Here are some of our babies and a little about them. We hope you enjoy the pictures as much as we enjoy showing them to you!
Green-Cheek Conures (Pyrrhura Molinae)
The Green-Cheek Conure is one of the smaller conures. They are approximately 9 1/2 inches from head to tip of tail. They have a life span of about 25 years. The Green Cheek Conure is an excellent "first" bird. They are excellent pets for children as well as adults of all ages. The Green Cheek Conure makes a great apartment or condominium bird. They come in various colors such as the Normal Green Cheek Conure; mutations such as the Pineapple Green Cheek Conure, Yellow-sided Green Cheek Conure, and the Cinnamon Green Cheek Conure which have received their coloring through breeding.
Whether male or female green cheek conures, these birds are very affectionate and they tend to thrive on their owner's attention. They will always acknowledge your entrance into the room. They adapt to training very quickly such as lie on their back in your hand and tricks taught with clickers as demonstrated in the video located in Green Cheek Conure Nursery lower on this page. They also love to cuddle, as you can see from the above picture of Piney sleeping on her owner's neck.
They have a very high actively level. They need a lot of toys and attention to keep them satisfied and they love to take bathes! I always advise buyers to never purchase a cuddly or bed of any kind as you want your baby to bond to you and not become territorial.
Food: We feed our loveable Green Cheek Conure babies Zupreme Pellets - Small (Cockatiel size), and Egg Food (without any coloring or bugy) on a daily basis along with fresh organic vegetables and fruit. They also love a treat of millet, which I recommend very sparingly. Other treats consist of Sunburst Fruits & Veggies mix which has died fruits, nuts, and veggies and Homemand Birdie Bread. You can find the recipe for my Homemade Birdie Bread on the Helpful Hints Page. They also have cuddlebone in their playpen along with a water bottle.
Caging: Green Cheek Conures are extremely playful and energetic so you will need a cage that can give them plenty of space for activity. I have my own pets in a 18 by 28 cage. They are also very inquisitive little fellows, so be sure you get a cage with bars that are no farther apart than 1/2 inch so they don't harm themselves.
Noise: The Green Cheek Conure is a very good bird for an apartment or condominium. In our experience with raising these precious little ones, we have found that Pineapple Green Cheek Conures are the quiestest. Next in line would be the Normal Green Cheek Conures, then the Cinnamon Green Cheek Conure and last the Yellow-sided being the noisest. The noise level between the different birds also varies according to personality. Like children, they all have their own personalities, likes and dislikes.
Nurseries: Below you will see a section on each of the varieties of Conures showing availabily and pictures.
Adults/Breeders: Below you will see a section on any adult birds and/or breeders that are available for sale. Any birds in this section will be proven breeders and are being sold only because I am making room for a different type of bird.
