Hi so I have a well I believe 1 year old conure, (we don’t know the exact age) and her diet is mostly just a mix of seeds and a bit of pellets. And I want to make sure I could give her a better diet. Using vegetables fruits etc. I really need help and any recommendations are fine!
 
when i used to feed conures i would give them a mix of fruits and veggies, made up of corn on the cob about an (inch thick piece), grapes, lettuces, blueberries, apple (on occasion), and strawberrys.
 
Bird STreet Bistro (available on Amazon) is what turned my seed junkies into mash eaters. A 500 gram package has lasted my 4 birds about a month and I'm STILL going through the bag. It's not cheap tho, up here in canada. $30! It's worth it tho!
 
We had a company potluck and I took some veggies home in a bag.....

Wait so, should I like give like a separate part of the fruits she might like and then a part of vegetables she likes daily?
 
Fruits are typically accepted by a lot of parrots, however, fruits are SUGAR and that equals more energy for them. If they live a pretty sedentary life, like most parrots do, that energy can manifest as being nippy or even as barbering or plucking.
Fruits can be used as a treat or training food, but an everyday 'food' - well better then seeds but....

BTW some veggies, like corn, are sugar factories too! Green leafy veggies of wide variety, and those high in Vit A are much better for them. Hot peppers are really good for them and they often love them.
