| In the budgie's daily diet dextrose doesn't play an important role, but for strengthening sick birds it is an outstanding supplement. Also birds who are heavily molting are in need of concentrated food supplements. |
The best way to serve dextrose is to dissolve it in the budgies drinking water. Take a half teaspoon for about 100 ml water. Please don't forget to clean the water dish at least once a day, since dextrose leaves a sticky layer on the surface of the dish. This layer is a perfect medium for pathogenic germs!
If you take care of a little flock of budgies or a couple, you can add dextrose to the drinking water even though only one bird really needs it. This sort of sugar won't harm the healthy birds, but of course it could lead to overweight if served for more than only a few days.
