green cheek conure odor
by mikah burrell
I have a 4 year old green cheek conure which I adopted a few months ago. Recently I have been noticing that either him or his cage (maybe toys) has a strange odor. He gets regular baths and I am very religious about cleaning his cage.
When I adopted him the lady gave me this fuzzy “hut” that he liked to sleep in. Eventually it started falling apart so I had to replace it. I tried to get something that was almost identical. But I am starting to think that maybe the fabric is different and that is what is causing the odor. I have tried to wash it and the smell just keeps returning.
I also have a peach front conure and I have never notice a smell to her…she is kept on the same diet, bath and cleaning schedule as my green cheek.
Is this normal? Should I get rid of the hut?
