Hey guys, Iím a new owner here and I need some help with my birdís diet. Please try not to be too harsh as Iím doing my best.
My parents just got me a green cheek conure as a gift for my birthday (Iím about to turn 19), and I figured since I had always loved birds and had done a lot of research before that Iíd be okay. But now that I have my bird, Iím paranoid about EVERYTHING. Most of all, his diet.
So far heís mainly been eating pellets (I went with Zupreem, as I had seen from quite a lot of people that it was a good brand), and I have also offered him some mixed vegetables (corn, green beans, peas, and carrots). He loves the pellets, but didnít eat too much of the vegetables. I also offered him some banana (my parents had been told it was one of his favorites), but he didnít take to that either. Today Iíll be making some chop to see if heíll like that.
Basically, Iím just looked for what and how much I should be feeding him. What do you guys feed your conures? How did you get them into it? How much do you give them?
I want to be the best bird owner possible. Iím sorry if I come off as someone who just bought a bird without being informed, I really wasnít expecting to get a bird like this and now Iím worried Iíll end up being bad. Again, please try to be nice in the thread.
