Hey guys!
Some of you may have seen my pellet threads and my interest in making my own for my birds. I will buy most ingredients fresh with the exceptions of the flowers and herbs.
Then purée the veggies, flowers, hearts etc. into a paste then dehydrate them.
Or should they be baked? Nah!
Here’s the ingredients:
Veggies: Butternut squash/acorn squash/pumpkin/sweet potato. At least two of these.
Greens: Swiss chard/arugula
Grains: Mung beans/ quinoa
Flowers: Chamomile, calendula, lavender, rose hips, and raspberry leaf.
Herbs: Herb mix from Twin Beaks.
Milk Thistle.
Other: Kelp/Nori/Bee pollen/chia/Flax/ cayenne/ crushed chilies
Natural preservatives: Lemon peel/orange peel/Rosemary

Any advice is very much appreciated!!

Maybe worth the time to have the final product checked to determine, which active ingredients still exist and have not turned into filler. Possible at the Science School of a local College?

Your ingredients look to be well conceived.
