A while ago we decided we wanted another bird (We've only had cockatiels and parakeets) and one morning we saw a kids' pet show on TV that had Caiques...after finding out that they were quiet and playful (we live in an apartment), we decided that's what we wanted! So that afternoon, we set out to find one. We stopped by a few pet stores that had nothing interesting. Then we walked into the bird room of one pet store and there he was. We didn't even know what kind of bird he was at first...but as we walked up to his cage...he ran accross the bottom to us and flipped over on his back and kicked his feet. "We want that one!" And that's how we got "Baby", our little Green Cheeked Conure. He is a RIOT! He loves to swing from the venietion blind cords...he loves to take showers with us screaming "BATH! BATH! BATH!" the whole time! He can say his name and also "Pretty Bird". He likes to sit on the curtains and look out the window and say "Pretty, Pretty" and is just too content to sit with us at the table and share our meal (and I do mean share OUR meal...he's not happy with a piece of our food of his own...he likes to eat what we're eating and right off our plate...too cute!). He loves to slide down anything! We're looking for a small sliding board for him now. He runs back and forth across the back of our couch, stopping only to tug at hes favorite blanket or roll down the couch...yes, he does this on purpose. He's the perfect apartment bird since he's small and quiet...even when he screams, it's not at all loud. He's also rather neat, doesn't throw seeds...and he does his best to be potty trained. He's parakeet size with a macaw's brain! He's perfect!

I recently lost my hand fed lutino budgie. She was the sweetest bird, and we were very upset for a while and recently I started looking around for new birds. I have fallen in love with green cheek conures. Although I won't be able to purchase one for a couple of months, i have been doing all the research on them that I can, and I am soooo excited for when I can finally get one. I look forward to obtaining one of these, curious and cuddly birds.

I just recently was given a Nanday conure who came from a home where the people had no time for him. I named him Gizmo. I am the third and forever owner. Gizmo can be so affectionate and very loveable. I love Gizmo despite his loud screeching plus I have 8 other birds in an apt bldg. At first I wasnt too sure about the noise but he has settled in quite quickly. Gizmo loves music, also loves to dance, bark, and eat.
I do have biting issues with Gizmo but in time he will gain my trust.
I have always wanted a parrot bigger than a cockatiel and now I have Gizmo and a Green cheek conure with 4 male tiels, 2 male budgies, and 1 male canary.
I love all my birds the same and would not trade it for anything else in the world.

We have a 2 year old sun conure who is very sweet but is very loud. We hand fed him since he was a baby at PetSmart. We had a very mean green cheek and we found out some one at PetSmart abused him, so we got a big discount on him. So from now on we buy from breeders.

I have a halfmoon named JC that I just got a little over two weeks ago. He is almost six mos. I have wanted a halfmoon for at least five years and I'm very happy with him. Although he's not into cuddling yet, he's content to perch on my finger. He's already learning to talk. He can say "Whatchadoing" clearly. He is such a cute bird!! I wish there were more of these birds in the petmarket because they make such great pets. I'm very happy with JC and hope he lives a long time.

Hi. i'm Jon. I own an 8 month old Sun conure named Sunny who is very sweet and lovable. He can already say step up, hello, and Sunny. One of The tricks Sunny does is lay on his back and open one eye to see if your looking. I picked sunny up at a pet store after he was returned after being stuck in someone's room with no socialization.

Hello! My fiance and I purchased Zazu, our four-month-old Jenday/Sun Conure mix, about two weeks ago. Already, he is well acclimated, playing constantly and desiring lots of attention. I must say, as my thirteen-year-old cockatiel, Eo, passed away about a month ago, I thought it would take some time to feel attached to Zazu. Due to his carefree, loving demeanor, however, I could not help but absolutely adore him. He is so well natured and a wonderful addition to our family. As long as you can accept the somewhat frequent, loud chirping, I highly recommend this breed.
