These little birds are a bit bigger than a Budgie and are just as easy to look after. Green Cheek Conures
originate from Brazil, Bolivia and northwest Argentina. Now that this bird is well established in Australian
aviculture, it is becoming available to the pet market at a reasonable price.
These little birds are affectionate, love human companionship and interact well with the family.
We have had one in our household for the last two years and cannot fault them. They are quiet and do not
stress when left during the day with a few toys, till the family gets home. Being a small bird, a medium
cage is all that is needed. Some people have found these birds have even bred in their living room when given
a companion of the opposite sex. Really, these birds are a little undiscovered treasure to the pet world and when
discovered the breeders won't be able to breed enough of these beautiful birds.
We have road tested many pet birds through the years and the Green Cheek Conures have earned their place at
the top of the list when compared to many other species.
