Which I know this from watching videos and researching it ). Kiwi is only...

    My First Conure!

    Well... after about two months of research and fighting myself over whether I should I get a GCC or Lovebird, I was still conflicted. However, someone a few days ago offered a baby (4 months) handfed green cheek to me for 180$. I thought this was a very good deal compared to the 350 the local...
