Celery is non-toxic and can be fed to budgies, but it should be given sparingly because it is mostly water and contains few vitamins and minerals. Budgies avoid foods high in calories, vitamins, and minerals because celery has so much water and can cause diarrhea. Budgies should get 20% of their diet from fruits and vegetables.
Avoid giving your budgie celery leaves or seeds and feed them only the stalks. De-leaf the celery and rinse the sticks to remove any pesticides from the farms. Organic produce is a great way to reduce pesticides but is not always pesticide-free. Celery is too low in calories to feed a budgie daily. Avoid feeding your budgie celery all day and give them a balanced diet.
Budgies need a diet low in fat and sodium and high in vitamins, minerals, and fiber. Budgies can eat a variety of fruits and vegetables, including apples, oranges, bananas, grapes, coconut, pineapple, mango, asparagus, rhubarb, kohlrabi, sweet potatoes, carrots, yams, potatoes, ginger, parsnips, and rutabagas. Budgies need these fruits and vegetables for vitamins, minerals, and fiber. The fibrous content also trims the budgie’s beak.
Not all fruits and veggies are safe for budgies. Before feeding your budgie, check the list of safe fruits and vegetables. Before giving your budgie fruits and vegetables, wash them and remove pesticides.
I have learned a lot about my budgies’ diets. I give them a varied, balanced diet. I give them celery occasionally, but I remove the leaves. I wash celery thoroughly to remove pesticides. Celery is a favorite of my budgies, but I do not feed it to them. My budgies are happy and healthy because I feed them a balanced diet.
