Green Cheeked Conure Color Mutations (With Photos)


There are many color mutations that may occur in green-cheeked conures. Normal, Cinnamon, Yellow-Sided, Pineapple, and Turquoise are the five primary color mutations that may take place. Every hue has its own unique set of characteristics.

Green Cheeked Conures are comparable to 2-year-old toddlers in that they demand a great deal of care and like being pampered. In addition to being protective of their owner/human “mother/father,” they are envious of other animals. My conure became really violent with my other birds (budgerigars) and other people. Upon reaching sexual maturity, they become even more possessive and jealous. If they are not given sufficient care, they may become destructive and very aggressive, even against the owner.

Conures are very long-lived — perhaps 25 to 30 years — so acquiring one would need significant time investment. Their squawks are quite loud and piercing. They are also playful little clowns, which contributes to their allure.

I adore conures. They are amusing, charming, affectionate, loyal, and extremely nice friends, but they need a great deal of emotional energy and care.

Pineapple Green-Cheeked Conure
