seed treats

before i was making seed treats with seed, and egg, and a little bit of honey. i would bake them, but sometimes i would over bake them. i didn't really care for them and wanted to find something different.

today i had an idea i blended together raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, banana and apply until it was smooth. i added a little to some seeds and then i put it in my dehydrator. the stuck together nicely like a regular seed block, though i should have added a little less seed or added a little bit more of the puree. still, they came out good and Cheerio liked them. i also made a small "fruit roll up" out of the puree and was going to let the birds try it tomorrow.

i will also give them a dehydrated apple to try since today some of them (including little special Bowie) tried and ate a fresh apple. i want to try making a veggie puree with seeds.

here are some pics the seeds are just discolored from the puree


cheerio enjoying it (she is such a pig-in a good way!)


"all of these blocks for me?"

That's awesome, those looks yummy! They remind me of some crackers you can buy in the grocery store that look like that :P Spoiled birds! ^_^

I will definitely change the ratio so there is more to hold it together, the next day they were falling apart
