Food for a Green Cheek?

Post by TicTok Y2 » Mon, 28 Jun 1999 04:00:00



I've noticed that a lot of the seeds and pellets in my parrot/conurre food
mix are way to big for my Green Cheek to handle, and so a lot of food is
wasted.  Since Green Cheeks are smaller conures, would it be okay to feed
them smaller food, such as a***atiel mix?

They make a conure food that's the perfect size for them.  The variety I use is
from Kaytee.  It looks like small fruits and is a full daily diet.  There's
other brands and varieties out there designed especially for conures.  My green
cheek likes to take the bigger pieces and soak them in his water dish.  After
they soften up he takes them out and moves to his highest perch and chews it up
making a mess all in his beard.
I think that the***ateil mix would be a little too small unless your conure
is a baby.

Yep, Kaytee has a good conure size mix. On pellets we give Spanky zupreem both
small and medium size. Then again, you can give Spanky rocks and he'll eat them! :)

Fred and Cinder eat Lafeber's***atiel nutriberries.  They are the perfect
size for Fred.  Cinder could probably get away with the Parrot size, but with
the mess she makes with the 'tiel size, it's OK.  Of course, they end up in the
water dish every so often making a really nice
mess. :-)

My Blue Crown Conure, Madison, seems to prefer Lafeber's***atiel pellets
over the parrot pellets - there's a *huge* size difference between the
two.
