I have a green cheek conure whose name is Jem. I bought him at the end of last year and he has shared a cage with a 6 year old budgie since the day I got him. They get along quite well, they sleep so close together at night that they touch and sometimes they groom each other. But the weird thing is that the budgie regurgitates in Jem's mouth! I read that budgies do it to their mates, and they are both boys, what's going on? hahahah it's not a problem I'm just curious.

    The reason one will regurgitate is that it likes the other. It doesn't make a difference if male to male or female to female. Don't be surprised if it tries to do it to you. I had several of my birds try an do it to me... Its their way of saying they love you an also look at you as their mate.
  • Bree - 2015-03-05
    Yes this is common regardless male to male or female to female. This is how they show their affection to one another. Don't be surprised if it tries to do it to you. I use to have several of my birds try an do it to me... sorry if this duplicates it never showed me that it posted.

    I am new in terms of raising CONURE. Have good and bad experienced with CONURE. bad; brought a PINAPLE CONURE, SEMI TAME. raise for 9months with my super tame GREEN CHEECK CONURE. No mater what, the P C never become trust us even our beloved G C help her to trust us. But we do see that she sometimes trusted us and then sometimes not. We got the semi tame P C at the age of maybe 6 months old and maybe she had bad experienced with the previous owner. We traded her with a private breeder and got a baby PC. We feed the new baby by using our mouth, which we did with our super tame GC. now both are super tame. They free to go anywhere but they never fly outside and in fact afraid of flying out side with out us. I brought the older GC to play tennis with me and he never event fly off me, stayed on my shoulder all that time, about 50 minutes. What I am trying to say is, when these birds trusted you , they will treat you as they own, like my older GC. He now have new friend and some spices, but still come to me early in the morning to groomed me and during mid day and before sleep time. It is like a son, now have his own family but still closed to their parents. In conclusion, I never knew that birds can be this tame, like a real pet but with a unique personality. I loved they like my own kids.

I have had a female Cherry Head Conure for 5 months she lost her mate

    They will bond on their time timetable - not ours. True story. I had a female Hyacinth about 1 year old (Baby Blue) and I wanted her to have a mate. I purchased a male Hyacinth (Troy) and he was about 8 weeks. I hand fed him and Baby Blue would not look at him, would have nothing to do with him etc. Troy was a lover and even by the time he was a year old - Baby Blue would not look at him. If he went on her perch - she would actually somehow get on top of him and hit him in the chest with her beak. He would holler and run. After about two years, I sorta gave up and went and bought Troy a female because he seemed to want the closeness and companionship where Baby Blue just wanted us humans. I brought Midnight (female Hyacinth into the home at about 8 weeks again) and Baby Blue was all over Troy. Baby Blue was on his perch, in his cage, playing coy, would preen him and act silly. I don't even know how Baby Blue knew there was another female in the home as I had her in quarantine. Go figure. After a bunch of years, I have learned that I am not as smart as my birds. They have their behaviors, routines, rules etc and we jus don't necessarily know them.

I got a Cherry Head when he was a few months old. Now he's 18 months, very social and has a vocab of about 45 words. We never taught him to talk or played tapes, he just picked up what we say to him, things like, What are ya doing, you want a nut, you want a banana, you want to give me a kiss. He has a large cage but spends most of the day playing on his Jungle Gym on top of his cage in our Lanai. He's very friendly to family, but not strangers, he also will not talk when strangers are around. We love him to death, but people should not get a parrot because they are pretty and they talk. Parrots are a lot of work, more work than my 2 dogs, they are very messy, need sun and light, fresh fruit, healthy food, and they are noisy. Also, you need to spend a lot of time with them, or they will have problems.

