Can budgerigars eat pancakes?

Yes, they can! You just have to modify the recipe a little, to make it more healthy for your feathered friends.

Here's what you need:

chopped apples and/or berries
small pancake mix
3/4 cup (6 ounces) organic oat, almond or hazelnut milk (this can be found in any health food store or in your grocery store)
2 eggs
crushed pellets and/or petamine
budgie seeds
olive oil

Make a nice pancake batter with the fruit pieces and seeds. Use milk and eggs to mix it together. Fry mini pancakes with a little bit of olive oil and let them cool down a little. Only give small servings to your budgies, don't make them used to it or they'll never want to eat seeds again :) you can save the leftovers (freeze them in single servings) and heat them up again later. Enjoy!


  1. Love the photo, love the recipe! It's too bad you can't make the same pancakes for budgies AND people, though :P

    So when are you making this?

  2. In our next appartment, hopefully ;)<3
