How much bird seed should a parakeet eat?

You should fill your parakeet's feeder at least once a day, and ideally anytime that you see it empty. Don't worry, your parakeet will not overeat. For an adult parakeet, on average, this works out to about 2-4 teaspoons of bird seed per day (about 1/2 an ounce or 14 grams per day) and about 1 pound of bird seed per month.
