Zoe, my sun conure, was the best birthday I have ever gotten. She was my sweet 16 present. 11 years later, so many boyfriends, roommates, friends, and jobs have come and gone, but she is still my little birdfriend. She says "Hello", especially when the phone rings. She'll also snuggle up to me and say "I love you". If you're thinking of getting a small parrot, a sunny can be a wonderful, noisy, loyal, entertaining addition to your life.

we just got our pet green cheek "congo" a few weeks ago! we do not yet know it's gender, so we just call it a he. "Congo" is so much fun! in the morning he flaps his wings excessively and trys to get off the ground, but he can't yet beacuse he is only about 4 weeks old. he also likes to squawk very loudly when he is hungry. my next door neighbor has birds too. she helps us out a lot since she's had birds a lot longer than us. i've wanted a bird for a long time, and now i have one! i love my green cheek "Congo"!

Jojo is the sweetist birdie ever. He is so smart and nosey. he says things like come here, you hear me, hi jojo, want a cookie, want a bite, want a drink, you baby hey you baby. he is very playful and loves to eat anything I eat. I don't know how I existed without him. He helps keep me sane. Thanks for listening to a GREEN CHEEK LOVER, SUE

We've had our blue crown, "Giggles" for over 4 years; we call him "baby bird" and just love him to death! He's bonded to my wife and gets very jealous of her and nips her if she does not spend enough time with her. Also Giggles laughs EXACTLY like my wife, which is a riot. Giggles likes to scream alot in the late afternoon which drives us nuts sometimes but we cannot imagine not having Giggles around. We recently added a second parrot to our "family", a Senegal about the same size as Giggles. We thought they would be buddies but they are more like rivals, sometimes Coco, our Senegal, chases Giggles around the cage or away from the food dishes. Giggles loves to eat macaroni, chicken wings, mashed potatoes, and God forbid he gets a hold of your chocolate chip cookie! We have a real time wrestling the chip out of his mouth!

i have a cross between a sun and nanday. her name is keiven and is about 14 years old. hehe a year older than me. i've had her in my family for about 5 years and she's been a sweetie yet she can sometimes get agressive and draw blood. just recently she shattered her wing since her bones were thin because of nesting, so she's in a quiet small cage. she has been on painkillers, calcium, and anitbiotics. so far its been about 2 weeks since the fall and she is doing great.

for those of you who are having problems with biting and gnawing, just keep at it. be gentle, speak to them in a nice voice, and give them treats. they enjoy that, and will eventually start being a little angel. took about 1-2 weeks for me when we got her. =]

While browsing we (my blue crown and I ) found your site! Chuckles is a healthy female fifteen years young. She is a dear sweet friend who has traveled the country with me in a pickup truck, lived in a camper, experienced tornados and is now very happy way out in the wilds of northern Utah. She laughs, says hello and makes various funny sounds. She eats her Bonanza seed mix plus apples, grapes, cooked salmon, yams and peas with cheddar cheese. Lucky bird...lucky owner. I hope to have the pleasure of her company for another fifteen years or more.

We have a Jenday Conure named Max, and he is the most beautiful, friendly bird I have ever met in my life. It's because of Max that I am such a bird-loving person. He is still a baby, almost one, and he is such an amazing little guy. He loves to take showers with us and sleep in our beds, and as soon as anyone gets home, they immediately take him out, sit him on the counter, and give him a snack. (He can't be cooped up in his cage all day, can he?) The only problem we've ever had is the squawking, which we easily got used to in the first week or so of him living here. Max is going to be a part of our family for a long time!

Hi my name is Lola, I am a Green Cheek. My best friend purchased me about one month ago. I am almost five months old. I am very curious and playful. My new best friend and I enjoy playing games such as peek-a-boo and go get it. She is constantly working with me on expanding my vocab, so far I can say hello sweetie, pretty pretty and pretty birdie. I continue to try hard b/c I love the treats she feeds me (Honey Bunches of Oat cereal, my favorite is the clusters and almonds). We also like to sit and watch through the window, I am very intrigued by the wild birds we feed each day. Other than the great care and companionship my new friend offers, I also love picking on her kids and other pets. I love the reaction I get to nibbling their little fingers and cold noses. The cats are so scared they won't even look at me. I love my new best friend and best of all she loves me too. I can tell we will be together for a long long time.
Thanks for learning about us,
Lola and Stacy

No parrot is perfect as there are both pros and cons to owning birds. I am a long time bird owner and bird lover and I know quite a lot about parrots. For example, green cheek conures need a MINIMUM of 24 in. cage. Their water bowls must be cleaned out daily. They can fling food everywhere and make a huge mess. They poop excessively. They may screech in the morning and evening. They can be nippy if crabby and will use their beaks against you if provoked. They demand hours of devoted love and attention. Also, parrots can not just become part of your decor. They must be included in daily routine and family activities. You must only get a parrot if you are able to understand that parrots are living, breathing, creatures with individual personalities.
Also, although birds can be hard to care for sometimes, once you've done your research and you're truly ready, getting a bird is usually the most amazing and wonderful experience ever.
