Coconut Craziness

Did you know that the first domesticated budgie laid her eggs inside a coconut?

That's why people in the 19th century gave coconuts to their budgies! You can still find coconut nests at some pet stores today, although a lot of people prefer to stick with wooden nesting boxes.

If you like coconuts, you can also give your budgies a coconut bowl, filled with a blend of fresh pieces of fruit, vegetables and millet!


  1. Cool!
    So budgies can eat coconut?


    Merry Christmas

  2. Yup, coconut is fine! You'll find coconut pieces in some seed mixes, but fresh is still best :)

    Merry X-mas to you too!
