Large Conure Feeding Guide

Published on Thursday, 14th March 2019
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.

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 variety of flavours, try FruitBlend, Natural, NutBlend, VeggieBlend and Smart Selects 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. 

 
TidymIx has 32, healthy human grade ingredients. It’s 99% edible to reduce waste and feeding costs.
 
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…
 
Berries
Banana
Papaya
Figs
Cranberry
Pineapple
Mango
Dandelion leaves
Spinach
Swiss chard
Carrot
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. The Vegetable Crunch contains a mix of beak-wateringly good vegetables.

Plus, they can be stored for longer. 

 
Nuts
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

Oven Fresh Birdie Munchies, three baked treats every beak is raving about.



Fruit Cups, jelly treats that are an extra special way to reward your bird.

Vitakraft Treat Sticks, in honey and aniseed and date and nut 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.
