I have 2 cherry headed conures, or mitred conures who are approx 25 years old. One is in great shape, the other is losing his feathers on his chest and head, partly due to the other one constantly picking at him. This is worse than usual because he was only loosing the feathers on his head, but not on his chest.

I bought a GCC in June, but was not sure if I wanted one. I wanted a conure but when I saw Missy, she choose me. Well I went out today and bought me a Pineapple GCC, he choose me. I love GCC's so I might just own a bunch of them for now on.

Have had my GCC for about 3 years now, cute little thing sometimes. Very socialable, but demanding. If he does not get what he wants he will become nippie. If he senses that you or something around you is a threat he will take a nasty bite out of you. Mostly when he wants to communicate he will bite on the ear to get attention and he also will purr when he is happy and content that he is receiving the attention he feels he deserves. It seems that like some other postings this bird will also tend not to like certain people for some reason and just want to vicously attack them, but with anyone else including his owner he is mostly sweet. Side note: he is deathly afraid of ballons. Maybe this is a GCC trait.

Well I just got my dusky and named him FRANCO. He tends to bite, he is 6-months old but had it bad as a little baby. I just taught him to get on my finger and he is starting to make wierd noises. He poops a lot and has very sharp nails. Right now he's lonely because he got separated from his girl, but hopefully I'm getting a sun conure to be his little buddy. I highly recommend getting a conure, they're really fun and cute.

I find it impossible to read all the wonderful things posted here about GCC. My GCC is 3 months old and was hand tamed/hand fed by a local breeder. When he first came home he was nippy, but showed some promise. Now he is by far the biggest disappointment I have ever had. I have owned cockatiels, parakeets, canaries, etc. and was so excited about getting a small parrot. I have never met a more nasty, hateful creature. I have bites everywhere and can not touch him without a suite of armour. I would never recommend a GCC to anyone (especially around children)unless one enjoys being brutalized daily. He wants to be on you from the time you open the cage and then immediately bites, rips and tears at flesh (arms, fingers, anything). No friend in this beast. Have tried every recommendation onine for curbing the biting and it only gets worse. Will never make such a horrid mistake again.

My wife and I have had our green cheek Ernie for about 5 months now. We had him sexed before we bought him so we know he's a boy. He's an extremely intellegent bird and has learned many words. He's quite content to sit on top of his cage looking out the window but as soon as someone walks by he always wants to be picked up. We have a shower perch for him and he loves taking showers with us. Ernie does have a nipping problem like most young conures do and the way we deal with it is to grab his beak and shake his head gently and stress to him "no biting". We have heard after a year they settle down a bit. He's quite a good little man and we're very happy with him.

I just recently got a bird named Pokey. He is 13 yrs old, well I assume he is he! "Blue Crown Conure mixed Red shouldered Mini Macaw". He is the most loveable little thing. He took to me right from the start, the previous owners really didn't think he would. He calls me mama and I call him baby. he likes the name baby, he never really responds to Pokey unless he is in trouble! He also likes to say NO! His new Words are "Wesley (my son's name), come here, sit, Taz (my little dogs name), love you, good bye, roll over". He is quit the character. Pokey has been a blessing to our family. Can't imagine life without our little bird, for me when my days are stressed Pokey makes me laugh! That is the best thing ever. Thank god for little birds like Pokey and the many other birds out there!

I had a half moon conure named Chip he was the cutest thing ever. He would squeeze through my door in the morning just to get next to my face and wake me up. He absolutely loved hot cheetohs and coffee. He was extremely protective of me and would fly and bite anyone's face who he didn't want near me. The only girl he liked was me. He would sound like a microwave and loved to pretend he was a zipper. We let him fly freely around the house and he was seriously part of the family. Everyone was devestated on 8-21-07 when he was killed by a hawk who pulled half his wing through his cage while he was outside and killed him. This bird and my budggie were the only birds I have ever had that got away outside and always flew back to me. I will definitely miss him.

    Did the hawk attack Chip while Chip was in his cage or house. I was going
    to take my conure out on the porch in a small cage but now fear predators.
    Will you explain better how Chip was hurt. I do not want this to happen if I
    can avoid it.

My blue crowned conure, Okka, is the best talker of all my parrots! He says over a dozen phrases and many more words that he seems to use often in appropriate moments like he understands. If I call "Okka!" he'll respond usually with a "What? Okka Out?!" And When I let him out of his cage I get an "Awwwwww. Okka Looooove You." He sings and dances and loves cuddling. I was always hooked on african grays for intelligence but these birds are just as clever and much cheaper. I strongly suggest researching them if you are looking for a smart bird.
