Budgerigars are vulnerable to obesity, iodine deficiencies, and other nutrition-related issues. A well-balanced and varied diet must always be maintained for our birds to stay healthy.
Wild budgies eat a great variety of seed types as different plants come into season. Available seed mixes generally contain from 2 – 8 different kinds of seeds. However, they tend to be high in fat and carbohydrates, low in protein and lacking essential vitamins and minerals and so supplementation is essential.
