Feeding a budgie oats
by: Tracie

I would not encourage it to eat oats, they are just as fattening. Please read our Switching Budgies To Pellets article and work at getting your bird switched over to Harrison's or Roudybush pellets. No matter what, don't feed colored pellets or pellets full of sugar or chemicals. You can read the Switching Birds To Pellets article also, in case that method works better for you.

We have other articles on our Parrot Training page that might help you too.
