    Why did he do this? Love bites?

    Hi guys, So the picture I’m going to post is of my hand after getting “preened” by my conure. I was giving him love and scratching his pin feathers like we do every night before bed. He sits under my hand for a bit and it’s just a good way to bond. Tonight he did the TINIEST bites on my hand...

    My GCC is making a weird noise...

    [Side note: please excuse my legs in the video, I had to record her making the noises while she was on my shoulder!! Just listen to her noises.] Hey, so I just got my green cheek conure, Kiwi, a little over a week ago. We have already bonded pretty well, and I took her to the vet today for a...

    Chatty when it’s dark?

    Hi guys! Just curious to know if anyone else has a conure (or bird in general) who talks when it’s dark. By dark I mean the lights are off or they’re under a blanket! My green cheek will cluck and chat briefly during the day, when playing and eating, but nothing gets him going like when he’s...

    GCC Regurgitating for a Budgie: Normal or not?

    Hello everyone! Something strange happened today and I was wondering if it’s normal that my green cheek conure Korben was regurgitating for his budgie neighbor. I know that birds regurgitating for one another is a normal thing and a sign of bondedness but is it normal (and a good thing too)...

    Help finding a GCC & Budgie sized perch stand

    I read on here often, but finally broke down and decided to post my question. Has anyone had luck finding a rolling perch that is suitable for a green cheek and budgie? Our little table top perch is tired and we really want them off the table and onto something more portable so I can wheel them...

    Depressed, Angry, Hormonal...

    I am... At a loss. I have had Remmy for almost 6 years, since he was not ever a year old. I was with him through his adolescents, through loss of trust, gaining it back.. I am beyond committed to his health and happiness. He has always been...Ornery, you could say. His hormones were always huge...

    Hi all, I'd like all your opinions. I'm interested in getting a Green-cheek Conure or Senegal Parrot. I have owned birds before, a Sun Conure and an African Grey who unfortunately I had to give up when I moved here (to Ireland) from South Africa. I gave them to a bird sanctuary with huge...
