    Pyrrhura chimera

    Got a load of young greencheeks and noticed this one was different. It looks like a bizarre mix between the yellow sided and the pineapple high red mutations. Thoughts?

    Green Cheek Conure or a Quaker parrot?

    Hey, I am doing my research for my first birds. I ended up narrowing it down to tow species, the GCC and the Quaker parrot. I really love Quakers! I love how they look, their personality and the fact that they may talk adds a good bonus. Since I do share walls with neighbors, I am scared that...

    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...

    Does anyone else have a problem with parrots pilfering your food?

    I usually put aside a bit of human food that she can eat. For example, scrambled egg or egg white with no salt, a piece of crust, berries, etc, that goes in the cup on her stand or on a little plate. Lately however, she’s grown bolder about crossing from her stand over to my shoulder, running...

    Hi I am planning on getting a green cheek conure (or two). I need some info on keeping two conures together.

    I’ve recently found my bestfriend! A little male GCC, who I’ve named Atlas! he’s two months old and has such an adorable little personality. He doesn’t bite often, and is fairly quiet. The only issue I’m having is he has to be with me 24/7. If I am home and not with him, he paces the...

    Super skittish all of a sudden

    So I've had Tango (gcc) for over four months now, and he has become fairly accustomed to the sights and sounds of my household's daily activities. However, for some reason, today he has been a flighty scared mess all day long and I'm not sure why. He is used to seeing things moved around because...
