    mine get their daily plate of shredded romaine lettuce, corn and grated carrots. and then they get something else added to it each day. i alternate apple, broc, cellery, grapes, peaches and whatever else is in season. they love sprouts and watercress. the watercress i put into the birdbath, that way it lasts a few days!

    Uh... dandelions? As in the weed that I pull out of the garden... every stinkin' day... the same routine...?
    My birds like anything I give them it seems. Atleast one likes something, the other doesn't. I usually give them carrots and broccoli, eggs (they hate that), and let's see... they like apples too. Carrots is they're fave, though.

    Hi there,
    I get my supply of sprouts from these people- www.parrotsproutsandmore.com
    you can buy a sprout kit, half pint, pint or quart, which includes 4 jars and all the supplies to go with it, including a jar full of sprouts. Once your sprout mix is gone, you can order refill bags.
    These are my favorite sprouts. They do not mold easily, are easy to grow- just soak, sit, and rinse. You dont need to add anything to them- all organic. Best of all, my birds love them
    If you have any questions, feel free to ask and I will try and help.

    Re: Fruits/ Vegies ur budgies LOVE

    In the order Percy decided she liked them:
    apples
    carrots
    brown bread
    hard boiled eggs
    red and green pepper
    bulghur
    brown rice
    whole when pasta
    red-leaf lettuce
    celery
    parsley
    dill
    broccoli (oddly, that took some convincing)
    corn kernels
    unsalted roasted peanuts
    unsalted roasted pecans
    unsweetened toasted coconut

    Her favourites are definitely corn, egg, rice, and peanuts... but she seems to enjoy all the above.

    She's been offered other things, but these are what she'll eat of her own accord (ie: me not giving her very, very, small portions from my hand).

    Percy actually smelled like corn this morning, she had so much last night.
    RIP My Beautiful Percy

    11 budgies that will eat almost every veggie under the moon(especially broccoli!) but not so much fruit...some of them do however like a piece of banana or melon covered in seed once in a while. The 12th birdie will only eat carrots...not whole carrots, not grated carrots...but only when I cut it up into little tiny birdie bite size cubes! And of course, I happily oblige!

    My Slashy likes, umm;
    Carrots, but they have to be really wet and lashed on to the side of the cage like a branch. Then he chews and eats it, finally. He wont eat it if I put it in his dish.
    My mom says he likes strawberries, but I've never fed them to him myself.
    Sometimes when hes outside, he just eats grass or chews on green palms we have in the house.
    He also likes peaches, but it took him awhile to get to know what they are.
    He also really really likes kiwis.
    Thats really all I can think of up to this moment. Usually he REALLY REALLY picky.

    Re: Fruits/ Vegies ur budgies LOVE

    Alvin is liking carrots and broccoli.
    Of course..i get the baby carrots and cut little slits in them so he has a head start (like another TF member does on here. ) And he naws on broccoli..
    but.. i give it to him raw..and it seems like he has a hard time getting any of the floury stuff on the top.

    OH. and.. ive been feeding him carrots... but im not sure if hes just biting on it and letting it go..or if hes actually eating it? help..maybe?

    Chipper loves lettuce. He eats it so fast and he will get mad if I try to touch it.

    Re: Fruits/ Vegies ur budgies LOVE

    My Budgies have just started to eat broccoli. (sp??) They all love it, except for Babe, who is totally hooked on seeds. Cost me $60 at the vet to find out she's FAT!! But she and Bhuda were the two that I caught in a cage in my yard. They were outside for at least 3 weeks...eating the seed I put out for the wild birds and who knows what else!! So she is not very open to anything new.

    I've tried carrots, apple, pear, strawberrry...not much luck. But I will keep trying. They do LOVE the carrot tops though... so at least it's a start.

    They all love wheat bread too...so that's good...

    I was giving Bhuda and Babe some type of weed that I saw a picture of in a book that was safe for them to eat...and they did love it. Of course now, with the cooler weather coming... no more weeds for them.

    I'll keep trying different things and be happy if they'll eat just one or two things. Better than eating no fruits and veggies.
