Blue Crown with a Green Cheek Conure

It is possible, but you would need to purchase a separate cage for the Green Cheek no matter what. You will have to be VERY careful with them for a long while, since the BC is bigger and then the GC's are prone to being bullies. That means the GC could irritate the BC and get hurt.

You will need to let them play outside their cages in a neutral place and see if they run at each other to attack. If they get along outside the cage, then you can one day let them play on the outside of the cage you wish for them to share.

Once you see them both enter the cage and not fight, then watch them for an hour or so and still keep them in separate cages for another week, letting them have more and more time to go in and out of the same cage. Provide two feeding dishes and two water bottles in the cage you want them to share, because they may never share food dishes and bottles.
