Mitred Conure Care and feeding
A roomy cage is required unless the bird is to be let out for extended periods. Many birds can spend most of their time on a play pen or parrot perch. They eat a variety of sprouts, seeds, nuts, fruits, vegetables, and commercial pellets, as well as the same nutritional foods humans eat.
A mitred conure requires a large cage with at least a 24-inch square footprint and a minimum height of 36 inches. Provide perches rated for strong chewers and replace them periodically to keep the bird entertained. Mitred conures are athletic birds who require a play area or gym stand outside of their cage.
These birds enjoy bathing and can be regularly showered with a spray bottle or a sink sprayer.
They breed readily if they have the right size aviary. The hen lays two to four eggs which are incubated for about 23-26 days. The young fledge after about 59 days. The nest box size should be 12″ x 12″ x 12″.
Conures love roomy cages! A cage best suited for a conure must be large enough that the tail does not touch the bottom, and the bird has enough room for unrestricted movements.
For a small size conure, a minimum of 24″x16″x20″ (60 x 40 x 50 cm), and for the larger species, a minimum of 44″x26″x40″ (120 x 65 x 100 cm). This will provide room for both horizontal exercise and vertical climbing.
Provide two Perches, sized between 3/4″ to 1″ (2 – 2.5 cm). Place one up high for roosting and one low by the food, water, and gravel dishes. Natural perches from willow, poplar and fruit trees are good for the bird’s feet and for it’s beak. The gnawing it will do on the perches will also alleviate your pet’s boredom.
Tame, hand-fed mitred conures can make affectionate family pets when given plenty of love and attention. Mitred conures are a good choice for owners who enjoy spending time interacting with a pet bird. This bird will need at least two to four hours of exercise, interaction, and social time with you per day.
As with any pet bird, mitred conures have their moods. And, like other conure species, this bird can get nippy.
