    Gerber Baby Puffs

    Saw these in clearance while shopping the other day and grabbed them for my birdies- they looked like they might be a good treat. Mostly rice, wheat, and oat flour, some fruits, and not too much sugar. I tried them myself the taste is not bad. The birds are absolutley MAD for them! Theyve only...

    Are sesame seeds a healthy treat alternative, or are they just as bad a millet?

    I recently discovered my budgies love sesame seeds. So can I use this is a treat/reward for any good behaviour? Is it healthier than millet ? If so, does that mean I can give them more than I would with millet?

    Good Treats for Budgies?

    Hi all! I have recently been told that the bird food brand Kaytee has been linked to causing strokes in birds, I haven't really been able to find anything about it but I am still a little afraid of feeding her this brand, so I have recently switched to the Harrison's Feed brand for her main...

    Treat Ideas?

    Hello I have a little budgie named Belle who is really picky with her foods. I really want to try and add some new treats and snacks in to her diet but all the pack at the pet store seem to be too big or too hard for her little beak. Feel free to post here what snacks your budgies like to munch on!

    Eating extra food from the bottom of the cage?

    Hello! I should preface this by saying my bird is a peach-faced lovebird. His name is Winnie, he is young and healthy. Lately I've noticed a behaviour that might develop into a problem though! Often when he receives a treat in his cage, some of the pieces fall to the bottom. Recently he's...

    Getting a bird to accept treats from hands

    So my lovie that I have had for roughly 2 weeks currently won't eat any treats besides chopped walnuts and almonds and she will only eat them if they are in her food dish.

    Other than seed

    I'm looking for food other than seed and pellet suggestions. Venus is my new parakeet and I'm looking for healthy veggies to use as treats. She has several problems so I want to avoid sunflower and millet as a treat. Anything veggie or fruit or maybe pasta?

    Tropical Carnival Big Bites?

    Anybody feed this to their macs or 'toos? I saw it when I was grabbing some pellets and I was intrigued. But even if you haven't, what do you think? A nice bag o' treats or too much fatty stuff? F.M. Brown Tropical Carnival Macaw Food, 14-Pound: Amazon.ca: Pet Supplies

    Looking for good treats for budgies

    So, I'm currently training my little budgie Twiggy to step up and step down so I can get her out of the cage. I'm currently using millet bits as treats because I can pick out if I would want to give her a smaller one or a bigger one, depending on how much I'm training her at that point in time...
