Default Gorging on seed

Hi everyone. Just got a 8 week old Budgie. “Chico”. He goes at his seed dish non stop. Eating for an hour or more until I take it away fearing he could over eat and hurt himself. What should I do?

If you are giving your bird the proper diet with the right amount of seed, it is no problem if your bird eats at his seed dish. He should only have 1-2 teaspoons of seed a day. He should also have fresh veggies and pellets to round out his diet.
Here are some articles that will help:

Good luck!

I guess I found Chico’s eating habit odd because I’ve had other budgies and their seed dish was always available with seed and they ate off and on all day when hungry. I will adjust his amounts and feed morning and evening. Thanks.

No problem. Every bird is a bit different. I know my current bird is not likely to eat too much, even if it is put in her cage, while others eat everything in sight. On the other hand, I have to be careful that she does not shred things outside her cage that she is not supposed to eat. :shrug:

Good luck!
