    kamino TRIES to eat everything i do, but his favorite foods he actually CAN eat are carrots and broccoli...kamino goes nuts for them! i heard peas are a big hit with budgies, but kamino hasn't gotten any yet because i'm trying to eat food so i don't have to take so much with me when i move. kamino also likes bananas and red apples very much.

    But budgies are obsessed with broccoli and carrots! They are okay with apples. I have tried bannanas and other things, but I have yet to tried peas.

    Mine also love carrots, and I think it is their favourite. They also love broccoli, watercress and peppers. They will try pretty much anything, but they definitely seem to prefer veggies to fruits.

    Zippo, for all the things i've tried...have consistently loved carrots, I get the little mini carrots (forgot what they are called) but the ones that come in little packages, it usually last me a while, till it goes bad. I usually...cut one in half or give him a whole piece and cut little slits in it so he has a head start so he can start knawing on it. If i don't he won't eat it,

    He also likes Kale, makes him go crazy... but he also likes to carry it around and dunk it in his tub to bathe in. ^_^;

    Broccoli, when not fighting, dancing, or chucking it
    Cauliflower
    Carrots
    Apple (only some types)
    Lettuce (but don't do often b/c not nutrituous supposedly-just water)
    Frozen corn thawed to warm

    I want to try more, but never sure what to get nor what is safe when I'm at the supermarket.

    Bonito is crazy about corn. Doesn't matter how sweet or unsweet or dry. If it's corn, he'll gobble it up. He also loves broccoli..I buy the whole stalks and pick off the "trees" in it and give him at least one per day. Find it on the floor a lot but only because he moves it around with his beak while eating...

    He'll occassionally eat apples, though I don't offer them as much as I should. I'm thinking of trying him out on cucumbers and lettuce next week. Bought some grapes the other night, going to see how he takes to some of those, too.

    Wishing I could get sprouts but not sure how to work with or grow them yet.
    Bonito wants whatever I am eating, and he makes it clear by watching me eat with a look on his face that he tries to place as curious but which we both know is "I want that, too!"

    My little Spooky is crazy about broccoli and carrots which I cut into tiny pieces. For the most part, he's eaten every kind of vegetable Ive given him.

    BUT: He's terrified of fruit. He simply will not eat them, let alone look at them.

    We put grapes in his cage once and he movies as far away from them as possible. Ive tried giving him apples, blueberries, strawberries, banana, everything, he's terrified. And it so far has been the only thing he;s afraid of!

    He's also scared of rice.

    I dont get it!

    Do you all cook the broccoli, or raw? My 2 budgies won't touch anything green.
    They like brown rice, and scrambled or boiled egg. Oh and corn. That's it!
