Hello
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 feeding them chop in the morning and afternoon or do I have to only feed it to them once a day?

Whatever fits your schedule and your bird's needs :)

I only feed once a day as my parrot doesn't eat a lot of veggies and it's basically enrichment for him. His main diet is pellets. If his main diet was veggies, 2-3 times a day would be better as you don't want to leave food out to spoil and it would need to be refreshed. I don't like to leave it out longer than 4 hours.
