Looking for a chop recipe, written down

Hi all. I've been trying to get a chop recipe all night. I wish I had time to tell you all about my 16 birds, 5 geese, 2 cats, 1 horse & 1 donkey. But by the time I registered on here, it is now way too late. G'night.

here is a link to a sticky on the forum with some


my current chop/mash below

and welcome to the forum!

So, i got tired of buying fresh veggies that go bad within a week. i just bought dandelions 2 days ago and they started to wilt already. a whole bundle just doesnt last with 4 small parrots. so, i decided to make a batch of mash to freeze in the freezer and just take out a day's worth at a time.

so i threw in the following:

red leaf lettuce
bok choy
red pepper seeds

i put it all in the food chopper and chopped it all at different sizes since my birds all like different sizes. so everyone is happy with it lol. they all really like it so far, so i'm happy the whole flock appreciates my labour over this dish lol

anyways, i took photos of the whole process.

first i cut off the ends of the stems of all my veggies, removed any browning leaves from the bundles, and washed them all.

this was the dandelion bundle before it was chopped

chopped dandelion

carrot chopped in different sizes, for different preferences

added red pepper seeds

red leaf lettuce about to be chopped

chopped lettuce added to the mash mix

broccoli chopped in different sizes (super fine and chunky)

cilantro about to be chopped

cilantro added to the mash

bok choy about to be chopped

bok choy added to mash

everything all mixed together
