    Question What seems to be their favorite Fruit?

    I'm just curious what seems to be a Conure's (green cheek if specifics is a thing ) Favorite Fruit

    or are they pretty good at eating any fruit given to them - (that is not toxic of course)

    I was trying to find it on websites but they pretty much all just say "fruits" - - not much help there lol

    Oh and I know not all birds like the same things , just getting some ideas because I only have one bird who will even look at fruit and that's a Quaker Parrot he only likes a couple bites of an apple but he'll devour a small chunk of watermelon and banana as long as it is held for him (he doesn't like anything that squishes in his foot & he won't eat it at all if put in a dish)

    Thanks

    Aki loves grapes the most. She'll eat others, but she LOVES grapes...she doesn't get them that often, though.

    Grapes and apples are probably Darwins favorites, but he doesn't get them that often either (since they aren't that nutritious). Instead he gets mango, papaya, dates, pineapple, cantaloupe, figs.

    I might add that m bird LOVES all of these and will beg and beg for each one.

    Thanks guys

    So far I think they're the best birds I've ever owned when it comes to eating with out hesitation EVERYTHING we've given them they've eaten - most of my birds look at it for a while like it's going to attack them, then eventually mosey over to poke at it and If it doesn't hurt them they'll give it a try lol (but they do eat all their veggies like good lil birdies)

    these 2 can't wait for us to hurry up and put the food in the cage to get to it

    They love birdy bread (and i'm almost certain they've never had it, not many bird owners around here know what it is , and when we mention it we get " oh what pet store sells that?" some that are good friends we joke with and say " my pet store does. I make it"

    I gave them some left over corn from dinner last night ( we eat Frozen veggies) they devoured what i gave them , and i only gave them a couple pieces to see if they'd like it So i had to give them a few more pieces
    they got a piece of millet today and barely waited for it to be clipped to the cage before they went eating it, They also enjoyed their nutra berries

    So far, Gonzo is really liking apple, grapes, papaya, raisins, and peppers... I'm trying other things to see what he enjoys.

    Grapes and apples. But I only give fruit as a treat since it's so high in sugar and hence high in calories. Mine got corn last night, which i also give as a treat not a staple, since it has almost no nutritional value for them lol

    Oranges! All 5 of my conures love oranges! That is their favorite hands down.
