Default Weird foods that your budgie likes...

I just made a packet of Vifon noodles (they're like Ramen in the states but Polish instead) anyways... As soon as I sat down to eat them, Peanut immediately left his cage, flew to the back of the couch next to me, watched me eat for about 30 seconds before flying past to swoop in and snatch a noodle off of my fork. He proceeded to fly back to his cage and devoured it...

First, is he going to be ok?


He wont leave me alone now, keeps flying over to me, has landed on my shoulder, my arm, my finger and hes desperately trying to get to my bowl of noodles!

Any other weird foods your birds go bonkers for?

Haha, budgies can be soooo persistent. Once they get a taste of a food they like there is no stopping them!

Penry is OBSESSED with Cheez-Its. When he sees (or even hears) the box opening, he will go nuts trying to get out of his cage to get some. If he's already out he gets really pesky and does everything he can to get some. One time, he even crawled into the Cheez-It box!

I think the best thing to do with Peanut since he already ate the noodle is just keep an eye on him. He will likely be fine. The noodle itself isn't bad, but the seasoning might be iffy. Since it's probably salty make sure he has fresh water to take in or maybe offer him a bath so he can drink.

For whatever reason, my budgies really, REALLY like summer sausage.

Anything I'm eating if it comes out of a bag, in a cup or in a bowl, I have 3 little heads trying to dive into it! and they don't like to share

Mallorn likes cheese. Her favorites are feta cheese and shredded colby jack, but any cheese works, really. She also has a thing for cereal
Haha! I love everyone's stories on here, it's so funny that everyone's budgies like different things

Oh, and I forgot to mention that Mallorn is strangely obsessed with those red bean paste balls covered in sesame seeds that are a type of chinese food? I don't know if anyone's heard of them but I was eating one the other day and she literally flew out of her cage and pecked at it before I shooed her away and tried to finish it before she did!

YES! they have incredible hearing ...... Budget's cage is in the lounge room, or tv room as some might say, anyways he always comes zooming around the corner when he hears a packet rattle, or a vitamin bottle shake !!! No he doesn't eat those .The budgies here get there own porridge cooked in the morning for them, no milk though or sugar though.
Budget will try to eat anything on my plate, so he is locked away for meal times. The others have nicer manners LOL.

Peanut did another number on me last night, this time over Cod fish! I let him have a little nibble and he really liked it but I know fish is high in metals so put him away quickly. He stayed at the side of his cage watching me though! How come when a dog stares at me when I eat, it annoys me, but when Pea does it, it's cute?

Well, Blue certainly has an odd taste for food, but I agree that it probably has most to do with it being mine not his! Some of his favourite stolen snacks he enjoys are milk-sodden cereal, one time I had a dollop of mayonnaise on the side of my plate for chips and down he swoops and takes a big beakful of mayo! His little tongue was going crazy, thinking he's not going to like it he then took a very quick few beakfuls before I had to put him in his cage (mayo can't be good for him and on worrying about how it would sit in his tummy, his cage seemed the best place!). Lastly, last night he took a sneaky peck out of the kids' spagetti hoops! and I thought they'd be more inclined to go for the dry food, as I shooed him away he ran through it and then flew onto my head, with little red soggy feet tangling into my hair...kids thought this was too funny!

I suspect that most instances they probably don't really like the stolen food rather they see us eating it and want in on the action .
I have learnt to take my snacks outside if I want peace LOL. It is not that I mind sharing but I do worry on the health issues that could arise from them eating things they shouldn't
