My conures had 3 babies, the mother died almost 2 wks ago,the father was feeding them, but today we notice that he was not getting into the nest, since Kaytee Exact was recalled, my local petco and petsmart does not carry anything else. What else can I feed them in the mean time? Please help.

There is a very good one called Roudy Bush and is found here. Since you need it right away, your local pet store should carry it. You can read about it here. It is as good as or better than the Kaytee. There is a reason why they are not making Kaytee anymore so try the Roudybush pellets.

Also, it would be a very great idea to take the father and the babies to be tested for infections. Especially if you don't know why the mother died. Birds do not get over infections without a diagnosis and treatment by an Avian Vet ONLY. The babies will not last long with an infection as they have no immune system developed to help fight an infection.Bacterial/Viral infections are highly contageous so if mother died from an infection, the others also have it.

Thanks for writing and good luck,
Linda
