At three and a half weeks into the quarantine period for our Budgies, they already have learned to eat the best Budgie diet and the best Budgie sprouts possible!
These budgies were raised especially for the Healthy Bird Project’s Long-term Health & Longevity Feeding Trial program, and were donated to us for this long-term study.
To learn more about this long-term study and to donate to help support our fundraiser to pay for their first avian vet visit and the creation of our nonprofit, please follow this link:
These Budgies quickly learned to choose and eat our BBFE! complete protein sprouting blends — the best Budgie diet and best Budgie sprouts. Choosing these fresh foods over the seeds and pellets they had been raised on. During quarantine, and when introducing healthier foods, it’s important that their familiar foods (seeds and pellets) be available. Ultimately we will wean them off all dry seeds and pellets, as these foods are not good for them.
The best way to introduce fresh raw spinach leaves is to clip them to the side of the enclosure with a wooden clothespin. These Budgies quickly jumped right in and began eating the spinach!!! Good birds!
