    New Budgie owner here, asking all of the basic questions - ha! What are your Budgies' favorite foods? So far, Boo Boo has only eaten millet and some seed stick treats, but he's only been home a few days. I offer lots of different types of food.

    Red clover blossoms, in season. The get really loud when I walk in with that. But that is more of a snack, I think.

    Zupreem makes a very tiny fruit pellet (Canary/finch size). Mine will eat a little bit of those. They like Herb Salad, Carrot tops, Romaine lettuce (wet). Mostly what mine eat is a good quality seed mix.

    A leaf of Romaine is devoured every day. Carrot tops are much liked too. I do what we did in school. Cut off the top and grow the greens in a saucer of water. They like fresh seed grasses from outside.

    Kristen! You got a budgie??? I have to go and look in the past posts to find the story, but, congratulations!
    My budgies love leafy greens, especially if they are sopping wet. They will eat them, and roll around and bathe in them if I put them in a shallow dish! LOL They also love broccoli florets wedged between the cage bars, and baby carrots, same way. They love seed, millet, and avicakes, as well as nutriberries. They eat TOPS crumpets, but they arent their favorite. Have fun figuring out what Boo really loves. Cant wait to see a picture of him...gonna go look now!
