    I have been attempting to transition my budgie to Zupreem pellets (parakeet size), i’ve got the fruitblend in hopes he’ll pick the yellow ones since they look like seeds. When I hand them to him (in it’s full form) he drops it quickly. I’ve been layering the pellets on top of his Zupreem seed...

    Recently my 5-year-old budgie changed his eating style. He no longer eats with no stopping until he is full at his food container. He goes down, grabs a seed, then goes up and constantly chews on it. Then again he goes down and so on. Should I worry ?
