This is a healthy mix of veggies that budgies will readily eat after the introduction period. It is my adaptation of an avian vet's diet that was recomended to me many years ago. This is a low moisture recipe that does not quickly spoil.
3 cups cooked brown rice (1 cup dry + 2 cups water according to directions)
1 lb frozen corn nibblets
1 lb frozen small peas
(optional) 1 lb small bird pellets.
Recommend chilling rice before mixing with veggies to keep kernels separated. Keep veggies frozen. Store in ziploc bags. This makes enough to feed one budgie for several months.
Thaw before serving. Add finely diced carrots and broccoli florets. If your birds haven't eaten peas before, squash a few the first few times - then they get the idea. Not only is this healthy, but it looks mah-ve-lous.
