So I have two conures, a green cheek (Skye Hawke) and a sun conure (Sunny, I know, original). We also keep Sunbeam and Moondrop (budgies) in the cage as well. It's a massive cage. I guess my problem I get so many different recommendations from stores and online for bird dietary needs, I'm not sure what I should be sticking too. They eat apples, a seed mix with pellets, and some dried fruit for treats.
What is the best possible things I can feed my birds?
Also, when we take sunny out, all she wants to do is eat my hair and fingers. Is this normal? Sunny also squawks at running water. Dishwasher and the sink are apparently her worst enemy 🙄. I've tried showing sunny that it's just a sink, but sunny just yells at it some more. Sunny doesn't squawk a whole lot outside of that.
We bought sunny from a pet store, who bought it from a breeder who hand fed it. But we noticed some of her tail feathers didn't look right. It's been a few months and they are getting better, but does it normally take that long?
Last question. Sunny really doesn't play with us. Like I said before, she just wants to nibble me everywhere. Is that ok?
Sorry for the billion questions. I want to take the best care I can of these birds, My wife sometimes wants to throw in the towel, so at this point I'm trying to help everyone regain their sanity.😖
