Yorkshire-based Johnston & Jeff has conjured up a new blend for conures.
Conure Mix has been developed by the manufacturer in partnership with top breeder Cheryl Robinson, of Riverside Aviaries, resulting in a blend specifically formulated for this type of parrot.
The species-specific food contains 24 individual ingredients. When combined, these include high levels of calcium and protein, which are vital to conure well-being.
The recipe is suitable for all types of conure and the ingredients provide a wide variety of colours, textures, tastes, and smells.
Maddy Johnston, marketing and media manager at Johnston & Jeff, said the company had developed Conure Mix to help keepers and breeders promote a lifelong well-being of their birds.
“We believe feeding Conure Mix, as part of a balanced diet, is the most effective way to avoid disease brought about by nutritional deficiency,” she said.
Breeder Cheryl Robinson added: “35 years of breeding at Riverside Aviaries and perfecting our conures’ diet with Johnston & Jeff’s high-quality blends and ingredients, has ensured happy and healthy captive birds.
“Conure Mix is the perfect blend, and we’ve allowed our birds to be the ones that approve that.”
Conure Mix joins the company’s extensive range of speciality and species-specific feeds including Galah Mix, Low Sunflower for African Greys and Lovebird Mix.
