sure you read up on the Green
Cheek personality and remember that the various mutations are just different clothes
on the same body.
"AWWWWWWWWWW!!!...isn't she cute???"
The Cinnamons look like a
pastel-Yellow Sided. If you look closely at their
intricate coloring, you can see the tiny bits of yellow and red on their
bellies...just like the Yellow Sided. Even the blue on their wings and the
green on their backs is diluted. They, also, are a member of the Pyrrhura
||The Cinnamons do not vary
as much in their color as the Yellow Sideds do, but the degree or red on
their bellies does show some differences.
to be cuddled and are very interactive. They
are also playful and happy!
we first take the babies from Momma to feed them at about 18-22
days (this depends on the parents and number of babies), it is rather hard to tell
if they are going to be Yellow Sideds, Cinnamons, Normals, etc...etc.
However, it can be done. When they are babies (and throughout their lives)
the Normals have dark feet and dark fuzz and the Cinnamons and Yellow Sideds
have pink feet and white fuzz.
probably wondering, "Then how do they tell the Cinnamons and Yellow Sideds
apart?" That is just as simple. Remember how the Cinnamons are lighter than
the Yellow Sideds? When they are babies, they Yellow Sideds fuzz is snow
white and the Cinnamons is peachy almost pinkish! It is really fun to feed
out a clutch of Yellow Sideds and Cinnamons!

One of our talented Green Cheek owners painted a picture of this gorgeous
Cinnamon. If you are interested in having your favorite fid painted, contact
Karen at firstname.lastname@example.org or at (928) 536-5121. She painted this from
me sending her a digital picture of our Cinnamon. (Also, visit our

page to see another amazing picture by her!)
This is one of
out Cinnamons in her harness. This one had a very
cute name...can you guess? Woodstock!
these toddlers are sleepy...aren't they sweet?!?!
They, as well as all Green Cheeks, make awesome family
pets. Another great thing about Green Cheeks is that they are not loud! They
will call in their high pitched little squeaks when they want food or
attention, but other than that, they just make happy, low, guttural noises!
