Budgies can eat yogurt, but only in small quantities. Budgies can benefit from yogurt’s calcium, protein, and probiotics. Calcium, protein, and probiotics are needed for strong bones, feathers, and digestion. However, budgies do not benefit from yogurt and may get an upset stomach. Depending on the season, wild budgies eat seeds, fruits, berries, and vegetation.
Due to lactose, budgies can only eat yogurt in small amounts. Budgies should be fed yogurt in moderation to avoid stomach upset, diarrhea, and other digestive issues. Budgies do not need yogurt because it is not part of their natural diet.
To give your budgie a balanced diet, offer a variety of foods. This includes grains, seeds, vegetables, and fruits. Papaya, pomegranate, mangoes, passion fruit, and guavas are safe for budgies to eat. Apples, cherries, and pears are toxic to budgies, so remove the seeds.
Budgies can eat all parts of a banana, including the peel and leaves. Dried bananas are fine for them. Budgies can eat cucumber occasionally, but the seeds should be removed.
To conclude, budgies can eat yogurt as a treat. Fruits, vegetables, seeds, and grains are essential to their diet. Before making any major diet changes, consult a veterinarian or avian expert.
I feed my two budgies fruits and vegetables along with their seed mix. I decided to feed them a small amount of plain yogurt to try something new. They loved it and kept coming back. I reduced their yogurt intake because they had loose stools. I also gave them plenty of water to stay hydrated. As a budgie owner, you must monitor their diet to ensure they get the nutrients they need to stay healthy and happy.
