Is This What my Conure Should Be Eating?

ZuPreem AvianMaintenance Natural for Parrots and Conures - Bird - Sale Category - PetSmart

He us currently on the Kaytee Fiesra mix and LOVES it. He loves ut so much that he won't eat his veggies or fruits except for Apples of course. He has been fed this mix since he was weaned, he is one year old. Should I do the switch now or wait until he finishes the bag?

Re: Is This What my Conure Should Be Eating?

If you are trying to switch, you will need some of the old food. Mix new with old until gradually they are eating only the new food. Keep trying with the veggies and fruits - my conure loves colours of peppers and peas. Try clipping veggies to the cage to make them more interesting. It took us three months or more to get our GCC onto veggies and now he loves them! You can also try putting veggies in the bowl where the pellets are and then taking the pellets out for a few hours. Or sprinkling some pellets on the veggies and kind of mashing them together. There are lots of different things to try. Our conure eats Harrison's which was recommended by the vet - don't know too much about the zupreem or Kaytee. Good luck!

Zupreem is a great food - it's Auggie's primary diet.

Other than that I can only second everything Printer said.

Re: Is This What my Conure Should Be Eating?

Yeah gotta second zupreem because all my Quakers eat that and fruit and hard boiled eggs and fresh brocolli . Also just as a side note , the cincinatti zoo feeds zupreem to all their birds . So I would definately say zupreem .

Yay! Awesome, thanks so much I just hope he eats it. Great thing about PetSmart is if the food is not eaten you can take it back and get your money. At least that is their policy with cat and dog food.

Re: Is This What my Conure Should Be Eating?

Both my sun and dusky were on the Kaytee fiesta mix. I hated it because they'd only pick the sun flower seeds out of it. It had next to no pellets in it and it was all junk they only get as rare treats now. Both of them are on a pellet mixture and they get fresh fruits and veggies (when I get get them to actually eat it lol they're like picky children. Some days are better than others)

Now I feed them Zupreem Fruitblend in the medium size with the cockatiel on the bag. I get mine from a bird store in bulk. They both tear it up and I feel better feeding them this than the Fiesta blend with all the junk in it.

Re: Is This What my Conure Should Be Eating?

Oh o know, there is SO much in the mix. APole really likes the sunflower seeds too, I usually leave it until he eats everything because he will pick and choose. I should be picking up the pellets this weekend.

Re: Is This What my Conure Should Be Eating?

My Nic eats Zupreem as well. I have bags of Nut Flavor, Fruit Flavor and Veggie Flavor.

I mix them up. Sometimes feeding him only one type, sometimes mixing two or even three together...he loves it.

Since his cage is right in our living room, and his food bowl is about 3 feet from my head while I relax and watch TV at night, I like that Zupreem actually smells good.

I do feed it as part of a rounded diet of pellets, Veg, Fruit, Nuts and Seeds (pretty much in that order of quantity)

He also loves pasta, eggs and home-made bird bread occasionally as well.

Oh my gosh! Apple is not very fond of fruits and veggies but he LOVES pasta and egg whites! I have to fight him off of my plate when I eat those things, lol! I always seperate a couple of plain boiled pasta before I add the sauces or us to eat. He LOVES IT! He's a picky one, lol!
