I love birdtricks but save your money. They feed chop, which so many of us do. Keep sugar down, but always less sugar during the winter.

That’s it.

I know right! You could easily just shop somewhere else and get a scale, calibration weights, and a short t-stand for 30 bucks! Talk about over charging!

Thatís it.
I know, but itíd be nice to have all of those recipes in one place, plus a bunch of fun little recipes to make on holidays and stuff

If I buy it from them, then Iím definitely getting the digital version. The physical book set is just so expensive. I guess it has to be, though, considering itís 180+ pages on photo quality paper, plus spiral binding it. It must take a while, and a lot of ink! I looked up how much it would cost to print at staples, and it would be about $110! Plus the $40 do get the files themselves with the digital version.

All I know is that Iím definitely going to buy it, 1. Because it will be nice having all of the recipes in one place without even doing a bunch of research to find them. 2. Because I know itís been approved by multiple avian vets, and I know itís good for my birb. 3. Because all of the recipes are cheap. The Jan-April chop makes A LOT. Itís supposed to feed large birds like macaws and Ďtoos while I only have a little Ďtiel who will only eat 1.5 teaspoons of chop per day (with 1 teaspoon of pellets) but even with the amount of food it makes, it only costs $13 for all of the ingredients... $13 for food thatíll last you 4 months! Thatís almost as good as getting cheap seed from Walmart...

It will save me a lot of money, Lexaís diet right now is $18 for 1.25 lbs of food...

Most of the chop recipes Iíve seen have been pretty expensive, so if you know any inexpensive chop recipes please let me know! I could drop the whole cookbook idea right now!

I agree--I totally get why you are interested because they are highly rated/safe recipes in one spot (as opposed to finding random stuff on the internet).
I like the idea of having the set too even though it is over-priced.

Re: BirdTricks Natural Feeding System wanted

Take a look at Texas Natural Freeze Dried chop. I feed my bird a little over 1.5 dry tablespoons a day before hydration and a quart sized bag lasts me about 3 months. The only way it goes bad is if once opened, you don't close it and it gets moisture in it...I have not had that issue so far and I've been using the product for just under a year. Feeding as little as you do I'd spend a little more and get the smaller bags as they have a 25 year shelf life. There is no waste and no defrosting. I just portion it out with a measuring spoon that I keep in the baf, put a small amount of fruit juice in it to hydrate it (you can feed it dry or hydrate it with water, but Nike likes the Mango juice I use) and then, in my case, 7 seconds in the microwave to force the hydration.

Re: BirdTricks Natural Feeding System wanted

BirdTricks is crazy expensive but I do love and trust them. They are excellent at breaking things down into understandably steps. I have the electronic version of the cookbook. I wouldn’t feel right sharing the whole electronic version but I could email you the seasonal chop recipes. . I don’t think you can get the actual books anymore. Try eBay. I just bought the elite trick training manual used for $25. And it isn’t actually used.

Re: BirdTricks Natural Feeding System wanted

The thing is you don’t NEED a recipe book to make chop. Completely unnecessary.

Have you ever made chop before?

Re: BirdTricks Natural Feeding System wanted

I know, but so many of my recipes are not a hit that I wonder about alternatives---plus, mine tend to freeze poorly! I end up wasting a lot of money on fresh produce that doesn't keep well and my bird doesn't like it much even though I keep trying. It may just be that I have a very picky bird...I cook well for humans lol...
