Adult conure thinking my fingers are going to feed her? Change of food and what's the best option for captive Conure's?
(Mesa, AZ USA)
Hello, I have a green cheek conure and was told that she is approximately 2-3 years old... when I am preening her with my index finger and thumb near her beak she begins to bob her head up and down... is this a normal behavior? Could she possibly be thinking that she is being fed like when she was a baby? I've scheduled a vet check with her this Sunday to get her beak and nails trimmed. The person that I got her off of gave me a seed diet, I am aware that this isn't the best diet for Conure's in captivity so was wondering what's the best option to wean her off of a seed diet? I've been given a lot of info on a pellet diet and a all fruit and veggie diet with the occasional seeds thrown in... all these questions will be asked by BonBon's avian vet but I just want to know some other options especially the food choices! Thanks for your time!
