Your lilac crowned amazon needs a wide variety of food. They need pellets and seed mixes, fresh fruits, vegetables, and table food. Your blue-fronted amazon will show distinct preferences, but you must take control. A grey will gorge on Sunflower seeds to the neglect of more nutritious food. greys need extra calcium, as they are unable to store it in their bones.
