Question by Ben: Why do my budgies keep throwing the food dish?
I have 3 food dishes that are hooked to the cage wall and my budgies keep throwing it off the wall. I’ve tried putting more food in, just in case they wanted more (because my budgies lift the dishes then drop them banging the cage to get my attention for when they want or are out of food). This didn’t work. They keep throwing it off the cage wall and today I came home and not only was the one off the wall, but there was another one half-way off the wall hanging on 1 hook.

There are 2 reasons they may be doing. One being they don’t like the food. The other being they are just trying to get a rise out of your, which most birds LOVE. My bird sometimes knocks things downs just to get me to pick it up.
You can try putting more sturdy bowls instead of flimsy hooked bowls. I’m talking about the stainless steal ones that screw into the cage.
