Green Cheek Conure Profile

 

Green-cheek conures are the most common of the Pyrrhuras in captivity. They weigh about 70 grams and are 9-10 inches.  These cuddly conures make great first time pets; as handfed babies they are easy to handle, love your attention and have the personality of a big bird in a little body. Conures have a reputation for being noisy, but the Pyrrhura green-cheeks are the quieter conures, making them wonderful pets for apartments and condos.  Personally, I find them to be quieter than cockatiels and lovebirds. Each bird is an individual, some will call to their owners all the time, and some hardly make any noise at all.

Green-cheek conures have a lot of personality, are very active, smart and inquisitive. Lots of time out of the cage is a must, even if they are only hanging out on a play stand in the same room with you. As with all birds, they should be closely supervised when they are exploring outside of their cages. Interacting with them is great—they love to have their heads scratched and cuddle, and their funny antics laying on their backs playing or hanging upside down in their cages will make you laugh. Conures are very social birds, affectionate and attention loving, but they can also entertain themselves for hours. They love to play with toys. Leather and wooden toys are a must, as they love to chew.

Green-cheeks are not great talkers, but can speak a few words or phrases, and are good at mimicking sounds. They are smart birds, and if you talk to them in context they often learn to speak in context, greeting you with “hello” and telling you “night-night” before you go to bed.

The Yellowsided Conures are the same size and have the same personality and traits. The only difference between the two is the beautiful yellow on the sides of the body and the bright red on the front of the body.
