Is Zupreem a Good Bird Food Brand for a Green Cheek Conure?

Kimberly asks

 

Is Zupreem a good brand for a GCC?

 

What brands of pellets do you recommend?

 

Dear Kimberly

 

Zupreem is a very popular bird food pellet.

 

It is a commonly found variety found almost everywhere.

 

It is puffed and contains sweeteners which cause the birds to take to it easier than many other pellets.

Why is It So Critical to Know Different Pet Bird Species?

Read in 5 minutes


Why is it so important to understand the differences between bird species?

 

I’m not ashamed to say we get more deliveries from Amazon (like most Americans) then we care to talk about.

 

This week a new Amazon driver “Patrick” handed off an envelope then said “I’ve never been here before – this place looks cool.”

I had an at length phone call with a long-time customer.

 

Her bird has been biting and she wanted a referral to a behaviorist.

We talked about Keto and his biting, then I discussed the lighting issue that might be biting triggers and she was interested.

Help For A Green Cheek Conures Projectile Vomiting

Mona S. writes

I recently had the experience of seeing my beloved Green Cheek Conure do what I would describe as projectile vomiting, which absolutely scared me to nearly to death.

 

I have owned birds for about 30 years or so and had never seen anything like this.

 

Actually, I was not even aware that birds could vomit at all, except for regurgitating to feed their young.

 

This looked like someone had turned on the faucet for a couple of seconds.

 

Fortunately, he has been perfectly fine ever since.

 

Do you have any idea as to what could cause something like this to happen?

 

Thanks for your time (and for your very information Sunday Brunch emails).

 

Best regards,

I have a 1.5 year old Green Cheek Conure.

 

We had bonded rather well until recently.

 

I have health issues and had gone several weeks without giving her much attention.

 

I didn’t think it would be a problem.

 

She didn’t act any differently.

Let’s start with forgetting that BIRDS DO NOT LIKE CHANGE!

Hi! I very much enjoy your emails and all the information you provide. By the way, my green conure (Wyndle) looks just like the bird you have in the picture with you, Mitch.

Wyndle is a “mutt”, not a pedigree like my Sun Conure was. She has a HUGE personality and is full of spunk; very strong, inquisitive, eats all day (not overweight, tho) etc.
