There are many bird feeds out there, but the best type of feed for your pet parrot/conure is a natural diet. While its is easy to say, it can be quite difficult to accomplish. Most of the United States is in a temperate climate zone and most of the parrots/conures came from tropical climates. The natural food that they eat in the wild where they originated from doesnt exist in most parts of the USA. But dont let this get you down in your search for a more natural feed for your parrot/conure.
There are some feed formulations out there that fit the nutritional profile that your parrot/conure is looking for. It has equivalent ingredients that are in their natural form. For example, take the case of Zupreem Parrot/Conure Natural bird feed from Pet Store

Some species of parrots are prone to Iron storage disease wherein the Iron tends to pile up in their system which can cause a serious health problem.

Zupreem Parrot/conure Natural formulation uses a natural blend of carrots, celeries, beets, groundspinach and water cress.

The ingredients are specially blended to maximize palatability so that even the most finicky parrot/conure would find this feed tasty and irresistible.
