Choosing the right budgie bird food might be a little complicated. There is some food, which is completely prohibited for the budgies, while other food is necessary to keep them healthy. Let’s take a look at what food your budgies can safely eat.
- Budgie bird food list starts with soaked or coached oat or wheat. Make sure to pay attention to the soaked oats. If it is getting darker or looks dirty, don’t give such food to your budgie. If you are keeping oats and wheat in the refrigerator, then it will not coach. If you leave it in a dry place for coaching then make sure it doesn’t go bad.
- Go to the veterinarian to ask which porridge can be good for your budgie. It can be rice or buckwheat porridge.
- Fruits and vegetables. Budgies love carrots, lettuce and apples. If you are planning to give grapes or cherries, the budgie might not like the red color and will not eat them. You can give green grapes, which are sweet. Sour grapes or green apples can lead to digestion problems.
- Eggs and egg shells. Give your budgies boiled eggs with grated egg shells. It should be given once or twice a week. During the breeding season, birds should be given grated egg shells every day in order to provide them with enough calcium to lay eggs.
Budgie bird cages should have enough space for the bird feeders. In fact, the best idea would be to hang the feeder outside the cage. This way you will save space inside the cage and will have an easier time cleaning it. Budgies like to throw food around, so messiness is unavoidable. Try to minimize it as much as possible. This can be accomplished by buying no mess bird food and cleaning the cage at least once a day.
