Papaya's flesh nutritional value exceeds that of apples, peaches, grapes in vitamins, minerals, amino acids. (It also contains less water content than any other fruit.) Also contains antioxidants & the seeds contain more nutrition than the flesh. The seeds are 100% safe for parrots. My conure loves her papaya & the seeds & I offer it regularly along with a large variety of other foods.

Papaya and Conure diet
by: Tracie

Papaya is safe in small amounts, but make sure you are feeding your conure 80% healthy pellets like Harrison's and only 20% healthy treats.

We have health and training articles on our Parrot Training page and a long list of what is and is not safe for parrots on our non-toxic for birds list