I recently purchased a Green Cheeked Conure.  I named him Mr. McMurphy....I have only had him for a week...but can someone tell me when he will stop being so fearful.....he clings to the back of his cage and seems to flinch when myself or anyone walks by....I was told by someone to make sure he gets out and interacts w/me.....or he will remain fearful.....he's smart and when I get close enough he will do a step up on my finger.....yesterday we spent a good half hour watching the wild birds and squirrells eating he seemed to enjoy this ...the moment i went to sit on the sofa he tried to fly away (his wings are clipped) and he ended up under some furniture w/me chasing him....Can someone tell me how to make my new child realize he is loved and doesn't have to fear me....Are there any good books anyone can recomend on taming and training ...He is 5months old....I know I seem to be rushing things but animals have always taken to me ...I had parrakeets when I was younger they were all trained and one talked!!! impatiently wanting a relationship w/Mr. McMurhy!

    Yes, I think you may be rushing things a bit. Birds, especially mature birds, have excellent memories. He may have been in a more fearful environment before, and it can take lots of time, patience, and love.  If he is a baby, it won't take as long, but either way it takes time. Keep in mind that some birds never become as friendly as we want, unfortunately there's really no way to say.

    Well when I got my GCC I left him in an opened cage and everytime I walked passed it I would say his name and say hi etc. making sure not to show my teeth as they think your going to eat them like we are a preditare. So after a week my GCC finally flew onto me and started to trust me. It was hard not to be so forcefully but it worked just giving him attention and not making him be with me. Now we are best buddy's!!!!

so, about 2 years ago we got our little bird muffin. we did not get her at the store, she was left in the house we had just moved into and the old owners told us that she had fallen from a tree and they kept her and told us that she was still really young ( she's about 5 inches now). Since we got her she has parts of her body with no feathers. I think she plucks them and besides that she doesn't like people. we put her in her cage by the kitchen so she can hear everyone talk and so she can get us to us, but after 2 years she still doesn't like to handle her. We have never had a bird before, so we don't really know how to work with her or how to make her trust us. we sometimes take her out of the cage and when she's out she usually stands on the shoulders of who ever shes close to. when we sings she sings back to us and we give her pieces of bread as treats since she love it so much! anyway that's kind of our story with her. Today I went to her cage to bring her to the kitchen and to give her food, and usually she is either already standing on the sticks where she stands or she get out of her nest quickly and gets on the sticks. well, today she wouldn't come out of her cage, so I helped her get out and when she managed to get out she couldn't walk properly and she layed in the middle of the cage. I was very worry so, I opened the top of the cage to carry her and check her. surprisingly she did not try to bite me or freak out like she usually does when we try to touch her, so I knew something wasn't right. I tried to feed her and she didn't eat, not even bread, and she loves bread! and she doesn't want to drink water either. she is closing her eyes a lot and squinting and when she stands she puts her head up a little with her beak a bit open and sometimes she opens her beak really big like gasping for air. I put a heating pad by her cage and i put the blanket back on it as well to try to keep her warm and I also turn off the ac off. I put food close to her just in case she wants to eat. Unfortunatly, I don't have a job because im student and my major is very time consuming and I don't think I can afford to take her to the vet. does anyone know what could be wrong with her? she was just fine yesterday. what can I do to help her get better? I hate seeing her like this. i dont know if it's relevant but she laid an egg about 2 months ago overnight, so I didn't see how she act when this happened. could it be that she's going to lay another egg? I apologize for the length of this.

    I'm so sorry to hear about your little Muffin. She has been an awesome companion... and yes, she is ill. I doubt the egg-laying has anything to do with it. It could be something she ate, or it could be something airborne. Is anyone in the neighborhood spraying for insects, or is there anything in the house that could be airborne? You have done the right thing setting her cage that way, but it really is best to get her to an avian veterinarian for diagnosis and treatment right away. Hoping for the best for you two.

My wife and I have adopted a pineapple green cheek conure named George. For the last 3 months my wife has managed to train him to do amazing things. He has become very adept at fetching, spinning around and rolling over. To my amazement George can also play hoops and bowl. Green cheeks are definitely not good talkers but are amazing performers.

    I have a pineapple green cheek he is the joy of my life, he can talk very well, picks up new words all the time. He loves little balls and bells. When we go out of town we have someone come and visit him a while. He enjoys sitting on his play thing on top of his cage.
