The tangle grass belongs to the sweet grasses and is very popular with budgies.
The common meadow grass or its seed stand is also known as cocksfoot grass among budgerigar keepers.
If the seed stalks are still halfway closed, they can eat them straight away. Open seed heads, on the other hand, can be shaken out over a linen bag in which the seeds can dry out well for later.
Not only the seed heads of cocksfoot are very popular with budgies, but they also like the grass, i.e. the leaves themselves.
However, they often don’t eat it, but suck it, which they like to take their time with and are busy for a while and keep their mouths shut.
