Question by sweetestbudgie: How do I get my young budgie to eat budgie starter?
I have a budgie that’s just over 6 weeks old. A few days before I got him I went to Pets World to get some budgie pellets but they didn’t have any in stock so I bought budgie starter. He eats seed, honey stick and dandilian thistles. I’ve tryed to give him budgie starter, apple and grape. I put a piece of corn in his cage but I don’t know if he ate it. Help! I’m going to put him on a pellet diet when he’s older. But of couse lots of fruit and vegies as well.

My bird didnt like the pellet food that I got him either, but he would eat treats and fruits when he was little. I found out that if I put a bowl of water(he was drinking out of one of those water bottles for small animals) he would put his food in it to soften it up a little before he ate it. Are the budgie pellets the hard kind? Is his food right next to his water? If it is and he still is not eating the pellets. I would suggest just putting the pellets in and maybe no honey sticks or treats. Just for a little while so that he can get used to the taste of the pellets. Birds can be very picky sometimes and wont give food a chance, but since small birds have such high metabolisms they will get hungry very fast. I hope this helped you out.:-)
