parakeets
I have 2 Barraband parakeets (superb parrots) Just looking for advice on what to feed them. They get versele laga prestige seed mix, harrisons pellets (they don't always eat alot of these) tidymix parakeet mix (also don't eat alot of these and struggle with the bigger seeds, nuts etc) Recently started giving sprout mix occasionally, which includes - Mung Beans, Adzuki beans, Chickpeas, Beluga Lentils, Green Lentils or I will soak their seed mix overnight just to make them a little softer. They also get quinoa, kale, broccoli, mint, coriander, dill and occasionally will eat carrots...this is all the veg that they will eat.
Not really sure what can be fed daily or what should only be given as a treat..?? Since giving them sprouts for the first time, they aren't really interested in their dry seed. What can I sprout to feed every morning for them..?? Does everything just need soaked for 8 hours..?? How many days of rinsing until I can start to feed the sprouts..?? What dry seed mix could I try that they might prefer..??

I think you can also try sprouting their seed if it isn’t heat-treated to sterilize it.

These are gorgeous little parrots!
