Arrow Question about Budgies diet

Hey guys, i have few seeds, I am not sure of the actual English real names for all of them except wheat, beans " small ones", green peas, and popcorn corn
All of these seeds are dry seeds so i was wondering what is the best way to make them to give them to my budgies? and is it okay if they eat from it now taking in consideration that its 40 - 45 degree where i live

Hello

Budgies should never eat dry corn kernels, beans, or peas since when they eat them, the foods absorb water and expand in their crops.

However, if you boil the beans and peas in water until they are cooked, drain them, and serve them at room temperature, they can have those just fine

Also, you can pop the popcorn (without salt or butter) and give them some of that, too.

I'm not sure about the wheat, hopefully another member comes along

I agree with StarlingWings.

With regard to the wheat grain, it would be best to sprout it before offering it to your budgies.
Sprouting changes and enhances the nutritional quality and value of seeds and grains.

I totally agree with Star

Also all these are very hard for budgies

I serve soaked wheat (at least 16 to 20 hours in water) to my budgies and itís one of their favourite treat

For how long do you boil the beans and peas? and should i mash the popcorn corn into very small pieces and give it to them?

Beans and dried peas usually take a few hours to cook through, if you have a crock-pot or something similar you can just put them in there with water and boil them throughout the day. You can taste them, when they're soft, they're done. They also freeze well so you can do a big pot and freeze what you won't use so you can keep it for a while.

Yes, the popped popcorn can be broken into smaller pieces so they can eat it more easily
