Celery?


Zebra

Recommended Posts

I've read that budgies can eat celery, but we have more kinds of celery here. Is this the one budgies can eat?

That's the one I feed to my birds. They love the leaves too

Thanks a lot Lin - I'm going to try if they eat it :P They sell it like this with no leaves, I'll try to grow it in summer maybe.

Ask them if you can have some leaves - they should have them out the back, and will probably give you some of the top half of the celery

I'll try to find smaller shop, they should be nicer :) . I've bought this one in a hypermarket and I don't think they do this (but I'll ask anyway)

 

Thanks :P

:D Correct me if I am wrong but isn't celery mostly water? And it would be better to give them dark greens. :D

You're not wrong, celery is mostly water and has about as much nutrition as plain lettuce. Dark colored veggies are better, nutrition-wise, but I wouldn't be adverse to giving celery at first if it gets them interested in trying veggies. :D

I've had to make celery leaves/celery a special treat with my budgies, they absolutely adore it! :D

My budgies all love celery - I've only ever fed them the stalks not the leaves though. Another huge favourite of theirs is fresh corn on the cob - they absolutely love it and eat every single kernel!

my budgies dont like celery they love winter salad though(it is very dark green)and they also love brocoli :)

mine like celery, but wont eat corn off the cobb!! i added the kernals to the grated carrots and shredded lettuce, they love it that way! but my crazy lot wont eat diced apple either. it has to be hanging on a holder!

My budgies like all the "watery" veggies - ice lettuce, cucumber, celery, etc. and don't eat anything what would be better for them. But I'm still trying :D . Hopefully the chicks will start eating it and then maybe their parents will see it's good to eat :D

My budgies see the celery as soon as I come out the back door - at least 40 feet away and they line up on the wire waiting for me to come over & give it to them!
