are many plants in Central Europe that produce seeds which are edible for
pet birds such as budgies. One of these plants is the well known
evening primrose or Oenothera biennis. Shortly
after the flowering season the tiny dark brown seeds develop. Some retailers
who offer food for parrots sell these seeds which are fairly expensive. It
is also possible to look for the seeds outside in nature. Many small pet
birds, including budgies, like the taste of these seeds once they have
become used to it.
