Best pellets for green cheek pineapple conures

Hi all,

I'm a new owner of a 10 month-old pineapple conure. The previous owner fed him a mix of cockatiel seeds and millet. I've been reading that pellets are more nutritionally balanced, and would like to start mixing some into his diet. Does anyone have any recommendations as to which type/brand of pellets to purchase? Any help greatly appreciated = )

Zupreem. You should also add in some fresh fruits and vegetables.

Re: Best pellets for green cheek pineapple conures

Wait, Zupreem is the best? I was expecting people to say Harrison's or Roudybush. I have Zupreem! I bought them when I didn't know what type to buy, luckily I made a good choice, but why is it better than Harrison's and Roudybush?

Re: Best pellets for green cheek pineapple conures

Thanks, guys! I've been researching this topic for the past few weeks, and most people tend to like Zupreem. I will be buying some soon.

As far as adding fruits and veggies - - he's quite picky , so I'm still experimenting. He does, however, LOVE broccoli = )

Re: Best pellets for green cheek pineapple conures

The best pellets are the ones your bird will eat!! I am a fan of Harrisons.

Re: Best pellets for green cheek pineapple conures

Harrison's by far is the BEST that U can get for any bird. it is very hard 2 get birds to eat it though. That is why most people buy the Zupreem which is 2nd best IMO... Most birds will eat the Zupreem.
