    One of my GCC’s was given to me by my little sister when she moved. She got him from Petsmart. He was fairly young when she got him.

    EMERGENCY!!! pest control

    I live in an apartment complex. I haven't lived here very long and when getting my conure, I was unaware that the apartment did routine pest control sprays every three months. People are trying to tell me it won't be that big of a deal because they spray just around the kitchen and bathrooms...

    Where should I purchase a GCC from?

    So, after months of research I’ve decided to get a green cheek conure. I know I’m capable of caring. For one as I usually have nothing to do during the day, so I can easily devote 4-6 hours to the bird daily, my biggest dilemma is where to purchase the bird. I have contacted a breeder who sells...

    Any tips for training a nippy Green Cheek Conure?

    Around a year ago, I adopted a 7-week-old Green Cheek Conure and raised him by hand. He is very friendly and absolutely loves to be around us. In fact, he almost never stays in his play pen area. He just constantly wants to be on my shoulder or around me. He is also super active and has a lot of...

    Is my Green Cheek Conure excessively dependant on me?

    Hello everyone. So it's been a month that I got my beautiful GCC. He has bonded with me really well. But he won't stay alone for a second. His cage is in the living room.

    Identifying Conure Type

    I found this conure online and wanted to know what type it was. It was only labeled as a "green cheek conure." I'm new to conures so I dont know what types have this sort of coloring. I really wanted to know because I think it is gorgeous! These are the only pictures they had. Does anyone know?

    Help with my Pineapple GCC. He has anxiety?

    So I'm in kind of a unique situation with my GCC. When I first rescued him 2 years ago he was pretty outgoing. Then when springtime hit like a week later, he became hormonal and cranky.

    Introducing GCC to Cockatiel

    My GCC, Poppy, finally met my boyfriend's tiel, Baby, today and she hated him! She was such a mean girl! Baby was being so sweet, had his heart wings out and was singing at her, but Poppy got all puffy-necked and tried to bite him. We went to a neutral area in my house (the kitchen) and I set...
