I have both 5 budgies and a pineapple green cheek conure.. I also have a tiel and a parrotlet! Green cheeks are amazing little parrots and mine is my favorite bird. (I know, not supossed to have favs, my bad!) I think mine is a hen but has not been DNAed. She is sweet, but sassy. Very very cuddly and clingy. She can be a tad nippy but is easily corrected, but do keep in mind they have a reputation of being nippy. Mine is my quietest bird. She loves to be held and cuddled, hugged and kissed. She will go willingly to just about anyone, but may test them by biting :0 , she does a few tricks, gives kisses, gives 4 (she dosnt have 5...lol) dances etc... I just love her to death!
