I originally was going to get a Meyers parrot, but the babies didn't come into the store when they were supposed to. An employee there said they were going to pull a green cheek from its mom that day to hand feed & if I was interested I should do some research & come in to see him. I did my online research & went to the store that night & immediately fell in love w/ my little guy. I visited him several times each week until he came home at 9 weeks of age. I'm forever grateful that I have him!. Awards

Hi! My name is Basil

I am a Green-Cheeked Conure from St Charles, IL.

B, Sugar Bear, Badzilla, Devil Bird, Squeaky D

10 years old   F

Green-Cheeked Conure

Corn chips, nutri berries, blackberries, apples, grapefruit, pasta, sunflower seeds; and on rare occasion, small doses of Ready Whip---I have to keep the can hidden in the frige---if he sees it he starts begging!

On my mom, in my cage, on dad's shoulder when he's on the computer, or on my tree in the kitchen.

Having to wait 'too long' in the morning to be taken out of my cage while mom feeds the birds outside. I really dislike salt & pepper shakers, spice jars & bananas!

She's very devoted to me & makes sure I always have out of cage time each morning & evening. We eat breakfast & dinner together almost every day and I get to cruise the table & pick off her plate! She also lets me make a mess---I like to throw my veggie dish on the floor & she always comes to clean it up. I also like to shread & chew the newspaper while she's holding it. I love the fact that she lets me do all of these things, because dad does not!
Oh, and I can't leave out that she also helps me preen my pinfeathers on my head & she lets me snuggle on her shoulder.

I like to do my 'trick'-- Hang upside down on my mom's thumb & then bite the inside of her palm!.

I am the King & I won't let you forget it! (Mom gave me a boy's name & calls me a "good boy", but I'm really a girl).

  Hello Basil!!!
Welcome to the BC! My name is Luca and I'm a green check too! We sound very much alike so I know you are totally adorable! (hee hee). Don't you love when the Mom preens you? I love when mine does. Pin feathers are so annoying and itchy!
Anyhow, here's a vote from one greenie to another. Hope you fly by and visit sometime!

  Hi Basil
Welcome to BC. Green Cheeks are really neat since we have one in our flock. I also was named wrongly - they thought I was a girl and found out I was a boy. After 25 years of being called Hilda I don't think they will change mine. Stop by and visit my family. Here is a vote for you.

Come visit me, Hilda (even though I am a boy), Sunny & Pierre.
