Have you ever heard of the concept "Monkey See, Monkey Do"? Budgies are more to likely eat fresh veggies & fruits, if they see another bird eating these fresh foods! Case in point: We adopted 2 budgies from a rescue that basically viewed all fresh foods as alien. It wasn't until our cockatiel, Poindexter, started eating them that they became curious. One little taste led to another, with the budgies becoming over time, more willing to dine on fresh fruits & veggies than their seeds! However, it is very important that they get their protein resource from pellets, seeds &/or avi cakes (a softer combination compound of seeds, pellets & vitamans). Cuttlebones, fine ground Oyster Shells & Mineral Blocks will also provide the much needed calcium & additional minerals your bird. Your birds will use as needed.

Thank you. I’ve been needing these lists for a while now, my budgies are scared of new food for a while but curiosity gets them. I read that avocado is poisonous to them.
