Green Cheek Conure Melbourne

Are you looking to get a Green Cheek Conure? Do you live in Melbourne or Geelong? Then you have come to the right place. At Victorian Bird Company, we often have lovely hand-reared Green Cheek Conures which you can visit in store and have a play with at Hoppers Crossing, Ferntree Gully and Norlane in Geelong.

Our Green Cheek Conures vary from young untamed birds right up to super tame hand reared Conures who love to play and cuddle.  We also offer breeding pairs if that is something you are interested in.

Look at our videos below for an example of a DNA pair and a Hand Raised Baby Green Cheek Conure.

Green Cheek Conure Pricing


The price for a Green Cheek Conure ranges from $199 – $599

The variance in price is effected by the following :

Fledgling – From $199

A fledgling that has been raised by its parents, is still a baby but has left the nest and is flying in an aviary. You can teach these birds to talk, however they are difficult to train unless highly experienced.

Handled Baby – From $299

A baby that has been reared by its parents and when it is a couple of weeks away from leaving the nest, we spend time handling it. This may be 15 minutes, 3-4 times per day up until it fledges. Then the baby is taken inside the house and with a bit more human attention will become friendly. With this type of Green Cheek Conure, constant handling is normally required to keep the bird perfectly tame.

Hand Reared Baby – This is the best way to invest in a baby companion pet for many kisses and cuddles. $499 – $599

 Hand Rearing A Green Cheek Conure Takes Weeks of Work

Baby Green Cheek Conures are delicate little creatures and to hand rear one takes a lot of care and patience. Therefore, hand reared birds sell for a higher price than one that is reared by its parents.

The hand rearing process begins at about 3 weeks where we hand feed the baby a specialized formula five times throughout the day, including early morning and late night. Their feathers are cleaned after each feed and their bedding is cleaned at least twice a day to ensure a healthy space for their growth and wellbeing. And this is only the beginning. As they grow, they need handling and human interaction throughout the day which accustoms them to being part of the family.

Above is a brief description of the time and effort it takes to hand rear and tame a baby Green Cheek Conure.  It is a very dedicated six-week period for our hand rearers who love what they do.


Another variable is the season and availability of babies. Eg off breeding season means that there is a scarcity and the price maybe much higher.

Green Cheek Conure Dietary Requirements


At VBC, our Green Cheek Conures are fed with small parrot seeds. We also provide a high-quality crumble for necessary protein and nutrients to help them stay healthy. All these requirements are sold in our store.

You should also offer your Conure a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, such as carrots and broccoli, as they add vitamins to your parrot’s diet.

Fresh, clean water is a must; Conures living indoors require a Vitamin D3 and Calcium Supplement. At VBC, we use ‘Liquid Gold.’

Green Cheek Conure Cage and Accessories


cage is vital for your Green Cheek Conure; there should be plenty of room for your bird to stretch its wings and move around. Minimum size of 40x45cm is recommended. More importantly, it is a playground or an area where your parrot can be free.

Conures need to be out of their cage to be kept super friendly, and at VBC, we provide a variety of playgrounds and stands perfect for your feathered friend.

Breeding Green Cheek Conures

Green Cheek Conures are easy to breed; they breed 2-3 times a year between August and October. They reach maturity at one year old, with each clutch consisting of 4-6 eggs. The eggs hatch approximately 24 days later, and the chicks leave the nest at 6-7 weeks.

cockatiel-sized nest box lined with parrot nesting material available from VBC is suitable to use for breeding.

If you are more interested in breeding Conures, we also have nice pairs specifically for breeding. They range from $300-$400 and come with DNA certificates to prove genuine pairs are ready to breed.


Green Cheek Conure Parrots

The Green Cheek Conure is native to South America and is most commonly found in Brazil. They are confident, humorous birds who are easygoing and warm-hearted. They love to play so you should provide a large variety of toys.

Conures are good-natured and excellent with children; they are easy to train and can learn several words. They grow about 25 cm and live up to 30 years.

The Green Cheek Conure comes in a variety of colours; the wild green type has a bright green back and wings and olive green surrounding a red patch on their chest. They have red and blue feathers in their tail, a whitish ring around their neck, and a blackhead with green patches on their cheeks. They have a white ring of skin around their eyes. Males and females are identical, but both make excellent pets.
