Default Charcoal

Do any of you give your budgies small amounts of charcoal along with their food? Saw a bottle in the pet store, claiming that it helps digestion.

No I don't and I would not recommend it.
Charcoal can absorb vitamins/minerals the bird needs for nutrition and good health. This is definitely not something I'd mess around with.

I have a cuttlebone, mineral block and manu clay rose in all of my birds' cages.

They get ACV as a natural pro-biotic

I agree, definitely not a good idea!

Charcoal is known as an absorber of compounds, as Deb mentioned.
