And now only wants seeds. I am so confused. I realized this last evening when my budgie started tossing the pellets and looking frantically for seeds. He is in a cage with his best bud and I am not sure if I should offer seeds all throughout the day , just in case he is starving himself.
He and his cage buddy have been on a pellet diet (veges throughout the day) with seeds in the evening for almost 2 months. I don't know why he is suddenly not wanting to eat pellets anymore.
Also his poop looks brown instead of greenish black like his cage mate.
Brown poop is an indication the budgie is eating pellets.
A high quality seed mix is an important component of a healthy diet for budgies.
Your budgies should be getting 1 1/2 to 2 teaspoons of seed each per day even when on a pelleted diet.
It may work out better for you if you give them 1/2 of their daily ration each morning and the other 1/2 each evening.
Yeah you are right about the poop. They both have the brown poop, it just looks dark green when its more dried up. Yeah maybe he just wants more seed, today he was abit frantic but I gave him more seed . He later ate some pellets. Maybe he just wanted more seed lately.
