Mutations of the Green-Cheeked Conure are quite beautifully colored! These are not hybrids but the result of gene mutatiuions producing many new and beautiful colorations of the species. These beauties have the sweet nature and quiet qualities of the Green-Cheeked Conure in unusual colorations. These rival the mutation Ring-Necked Parrakeets and the Australian Parrakeet mutations in their beauty. The Yellow-Sided Conure has the dark shades of the normal Green-Cheeked Conure, with the addition of the beautiful yellow coloration on its sides and thighs.

Other new color varieties are now being produced. The "Pineapple" coloration, developed by Steve Garvin/
The Feather Tree, is particularly lovely!
This color is the result of breeding a Cinnamon Green-Cheeked with a Yellow-Sided Green-Cheeked.
New variations of colors are discovered in each new clutch of chicks!

Just-hatched babies are very tiny!

It has normally-colored black eyes. The chick with the light-colored beak and ruby-colored eyes is a Pineapple Conure.
