At Abby's suggestion, I'm starting a new thread as the old "diet" thread has been deleted.
I'll repeat my question:
I'm looking for more suggestions for diet as Baby, a black capped conure, began growing his beak w/n a few days of our getting him several months ago, and I just want to make sure he's not deficient in anything. He ate continuously for the first 5-7 days after he arrived here.......conure diet by volkman: http://www.naturechest.com/volcon28oz.html
I also give him greens such as dandelions (leaves and heads), grass (including seed heads when available), sprouts (which he hates unless they are totally dried out), grated carrots (which he loves), herb salad: http://www.allbirdproducts.com/newpr..._of_herbs.html
(which he also loves). I've tried him on the dried veggie soup that was suggested, but he won't eat it.
I'm going to boil some eggs to give him (we are out at the moment).
I hope.........it's not liver disease
We really don't have any good bird vets in this area as people don't raise birds here b/c of the extremes in weather. They are always shipped in from other places.
Of course, he just may be adding naturally to his beak as he didn't even have his necklace completed around his neck when we got him about 2-1/2 mos ago and his beak does have to grow.
Suggestions? Or, thoughts?
