Thank you for the recipe and photo directions. I made a mixture of something similar a couple of days ago. I didn't know you could freeze the rice/pasta. I've been making a new batch everyday...lol

Re: Cook, portion + freeze (My recipe)

I make something similar, but I add barley, oatmeal, fresh broccoli/green beans/carrots/peppers/etc. and sometimes orange juice to loosen it up if it's too thick.

The fids love this!

Re: Cook, portion + freeze (My recipe)

Ok I have been reading about this chop/slop/mash that people are making for their birds. Do Sun conures eat this? How much would you offer them?? My SC doesn't eat what seems like much to me throughout the day.... I would hate to make this huge batch and then have it take up most of my freezer for the longest time.

Does anyone have a smaller size reciepe they could share. I can see the advantage of time saving, as I wouldn't have to chop up tiny bits of fruits and veggies every day, could just serve this with a supplement of what ever veggies we were eating at dinner.

Thanks in advance!
Beth

Re: Cook, portion + freeze (My recipe)

Got to be careful with red kidney beans, not cooking them properly can render them toxic. Usually cook them separately for longer and change the water to avoid this..I avoid them altogether!

Yowser! Thank you so much for that information, I had absolutley NO clue about that.

I will now try and find a different soup mix (sans red kidney beans) for my recipe.

Some scary stuff!!

I have a green cheek that eats something similar to this, just make up a little and freeze in tablespoon size portions I give my little bird one "birdy ball" in the am still semi frozen and its usually gone within a couple hours. I do more of a mash with more sweet potato, I also put some peanut butter in it, along with a bunch of other stuff, apples, broccoli, carrots, etc. Hardest part is keeping my 4yr old human child from eating it all while Im making it! I need to make a new batch today and will add the beans and mix in some different spices to some smaller batches (with same base mix for all) then freeze and mix all the birdy balls into one bag so she can get a different random flavor all the time!
Its really easy to do. Good luck!

Thank YOU!

Mine all love green chillies as well. Come to think of it, they like all sorts of hot peppers.

Re: Cook, portion + freeze (My recipe)

Ok I'm totally lost here. I have a U2. And she's just being introduced to veggies. I'm not even sure how much she eats as a lot of her food is on the bottom tray. S this mixture is Soft ? Am I following this. Ad has lots of good things. Would this be a diet for mine?

Re: Cook, portion + freeze (My recipe)

Not a cook here but will try. Anyone know if oatmeal is okay for parrots? I am thinking about adding crushed pellets so its more nutritional

Re: Cook, portion + freeze (My recipe)

Yes, oatmeal is fine.

JerseyWendy, I used to use the same bag of mixed bean soup! But then after reading about the toxins found in various beans, especially kidney beans, I only use the healthy variety now... i.e. those that you find in a health food store. Adzuki, mung, garbonzo, lentils and sprouting peas.



Back when I used the mixed bean soup, I added other ingredients that were mostly all fresh and would occasionally add in sprouted seeds. Fed this to my bourkes, budgies, cockatiel and conures!








I cook tiwce as much grains as legumes, then try to add in about the same amount of mixed fresh vegetables as grains and legumes, then a small amount of fruits... which most often ended up being mixed fruit juice! My goal was to provide ~15% healthy legumes, ~30% healthy grains (I use a few different types), 45% vegetables and 10% fruits.


This diet could then be tailored to different species dietary needs, and if need be, one could always add in supplements or spices prior to feeding.



This is fed in addition to pellets and seeds and the occasional cooked eggs.
