Default Egg Food Recipe + How Long to Store

I've tried a few times previously to get Biz to eat eggs. Whites only. Yolks only . Both. Fresh, but cooled down to room temperature. He wasn't interested. Especially yolks, he seems to hate mushy textures in general.

He loves kale and goes nuts any time I approach the cage with anything green, so I put an organic egg with kale in the blender. I then cooked the mix (in a non teflon pan)... I kind of poached it so it wouldn't be too try.

Then, I sprinkled ground seed on it and mixed that (the seed was powderized with a coffee grinder)... and then I put a little bit of unhulled millet in the egg food.

He ate plenty of it, and not just the seeds.

I've read on the forums that people leave their fresh egg food in the fridge for about 3 days. I'm wondering if that would still work for my egg food given the ingredients.

Tomorrow I'm going to sprinkle some ground flax seeds in the egg food. (He won't eat flax seeds whole. So far he has rejected those.)

Thanks for your feedback. . .

I'm sure the new egg food recipe you've created will keep just fine in the refrigerator for three days.

You can also put it into ice cube trays and freeze it.
Then just take one cube out, defrost and ensure it is room temperature before serving it.

Biz is certainly going to remain a healthy, happy fellow with all the good foods he's enjoying!

That's great... thanks for the feedback & the tip! I'll give it a try.

How often should he get the egg food since he's doing his 6-7 month molt? How often, when he's not molting? ... This has been my first success getting him to eat eggs, so I've not put it in the diet previously, but I will now.

Thank-you for the diet feedback. He has been backsliding on the pellets (we'll keep working on that) ... but otherwise I can't complain in that he doesn't wrestle me on the greens. ( and not on the eggs anymore.

When Biz is molting you can give him the egg food every other day. The egg food helps promote nice feather growth.
Keep in mind the high protein foods also are used when bringing budgies into condition so with Biz reaching puberty you may find him becoming a little more rambunctious.

When he is not molting, it is best to limit the egg food to no more than once or twice a week. Too much protein can be hard on our little one's kidneys.

Great... thanks for the advice. The egg food is a huge hit so I'm really happy about that. He seems to really dig into it, which is great because like most budgies he can be a bit of a picky eater.

I'll keep an eye out for his "rambunctious" behavior. So far he hasn't tried to "mate" with any toys... which is surprising because I've seen a lot of male birds online go that route. I met a woman who's male budgie was showing signs of that and she said she was going to get a female to, um, address his "frustration." I asked if she wanted babies. No. But that was the first solution she considered when she saw her little guy exhibiting desires to have a lady friend. I explained that there are lots of ins and outs in having a male and a female ... and I sent her here to the forums.

Thanks again... !

It's unfortunate so many people seem to think the easy answer when a bird exhibits mating tendencies is to simply give them a "mate" and let them do their thing.

I'm so glad you helped the individual realize that isn't the best solution and indeed simply presents additional challenges.
Thank for directing her to the forum as well.
Hopefully, she'll join us and be able to learn some of the best practices for caring for her little budgie.

I tried this ice cube trick and it works like a champ! Thanks for the advice. I love this. I make on the weekend and freeze for use through the week.

I've frozen cooked veggies before but would never have thought to do so with eggs.
I'll definitely be doing this too! Thanks
