Wow! And people say my
budgies are spoiled.
Thanks for all the great tips! I have the natural pellets coming in the mail, so I think I will try to grind some and sprinkle that on the food for a bit and see if they transition easily to a separate pellet dish. If not, I think I will try the canary fruity pellets. Miracle meal also looks great. I may look into providing that sometimes rather than the egg food.
Your foraging method for feeding also sounds very cool. Sashi was a FAT baby lol, but nowadays both are normal weight and get lots of exercise, so I haven't felt the need to ration their food.
