I would definitely suggest a green cheek conure, they aren’t very noisy at all, their sweet, and their bite doesn’t hurt much, they are quite playful and love to chew on things. And their more of a permanent bird as they live for up to 30 yearsHi! I'm new to the forums, and I was hoping someone could help.
I'll be getting a bird soon-yay! I can't wait to add a feathered friend to my life. I've been thinking a lot about which bird might be a good choice for me, and researched different types. The species I was thinking about are: green cheek conure, cockatiel, and lovebird. I'm looking for a relatively affectionate bird that wants to cuddle, sit on my shoulder, etc. I am in school, but there will be someone home with the bird most hours of the day. I can handle noise, and the house doesn't share walls with the neighbor's house, but if the bird is relatively quiet, that's a bonus.
Yes, I can have the bird out of the cage for 3+ hours every day
I was leaning towards a green cheek, but I've heard mixed opinions on them. Could anyone who has them tell me a bit about what they're like? Or anyone with those other species? I've heard that cockatiels aren't very cuddly, but I think they're awesome birds otherwise.
I'm heading to a bird store on Saturday (they breed their birds responsibly) to check out the birds there, and they have all three. Thank you!
