Hello!!:greet13: I'm a newbie Conure mom. We just got our first GCC yesterday. He's 9wks old. We're still working on a name:D He knows how to step up,he's not afraid of hands, etc. He has been completely fine with me reaching in his cage to change his food/water, move perches around. He seems to be eating/drinking normally. He hasn't come out of his cage on his own yet, but he will step up to my finger and let me bring him out. We covered his cage last night and he slept from 8:00pm-7:30am! My only concern is, he hasn't made a sound. A couple of clicking sounds and that's about it. I know they're the quieter of the Conures but is this normal?

:hello1: And :welave:

I'm from stl too :) Have you been to Varietees bird shop in Valley Park? They are a great store for parrots!

There are a few of us that live in the vicinity of St. Louis :greet9:

Your GCC is probably quiet from being scared. He's still settling and deciding if you and your place are safe. Be pt and offer yummy treats like nutriberries, almond slices, and millet etc either by hand or dropping in food dish if too scared and your GCC will realize in no time that you're the food fairy :fairy2: therefore, to be trusted :xflove:

Hey Hi :greet14: No, I haven't been to Varietees...yet. But I will certainly check it out. Thanks for the tip, I thought that might be the case(he's scared). I'm heading out to the store right now to get some treats ;) Thanks again!

Hi and Welcome!!! I grew up in the St. Louis area, Ballwin, out in West County. I go back to visit every couple of months to see my dad and I always make a point of stopping into Varieties. It is a great store!

I wouldn't worry, too much, about your little Green Cheek being quiet. He is probably just getting used to his new home, observing the household routine and chillin'. Congrats on getting him. GCC's are awesome little birds. I miss my Lil' Pip so much. He was so much fun and so active and so smart. You will have a wonderful relationship with your bird. Good luck and please update us on how he is adjusting. And if you can, please post some pics. We really love pics, lol

Welcome!

Just FYI, Gateway Parrot Club meets out at Varietees each month. We just met last Sunday to make toys for the raffle and silent auction for our 29th annual hookbill fair that will be held on August 27th out in Bridgeton, Missouri.

Hope to meet you in person some time!

Welcome! Glad he has found his voice. Sounds like he's been well taken care of and socialized before he came to you.
