Please enjoy this great budgie feeding hack from the folks at Windy City Parrot


We wanted to serve our budgies vegetables but we were frustrated.


We had success with a couple of lettuce products like serving an entire core of iceberg lettuce.


And we also knew that budgies like to bathe on top of lettuce for whatever reason that is.


We introduced romaine lettuce into their daily bath dishes which they really enjoyed.


So much so that we had to clip the lettuce to the dish, otherwise they would send it to the cage floor 5 feet below in a flash.


We knew the little heathens loved their millet which we had scaled-back over the past few months for nutritional reasons.


It was decided that we would leverage their love with millet by sprinkling it over the chopped fresh (frozen) veggies in their bath dishes.


Lo and behold you can see the results below.
