    Re: what can budgies eat?

    My budgies like to eat broccoli, as much for the fum of shredding it and making a mess, I believe, as for the taste.. and I believe they are okay with grapes, apples, lettuce (but I saw earlier that iceberg lettuce should be avoided, but my pair like romaine or ordinairy round lettuce. Boiuled egg (wth or without crushed shell) is okay as a treat but shouldn't be given too often.

    Don't be surprised if he at first diesn't show any interest, it's new so he'll be cautious.

    I am sure that somewhere on this very site a year or two back that there was a sticky here about what budgies could and could not eat. I'll run a search and see if I can run you up a link.

    Re: what can budgies eat?

    Most people foods are fine for them - my bird loves cooked pasta and rice, but those should be treats as too many carbs can lead to yeast problems. Kale is good for them especially since it's high in calcium. You listed pretty much all the foods to avoid.

    Just be careful of too many foods such as spinach, since it has high oxalic acid content and can lead to the body not absorbing calcium as well if they eat too much.

    Re: what can budgies eat?

    While I'm unsure as to whether uncooked spaghetti will hurt Perry, I wouldn't recommend it... Cooked spaghetti noodles that are plain (without sauce) can be a yummy treat for him as well as a good source of carbohydrates. Just be sure to not over do it as too many carbs will do more harm than good. As for other human food... Fresh fruits and vegetables, such as carrots, broccoli, apples, dandelions, field lettuce and spinach. As some budgies tend to be picky with different types of food, it is always best to introduce them to it gradually. Good luck to both you and Perry!!

    I like the photo of your bird. Back ground is done very well also.

    I saw a very popular recipe with egg mashed and it used the shell. Perhaps slice off some of your egg and mash it with the shell?
