    One VS Multiple Birds?

    Hello everyone! I have one bird now, a male GCC that is 2 1/2 years old. I've been contemplating getting an additional bird and now that I'm getting closer and closer to graduating from university I'm considering it harder. I plan on going to medical school, but that would result in him getting...

    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...

    Can a bird be mentally disabled?

    Hi all, So I've had my two green cheeks for a couple of years now. One of them seems to have a disability of some variety, and I was wondering if anyone else has heard of it. Firstly, she has a really terrible walk, causing her to fall over her own feet a lot. Like, she falls over at least once...

    Second Cage??

    Hello parronts! I currently have an extremely spacious cage for my GCC. Pic attached. He's fine being in it while I'm within view but the moment I step into another room he starts whining. He's my alarm clock which I really dont mind... loud screeches in the morning are very welcome in my...

    Molting? GCC

    Hello all! This is my first post. I've been lurking on the forums for a bit. Got my Yellow sided GCC in March of this year. He is now 6 months old. I believe he has started molting but I'm not quite sure. We have had a couple really nice, warm days here in New England. I took him for a walk...

    Is This GCC SF Misty???

    Hello! I recently got a new green cheek conure (up to four now!). I was told he is a turquoise SF Misty. I can definitely see the turquoise, but can't find enough info about the misty mutation online to verify it. In fact, I am doubting it. Does this GCC look like it is Single Factor Misty? I am...

    Age of baby bird?

    i recently got a green cheek conure from a breeder who said it was 7 weeks old (Now the bird should be 8 weeks old). However, when I looked on YouTube, all the videos of 7 and 8 week old conures did not look like mine. From the research I’ve done, my baby looks about 6 weeks old as of right now...

    Hello! My feathered pets of a few years decided to have some babies. The male is a normal Green-cheeked Conure and the female is a yellow-sided. They currently have 3 babies, the eldest being 3 weeks, the second 2.5 weeks, and the youngest 2 weeks. All three of the babies appear to be developing...

    Conure chick refusing food and vocalizing

    Hi, I have a GCC chick, 4.5 weeks old. He is starting to take less at each feeding (fed 4X/day). He has a strong feeding response initially (bobbing), mouths occasionally (like swallowing/tonguing like adult, which I've read is normal in slow hand-fed birds), then after about 5-7 cc's, usually...

    Building trust

    Honey has been doing a lot better with me giving her treats but still working on building the trust to get her to be more active. Small things do scare her but its a work in progress. And she has been getting better with me giving her scratches but only when I move at a very slow pace.

    A new mother of two

    Good evening! It all started off with my budgie Quinn and got a GCC recently. I decided to come on here for help and to help. My parakeet was quite easy to tame and step up unlike conure, Honey. She's a shy bird who tends to scare easily and doesn't know how to step up. She's getting used to me...

    Can my parrot catch the flu?

    Just went to the doctors and was tested for the flu. It came back positive for influenza A. I’ve read online that birds are not succeptible to colds or flus so long as the infection is not bacterial. I am confused though because I’ve also read that Influenza A is the avian flu and can infect...

    Need help with GCC diet please...

    There are a lot of questions in this, and I’m sorry if some seem dumb, but I am new to this so go easy on me please!! So I need help coming up with a diet plan for my 7 m/o green cheek conure, Kiwi. I’ve only had her for a little less than two months now. See, I’m horrible at making meal plans...

    My GCC will no longer "step up"?

    Hi there everyone! - I'm new to Avian Avenue and I have a new green cheek conure that I've had for just a few weeks (my first bird, too!). I didn't ask his exact age but it sounded like he is only several months old, less than a year at least. When I got him he would eagerly step up either onto...

    Well that's a first!

    today, surprisingly, i got bitten by a bird and he drew blood. now, again, luckily it wasn't my bird. I was at my local bird store, and someone had brought their caiques in to be groomed. I asked a little bit about them, picked up the 'nice' one, and went back to hanging out with Jeffrey...

    Green Cheek and Jenday possible offspring?

    We brought home our female 5 month old Jenday 3 days ago and we're doing the whole quarantine thing from our 7 year old male Green Cheek. We're hoping to make them cage-mates if they get along, but I'm worried about them breeding and producing offspring. I have heard of Sun and Green Cheek...
