What is the best brand or type of foods for a Jenday conure?

I give my Jenday Conure fresh fruits and vegetabls everyday to try because he is still in the process of weaning, but I'd really like to find a high quality mixture that will complement the foods I give him daily when he starts completely eating on his own. Thank you!

Best diet for conure

Dr B has answered this several times before, so I will repeat his answer.

Your bird should be eating 80% high quality pellets and 20% healthy treats and that includes seeds. Avoid food, parrot or human, that has sugar, salt and chemical flavorings.

Dr. B suggests you feed Harrison's or Roudybush pellets. If you need help converting your bird to pellets, you can read his Switching Birds To Pellets article and stick with it. It can take a few days or even a year to convert a bird to the healthy food. YOU are the one feeding the bird, you have to take control.
