    Thanks for your advice all three responses agreed with a
    Breeder who I had contacted. Conures are sometimes referred
    to as members of the Parakeet family, so I thought maybe they
    needed gravel, but the answer was NO. I will keep some of the
    Oyster Shell stuff on the side for when Fifi gets Millett and
    put up a Cuttle Bone and/or Mineral Block. THANKS AGAIN
