Small Conure Feeding Guide

Published on Thursday, 14th March 2019
Like all Parrots, your Small Conure’s diet should be as varied as possible. We suggest 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.
For a more natural feeding experience we encourage you to place food inside foraging toys for your small Conure to find and retrieve.

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.
