Tinkerbell Mash, the best ever food for your birdie

Tinkerbell Mash, the best ever food for your birdie.

A food that is made with love and care and with none of the additives that come in a box.

This is how I made it, at least for Tinkerbell Mash Batch 7.

Take a look, you might think of making it too.
If you have not known of me, the photos that you see here might be somewhat surprising to you.




Warmest regards

ps

You know why the mash I made need to be kept in the freezer?
With only one baggie at a time being thawed and must be kept in the fridge as well?

Whereas what you buy in a box need not be in the freezer? Here is why

From
Hand of Clod //3 hour and day old Mash // Outdoor hide&seek recalls
shanlung: Hand of Clod //3 hour and day old Mash // Outdoor hide&seek recalls



Here is the list of the common additives found in pellets.

Do have fun reading that.


Ethoxyquin: Is listed and identified as a harsh hazardous chemical by OSHA. It was originally used to preserve rubber. This is not allowed in human food and some feel it is not a chemical that they want in their bird food. The FDA has asked manufacturers for voluntary reduction in its use in pet foods and is in the process of deciding whether or not to ban the use of it altogether. Bird's bodies can not get rid of it like a dog or cat and it then builds up and causes problems. Ethoxyquin promotes kidney carcinogenesis, significantly increases the incidence of stomach tumors, enhanced bladder carcinogenesis and urinary bladder carcinogenesis. Cancers of this type are the most lethal and fastest acting, the swiftest effects being seen among animals.

Artificial Colors: Most people are aware of toxic side effects of artificial colors and flavors from coal tar derivatives such as Red #40, a possible carcinogen, and Yellow #6, which causes sensitivity to fatal viruses in animals. Artificial colors DO cause yellow feather discoloration in Eclectus.

BHT/BHA: These petroleum products are used to stabilize fats in foods. In the process of metabolizing BHA and BHT, chemical changes occur in the body. These changes have caused reduced growth rates and they inhibit white blood cell stimulation. In pets, they can exhibit reactions such as skin blisters, hemorrhaging of the eye, weakness, discomfort in breathing, a reduction of the body's own antioxidant enzyme, glutathione peroxidase and may cause cancer. According to Dr. Wendell Belfield, DVM, a practicing vet for some 26 years, both BHA and BHT are known to cause liver and kidney dysfunction and are banned in some European countries.

Propylene Glycol: Used as a de-icing fluid for airplanes, this chemical is added to food and skin products to maintain texture and moisture as well as inhibiting bacteria growth in products. It also inhibits the growth of friendly bacteria in the digestive system by decreasing the amount of moisture in the intestinal tract leading to constipation and cancer. It can affect the liver and kidneys and causes the destruction of red blood cells.

Salt: Added as a preservative, salt can irritate the stomach lining, cause increased thirst and aggravate heart and kidney problems through fluid retention.

Sodium Nitrite: Used in the curing of meats, this substance participates in a chemical reaction in the body that becomes carcinogenic. It is used also in pet foods to add color.

Sugar and other Sweeteners: The most common sweeteners in pet/bird foods are beet sugar, corn sugar, molasses and sucrose. They are used as preservatives and have the side effect of creating sugar addicts in pets. They require almost no digestion and are rapidly absorbed into the blood stream. These will provide sugar highs (just as humans experience) and subsequent lows (moodiness), inhibit the proper growth of friendly intestinal bacteria and they virtually shut down the digestive system while being processed. Sugar can also contribute to diabetes and hypoglycemia, cataract development, obesity and arthritis.

Go to your cupboard and get your pellets out and find out how many of these additives are in the brand you buy. If there is something else on the ingredients list and you don't know what it is, FIND OUT.

Re: Tinkerbell Mash, the best ever food for your birdie

Great recipe, I like the sprouting idea! Would you recommend this as a daily supplement (like with fruits and veggies), in lieu of pellets/seeds or mixed in with them? It seems a fantastic source of protein and fiber! I was going to start my bird on Harrison's High Potency, should I go this route instead?

Re: Tinkerbell Mash, the best ever food for your birdie

Tinkerbell Mash is configured as a good basic diet, to be fed daily with vege salad and fruits. You have seen from the many photos how Tinkerbell Mash is made explicitly.

It cannot be help if one think that Tinkerbell Mash is so good that it appeared more as a parrot health supplement and not just a good basic diet that it actually is.

At least you all know the only stuff not in Tinkerbell Mash will be all those icky additives commercial pellets are chocked full off. But do your precious birdies need those Ethoxyquin and Artificial Colors and BHT/BHA and Propylene Glycol in those commecial parrot pellets that need no freezing or refridgeration?

Seeds were also given as well, as treats and at foraging points.

You might like to see how this was done, in simple ways that add meaning and fun to the life of the birdie. And you might chose to do the same too.

Re: Tinkerbell Mash, the best ever food for your birdie

Are there any pellets on the market that don't have all those toxins in them?

Re: Tinkerbell Mash, the best ever food for your birdie

Thought folks might like to know I made Tinkerbell Kitty Mash for my kitties too.

Here is how
shanlung: Pakistan//Tinkerbell Kitty Mash//Dommie at the beach Ramadhan 2010 //Villa walkabout 2

I decided no ethoxyquin, or petroleum by products or defreezing stuff for kittiy as well.

Those who love those ickky stuff in their beastie or birdie crunchy kipples that need no freezer and fridge should ignore me totally and go on giving those stuff to their hearts desire so conveniently out of a box.

Since leaving Oman and coming back to Singapore and my Ivan who have been with us for 16 years since Hongkong days, a batch of kitty mash was made for him.

He loves it too.


Warmest regards
