Yummy eggs!

I decided to share with you guys a super easy recipe I use for my birdies which the majority enjoy. There are different ways of doing it for larger birds, but this is mostly for finches, canaries, budgies, cockatiels, lovebirds, parrotlets and you get the idea! Well, here goes!

1. Get a small pan and fill it with warm water, place on the hob and bring to boiling



2. Place the desired amount of eggs in the pan and boil for roughly 20 minutes minimum. I make sure that the eggs are more than thoroughly cooked through



3. Using a mortar and pestle, crush the egg (including the shell)



until it looks like this



4. add already chopped up fruit and veggies of your choice (I used cucumber here) and mix in



5. add your choice of herbs (herbs do wonders for birds) to the mix. Here I used oregano, thyme and basil. Mix well



All you have to do then is serve! Make sure the mix is cooled a little before you serve. I then store it in a container in the fridge for use over the next few days! My birdies love it, I hope yours do too

I don't know why I thought the 2nd pic was of two yolks. Every time I use eggs I end up eating them all.

thats a great way to get birds to eat veggies if they like eggs i used to do that to introduce new veggies but because i offer pellets, i dont offer eggs because thats way too much protein in a birds diet and it can cause kidney problems with too much protein. best limit protein sources if your bird eats pellets. there is more than enough protein in pellets

I don't have to worry about introducing new stuff since my older birds teach the younger and so on. I gave mine eggs yesterday forgot about the shells though as I crush them up for my chickens.

Thanks everybody!

Kate, I think Bob will like it. Just pop his fave foods in

Casey, my birds aren't on pellets (just the conures, who don't like the current pellets so I'm soon switching to Harrisons) so I try to balance everything out - which is SO hard! They get a huge variety in their diet. I will pop up some more recipies soon

Awh I'm sorry the finches and canaries like it more so than the parrots. Cockatiels love it too, Joey is trying to feed the diamond doves it

Hmm, thanks for the tip and recipe. My feeding uses have been too narrow, it seems. I've been feeding Merlin egg yolk after her beak injury, and she's taken to that -- as has every other envious birdie in here. Seems we can expand on what she's eating as well as everybody else. We'll do that tomorrow.

Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.
And never regret anything that made you smile
