Hi, I’m wondering about having multiple green cheek conures. Should I get a second green cheek conure, a friend for my first bird? I have a good girl conure right now, perfectly behaved, by the name of Lucy. Lucy seems like a lonely bird a lot. Like, I’ll go to work and Lucy is sitting on her perch in the same position as when I left. She’s got toys…but always sits in the same position on her perch.
Would having multiple green cheek conures help? Like, if I bought a second bird, would my green cheek be less lonely? The second bird would be a female bird though, so they couldn’t mate. I’m 100% sure she’s a female, since we had Lucy DNA sexed.
Q: Multiple Green Cheek Conures?
I’m also going to ask: would her behavior change? I hear that with multiple birds, they don’t want human company anymore. They just want the company of each other. Like I said, I’m not trying to mate her. I just want to get her another friend. Would her behavior become out of control, like would she get aggressive toward me? She’s not an aggressive bird at all right now, in fact, she’s really calm and laid back.
Almost forgot to mention: she’s 2, and we think she hit birdy puberty. Before she used to sing, dance, play in her cage (not sit in the same position like a perch potato.) But now, no more does she sing, dance or play. She acts quiet and still, almost depressed(the reason we think she needs a friend.)
I just hate thinking of my green cheek conure lonely without a friend. I don’t even know if multiple green cheek conures is the answer or would make her aggressive, help please!
