Turquoise Green Cheek Conures are an excellent option for a family pet. The birds are small, affectionate, full of personality, and relatively quiet.
They demand attention, but owners who put in the time playing with them can be rewarded with tricks, cuddles, and even a few spoken words.
Male and female Turquoise Green Cheek Conures look the same and tend to grow to about 10 inches. This means their cage doesn’t have to be too big and can easily fit in a flat. The birds will need a lot of toys and space to move around outside the cage.
The colorful parrots get on well with other Conures and some larger birds, but you may want to avoid mixing them with smaller birds, which they may try to dominate. Also, if you buy more than one Turquoise Green Cheek, be aware that they breed easily, so you may want to make sure they’re the same sex.
