What To Feed My 27 Birds From Finches To A Blue Front Amazon

Hi I’m looking for a dietary regimen for an Amazon Blue Front parrot.

He is used to a seed diet and I’m looking to provide him with a healthier diet.

Do you have any recommendations?

Also, I need a healthy diet for a sun conure. A dietary regimen for parakeets and also for finches of various varieties.

How Does This Budgie Not Know He Is Handicapped?

I have waited un-patiently for his wings to grow out as my other parakeets are flighted.

 

I see from the way he perches like a kick stand mostly on a ladder. That he has close access to his one wing with a bad leg and over preens and chews on just this one which makes him flutter lopsided.
