Conure and cockatiel size comparison

So a lot of people who haven't seen a GCC or MBC often wanna know how big they are compared to cockatiels. Well I thought I would help out a bit, so a big thanks to my moody little brats









and just some cute pictures








Hey Joey, you're kinda funny looking


ARGH!


I hate you Joey

GREAT pics, Daisy! Now everyone who doesn't own a GCC will be able to see they aren't HUGE birds!

No problem guys, did you read the little story I made of the last three pics hehehe?

And Kate, my Pickles is a green cheek conure x maroon bellied conure hybrid. The conure at the rescue could be a green cheek or a maroon bellied, or both they all look very similar, check out Tippa's birds, he has a maroon bellied and you can see the difference. My hybrid is louder than Dexter, constantly chattering and screeching haha!

I didn't read the captions until you pointed them out, but, yes, Dexter's face says it all in that last picture.


Thanks Shivani for the awesome siggy!

Shivani, he has not plucked since he has been with me but the place he came from was dreadful which is why I assume he is the way he is. He is fine in his health though. The feathers wont grow back what so ever. He doesn't have any on his legs, under his wings or around his neck he's still beautiful to me! He's a grouchy little thing sometimes but he has a great vocab

Shanna, mine hate each other. I think green cheeks just like other conures really, I've seen the mix with other birds but never in the same way another conure

Sarah, thanks! He is unusual looking
