Passwell Budgie Starter is a nutritionally balanced, high protein conditioning food for budgies.
Budgie starter is an excellent soft food for other small parrots such as Neophemas, Bourkes, Red-rumps, Hooded & Mulga Parrots. Larger parrots may benefit from using Passwell Parrot Soft Food.
Budgie Starter is ideal to be used as a weaning food for hand-reared budgies when transitioning from Passwell Hand Rearing Food to a solid diet. Older birds will also readily transition from Budgie Starter to Passwell Crumbles by mixing the two products together, and then gradually increasing the proportion of Crumbles.
Mix 20g of Budgie Starter (2 level tablespoons) with 5ml (1 teaspoon) of warm water. Slowly add the water to the powder while mixing to form a moist crumbly mix (as per the consistency shown above). Do not make into a paste.
To feed with soaked seed or vegetables:
Mix 10g (1 level tablespoon) of Budgie Starter with 20g (2 heaped tablespoons) of soaked/sprouted seed or finely chopped/grated vegetables.
Prepare food fresh each day. We do not advise storing food in the fridge overnight as it can become contaminated with micro-organisms.
