Default Food Bowl Recommendations

I wonder if anyone knows of any shallow food bowls suitable for budgies that they could recommend.

Henry, being a very small bird, has a habit if climbing into his food bowl when he's eating. It's not a big deal, but I don't like to think he might poop in the food.

When I feed them, I put down eight food pots and then I have a large flat dish I put of the cage floor with a sprinkling of seed and some veggies as well.
So, Henry has plenty of options and is able to eat food without a problem. I just don't like to fill the seed containers up because it's a lot of waste otherwise but he's so dinky he finds it easier to climb in.

When I first bought him home, I did fill the dishes up more so he didn't have to climb in, but he was on his own then.



Edit: Just to add, Henry isn't doing the baby bird thing where he climbs in and kicks about the seed, he is just eating.

And look at the dink....

Emma,

Perhaps you could try something similar to this?

I don't have any suggestions for you, just really enjoyed the pictures of Henry in the food dishes! He's so cute.

Lol, that is Leah. He is cute.

Deb, I'll try one of the gravity feeders I have. I just feel that it'll end up where he doesn't use it because the others want to use it.... You know why budgies are like. When he climbs in the others don't tend to want to get him out and eat from that pot, so that's one good thing. I'll try adding a couple tonight at dinner and see how he does

You could think about using a budgie bathtub as a shallow dish for his seed.

It is a shallow base and doesn't need to be filled.

Penn-Plax Birdie Bathtub

Peachy used to have his seed in a Bird Bath like the one above when I first got him.

Oh that's a great idea, Deb!

I know some don't have the surrounds on so I'll see if I can find him something like that!
You're awesome!

But would he go in there and sit?

My budgie Biz sits in any food dish that doesn't have a cover on it. I have two shallow bird baths I use sometimes and he'll sit in those as well. I bought the smallest stainless coop cups and he wormed his way into there as well.

While I really wanted to use stainless, I've found given his proclivities to jump into food dishes, the plastic ones that have a lid / hood have been going well. I'll see if I can locate a link or photo. I know that Prevue Hendryx makes the ones I have been using.

Something like this is similar to what I've used: https://www.arcatapet.com/m/item.cfm?...703&fullsite=0

I've also considered the ceramic covered crock at Dr. Foster's. The smallest one.
