    Food/Diet Plan Help! What to feed my birds?!

    I need to know the percentage (by weight) of pellets, seeds, veggies, and fruits to feed to my cockatiels and budgie.

    No more pellets left for my birds

    I ordered pellets for my budgies around 6 days before it ran out and the order said it would arrive in 3 days. There was a huge delay and it now says it will take 5 more days for the pellets to be delivered to my house. Unfortunately, there aren't many pet stores near my area and the ones that...

    Mealtimes for chop

    I've been feeding my budgies (2) bird chop in the morning and afternoon (along with giving them pellets in their food bowl and seeds as a treat). This is my first time as a bird owner and I'm just wondering, what time/ how many times should I feed my birds chop in a day? Should I continue...

    How to get budgies to eat fruit & veg

    Hi, Does anyone know how to get budgie to eat fruit and veg. I have tried leaving it in their cage and then replace it the next day but that didn’t work and leaving fruit in the cage means it goes brown so I end up taking it out after a few hours. I have tried hand feeding them it but they just...

    Can I feed this to my lovebirds and budgies?

    So long story short, I put all the seed shells from my birds feeding tray into a pot of soil. Some plants have grown, but I don't know if they are safe for my budgies or lovebirds.

    What veggies do your birds like the most?

    Hi, I've been looking up and around over the inter webs for good recipes for chop, and veggies to feed to my two wonderful budgies. Nua's favorite is bok choy, and the baby's is also bok choy.

    Is It Bad That I Don’t Feed My Budgies Millet?

    I have two parakeets and I don’t feed them millet. I used to and they loved it. However, I read somewhere that it was unhealthy to feed them it too often so I slowed their intake until I stopped feeding it to them at all. Right now they eat pellets and fruits and vegetables everyday. They also...
