I have two cockatiels, they are quite young and still very fussy, however this is one product they cannot get enough of! however this product is better of used as a treat, to much can cause obesity, a fat bird is no good!! The honey treat is baked on a wooden stick, so it is long lasting. These treats are usually found at local pet stores in packs of two for about £2. These treats have a vitamin and mineral enriched biscuit type batter mixed with the highest quality ingredients of fruits, seeds, and vegetables available. i would not feed this to your bird all the time, not only cockatiels eat this, parrots, budgies and parakeets like it to. it has a clip on the top so you can clip it tidly into the cage or aviary, i have mine hanging outside the cage so they can explore the outside of there cage a little bit more without being to timid.
My budgie is very fussy. I've never known an animal like it, as any other pet I've had eats anything!
I feed my budgie bird seed and millet, as anything I've ever tried, apples, grapes, carrots, biscuits, etc, to give as a treat just doesn't work. She won't even go near it!
I discovered these in my local pet store and thought I'd try them out as they aren't expensive and I'd love to be able to find something sweet to give to my budgie as a treat, and I was pleasantly surprised when she ate it all in one go! Despite the packet saying they are for cockatiels, it if perfectly fine for budgies to eat too.
These treats come in the form of a stick, which has a plastic green hoop attached to the end so it can be threaded easily onto the bars of the cage. It is easier for the budgie to eat off if you put it near one of his perches so he can sit on it whilst eating.
It Pets at Home, they cost me £2.19, in Seapets they cost me £1.89, but I've found that independant pet shops are surprisingly cheapest, at about £1.50. They also seem to have a lot more choice of flavours. There's a kiwi one too that my budgie loves.
I find that when I put these in the cage, they do get eaten really quickly, so it's better if you put one in once a week, or maybe twice a week, as they are meant to be only eaten as treats.
They are also healthy though, containing important vitamins and minerals, so, even though it's a treat, I like that it's still good for her and that I'm not feeding her junk!
Vitakraft I have used these bird sticks for my birds for nearly twenty years.With a few exceptions they have always been good quality and will give your bird hours of pleasure. The honey stick is basically seed stuck to a wooden stick with honey glue. All of the seed and even the wood centre will benefit your bird. They start off with small sizes for budgies,canaries and finches. There are a few flavours,orange,banana,honey,egg and others. They are also making larger sizes for parakeets and parrots.Again they are made in different fruit and nut flavours.
