I sometimes use grit. There is a huge controversy oveer this
topic. I say go head for it. My budgies dont eat too much of
it.. just enough of it. And I only feed it a few times a
week (usualy every other day) But only feed grit if you feed
your brids other goodies that you are suppose to feed them
like greens, bread, egg food... stuf like that. In the wild
parrots will eat mud and stuff because they eat a lot of
fruits and things that are harder to digest. Like greens can
be a little bit hard to digest so its ok to feed a bit of
grit. I've never had a problem with it almost 5 yrs of
having my budgies.
