Recipe by Pier-Luc
– 1 cup brown rice
– 2 cups of Quinoa
– 2 cups of shelled millet
– 1 tbsp. soft oregano
– 1 tbsp. basil
– 3 cups of water
– 1 tbsp. chicken broth
Mix the dry ingredients and cover them with water and broth. Bring to a boil,
reduce and cook for 10 minutes. Cool before making small portions for the
Mix in equal quantities:
– 2 cups of crushed cereal (cheerios or Shredded Wheat…)
– 2 cups crushed oat granules or cereal
– 2 cups of assorted parrot seeds
Add about 1 1/4 cups honey, and adjust until the mixture is sticky but not too much liquid. You could replace the honey with corn syrup. On a covered cookie sheet with waxed paper deposit the preparation. Cook over very low heat 200-225 degrees for 45 minutes about.
Half cooked, cut into squares and finish cooking. When the cookies are still
hot, you could drill a hole to hang them on a toy or insert a craft stick and offer it as a reward.
– 350 gr of flour
– 1/4 liter of water
– a tablespoon of honey, peanut butter, applesauce, or any other a mash of any kind …
– a teaspoon of oil (peanut, sunflower, but rapeseed is better because less fat) You mix it all up, this is your “base”. You add whatever you want.
I put: molded for parrot, seed mixture for parrot, seed mixture + mold for parakeet, mash with eggs, dried fruits (mango, papaya, pineapple, grapes …), apple pieces, and orange juice.
Step by step homemade nutriberries;
A seed + feed mixture, powdered feed, and dried fruits:
Peel and cut the apple into coarse cubes after removing the core. Put them in a saucepan with half a cup of water.
Bring everything over high heat, stirring regularly, and add water if it has evaporated.
When the pieces are no longer discernible and you have a kind of big compote, turn off the heat and pass the compote through the drainer.
Once well-drained, pass the compote into a blender to obtain a smooth mixture without lumps. Then add the seeds, dried fruits, and powdered feed.
For an apple, I have put two teaspoons of ground powder for 10 of seed + ground mixture and two of
fruits (the feed is nutri bird’s B14 for wavy).
Mix everything until everything is well clumped so that small clumps are formed. all alone (in my photo I packed everything so you can’t see it).
Then form small balls (or any shape that suits you but avoid too many thick, i.e. no more than 1cm). Spend the 20 minutes in the oven thermostat 4 (150 °) with the door open to let out moisture and you get good little homemade nutriberries.
at this stage, they are still very soft at heart. You can give them like this if your bird likes soft treats, but you can also let them air dry overnight so that they finish drying through the core, they will then be harder.
In a bowl put flour and add water until you have a very sticky dough. The inside throws a little of everything. Wheat seeds, millet, barley, pieces of apple, and carrot, and all of which are good for your birds. Add honey (a little).
Then pour into small molds like plastic molds for cakes (the plastic trays with a dozen molds). Plant a small cut stick in the garden and bake for 20 minutes. Here are beautiful lollipops to snack.
– 3/4 cup pumpkin
– 2 tbsp. 1 teaspoon ground cuttlebone
– 1/3 cup lovebird seed
– 1/3 cup of ground roudy mash
– 1/3 cup of fruit blend
– 1/3 cup of lafeber parakeet feed
– 1/3 cup ground lafeber mash
We mix all that and we shape it into a ball. Leather not too hard … Not too long.
