I've not seen Saffy using the cuttlebone or mineral block I've put in there. She's been with me just over two weeks now, of course I may have just not seen. But I've seen her eating and such so I'm assuming she just isn't using them.

I've been looking up alternatives to help her get the things she needs, but is there anyway to encourage her to use them?

TIA

Hi Daisy,

There is no cause for concern in this case. When Saffy's body demands the minerals and calcium, she will make use of the mineral block and the cuttlefish bone. She knows what these are for and will ingest when she feels the need to do so. :)

Daisy, Aluz has given great advice!

Another thing is that it is sometimes as long as several months before a budgie feels the need to ingest some cuttlebone or mineral block! So don't worry if she doesn't touch it at all for right now. She will have some eventually :thumbsup:

Jay didn't touch them for a long time then suddenly started to get stuck in.

like Aluz said they know what they are and will use then when they are ready.
