Yellowside Greencheek Conure

Origin:  Brazil

Lifespan:  25-40 yrs

Height:  10”-13”

Talking:  Owners love the green cheek for its relative quietness compared to other conures. It is not as loud or as frequent in its calling, but it will make some noise. Green-cheeked conures have been known to talk, and some are able to learn quite a few words, but they are generally not prized for their talking abilities.

Personality: The green-cheeked  conure is a little clown, always full of antics. These birds love to hang upside-down and clamor along the cage bars, waiting for their owners to play with them. Green cheeks are mischief-makers, so keep an eye on your bird at all times. This is a good bird for children, as it is small enough for kids to handle and is generally good-natured. However, realize that any bird can bite, and little fingers are tender. Always use caution around birds and children, especially for the bird’s well being.

Food:  Parrot mix, Cockatiel mix, fruits/veggies

Care:  The novice and the experienced bird owner alike will enjoy the green-cheeked conure as a pet. This bird may not be for the very beginner, though someone who has experience properly caring for a parakeet or other small bird may be ready for this easy-going bird. Green cheeks are not known to be nippy, and are particularly affectionate. Because green-cheeked conures are highly affectionate and love their owners intensely, they need an owner that is able to give them a great deal of time out of the cage. With some attention on a daily basis, even paired green cheeks will maintain their pet quality. If you don’t have another green cheek, you can pair this bird with a maroon-bellied conure. The green-cheeked conure will generally live peacefully with conures of similar size, though will not readily tolerate smaller birds, and might be in danger from the aggression of a larger bird.
