Picky Parrot Webinar – Nanday diet

what’s a healthy diet for a nanday conure?
How often should birds be fed – how many times/day?


Hi Linda,

Your bird should always have some type of food in his cage, for his physical and mental health. They spend most of the they day in the wild foraging for food and their system is designed for feeding throughout the day and not just once or twice a day.

Your conure should have a nutritionally balance diet such as pellets or our foraging diets as 80% of his daily diet. You can offer 20% of his diet as fresh greens, fruits, veggies, nuts and healthy table foods. I’ll give you the link to our feeding guide and we have also presented several nutrition webinars, so I’ll give you the link to that playlist.
