Read in 7 minutes

Hi I’m looking for a dietary regimen for an Amazon Blue Front parrot.

 

He is used to a seed diet and I’m looking to provide him a healthier diet.

 

Do you have any recommendations?

 

Also I need a healthy diet for a sun conure. A dietary regimen for parakeets and also for finches of various varieties.

 

I’m looking to save money considering I have 27 different birds.

In order to complete your request please let us know what you are feeding the birds now and the sex of the birds (don’t worry about the finches sex)

 

Please confirm your parakeets are budgies and how many keets and finches .

 

Are any or all of the birds flighted or clipped

 

Have any of the birds laid eggs?

 

Are you aware most BFA’s have a vitamin A deficiency?

 

best

The Blue Front Amazon seems to not know how to fly I only got him in March.

 

He is 24 years old.

 

The male sun conure is one and a half years old has a splayed leg and flies very short distances only when he wants, which is rare.

 

My finches range from owl finches Lady Gouldians, golden breasted waxbills, Society finches and zebra finches.

 

The zebra finches have laid eggs but none of them have been good.

The BFA and male sun conure are not clipped. They eat a seed mix from the bulk bins at Pet Supplies Plus and treats from millet from Higgins and a bag of tree nuts from a vendor at a bird expo.

 

 

I have a breeding pair and 6 month old babies and a nest of 5 babies just getting feathers.

They eat parakeet premium bulk seed from Pet Supplies Plus and I mix in pretty bird Tutti Frutti pellets with the seed.

 

I will attach a photo of the breeding pair.

 

Hi Brett,

 

The first thing I always talk about with Blue Front Amazons is they are known to usually suffer from a vitamin A deficiency which can only be determined by a blood workup done at the veterinary clinic or hospital.

 

I try not to knock competitors as I don’t want anyone talking bad about us but conceptually I have a big problem with bulk bird food in bins.
