Default Sprout mix

Hi everybudgie!
I've heard that pellets aren't that good for budgies, and that you should feed them sprouted seeds instead.
Is this true?
And if so, what are some good sprout mixes for budgies? Is this one a good mix?: https://sproutpeople.org/dr-bird-sprout-mix/
Thanks!

Pellets are fine for budgies as a part of their healthy diet.

Please refer to the link below:

Yes, the sprout mix you linked is fine.

Thanks! But would you recommend pellets over sprouted seeds? Or should I just feed my budgies both?

No question -- I would give them both

All budgies should have seeds everyday whether they are sprouted or dry is up to you. Dry seed should be 1 1/2 - 2 tsp per budgie per day
I keep pellets in my birds' cages 24/7
Vegetables, egg food and occasionally a fruit treat round out a healthy diet.

Did somebody say sprouts?!


The sprout people have great products, and their small bird mix is fantastic. i highly recomend purchasing that, and trying out sprouting for yourself. Once you get the hang of that, you can start making your own sprout mix.

All of the ingredients in that mix are easy to find at your local health food store, or bulk food store, and you can make you own mix for less $$, and the best part is that you can also customize it for your own flock.

Pellets are a very important part of any flocks diet. I'm a hug fan of Roudybush (Harrison's is also fantastic). They are a well balanced pellet and gives our birds all the nutrients they need. The best part about pellets is that our birds are not able to pick and choose which seeds they want to eat, and which they want to avoid.

Pellets should be available 24/7, and sprouts given once a day.
