As a pint-sized bird, an adult green cheeked conure only reaches 10 inches, and weighs about 60g to 80g at full size.
Though not as colourful as Jenday or sun conures, it’s still a sight to behold. It is typically green, with a dark-colored crown, white eye rings, green cheeks, a grayish beak and bright maroon on its pointed tail. Its flight is cobalt blue and a tint of maroon on its chest.
Unlike other pet birds, both male and female have identical color markings.
Needless to say, it is a stout and compact bird and fits well on its owner’s fingers.
Green Cheeked Parakeet Personality
Without any doubt, a green cheek conure is a loving and playful bird. They bond pretty well with their owners and are not as loud or destructive as their cousins – dusty conure or peach front conure.
Green Cheeked Conure Vocal Ability
First off, a green cheek conure is an intelligent bird, but can only learn a few words. In fact, it’s one of the quietest parrots and yet again doesn’t mean it doesn’t make a great deal of noise.
Its deep and low voice makes it words, if it speaks any, unclear.
Regardless of its not-so-good speaking prowess, its sweet personality makes up for what it doesn’t have in speech to make it an ideal pet bird.
Providing Shelter For Your Conure
A green cheek conure would thrive at room temperature between 65 to 80°F.
For its housing, the standard conure cage measurement is 18x18x24 inches with a metal mesh with ½ inch spacing.
In the case the bird will be left alone for longer periods or has a companion, the cage has to be made larger for obvious reasons.
Also, multiple perches at least 9 inches long and ½ thick should be placed strategically alongside food cups in the cage to keep your bird in good shape.
Not to mention you have to provide foraging toys not only as play toys but also to keep it at bay from chewing on anything that crosses its path.
Last but not least, a metal grate should be placed over the droppings tray to prevent any contamination
Note: Don’t keep different species of birds together. And green cheek conures kept in pairs may bond with each other more than with their owners.
