I may have asked this before but I would like to offer some treats to my budgies, as well as their seed the currently have; Broccoli, carrot occassional piece of apple/orange.
But what other vegies are safe for them? Is is safe to offer a piece of fruit/veg each day or should I only offer it on alternate days so they don't get the squits? I am in the UK so any non local vegies/plants are unlikely to be possible here.
Pomegranate(spelling!) when you can get hold of them billie I feed the small mix frozen veg, when i run out of fresh.(peas, carrots, and sweetcorn.) You can buy fruit cocktail, or tangerines, in grape juice, which has a long shelf life. The indoor birds, get something everyday, the avairy birds, always have an apple or two on the go, my little Kak, Sugar, cannot go without her apples ;D
To be honest, i find it just as cheap to buy a ready fresh fruit cocktail sometimes, it lasts about 3 days.
The avairy birds ike purple sprouting, but when i have not weeded, a huge milk thistle soon gets eaten. All the budgies love dandilion leaves. They like grapes, but you need to chop them up quite small.Baby sweetcorn, or a whole corn.
dont worry about the squits, it comes and goes somedays, depending whats been fed.
