Large Conure Feeding Guide

Find out more about Large Conure food.

Like all Parrots, your Large Conure’s diet should be as varied as possible. We suggest using a complete or pelleted food as a base diet, approximately 60% with the remainder of the diet comprising of vegetables, sprouting seeds, fruits, nuts, seeds plus other treats.

Placing food and treats inside foraging toys encourages your Large Conure to feed as nature intended, searching for, finding and retrieving their food.

Complete and Pelleted Food

The core part of your Large Conure’s diet, it provides them with all the nutrients they need.

Kaytee Exact Rainbow has been developed specifically for Conures. It contains Omega 3, for healthy heart, brain and eyes and is an enticing mix of different colours, shapes and sizes.

Lafeber NutriBerries come in 5 tasty flavours.

Original – El Paso – Tropical Fruit – Sunny Orchard – Garden Veggie.

Their small shape makes them easy for your Conure to hold in their feet or beak. Plus, they have 40 essential nutrients your bird needs.

ZuPreem Essential Nutrition foods are available in a Natural flavour for a fun eating experience.

Sprouting Seed / Soaking Seed

Take the time to prepare these seeds for a healthy and nutritious meal for your Large Conure. Simply soak them for a few days, rinsing occasionally, and within a few days you’ll have sprouted seeds full of the goodness nature has to offer.

Seed Mixes

are a good addition to your Large Conure’s diet.

Parrot Premium Professional is made with premium ingredients such as hemp and rowan berries. Avian nutrition experts Witte Mollen have developed it to be as nutritious as possible.

Fruits and Vegetables

Are highly important and in combination they should make up a good 30% of your Conure’s daily diet. The following are usually very well accepted…

Dandelion leaves
Swiss chard
Sweet potato

Fresh fruits and vegetables are the best option for Conures. However, for convenience you can feed dried fruits, many offer similar levels of nutrition.

Plus, they can be stored for longer.


Whether your Conure like to crack open the shells of nuts or prefers them unshelled, these options are thoroughly enjoyed.
Cedar nuts
Palm nuts
Macadamia nuts
Walnut halves
Cashew kernels

Other Treats

Other treats Conures adore include

Vitakraft Treat Sticks, in honey and aniseed flavour, as well as a multi vitamin and feather care varieties.

Please Note
We would always advise buying the smallest bag/pack possible to trial your Parrot with. It can take some time and persistence to introduce a new food. It may be worth having a second bowl of water next to your Conure’s food bowl, as many enjoy dunking their food before eating it. Always have fresh water available.
