 Blue Crown Conure Bird Food
I wanted to confirm I have a Blue Crown Conure and I have been ordering the following food for her, and wanted to confirm its the right food, as there is one for a Parrot and one for a Conure.
The name of the food is: 
Higgins Sunburst Gourmet Bird Food – Parrot 3 lb 
Does it matter if I get the one that says Conure or should I stick to the one that says Parrot on the packaging?
Hi Sonal
I included the ingredient panel from the conure blend below but if you look at the ingredients for the parrot blend you’ll find that they are almost identical.
The key difference is the size of the pieces in the blends with the parrot blend having the larger pieces.
This is because usually, the bigger birds especially with zygodactyl feet (meaning having two toes pointing forward and two backward) like to hold their food with 1 foot while eating.
If your Conure does in fact like to hold larger chunks of food you might want to change over to the parrot blend
If that’s not an issue for your bird we will tell you what we recommend to many people seeking to change bird food – don’t try to fix what’s not broken.
Higgins Sunburst Gourmet for Conures is a great blend and if your Blue Crown Conure is enjoying it I wouldn’t change a thing
