Hello, I am brand new here, I just bought a Green Cheek from my local pet store on Friday. They were closing their doors after 36yrs of service. I am so sad about that. I went in to get dog food and more fish and was shocked..
Anyway, Jo-Jo was the only bird left and they were selling her for only $100. I could not pass her up. I used to have Cockatiels and a Blue Fronted Amazon many many years ago when I was in High School and College. So I am very familiar with birds. I have a pair of Zebra Finches now, but was wanting another larger bird for a long time.
It has been over 20 years since I had a larger bird, so I need a site like this for a re-fresher on things,
Michelle-- For the record, It's 1 Green Cheek Conure Jo-Jo, 2 Zebra Finches, 2 Long haired mini Dachshunds Heidi and Princess, 1 cat Smokey, 1 big fish tank, and 2 Hamsters.
Aww, fancy little Jo-Jo being left alone in the pet shop, good job you came along and snapped her up! I have a gcc too but she's terrified of me I think it's because I have to trim her beak quite often, it's wonky. Bless her!
