To feed as moist crumble:
Mix 10g (1 scoop) of powder with approx. 3mL (½ tsp) of water
Slowly add water to the powder while mixing with a fork to form a moist, crumbly mix.
To feed with soaked seed or vegetables:
Mix 10g (1 scoop) of powder with 20g (2 scoops) diced veg or soaked seed
Foods such as finely chopped greens, grated vegetables or sprouted seed can be used, depending on bird preference. Add a little extra water to moisten the mix if necessary.
Budgie Starter is ideal for weaning young from Hand Rearing Food on to a solid diet. Offer as a moist crumble or veg mix once young are fully-feathered and starting to self-feed.
Conversion to Crumbles
Birds will readily transition from Budgie Starter to Passwell Crumbles by mixing the products together, then gradually increasing the proportion of crumbles.
