I at first wanted a dog, but my mom would not let me get one so I decided to get a hamster. We went to the pet store to get a hamster, which we did, but it passed away from a disease called wet tail five days after we got it. We then brought the deceased hamster back to the store, and my mom said that I could pick out another pet. We wanted two small budgies, but when we saw the colorful, beautiful, yellow-sided Green Cheeked Conure, we couldn't resist. So we bought our bird and named her Princess, but now, I always call her Preenie. Now, I am very glad that my mom did not let me get a dog becuase I never would've gotten Preenie..

Hi! My name is Princess

I am a Green-Cheeked Conure from Burr Ridge, IL.

Preenie, Puffy, Puff-Ball, Preenie-Bird, Princess Angel, Bird

10 years old   F

Green-Cheeked Conure

Nutriberries, peanuts, grapes, and bread.

The perch where I sits when I want to be held, and a huge toy on the highest perch at the very top of my cage, and bendable-rope-t- hing that goes across my whole cage where I can reach all of my toys.

When people touch my tail! Please do not touch me in places that I cannot see very well. I like to know who and what is touching me.

She occasionally lets me climb on the couch, but only when I am good. She also knows exactly where I like to get scratched.

Making Kissing sounds, swaying and bobbing like she is dancing, saying "Ara"(my owner's name is Sara)making soup with her food and water.

As long as Sara is in sight, I may live in peace..

  Hello Princess!!
Luca is here! Finally!!
I am soooo sorry I have not flown by sooner. Our Grammie (Moms mom) got sick real suddenly and didn't make it. :( She passed away on February 23 and mom has been somewhat of a walking wreck since then. Last weekend she went to Florida to visit her best friend and met some of the other BC moms and it sure did help her mentally. When she got home she told us we were getting back into the 'world' again so here I am.
Yeah for us! We do really miss grammie and I know mom is still heartbroken over it all...but.... this too shall pass (we hope!)

Anyhow, I hope you are having a lovely spring so far and are being a good girl! I am trying to be a good girl but hey - I'm a green cheek! Hah!

Big hugs! Missed you tons!
Love,
Luca

  Hi Pretty Preenie!
Love the new nickname! Mine was Luca McDuck this week. Hmmm. I think because sometime I make a sound like a duck? So you had to get blood work? Oh boy - it is very scary! I don't like to visit the vet! But the moms just want to make sure we are healthy.
Have you been having any nesting behavior lately? I have been shredding everything in my cage and building little piles! Mom is freaking out thinking I'm going to lay an egg! Who knows? :)
Ok my pretty princess preenie, heres a V4U!

  Hi Princess!
Luca here, just flying by for another visit! So you like mirrors? Me too! But I always get in fights with myself *hee hee*. My mom comes in and asks me " Who are you having a go at? Yourself?" and then I look in the mirror and think to myself " Oh, yeah. That IS me!!". I'm so silly! Snacks...lets see. I love walnuts. Mom gives us walnuts every night before bed as our good-night snack. I also love strawberries too. I like picking the little tiny seeds out and putting them in my water dish! I also like to put my pellets in my water dish as well (it makes the water such pretty colors). I like corn corn corn corn! The more the better. Fresh corn right off the cob! Yummy! And sugar snap peas. It's so much fun getting the peas out. I have a fetish for peanut butter, and I also like french fries but mom says fries are not good for us at all, so I only get a tiny piece of one every blue moon. I love grapes too, but mostly have fun flinging them around at the other flock members (tee hee). I'm a pretty good eater and grew up on veggies and fruits, so I'll eat anything. How about you? Are you a good eater too? Us greenies seem to love just food in general. My Cinnamon cheek pal Lyzo will eat everything too! Only our bigger conure flock members seem to be picky.
Here's another vote for you!

  Hi Princess!
Luca here! Yes, us green cheeks are just fabulous, huh? I do have a few favorite toys. Lets see, I have a shredder toy I love to peel apart, and I have a little rubby ducky I loved to gnaw on. I especially love my hidey hut. I like to chew on the edges until they are all frayed! I like tiny pieces of wood to tear up. I really love all my toys, and I have a lot because mom spoils me. Like you, I am a total princess! :) Heres another vote because Yellow siders rule! :)xo

  Hey
Does Princess eat pellets? Frodo loves his natural Zupreem ones. He dunks them in his water before he eats them.

