This review is based on my Dad's Green Cheek Conure, Cheeky. She has been with the family for about 5 or 6 years now, and without fail every year, lays between 20 and 30 eggs. My Dad has research 1000 different methods to get her to stop, with not much luck, and so she continues to lay. I would recommend that potential owners look into the issue before purchasing a female green cheek conure, as it is something that may become an issue. Aside from this, and the fact that she doesn't really like anyone except my Dad, she is a great girl. She doesn't talk or make much noise, and is pretty happy to hang out in her cage beside my Dad's desk all day. He keeps the door open for her but she doesn't venture outside of her cage much, and seems pretty happy that way. She eats store-bought pellets and mixed food and doesn't make too much of a mess except for the obvious one on the bottom of her cage. She is fairly small in size, perhaps slightly smaller than a cockatiel, and has an almost shy personality. She loves to get under her newspaper and hide, sticking her head out to surprise people walking by. She is a great little bird and can tell by her lovely personality that she will be with my Dad for a long time.
