Mom had a Green Cheek Conure before me "Honeysuckle" and she had
an unfortunate accident with her. She died the day I hatched. I am a Yellow Sided Green Cheek Conure. I came from a local breeder just a mile away.

Hi! My name is Crocus

I am a Green-Cheeked Conure from Mankato, MN.

Crokie

7 years old   F

Green-Cheeked Conure

Anything she is drinking! I like her wine but I have to take a sip when she's not looking she does not want me drinking alcohol.

On mom's shoulder

Not being out of my cage 24/7.

If I squawk enough she'll let me back out of my cage. She'll let me read with her until midnight in the bedroom. No wonder why she doesn't have a boyfriend, I am much better!

I go wee-wee when mom says wee-wee. I can say it too!.

Hello my friend. How's it going? Wow what a snow storm. My Mommy got stuck in the driveway yesterday morning taking my skin brother to school. the plow had gone by and plowed in the end of the driveway and Mommy did not realize how deep it was. Oh well, it took only four hours to dig it out. The snow was heavy and full of ice chunks. Plus it was snowing again.Today we have sunshine but it is 0*. Too cold for these birdies to want to go outside.We got to fly so beaked the vote thingy for you. birdy hugs.

Good morning Patrick here, Our house is still a mess. I keep telling the construction workers, "Hello Baby" and wolf whistling at them. Mommy laughed and told Dad that is reversed.
