green cheek conure

  1. M

    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. For example when I want to go to my room to bring something(it won't even take 1 minute), he will scream and he won't stop...

    New bird

    I am excited to be getting my green cheek conure in less than a week. I am also going to find out the DNA. It has been over 35 years since my cockatiel (Niles) passed. Looking forward to learning and sharing with bird enthusiasts!

    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. Always biting and cursing (I think he learned from his previous owners) After spring ended, he became nervous...

    Your Green Cheek Cage Setups

    My green cheek isn’t here yet, but I’m wondering what everyone’s cage setups are! It would be nice if you put pictures and cage dimensions and stuff so that I can see what types of cages conures like.

    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...

    Best Starter Tricks?

    I want to do some more training with my conure. She knows how to step up and took immediately to target training, but I wanted to teach her some other useful beginner tricks. Right now, I'm mostly looking for stuff that will help with other things if that makes sense. Fun, more complicated...

    First Molt

    Well, I think my baby girl is having her first molt. She's 6 months old in three days, so I think the timing works out. We've got some down fluff being lost, and I've gotten several larger gifts as well (including a little red belly feather, I nearly died it was so cute). No flight or tail...

    16-Hour Move, Need Tips

    I will be moving within 3-4 weeks and my green cheek is coming with me (along with my very old hamster... our car will be a zoo). My hamster is an experienced traveler as far as long car rides go, but this will be my conure's first big ride with me. I have a travel cage, but it's pretty cheap...

    Healthy weight for GCC?

    I'm such a worrier. I weighed my 5 month old green cheek today, and she is 57.3 grams. I saw that 60-80 is the norm for them, and I'm assuming she's fine, but I just wanted to check that the number is probably low because she's still young. I'm going to weigh her more over the next few weeks...

    How could I get my bird to stay away from somebody

    I don't know if this is the right thread to post this in but recently my bird (Pineapple GCC) has taken a liking to my father. He has a habit of feeding the bird treats like salted pasta, bread, cheese, chips and even chocolates. He doesn't want to cooperate on not allowing the bird that kind of...
