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.
