Kellie..........The most striking difference between a Green cheek conure and the Maroon bellied conure is the chest area. That is where the name comes from for the Maroon belly. It has a maroon coloured patch on the chest. This is more pronounced than the patch you find on the Green cheek. Apart from that there is little difference in size and character.
Some breeders here in Australia actually outcrossed the Maroon belly to the Green cheek a few years back in an attempt to increase the numbers of Maroon belly conures. Maroon bellies still comand a higher price than Green cheeks here in Australia but the numbers are increasing.
Thanks for that i was aware of some of the differences the tail for instance on the GC is all red but on the MB its green on top and red underneath........Ive talked about them so much now I just cant wait to get one.....we have a cage lined up and I made 2 new play toys with lotts to chew on (keeping GC in mind) Now it just waiting..... ....and yes well done dragon on your rescues...and I think olive is just perfect and obviously in a wonderful home maybe the NZ weather is too hot for her....LOL (yeah right)
