Budgie Salad Recipe

If you’re mixing a salad for your birds, aim for variety. If something they haven’t previously shown much interest in is coated in something they really like, they’ll probably try it. This is the main benefit of offering a mixed salad rather than separate portions of fruit and veg.

Mix the old and the new in salads to tempt your budgies

Try to offer a wide range of vegetables and fruits, to cover a lot of the nutritional ground. The following mix is a good healthy meal for two birds. Don’t prepare more than you need, as uneaten food will soon spoil and will have to be thrown away.

  • 1 floret of broccoli
  • 1 5cm length of carrot, peeled
  • 1 2cm chunk of cucumber, peeled
  • 1 dessertspoon of cress or mustard sprouts
  • 4 1cm square chunks of red pepper
  • 1 eighth of an apple, peeled and cored
  • 1 segment of orange
  • 1 teaspoon of sprouting alfalfa seeds

Chop the soft top part of the broccoli and discard the stalk. Grate the carrot, and chop the cucumber, apple and orange. Put all the ingredients in a bowl with the sprouting seeds, and mix until everything is coated with everything else.
