    Can a Budgie Eat Grass?

    I put some grass at the bottom of their bird bath -- new grass from the lawn that is sprouting in spring. It hasn't been treated (yet, not sure if the landlord uses organic or not). But is grass safe for budgies to eat?

    I did a google search ...can budgies eat grass. There are several sites. Read the article under the website birds online...everything about budgies. And then read others. It appears that grass is safe for them to eat.

    I have heard that some people will make a little box and plant grass in it for the birds to eat. Just make sure the dirt you use is nice and clean and not treated with anything. Also if you sprout some of the seed mix you feed to them they like that as well. Boomer use to love eating his seeds that I soaked overnight too but make sure it is nice and clean so always rinse the seeds before doing it and also rinse them before serving them to your bird.
    Fly Free Boomer, we will forever love you.
