Lightbulb Yummy parrot dinner

Here's a little something all of my birds enjoy!

Here's what I used, I'm sure if you don't have the EXACT ones you can find something very similar:

Peppers


Egg


Grapes


Diced, chewy fruit


Dried fruit


Craisins


Pink grapefruit


Pellets


A good seed mix


Hemp seeds


Lentils


Whole grain rice


Herb of your choice (no picture, sorry!)

Here's how I made it!

Bring your water to boiling


Add in the rice (cook this for about 25 minutes)


After five minutes, add the lentils (mix these in)


While this is cooking, prepare your food


Empty the rice and lentils into a sieve


Rinse thoroughly with cold water


Cook your egg while the rice cools down (no picture, sorry!)

Add in your fruit and rip up the peppers on top of it all


Add herbs (yes I'm in my pajamas)


and hemp seeds (sorry for the bad picture)


Your pellets and seed mix


Crush the egg and shell


Add everything together, put a lid onto the box and SHAKE!! (I know there is some brocolli and carrot in there as of now, blame my grandmother. She was cooking and wanted to share)


Serve in bowls!


Enjoy!!!

No problem if my birds enjoy it, and it's super healthy, then I think everybody should try it

That looks great! My tiel won't eat anything other than seed I keep trying though! Maybe she'll like this.

I do have one question though! What brand name dried fruits are good for birds? I went to the store to buy some but when I looked at the label, there was stuff in there I wouldn't even attempt to say! Does anyone know of organic and healthy dried fruit I can get for my bird? Something I could eat as well. She seems to be interested in anything I'm eating.

I don't know any brand but go to an organic store perhaps? That's where mine are from. I also use Craisins, they're like chewy cranberries. They're awesome! Seed is soooo bad for birds if that is all they eat. I mean it's bad anyways, but I'm not converting all of my birds. Just the indoor birds! They thrive just as well on smaller portions of seeds with fresh fruit and veg, herbs etc etc I'm sure you can get her eating fruit and veg no problem. It might take some time, but she'll come around. I know somebody posted a cockatiel feeding thing on here recently telling you different ways of giving her food all my outdoor birds eat their high quality seeds, nuts etc mixes with fresh fruit and veg daily. At first they wouldn't touch it but the presentation is the key

I seriously don't think I've seen one organic food store in my area. I live an hour out from civilization and the only town I go to doesn't have many options. Maybe I'll try buying stuff online, even though I hate doing that.

Hmm I never thought about that! Would I need a dehydrator? I registered for one for my wedding so I don't want to go buy one!
