Having a Blue Front Because Amazon parrots have a propensity to grow obese, it is vital to restrict the amount of seeds they consume due to the high level of fat in seeds. It is common practice to feed domestic birds an excessive amount of seed, despite the fact that wild birds do consume seeds as part of their diet.
As a source of nutrition, parrots may choose from a wide variety of high-quality pelleted meals or commercial seed mixtures. Blue-fronted parrots should be given the giant hookbill type as their diet. These commercially prepared meals provide all of the nutritional needs for Amazon parrots; however, they do not include the phytonutrients that are available in fresh fruit, vegetables, and grains. Phytonutrients may be gained by eating fresh fruit, veggies, and grains. The immune system receives a boost from phytonutrients, which also help speed up the healing process. Some people also think that phytonutrients have the ability to stave against sickness. A diet that consists only of commercially prepared foods may also lead to boredom in Amazon parrots.
When provided with a diversified diet that includes a combination of commercially manufactured feeds and seed in addition to a broad selection of fruits and vegetables or any nutritious human meal, Amazon parrots experience psychological enrichment. They should include more fruit into their diet, including raisons, apples, bananas, peaches, pears, apricots, plums, and bananas in particular. It is important to remove the apple seeds since they contain toxins. In addition, they like chopped vegetables such as broccoli, which is an excellent source of calcium for them, as well as green peas, sweet corn, carrots and carrot greens, beet greens, lettuce, watercress, sweet potatoes, and sprouts. Corn and beans are two of the Amazon parrot’s favorite foods. They are in particular need of the vitamins and nutrients that can be found in vegetables, and they should be given a diet that is mostly composed of vegetables. After a period of 24 hours, you should dispose of any fresh meals that they did not consume.
Calcium is an essential nutrient for Blue-Fronted Amazon parrots. You may give your blue-fronted parrot a vitamin and calcium supplement in his drinking water if you are unsure as to whether or not he is receiving a enough amount of calcium from the food he consumes.
Provide your bird with clean water on many occasions throughout the day.
It is important to remember that Nanday Conures, like other types of birds, should not be given avocados, chocolate, coffee, or salt. Both chocolate and coffee include trace amounts of an alkaloid known as theobromine, which is harmful to birds. Avocados are poisonous to birds as well. Because birds are unable to eliminate salt from their bodies, they should avoid eating foods that contain a lot of salt.
