Budgie Kabob Posted on May 22, 2013 by Michelle M. After reading about Susan’s kabob for her little Ellie, I had to go to the pet store and get one for the flock. I loaded it up with Granny Smith apple, banana and carrot. I added some lettuce to entice the budgies. But the budgies kept their distance. Except for Ozzie, who is crazy about lettuce. Peek-a-boo!
