Product information


Avia sanded sheets are made from the finest natural minerals including oyster shells, which contribute to the calcium and minerals that he needs, whilst the action of walking and foraging on the sand can help to wear down his claws and beak - naturally.

The Right Diet
In the wild, a budgie's diet is exclusively made up of seed. Make sure that you give him the best possible seed mixture you can buy, such as Avia Budgie Food. Avia Budgie Food with golden grains, provides a healthy and balanced diet of mixed seed fortified with extra nutrients suitable for budgerigars and other cage birds.
By a process unique to Bob Martin, a carefully balanced proportion of seeds in Avia Budgie Food is super-enriched with six extra nutrients. The six extra nutrients are impregnated through the husk and into the actual kernel of the seeds. It is vital that you choose a seed that has nutrients right through to the kernel as a budgie will de-husk seed in a characteristic manner and eat only the kernel.
Make sure that the seed is available continually. Your bird will know how much he needs. Change his drinking water every day. Try an Avia Healthy Treat or Millet Spray for variety in his diet. The Avia Healthy Treats contain added grit, an essential part of a budgie's diet to help his digestion.

A good quality Canary mixture, such as Avia Canary Food with golden grains, will meet all your bird's nutritional needs. Make sure that seed is available continually. Your bird will know how much he needs. Change his drinking water every day. Offer him an Avia Healthy Treat as a delicious and nutritious snack.

Preparation and Usage:

Avia comes in sheet sizes that are designed to fit the best selling cages of all major cage manufacturers.

Simply measure the inside of the tray of your bird cage and then check its measurements against the size shown below.

Once you have found the correct size for your cage all you have to do is remember the colour of the pack whenever you are shopping for sanded sheets.

How to use Avia Sanded Sheets
Avia is the ideal way to make sure that your bird cage remains hygienic and is easy to clean.
Just place the correct size of Avia sanded sheet in the tray at the bottom of your bird's cage. It is recommended that the Avia sheet is replaced with a fresh sheet twice a week to help protect your bird from infection and to keep the cage hygienic.

General Welfare
Fluctuations of room temperature should be avoided whenever possible. Covering the bird cage at night will help prevent a sudden drop in temperature.
A regular routine of feeding and cleaning should be carried out by the same person with the same frequency whenever possible. In addition try to avoid excessive noise and continually rearranging his cage, as this may lead to loss of appetite and general depression.
It is important to make sure that the seed husks left behind in the seed pot do not prevent the bird's access to the seed. The husk should be blown away and the seed pot topped up with fresh seed daily. It is recommended that the seed pot be refilled with new seed at least twice a week to avoid contaminated seed collecting in the pot.
Birds need grit for proper digestive functioning - they simply cannot digest seed without it. Bird Grit also contains calcium to provide a valuable source of this mineral for your bird. Cuttlefish bone may be given as an additional sources of calcium. Budgies should be given a variety of toys to prevent boredom.
