My 6 month old Green-cheek, Maui was so playful. He loved to be cuddled and be fed apples. Although green-cheeks are quieter than most conure breeds, they do have a tendency to be nippy. You can remedy this by gently grabbing the sides of their beak and saying "NO BITE" in a firm voice. In order for this to work you must be consistent and never let them get away with it. I only had my presious Maui for about 8 weeks he was the best little friend I could ask for. Sadly, Maui was killed by our cat when he escaped from his cage to visit me in the next room. Even though I only spent a fraction of what his life could have been I enjoyed his comapany and his memory will live on forever.

He might be a she yet, but Bobby, my young Green Cheeked conure, is curious and intelligent. I do not want his curiosity to kill him. I lost my last 2 birds, cockatiels, to escape. Once he gets outside, it will only mean freedom. Watch doors, incoming visitors, open windows. It takes a lot of luck to get one back.
To the person with the water-shy bird: your bird is now afraid of the spray. Let him become curious on his own. If the cage is left in a quiet warm place, he will eventually take his own bath. You may have to do this for several days, especially in the case of your bird. That means do not disturb. They are smart enough to know when they need one.
These birds learn readily if they are not coerced. The best way is to incorporate their natural behaviors and follow their leads. Listen to your bird! Good luck!

my husband and I bought a mitred a few months ago. He is now about a year old. He talks alot. He says what ya doin, cmere, learning to say peekaboo, and goodboy. He has attempted those a few times. He is a very busy bird and loves attention. He is very very noisy. He is very sweet and loves to wrestle.

I have 11 month green cheek, Sweety. She is the sweetest bird I have met! Just she never listens to me, for she loves to nibble on my face. Sometimes, she poofs her head up and tries to bite anything in sight, they have extraordianry personalities. I love it when she falls asleep in my hands. Some advice for new owners are train them from the very moment they are able to learn. Have fun!

I have a GCC named Oz that I have had for six months now. He is about 10 months old. I have tried to teach him to talk but with no luck, but he does mimic sounds. He often lays down flat or on his side to be petted, and can do somersaults and head stands up against a pillow! He enjoys spending time with me the most, but also likes his little playmates, my pet parakeets, Yawn and Stretch. They play together, eat together, and bathe together. Occasionally, Oz is a bit nippy-when it comes to having to go back in his cage, at bed time, or when I head out to work. I have found Oz to be a great companion and a very loving pet.

Tiki (tea-key) is my beautiful one year old green cheeked conure, who is a lively yet calm little girl. She loves fruit such as grapes, oranges and apples, and her all time favorite snack is sunflower seeds. Tiki loves having baths and playing in the water, she immitates the sound of water as well. Tiki loves to be on my shoulders and at night time she snuggles in my neck under my hair. Her vocabulary is increasing each month, and she says and immitates the words and sounds that I say to her. She is a smart girl. Tiki is good in my jeep when we travel, and she has her own traveling cage. Her favorite toys are her hanging bell and her ball with a bell in it. Someone mentioned about the life span. I have read anywhere from 10-35 years. I hope Tiki is with me forever! She is my little side kick.

I have a peach fronted conure named Fred. He was a pet shop bird that was extremely unhappy. A product of a divorce and a remarriage. the previous owner was given an ultimatum of "The bird goes or I go" Personally that woman would have been listed in the "free to good home" section of the paper the next day. Anyway Fred bit everyone that approached him. I was in the petshop and saw him, asked him if he wanted to come out and he promptly lifted his foot to come on my hand. I walked around the petshop with him, I was able to pet him, and snuggle him. The people that worked there was amazed. I visited him for several months at the store, thinking surely someone would buy this bird, but after two months the bird was still there, and starting to refuse to eat. Subsequently he became my mothers day present 3 yrs. ago from my husband. He is a wonderful little bird, very social, and now loves to be handled by everyone, of course I am still his favorite.:0) He can be loud, but when he goes banannas I just cover his cage for a little while and he quiets immediately. If it is a small parrot that interests you, the peach front conure is a mighty little parrot in small body. They are clowns, and love attention. They love a "happy hut" in their cage for night time sleeping. He always sleeps in his hut. Toys: They prefer the smaller toys, and are extremely messy with their drinking water. They dunk everything and water needs to be changed several times a day. I do not use a water bottle, but do have two seperate containers for water. One for dunking, one for drinking and he does use them that way. Be sure to change the dunking water often. They love to be misted several times a week with a spray bottle. The only drawback to these darling little birds is their voice when they scream. They are very loud, and extremely annoying. Many times I just take him out of the cage and hold him for a few minutes and that stops it. They are extremely interactive with people, and love the "people time" that they get out of the cage and with you. They live about 20 yrs. so be prepared for a long relationship. I would recommend them to anyone that is looking for a small parrot.
