Getting a budgie to eat healthy

Please read our Switching Budgies To Pellets article for instructions on getting your bird to eat healthy.

Your budgie should be eating 70% pellets, like Harrison's or Roudybush, and 30% healthy treats including seeds.

You can read the Switching Birds To Pellets article that was written by an avian vet too.

Lastly, we have other health and training articles on our Parrot Training page that will help you too.
