Question by Chocolate~breath~mint: halp! my budgie is tres picky…i just bought him a bag of food he won’t eat. >=[ grr…?
I bought him a bag of hagen’s original, the kind that looks bland… do you have any food that your budgie rly likes? the price is not an issue as long it’s not anything much too expensive. he isn’t fond of plain and bland things but he isn’t fond of very loud and colorful food either.
thank u all!!

Is this a new bird? How old is it? Are you certain the bird is fully weaned. Sometimes a young bird will revert back to wanting to be hand fed and if this is the case you need to get it to someone who knows how to do this.
If you have had the bird for a while and it has decided not to eat then it needs to be seen by your vet.
Birds are suspicious of new things and it may take a while for it to accept a new food, for this reason you should never run out of the food it was eating and introduce the new food slowly, put it in a treat dish along side the old food. I would also keep spray millet in the cage, all birds love this and it is very nutritious.
