Update on Cinnamon Green Cheek Conure

Well no one has claimed the little one so it doesn't look like she will be re-united with her owners.

We are pretty sure it is a female as she has a split ring on her left leg. It is common practice over here when a bird is surgically sexed if they have no ring that a ring is placed on the left leg for the female and the right leg for the male. She has a split ring on her left leg. I have named her Nutmeg.

She is now out of quarantine and I introduced my male Cheekie into her cage on Monday. First we had an argument, then we had a Mexican Standoff, everytime one would move the other would move to the other side of the cage. Woke up Tuesday morning to them sitting together mutually preaning each other's heads. Positive she is a female now as later in the afternoon she had her tail so far up in the air she nearly did a somersault. Woke up again this morning to them with their heads together preaning each other again. I think they like each other.

Well, I'm glad it worked out well for both you and Nutmeg! Cheekie seemed to luck out on the deal too!

Thats great that they get on with each other!

Nutmeg sounds like a sweetheart.

I'd love to see some photos!

Nutmeg and Cheekie are going fine. Plenty of cuddling and kissing and mutual preening. I have just managed to get the camera working properly on batteries. Won't be taking pictures straight away but I promise to take some at our Festival on the 15th of May when I will take pictures of all the birds I have down there for the display.
