Hello everyone , I got four budgies ( green , lutino , sky blue , albino ) , the thing is that that sky blue girl craves seeds and millet also the other three too ( but not as much as her ) , so what do I have to do to make them try new foods , more healthy ones because I guess that "chubby" is too fat to fly around like the other three so , Advices ?
The best thing you can do is limit the amount of seed they get and offer them healthy treats as well.
A budgie only needs one to one and a half teaspoons of seed. They will eat more than that as most animals have that wild streak where they will get what they can, when it available.
Feed them a limited amount of seed in the morning. Once they have eaten, removed the seed and put in some pellets for them, which are healthy for budgies to eat. I would also add some leafy green veg and keep trying different safe veg for them.
Give them some more seed again before bed- make sure they don't go hungry with cutting their food down- do it gradually.
Just keep persisting with healthy veg.
If you try fruit, only give it to them once a week.
As for millet- I only give millet spray as a treat once every couple of weeks. And one spray does 8 birds.
You've been given great advice with regards to your budgies!
