Hi everyone. Currently I am feeding my budgie a mix seed diet. My local grocery store has this food as well: Vitakraft Budgie Food 500G.
I'm not sure If I can post a link to the site so I'll just type the ingredients here:
o support the immune system, improve health, increase wellbeing and provide complete source of trace elements
Provides all essential vitamins and minerals
Prevents deficiency syndromes, supports metabolism and keeps thyroid gland healthy
Supports your bird's vitality and encourages feather growth
Complete pet food for budgerigar.
Feeding as in their natural habitat
In their original Australian habitat, parakeets have a varied food supply with all the vital elements. Premium Menũ is gently prepared from selected sun ripened seeds such as red, yellow and white millet, oat grain and protein rich polished seeds and honey.
Premium Menũ with the unique Iodine Vital Complex enriched with Vital Pellets to support the immune system against microorganisms, improve health, increase wellbeing and to provide the complete source of trace elements.
Mineral, Vitamin and Iodine Rapid Premium Menũ provides all essential vitamins and minerals. It prevents deficiency syndromes and supports the metabolism. The nourishing Iodine Rapid Complex keeps the thyroid gland healthy.
Honey and cod liver oil support your bird's vitality and encourage feather growth.
I have moved your thread to the Diet and Nutrition section, where it's most appropriate.
Besides the fresh seeds I get at the local feed store, on occasion I also offer the Vitakraft brand of seed mix. The one I use is the premium menu vitality plus (sugar free recipe).
Up until now, I have never had a problem with the Vitakraft brand, even when it comes to their treat seed sticks and millet spray.
Besides the seed mix, it would be good to start your budgie on fresh foods.
Romaine lettuce is a good starter veggie to introduce and so are sprouted seeds.
The stickies on this section have all the information and tips on how to improve your budgie's diet.
