Parakeet and Budgie Food, Water and Recipes

The native parakeet grew up in the grasslands of Australia, living in eucalyptus trees. Those grasslands provided the parakeets what they needed to live. They would eat the fresh greens, the fruits and berries they found there, and the seeds that came in the fall.

Below are links to help you feed your parakeet in a more healthy manner. Be sure to read them all! Remember, your parakeet doesn't have the luxury of choosing what they want to eat from the supermarket shelves or out of cupboards. The ONLY food they can eat is what you put into their cage. If you don't put enough of a given nutrient, your parakeet will be malnourished. They have no choice.

On my monitor resolution that penny is just about life sized, so the seeds are life sized. If your photo shows up too large, it's time to adjust your Control Panel > Display settings :)
