A Protein Rich day

The birds are having their egg food today, they are all moulting and need extra protein for their new feathers to be formed and it helps this happen.  Besides, they do love it.

UPDATE: I realised that I neglected to mention that you should remove any uneaten egg food after 2 hours as it will spoil and go bad.  Also give the area it was in a bit of a clean too as budgies do tend to make a mess (or is that just mine?)

I feed this to them a couple of times a month for two days at a time.

A Previous Egg-fest

egg 11-5-10


  • Boil an egg, when boiled simmer for 30 minutes to make sure any salmonella is killed – you do not want your birds getting ill with this, you might survive it, they may not.
  • Peel and grate the egg when cooled ( I usually cool it in water as I am impatient!)
  • Grate some of your birds favourite vegetables (always raw and fresh), I usually use carrot, broccoli and sweetcorn.
  • Divide mixture into two days portions, placing half of the servings in the fridge for tomorrow. It’s best to use it quickly, but it’ll stay fresh for up to two days in the fridge.
  • Serve, yum yum! 🙂
