Can a conure get parasites from a food source ? my blue crown I’ve had for at least 25yrs is demonstrating odd behavior. any advice is greatly appreciated.


Hi Ward,

I’m not sure why you would ask about parasites unless you have seen moth larvae or bugs in the food. These are harmless and there aren’t any parasites that would come from food. If your bird is sick, please take him to an avian vet as soon as possible.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,
