Hey Everyone !

let's see the fellow bird/parrot on this forum !
I myself am a FANATIC about parrots, and have researched about them alot, so you may find me giving alot of advice regarding parrots.
I also own a forum for Green Cheek Conure's, if any of you want to join or see it, message me for the address, i dont want to advertise the link without permission.
It is still growing, but it will get there ! I am also working on abit of updates to the appearance. slowely..

Anyways, this is my little man Cinder, My Green Cheek Conure, he is 11 months old, and turning 1 year on december 7th !



Also just a photo i edited i thought i would share ;)



So let's see your parrots/Birds.

( i also own another GCC, whom was a rescue, and he was from a breeding pair, but his mate passed away, and i owned him for awhile, i dont have extra time at the moment for two parrots, all the work and so forth with all my animals, so he is going to a new home sunday, :( i will miss him ! )

Here's my Jasper. He's an Alexandrine Ringneck Parakeet (the largest parakeets there are). He's still young, so he has no ring around his neck yet.

This is the canary I used to have named Sprite. He died due to an uncurable infestation of airsac mites :(

Everyone's parrots are adorable !

Remember, anyone who plans or wants a parrot, PLEASE DO ALOT OF RESEARCH, They are along term commitment, and there is so many things that are toxic to parrots, they own you ! You have to alter alot of your lifestyle to keep them healthy and happy :)

Anyone with GCC's Please Check Out My Forum, Its in my Siggy under my banner !

I'm gonna have to check out that forum.

Also I second Twister...research research research!! There are SO not an "easy" animal, as is said often enough. You really do have to make quite a few changes to your lifestyle to keep them healthy...which includes changing all your cookware for non-teflon stuff, no scented candles, etc.. Plus a bazillion other things. Make sure you're ready to commit full-term and understand everything you're getting into. If you or any family members are adverse to loud/and or near-constant noise, perhaps bringing one into the house would not be a good choice. IDK but I hear complaints about a parrot's noiseyness fairly often from owners...they're birds after all! Even green cheeks who are often heralded as the quietest of the parrots have a rather piercing shriek. :wink:

Lol cinder loves to eat whenever i am eating, and tries to steal my food so i have to stay as far away as possible when i am eating something that he CAN ABSOLUTELY NOT HAVE lol.

Cinder is getting his flights back, i havent gotten his wings clipped enough to completely take away his ability to fly, i only had the 4 primarys clipped, and now he has 2 clipped primarys since he is moulting and his flights are coming back in.
