    "scavenging"

    sorry guys i don't know if i have added this post before cause i cant remember the answer. my question is .... do your budgies "scavenge" at the bottom of their cage like they would do in the wild (only not in a cage on the ground) they might be eating their poopies. i think i have watched Sky do it, i see him pick up one of his dropings, then crunch it up to little peices but i can't tell if he is eating them or not. He loves his cuddlebone and is always chewing on it and they love fruit so i dont' think she needs vitemins

    please help

    You can buy grates for the bottom of cages if your bird goes down there, because it's not too healthy for them.

    They're mainly for larger parrots, but I'm sure you can get them for budgie cages. It's just wire mesh that sits about an inch from the bottom so anything that falls to the floor is gone and out of the way.

    if fresh droppings fell to the floor though and hit the mesh, wouldn't it stick to the wire? Then my birds would still go down there.

    There would be a lot less droppings on the wire than there is on the actual floor, so it's healthier because they're not wading through it.
