Parakeets are easy to feed, with a diet based on a fortified seed mix. A few sprigs and sticks of fresh food, some sprouting seeds, and a mineral block completes the menu.
Parakeets love their food!
Parakeets will eat what they are given - but that doesn't mean they won't overindulge on certain things. Millet is a favorite, but is also very fatty; and many parakeets love grapes, but in excess these contain far too much sugar. The favorite food will depend on the tastebuds of the individual bird. So, the takeaway message is simple - make the seed mix the basis of the diet, and go easy on the treats.
