I don't care about price I just want to know what is best for my bird!! Thanks so much!

cabby11, welcome to the message board and forums.

When it comes to pellets, the most respected and praised brands seem to be Harrison's, TOP (Totally Organic Pellets), ZuPreem, Roudybush and Lafeber's. When selecting a pellet, natural, non-colored pellets are favored over colored pellets.

I provide Pepper with a mix of Harrison's, ZuPreem and Roudybush pellets that are available to him all the time on his play gym and in his cage. My goal and hope is that he'll eat these for about 30% of his daily diet. The other 70% includes parrot-formulated cooked diets, seeds, nuts, dried fruit and veggies, cooked grains and beans; and plenty of fresh or lightly steamed veggies.

Good luck with providing your conure the healthiest and best diet possible.

I use Harrison's. I used to feed a little Roudy Bush.

Great info Pepper's Pa! I would add I am really liking Goldenfeast Hookbill Legume. You can fast cook it in a cup or so of hot water and then cool it and the birds all like it. Hot or cold, its a winner.

If you shop at a bird specialty store you might want to ask if they have any sort of a house mix. At Chief's Bird Cabin here in Orlando they blend several brands of premium pellets, dried fruit, and nuts together in their store mix. This is what my Avian Vet was feeding to his Blue Throat Macaw and he raved about the product. I've been using this for about 5 years and my birds are happy, full feathered, and beautiful. The best food is the one that your birds will eat without issue.

My vet says to mix it up. That is buy different brands and mix them, because it gives your bird the most diverse mix of minerals and nutrients.

Amea...When my sone was young, he would try any pet food. he particularly liked the fruity scented ones by Kaytee and Zupreem but the taste he liked best was Gobbly-obblies. Now he's a lot smarter and if I offer food to him, he checks very carefully to make sure it isn't pet food.

My fids thrive on roudybush- I swear as we speak Cinnamon is eating his roudybush and for some reason is clucking like a chicken lol. I don't know why he does it but it's cute :)

Words that Cinnamon can say: Goodnight, I love you, Cinnamon, HAHAHAHAHA, NO, Come here, what is that?, I'm gonna get you!, Hello!
