Healthy Birdie Bread Recipe from BirdTricks

Posted by Jamieleigh on

Patty demonstrates how to make home made birdie bread for your parrot (of any size!) and how to progress in your birdie bread to encourage your bird to eventually consume raw veggies.

Here is the video’s recipe:
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup oats
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup granola
1 tablespoon of grated cuttle bone/mineral block

Mix dry ingredients in one bowl. In a separate bowl mix wet ingredients:

Beat together 2 eggs
1/2 non-dairy milk
1/4 cup applesauce

Add to dry mixture. Mix/combine.

Add 1 mashed banana.

Avoid adding wet veggies!

We added 1/2 cup fresh peas and cut green beans, and a 1/2 cup of finely chopped kale (use a food processor to make this good and tiny!)

Cook at 375 degrees for 28-32 minutes. Let cool to room temperature in the center of your bread before feeding to your bird.

For more birdie bread recipes, as well as non-birdie bread recipes that will help get your bird eating healthy, we highly recommend our Natural Feeding Cookbooks.

Also, here is a link to the natural pellets we use.
