I recently got 2 budgies and have been feeding them “all living things parakeet daily diet” but this says too feed them 1-3 tbsp,
Should I feed them 6 teaspoons in the same bowl, if I had 2 separate bowls one is bound to eat out of the other.

Hi! :welcome: to Talk Budgies

It's best to have two separate bowls.
Each budgie should get 1/12 to 2 teaspoons of seed per day. You can ration the seed so they each receive 1 teaspoon in the morning and 1 teaspoon in the evening.

When you upload pictures as attachments directly from your computer, tablet or phone, the forum automatically defaults to landscape. Additionally, the picture appears as what we term a "thumbnail" attachment.

To upload full-sized pictures with the proper orientation, please use a photo-sharing service such as Imgur and follow the steps in these instructions:
How to Post Full Size Pictures from a Photo Sharing Site
You can practice uploading pictures in the site's "Test Forum:

By the way, all photos entered in any of our forum contests must be a full-size photo and not a thumbnail attachment so it's good to know how to upload them! ;)

If you have any questions after reading through everything, please be sure to ask!

Glad you decided to join us and looking forward to seeing you around the forums.

Hi there and :welcome: to the forums!

You've been given great advice. Having two of everything in the cage, including bowls and desirable perches, is a good way to prevent any arguments over them in the future :thumbup:

Meanwhile, you've been given great resources above by FaeryBee. Be sure to read through everything provided to ensure you're up to date on everything relating to the best practices for budgie care! If you have any questions, feel free to ask as we'd love to help.

Best wishes with your budgies! We'd love to meet them :photo: when you get a chance ;)

Cheers :wave:
