A mutation of the original Green Cheek Conure, this species has the same outlining on its feathers, but the typical green of the back, wings, stomach, and face are a lovely blue/green or turquoise color. The back of their head is black, while the throat and upper chest are silver with black outlining. They have white, featherless skin around the eyes and deep, dark red (almost maroon) on the tail. Their feet and beaks are black. Average Lifespan: 15+ years
Sexing: This species is not sexually dimorphic, which means there is no visible difference between male and female. The only sure way to know the sex of these parrots is with a DNA test.
Origin: South America – specifically Brazil and Bolivia
Trainability: If purchased from a young age these birds are easily hand-tamed and can become very trusting and affectionate. They generally do not speak but some may imitate a word or two. Most will simply imitate whistles or sounds. Like most parrots, they enjoy attention and time with their caregivers and will happily spend all day with you. Simple tricks such as putting an object into a basket may be taught if one has enough patience, and the same goes for “potty training.”
Loudness: This species is an ideal apartment bird. Unlike most conures, the Green Cheek Conure is incredibly soft-spoken. Their repertoire of calls includes mostly low chirps and squeaks. If you’re looking for something that is highly interactive, beautiful, and soft-spoken, this species would be an excellent choice.

We have the strongest bird guarantee in the country, and more importantly, we stand behind our guarantee. The guarantee is simple: We guarantee that we are selling you a perfectly healthy bird. To verify that guarantee, within five days you need to go to an Avian Vet and get any and all testing you prefer to do on your bird, at your expense. We can guide you as to the tests we suggest. If the results are not perfect but the bird can be easily treated, then we pay for all medications and all treatment. If the results are unacceptable then we either replace your bird or refund 100% of the purchase price of your bird, at our option.
Bird Guarantee only lasts for the first five days
Since we have 100% control over the bird’s environment at our store, but have no control over the bird once it leaves, we can only guarantee the bird for the first five days. We guarantee that when the bird leaves the store that it has been properly socialized, and that it is 100% healthy. Your new bird has been given an excellent start here at Golden Cockatoo, and it is now your responsibility to properly care for your bird. We are always here to help you take the best care of your bird with the biggest variety and best quality bird products available in the world.
