If you are careful to follow the steps in this list, you shouldn’t have any trouble maintaining the bird’s good health.

Diet Plan

This bird will eat pretty much everything you put in front of it. Their diet also consists of commercial bird food in addition to a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and sprouts. It’s possible that the bird won’t eat for the first several days after it comes to your house. This is quite normal. Because they are still getting used to their new environment, this is to be expected. When the bird’s current supply of food spoils or when it runs out of food entirely, the bird has to be fed. You provide clean water for your bird on a daily basis.

They need a wide selection of foods in order to prevent themselves from becoming uninterested in the food they eat. A commercial bird pellet meal may be a part of their diet, but they also eat things like seeds, nuts that have been crushed, fresh fruits and vegetables, rice, maize, beans, and even fried eggs. Every day, the water ought to be renewed. They need their own dish just for bathing, or else they should be sprinkled with water on a regular basis.

Only those who eat nothing but seeds should consider taking vitamin supplements. On the other hand, they have an increased risk of vitamin K deficiency as well as a bleeding issues. They are also prone to beak and feather disorders, as well as respiratory infections, colds, and issues related to the sinuses, as well as mites, worms, and parasites. On the other hand, these issues may be avoided and a healthy pet can be ensured by cleanliness, food that is well balanced, and regular visits to the veterinarian.

Special Needs

Jendays’ nutrition is critical, and they have a few special needs. They are prone to Conure Bleeding Syndrome, which is caused by a deficiency in Vitamin K. This ailment hinders the bird from clotting their blood, resulting in profuse bleeding.

This is easily avoided by giving your bird lush green veggies like broccoli, brussel sprouts, and spinach. Some breeders feed their birds parsley leaves, which are strong in Vitamin K. You may make some homemade foods with wheat bran for them to consume, or provide some chopped kiwifruit and bananas. Jenday Conures are now one of my favourite birds, since I now have a reason to get rid of the yucky vegetables that my wife attempts to give me. They wind up in our bird’s food bowl!

Shredded beef or noodles, bean sprouts, and hard boiled eggs are additional favourites. Some of the breeders we know believe in giving sprouts to their Conures, but I’ve never tried growing them myself…this is one of my future study topics.

As always, make sure they receive adequate calcium, particularly the females. You won’t have to worry about this if you give your bird a pellet diet supplemented with fruits and vegetables. Pelleted diets include all of the vitamins and minerals that most birds need, and you just need to supplement those things particular to your bird (like Vitamin K).
