Default Serving budgie mash

I have 2 little budgies, nice birdies.

First time ever having birds, and I'm learning a lot. Thanks to all the good peeps on this board.

I made a "mash" tonight with vegetables, grains, seeds, etc.

I froze little portions in a used egg carton.

I filled the egg cups up about eh 1/2 way.

When I go to feed them to the birds, should I thaw? Or just pop out and place frozen in their tub? Is either ok?

I guess I'm thinking if I can pop in frozen, it will "keep" longer before I have to remove what they didn't eat?

It's basically peas, carrots, beans, oat, millet, some of their usual seed mix, I pureed it into a mash and mixed it all up...then froze it in the egg cups.

Thanks in advance.

Here's Fenway playing in her new cage

If it's still Winter time where you live, then it's best to let it thaw.
You can take the daily portion out of the freezer the night before and place it on the refrigerator instead. That will give it time to thaw overnight and be ready to offer.
Also for overall health and hygiene reasons, it would be best to place the mash in proper ice trays and not use the egg cartons.

Your Fenway is a cutie! Good song choice there, "Cherry Blossom Girl" by Air, right?

It's always best to allow anything frozen to thaw completely before offering it to your budgies.
The shock of frozen food on a tiny budgie's system can be quite daunting and isn't really good for them.

I agree with aluz that it is better to use an ice cube tray rather than re-purposing an egg carton for freezing in the future.

Fenway is adorable!!
