Cinnamon Green Cheek Conure comical and affectionate nature has made it a famous pet bird, but it can be shier than other conures. Although they are less inclined to gnawing or chewing than most conures, green-cheeked conures still enjoy chewing. Often described as being a big bird in a small bird’s body, this pet bird is the right choice for owners with limited space because of its small size. To attract their owner’s attention, green-cheeked conures often hang upside down, hide under papers, and dance around on their perches. While the owner is away, the green-checked conure can happily entertain itself if provided with plenty of toys in the cage. Still, once the owner is home, this conure needs plenty of time interacting with its human companion.
Behavior/Health Concerns: Green-cheeked Conures need interesting entertainment and interaction. Both breeders and pet owners favor the green-cheeked conure because it is typically a less expensive and quieter pet bird that is a successful breeder in captivity. Green-cheeked conures are also known for being gutsy. Some owners have witnessed them fearlessly taunting larger pet birds in the house, which means a green cheek’s owner must be attentive when the birds are out of their cages. The green-cheeked conure species has three color mutations that have made it a famous pet bird. Cinnamon and yellow-side colors are growing in popularity, and the blue mutation is the newest, imported from Europe.
