Cook For Your Budgie!
Treat Recipes

Once you are comfortable that your budgie is getting a healthy diet you can begin having fun trying out some recipes. You can share your favourite home-made treats with us. Or take a look at what other budgie keepers have suggested at the bottom of this page. Please remember that these have been added by various people and they may not be suitable for every budgie.  Take care to void fatty foods if your budgie is overweight, for instance.


There are a few foods it is best to avoid when making treats for your bird:

  • all foods considered junk food, including chocolate
  • avocado, good for us but bad for our birds
  • coffee
  • anything with added salt
  • foods high in sugar, some unprocessed sugar in natural forms is okay occasionally
  • dairy products are okay in small amounts but only occasionally as they can't process lactose well.

Remember that highly processed foods are basically dead and provide very little goodness for your bird.  They often have extras added such as preservatives, flavour enhancers, colours etc that are likely to be harmful to your budgie.
