With so many different foods available for your Budgie, it can be hard to know where to start. To give you a helping hand we've put together this useful feeding guide.
A Budgie’s diet should be approximately 60-80% pellets/complete food, and then the remainder a mixture of fruits, nuts, seed, sprouting seed, treats, vegetables and other treats.
