Lightbulb homemade seed muffins

crack one egg into a bowl but discard of the yolk in a separate bowl


add your ingredients :P
this can be all sorts, try adding cuttlefish/iodine/mineral block dust for them picky birds
i used,
- oyster shell grit
- seed
- canary seed
- groats
- monkey nuts


then add a dollop of honey

mix mix mixxxxx



spoon into silicone muffin cases


and then bake on a low heat untill they go hard (this can take a while!)


remove and allow to cool
you can even add some cooking string so you can hang them in the cage when ready to eat (don't forget to trim for safety)

YUM YUMMY

Great recipe, thanks!

My only concern is the silicon muffin trays - if I remember right, Silicon cookware emits a toxic chemical when heated, same as teflon? I'll have to look into it, unless someone here knows!

ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh lordyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy right
use paper ones!!!!!!

i was advised to use it as it avoids adding oils or using non stick cookery
maybe it's why your meant to have it on a low heat so it deosn't overheat
hmmm
think i'll be keeping the windows open a little longer :P

Why leave out the yolks?

This is the most FANTASTIC idea I have seen!
Great job spicky And thanks again. I will DEFINATLY be trying
this one out. I was always told birds couldn't eat wet seeds..
btu I guess after mixing then heating everything dries out


Signature to come

Teegzy, sometimes I soak seed over night then feed in the morning. They like it!

Soaked seeds are healthier than normal seeds as the seed has started the sprouting process and used up some of its fat reserves.
