Miss Mango Butt - Sun Conure
Hello everyone! I decided to join parrot forums because I've been lurking and reading posts but wanted to make a post of my own.
I grew up with birds and have always had a soft spot for feathered friends, so when I saw Miss Mango I knew she just had to be mine. She was born in August and I got her in December, she loves everyone but is still in her baby bird phase of "I don't know how strong my beak is", so she freaks out some people that don't know her.

Diet: Miss Mango is currently eating 3 Tsp (12.55 g) of Harrison's Lifetime Fine, Roughly 1/2 Tbsp (6.28 g) of lightly crushed Caitec oven fresh bite pellets, 1 or 2 Conure Nutriberries , and about 1/2 Tbsp (6.28 g) of GoldenFeast South American Blend. She also gets some amount of fresh foods daily, including vegetables, fruits, legumes, and whatever tiny nibbles she steals off my plate from time to time.

She is also molting right now simply because my house is warm enough that she thinks its spring (Her vet said that its earlier than usual but won't cause any health problems) and I'm wondering if I should supplement anything else to help her through her molt.

Nice to meet you all !

What a sweet looking baby!

Her diet sounds good to me, does she eat the full amount of food you’re giving her or is there some left over?

Welcome to you and Miss Mango! I'm really happy you joined us:)
The only thing I've ever done to help with a molt is to help my birds open the pin feathers when they're ready (if needed).
I'm really looking forward to hearing about your journey with your new baby ❤️

Phoenix - Sun conure
Welcome aboard

Phoenix was around the same age when he came home.
I really suggest a gram scale if you don't have one. Weigh after that first big poo in the morning. This is the easiest way to make sure that they are actually eating. Also birds hide any sickness till the end almost. By weighing every day and keeping a record you can spot anything loss or gain.
