After going vegan I was surprised by how hard it was to find vegan food for budgies. Like obviously meal worms people feed to budgies for some... ridiculous reason won't be vegan, but it just amazed me that bagged bird food wasn't when nearly every site online calls budgies herbivores. There are brands out there that don't have D3, but my local petstores don't carry them so I make my own seed. It just has oats and millet and I give them plenty of fresh veggies and fruit.
The blocks that grind down their teeth, cuttlebone, are actual bones. The brand Kaytee usually sells vegan mineral blocks that do the trick, but if your local petstores have stopped carrying them (like mine have) another option is to buy lava blocks. They sell them for chinchillas to grind their teeth down on and my budgies happily eat them. They're about the same hardness as cuttlebones.
I still need to name this budgie who will be the second character in my little comic series. I'm thinking of a plant name like Foxglove or Periwinkle. You can comment with suggestions if you like. c:
