Most of all budgies diet info! Budgies can be picky about their food and how they like it. eg. carrot grated or hole. I have 4 budgies, they are all un-tame and if offered a whole carrot it scars them into thinking its a finger.
You must always have budgie seed and water in their cage/aviary, it should be emptied, refilled and cleaned daily.
SAFE Fruit and Veg for budgies:
Apples (NO SEEDS), Artichoke, Broccoli, Brussels sprouts, Carrot, Celery, Corn, Cucumber, Egg plant, Endive, Fennel, Green or Red pepper, Iceburg lettuce, Spinach, Parsley, Romaine Lettuce, Zucchini.
Chocolate, alcohol, and more.
Just for those who are breeding budgies:
Once a week (or 2-3 times weekly for molting or nesting birds), feed this EGG FOOD RECIPE:
1.Wash an organic egg.
2.Drop the entire egg into a food processor or blender. The shell is a good source of calcium.
3.Whirl it all up to mince the shell into the egg.
4.Cook thoroughly. DO NOT USE TEFLON OR NON-STICK COOKWARE as the fumes are toxic to birds!
5.It’s fine to use a little vegetable oil in your skillet to prevent sticking.
6.Mix in finely diced vegetables and/or herbs and diced whole grain bread cubes.
7.Serve lukewarm. Remove remains from dish within 1-2 hours to prevent spoilage.
8.Feed egg food once a week (more often if molting or raising babies).
Here is some Info on their diet.
40% Canary - (Phalaris Canariensis) as pictured here, not to be confused with the seed mix sold to feed canaries.
50% Millet – (Setaria Italica) made up of a mixture of White, Panicum, Yellow and Japanese millets.
10% Oats – I prefer whole oats to groats or hulled oats, which have had the outer hull removed.
