Subject:Re: Do quiet conures exist?
Message:I've only had my Green-Cheek conure and my Nanday conure a week today, but they are both very quiet...well, when Andy the Nanday says hello it is pretty loud, but it's not a constant, or even regular for my little Green-Cheek, he makes sounds, but no screams/squawks, etc...I've not yet met a "loud" or "noisy" Green-cheek...
