Recipes for the birds

   The ingredients used in this bread are specifically for developing and maintaining healthy, beautiful feathers!

1 box Jiffy corn muffin mix
2 eggs
1 cup cooked brown rice
1/4 cup Calcium added Orange Juice
1/4 cup finely chopped peanuts (you *might* be able to substitute peanut butter... never tried)
1 cup uncooked oats
1 cup finely chopped broccoli (use blender or food processor)
1 cup finely chopped carrots

   Mix corn muffin mix and eggs together until blended. Add in orange juice and rice. Mix well. Add in remaining ingredients. Spread in greased 8x8 pan. I use Olive Oil. Cook in 400 degree oven for 22 minutes. Cut into small cubes. Freeze.

2 cups Bisquick
1/3 cup skim milk
1 egg with shell (throw it in a blender)
1/2 cup carrots, either grated, finely diced, or both
1/4 cup pellets
1 cup cooked brown rice

   Mix Bisquick, milk, and egg together. Add in pellets, then carrots, and finally rice. You can add more or less Bisquick as needed. Dough will be sticky. Drop by teaspoonful onto nonstick baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. Can be frozen for longer term storage and defrosted as needed. Makes about 3 dozen small biscuits.

Cockatiel Seed Mix

   Mix seeds and pellets together. Add honey until clumpy. Make small balls and let sit overnight. You can also add other ingredients to make them more "store like," such as dehydrated banana chips, nuts, etc.

2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons margarine
1/2 cup peanut butter (I use low fat) (chunky or creamy)
1 egg (with or without shell)
3/4 cup flour
1/2 cup quick cooking oats

   Blend egg, softened margarine, flour, and honey together. Then add the peanut butter, then finally the oats. Roll into teaspoon sized balls, then criss-cross fork them, and bake at 350 degrees farenheit for 8 minutes. Makes about 19 small cookies.

Can be frozen for longer term storage and defrosted as needed. Makes about 19 cookies.