I suggest that you go to the Introduce Yourself fourm,it is near the top of the page,and post a thread introducing Princess and yourself. That way people get to know about Princess better. What is your username on there? Mine is Morghen.

  Hey
I bought mine from Petco.

Frodo sleeps in his Happy Hut. I have never seen him sleep but before he goes to bed he talks and makes funny noises. He does grind his beak a little too.

His favorite foods are probably grapes and peas. He likes to squish the pea and eat the inside. He eats almost anything that I offer him.

  Hey
Frodo has that same toy and he loves it.

He loves his pinatas. He has a natural one and then a duck-shaped one. He also loves when I make him toys. I usually take straws and it you "sharpen" them in the pencil sharpener they will come out all stringy. It is a lot of fun for him.

Does Princess have any favorite fruit?

You should join theperch.net . It has a lot of information on birds. I am Morghen on it.

  Hi Princess!
Luca here just coming back for a visit. I'm a yellow-sided too! I know I really liked you for a reason - we're twins and total princesses! Hooray for us! :)
I am so excited right now I just ate a grape. Ok, two grapes (don't tell my friend Lyzo though, he thinks I'm a little pudgy in the belly!) hee hee. I have to vote again for you because we are fabulous!

  Hello.
Hey, I got my budgies from Petco. I probably would not buy a parrot from there but I have been very tempted. I always go in and visit them. I really like my local Petco. It is clean and they are always cleaning their bird cages. I get a lot of my bird toys there. That is good that Princess had a safe trip. I would have been nervous as well. I want to move to France someday but I do not know if I could have Frodo stay in quarantine for 3 or 4 months( I think that is how long it is.) Does Princess have any favorite toys?

  Hey
I got Frodo from a breeder so he was already use to people. He only likes my mom and me. My mom is always bringing in treats and stuff so that is why he likes her.

I have a 2 year subscription to BirdTalk and I love it. I got my first subscription for Christmas and I got it renewed because it is so nice to read. There are some really nice ideas and info in there.

  Hey
Yes, Yaxley is the new one. Ollivander is in a huge flight cage and he gets lonely by himself. So I got Yaxley in the beginning of May. I haven't had him too long.

Luca here, just swooping in to visit another green cheek! I love your name - my daddy named me, but my mama calls me Baby Girl because I am her little princess. :) Aren't us green cheeks just adorable? Anyhow, here's a vote for you. Come visit anytime!! I'll make sure my mom has some grapes for us to snack on. :)

  Hey
I have had 5 birds. One Green-Cheeked Conure and the rest are budgies. Frodo is my favorite if I had to pick one. He is the smartest and funniest. He loves to snuggle and he really loves my attention. I love my budgies too but they are a whole different bird. Ollivander will step up if I have some millet spray but he is not really interested in me. He is entertaining though. I love to watch him play with his toys. Phineas(RIP) was so funny. He always wanted to snuggle and be on me. I think that he was taken away from his mom too young so he thought of me as his mom. I wished he did not die. Kashi(RIP) was my first bird. She was not very friendly but I think that was because she was a girl budgie. She was not very playful or anything but I loved her. She had it hard because I did not really know what I was doing when I first got her. I really miss her though. Yaxley is still nervous and stuff so I do not have much to say about him.

My newest dream bird is an Alexandrine Parakeet. They are so cool.

  Hello
Hey. I would love an African Grey someday. I do not have the room right now though and I think that Frodo would be very upset. I probably will not end up getting one, but I can hope.

Yes, I love Harry Potter. I also love Lord Of The Rings. I have a Gimli and a Gollum but they are my cats.

  Hi Again
The way I got the pic of Kiwi lying on my hand is, she likes to wrestle with me on her back, so I snapped the shot in between wrestling periods. After we play for a couple of minutes, she stops to give herself a rubdown while on her back. the picture with the hat on, I let her play with and chew the hat so she wouldn't be afraid of it, then it was a combination of placing the hat on her, and getting my husband to snop the photo very quickly. Hope this helps, V4U

  Hey
Thanks for stopping by. Yes, Frodo can talk. He is not as clear as African Greys but he does talk. He says Frodo, Step Up, and Thank you. It sounds grumbly but it is understandable. He is a normal green cheek but he carries the yellow sided and the turquoise mutations.
