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.
