Feeding Your Budgie

While budgies were once fed mainly on seeds, that diet has now been discredited, and seeds are usually used only as special treats.

Pelleted food made in a small size is available for budgies and provides balanced nutrition in every bite. Budgies should also be offered small amounts of fresh dark green leafy vegetables; tiny slices of apple, grapes, melons, sprouts and other fresh foods are relished by budgies who are introduced to them at a young age. Remember, too, not to leave moist food in the cage too long – it is an excellent breeding ground for bacteria.
