If anyone has personal experience or successfully feeds budgie & tiel the same brand and size pellets I am all ears. I would love to hear what has worked because my bird's tastes and willingness/ability to break down food seems to vary quite a bit.
I have tried several pellets with the budgie and tiel. The tiel and the budgie will both eat Lafaber Pelletberries. I am not a fan of the pelletberries because I have to crush them for the budgie or he won't eat them. I then tried Roudybush Crumbles. My tiel prefers the Roudybush and will no longer eat the Pelletberries budgie is refusing to budge and only eats the Pelletberries.
Ideally I would like to get them on the same easy to feed pellet diet but failing that I would like to at least get the budgie on a diet that doesn't require manually crushing the food for him. Others I have tried and failed to convert to is Zupreem Fruit blend and Harrison's. What would you try next in my situation? I have considered Lafaber normal pellets. Goldnobles and Tops pellets seem like a better bet nutritionally but since I can't inspect them in person I don't know if I am going to have to crush again for the budgie or if they are even crush able.
Ace will only eat his Roudybush nibbles crushed and I have no problem crushing them. Anything to get Ace to eat pellets is fine by me You could look at the stickies in the Diet and Nutrition section and browse the internet about methods to covert your budgie to pellets. Ace was amazingly easy to convince to eat pellets as all I had to do was feed him some from my hand
