How can I safely introduce new foods to my budgerigars?
Changing a budgie’s diet suddenly can upset their digestive system. So always introduce new foods gradually over at least a week, unless your vet tells you otherwise.
How can I get my budgies to eat pellets instead of seed?
It can be tricky and may take weeks, but it can be done. It is important as seed-only diets can lead to obesity. Always have the pellets available, while gradually reducing the amount of seed. Never withdraw the seeds until you’re convinced that your budgie is eating the pellets and fresh foods. If in doubt, ask a vet with a special interest in birds for advice.
