Budgies are small native Australian parrots with a mainly granivorous (seed) diet. However in the breeding season they supplement their diet with additional protein, vitamins & minerals from fresh, green plant material, mineral grit and even insects. Our budgie foods include nutritionally-balanced Crumbles for everyday nutrition, Budgie Starter for breeding birds and Hand Rearing Food for young budgies. We also make a range of treats and dietary supplements that can enhance the health & well-being of cage and aviary birds.
