When we bought Azure 2 was ago the pet store recommend pellets so we bought Mazura brand. But, budgie refused to eat. After 2 days we gave in and bought Vitasmart seed mix and she was thrilled. I continued to mix the seed with pellets but she just dug through them. Today, I tried crushing the pellets to seed size and mixed with a few seeds and once the seed was gone she ate the pellet! Yay! Now, I need to know how to get her to eat fresh veggies/fruit. I've tried several and she won't touch it.
