Default Your budgies favorite food?

Star's favorite food is apples. If you don't give them to her at least once each day she make angry budgie sounds. She has quite the love obsession

My budgie loves white bread ! I only offer her whole wheat bread now though, since it is better for her.

My budgies all like different things.
Cassy loves strawberries, Sylvester enjoys apples and Finn loves chickweed like crazy.
And all my birds love sprouted seeds.

Bread of any kind isn't good for birds because of the salt. Salt injures the kindneys so I wouldn't feed it at all. (Like any other of our food)

Default picky budgies

I can't get my budgies to eat anything other than their seeds and millet treats. I have tried parsley, apples,celery,broccoli, romaine lettuce leafs, Anyone have any ideas what I should try next? I really want my budgies to be healthy too.

Thanks for the tip.

I have rarely given her bread, and will take that advice.

I've tried fruits and veggies. She'll take a taste and then turn away and run. I'm going to try some alfalfa sprouts next. Maybe she'll go for it, and since they are sprouts, I am thinking they should without a doubt be pesticide free. I rarely see organic stuff in the place I usually buy groceries.

Mine love red lettuce, basil, and corn (in any form *L*). But if you want to see them turn up their beaks, all I have to do is put a piece of broccoli in the cage. Yay for them being unique *L*

Corn really seems to be their favorite although they now almost like brown rice as much. They like brocolli (stems only), egg food, peas, greenbeans (cut small).
Don't like carrots or any fruit...but I am still trying with those.
