Look around for some Beak Appetite, it is a wet food, you just add water and cook it, some are microwavable and some you just boiling water. It is very easy and very good food, Tiki like the Carribean Crunch, it has all kinds of stuff in it like seeds,nuts, veggies, fruits, rice and much more. Tiki loves it. What you do is take out the other food dishes with the seeds in it and just leave that food in there for a couple hours, and the replace the seeds and remove the wet food. It might take a couple days before he eats it but he will and will love it too. Our bird loves it, we always warm it up a bit too, I read that conures like warm food like us, just be very careful that food can heat up quick, it only needs a few seconds to warm. Also if he is being stubborn you can mix a little of his seeds in it, we actually do that everytime now but just a little bit of seeds. They also come in many flavors, so far there isn't one Tiki didn't like. They also make one that is called Veggie Heaven, it is all veggies and Tiki actually wasn't a fan of that one but we mixed it with the other kind and he ate it. So try that you can find it at Petco, I have not seen it at Petsmart near me but you can check. Also I know you can order it if you can't find. DrsFosterSmith have it in their catalog I believe. We also add a tiny pinch of vitamins to it, Prime is the brand it is the best stuff out there as far as vitamins and it can be used on almost any type of bird. It works best on wet food, just put a tiny pinch and stir it in, it has everything they need, if they eat pellets though you shouldn't use it at all. Prime is like $10-$12 for a little jar, but it actually lasts a long time because you only use a tiny bit. Well I hope that helps, try to find some of that Beak Appetite, I am sure he will love it, might take a few days but just take out the seed bowl and put in the beak appetite for a couple hours twice a day, you should try to give him some once in the morning and once at night, and the rest of the day just have his seed mix in there, not a lot though, you don't want him to fill up on seeds and not eat the wet food. It is a bit messy though, sometimes he gets it all over his face and beak, and we usually just rub it off with water, although he does it himself sometimes. AGain he loves the stuff. So good luck and best wishes. Jloc

Agreed Tiki tries to eat everything we eat, as long as it's not junk food it's fine, also of course you know no avacado, chocolate, caffine, ect. Also try to never give them anything fried, the grease can make them sick. Jloc

Yes, it comes in a little carton with a plastic lid. It's around $5-$6 but it makes a lot of meals. The best way to do it is cook it and feeze most of it, and just take out a little at a time to feed him, enough for two meals is what we do. It lasts in the fridge for 4 or 5 days I believe but we like to freeze the extra. It's good stuff so give it a try, best of luck. Jloc
