Budgie Starter is ideal to be used as a weaning food for hand-reared budgies when transitioning from Passwell Hand Rearing Food to a solid diet. Older birds will also readily transition from Budgie Starter to Passwell Crumbles by mixing the two products together, and then gradually increasing the proportion of Crumbles.
