    New bird mama!

    Hi everyone, new here and anxious to learn a lot. We just got a turquoise green cheeked conure named Zara. I’m loving it so far but it’s definitely a learning curve. Looking forward to getting insight from experienced bird parents!

    Urgent Overnight stress plucking

    Hey everyone. Sprout (my 1 year cinnamon green-cheek conure) was fine last night but when I got him this morning, I found this. We've had a mouse issue lately (working on it), and we've been finding droppings in Sprout's food. We've tried moving his food bowl to different areas in his cage...

    2 year old green cheek severely acting up

    Hey guys, I'm looking for some advice regarding Chewy, my GCC. He just turned two in December, and like a month or so before it's like a switch flipped. He has been HORRIBLE. I've been doing everything I can to discourage bad behaviour and give him lots of distractions, but nothing seems to be...

    Pictures Mac becomes an iPhone!

    Mac decided he would become a handheld bird today, no longer wasting energy on perching and fully portable XD After a really good head scratch session with my hand over him, he decided to let go and curl up in my palm for even more head scratches. I swear this bird is such a nut, but he’s my...

    Thinking of getting a third bird. IRN, Quaker, or Conure?

    I don’t really know which forum to post this so I hope it’s ok to post here, but I have a 3yo Jenday conure and a ~12yo pineapple Green Cheek conure and we want a third baby to our flock. We have 3 different ideas, an Indian Ringneck, a Quaker, or a different conure. We obviously have the most...

    Marvin's 5th hatch day

    When asked what she wanted to do, she said, "view What's new on Avian Avenue", then after a few, to a toy she flew, with its bright new hue, she settled in, and began to chew. Marvin's got rhymes, who knew? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    crop adjustment? regurgitation? illness???

    my gcc (not sure of sex) was doing something weird today. she was furiously bobbing her head up and down with her mouth open and after awhile she spit out what i believe to be pieces of an almond she had eaten earlier. at first i thought this was probably her adjusting her crop of trying to get...

    Help me prepare for puberty?

    Hi Avian Family! Duck is officially 7 months old as of today. She is lovable and snuggly, and an overall sweetheart. I know that puberty will hit at some point, and I’m prepared for a change of behavior (teenagers, am I right?). I’m hoping to get some insight to help me prepare for what I’m in...

    Chewing Tailfeathers?

    Hi there! My four-month-old green cheek is beginning to molt some of her baby feathers due to her transition to adolescence and the change in the weather here in Ontario. She's been to the vet for a checkup and has been determined to be very healthy, but she tends to chew a bit at her...

    Green Cheek Conure "Mouthy"?

    Hi Everyone! My Pineapple Conure, Ducky, is just over 3 months old. She was hand raised and I've had her almost 2 weeks. I am so in love with her it's crazy. Her personality is coming out more and more each day. One I guess concerning habit she has is she seems somewhat "mouthy." By that I mean...

    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...

    How to stop biting?

    Whenever my green cheek is out, he likes “playing with me” by biting my hands, fingers, and scabs of hangnails. I try to relax and have him let go on his own, but the scabs of hangnails hurt so much that I have to gently grab his beak and pull it off. Help!

    Stunted 3 month old Green Cheek Conure

    this little baby is supposedly three months old, we got him from a really wack breeder on craigslist and we got him because when we saw him we were so concerned. (granted we shouldnt have bought him because it just rewards the breeder for bad practices)(we're planning on trying to report them...

    Black primary feathers?

    Hey everyone, My green cheek is almost two and has periodically gotten one or two feathers with black edges on him. However, as of this month I’ve noticed that although his other affected feathers have seemed to return to normal, the black pigmentation is now occurring on his primary feathers...
