Green Cheek Conures for Sale

Green cheek conure or green-cheeked conure is a South American species of parrot, known for its playful behavior. The small bird is a complete entertainment package, providing its owner with endless fun and joy. Usually, these birds are good as pets, but as with every bird, there are some pros and cons attached to raising one, so think twice before adopting a green cheek conure, especially if you live in an apartment.

Housing

A hanging cage sizing 24″W x 24″Dx 30″H along with a metal bar spacing of ½” is its ideal home. Choose a place where natural light and air have good access. Make sure there are some perches with a length of 9” and a diameter of ½,” cage swings, and ladders inside the cage. They are the best toys and equipment your conure can have. Moreover, the perches will help in beak grinding and nail shaping.

Also, place a metal grate and a dropping tray underneath the cage to keep both the cage and its dweller clean and far from getting contaminated from the waste.

For nesting, prepare a cardboard nesting box-sizing 15” X 15” X5” and fill the surface with shredded papers.

Personality and behavior

This bird enjoys the association of its owner and kids in the house. With an urge of showing several tricks like lying on its back, hanging from the cage, head bobbing, kissing, acrobatics, dancing, and singing, this will keep you amused for a long time. Some green-cheeked conures love to be petted often. Usually, this bird enjoys living in a pair, but it does not appreciate housing with a bird of different species. Talking is not its forte, but since it receives training well, a few individuals can say some words. It also takes pleasure in foraging toys and simulation activities.

It often shows its discontent by puffing up its back, requiring immediate attention afterward.

Green cheek conures can be potty trained easily as it wiggles their butt, lowers the head, and keep on lifting the wings before pooping so, whenever you see such body language, choose a word to utter. Repeat this for several days and make the bird recognize that it is time to go to the potty whenever you say the word. This way it will not poop over your shirt whenever you place it on your shoulder.

Feeding

Its weaning age starts from 8 to 12 weeks. Give your conure its favorite fresh vegetables, fruits (strawberries, bananas, lemon, and orange), and fortified seeds every day. Occasional treats, not high in fat and sugar, will also do. Pellet-based diets are also recommended for these birds. Avocado and chocolate are to be avoided as they create toxicity in the birds.

Care

Interacting with your bird elevates its mood and keeps boredom at bay. You have to be careful about its movements, especially when it is outside the cage, as the intelligent bird can unlock stuff, causing minor wounds on its body in the process. Attending to its every need is the only mantra to flourish the bond between you and the bird.

You must keep the cage, water, and food bowl clean. Always provide chlorine-free and filtered water to bathe your pet. Clipping flight feathers from professionals is also necessary.

 

Popular as pets due to their small size, beauty, and intelligence, green-cheeked conures have stolen many bird lovers’ hearts. Their curiosity, grit, and playful nature are excellent characteristics of a pet bird. Mischievous, engaging, green-cheeked conures pack a lot of personality into a small package.

Green Cheeks are often described as the perfect pet bird, and with good reason. These South American Parrots are playful, cuddly, friendly, and reasonably quiet, making them suitable for families who live in apartments.

Green cheeks can do well as a first bird. Still, the owner would have to be willing to put time and effort into the training process. Green-cheeked conures are a fun, personable, active, and quiet little bird that can be the perfect companion for someone who wants the “large parrot experience” without quite so much work.
