The Zupreem has their fruitland pellets already mixed in. If you don't mind feeding food with artificial colors, go for it.

Harrison's super fine is good stuff. Were you able to find Zupreem natural for budgies?

Well the natural Zupreems are ok but I get the Roudybush pellets. I feel like i just dont trust Zupreem's excessive sugar levels

Yeah Zupreem naturals are good
Good to hear! Since Harrison’s pellets are extremely hard to find in my area, I will use zupreem natural for now until I get them! Thanks you everyone for the help!

@Meerkat07
I am guessing you get the nibbles size....
Are the nibbels size good for budgies? Are they easy to chew?

Yes i get the nibbles for them they are pretty easy to chew but if they are having a hard time converting to how hard it is i would put a little water in the bowl to soften it (maybe 1-5 drops) and slowly put less and less until they can eat it dry. Just be careful not to put too much water if your birds dont like eating wet stuff

I would get nibbles as crumbles are HUGE when I saw them at the store.
yes even if your bird could eat crumbles i would recommend giving them the size down anyway, or just getting them started that way. That way it fits easier in their small beaks, and they don't spill/waste as much.

MY BUDGIES ARE CONVERTING TO ROUDYBUSH PELLETS!! I am so excited since I found some online :eeeek::bliss:
Just because you found some and can purchase them, doesn´t mean your birds will eat them. I really hope they do, but be prepared in case they do not like them. I have some that eat one brand, and others that eat another.

Yes, many birds are very picky.

yes, I will be purchasing the Zupreme natural as well and see which ones they prefer.
