1/2 cup cooked
white or brown rice
1/4 cup dry monkey chow, ground in a blender
1/4 cup Sun Maid Fruit Bits, soaked overnight
2 tablespoons Bag O’Bugs
Mix ingredients together
and serve immediately. Change at least twice a day to make sure your birds
don’t digest any soured foods. You can replace the Bag O’
bugs with live insects.
1 box Jiffy Corn
1 egg (you can include the shell)
1/3 cup milk
1 cup vegetables
Heat oven to 400
and grease 8" x 8" baking pan or muffin tin. Mix the corn bread
mix, egg, and milk in a bowl. Next mix in the vegetables. Pour into baking
pan or muffin tins. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes (until light golden brown).
Freeze unused bread in a zip lock bag and microwave to reheat.
You can vary this
recipe by substituting the vegetables with your birds favorite food, peppers,
crushed red pepper, etc.

1 2/3 cup water
1 cup cous-cous
1 medium tomato (or a handful of cherry/grape tomatoes)
1 small onion (or 4-5 spring onions, if you prefer)
1/2 green pepper
1/2 sweet red pepper
1/2 cup corn (frozen or fresh off the cob)
2 cloves garlic
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp pepper
1 1/2 tsp basil, oregano, or Italian seasoning
1 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
First, boil water.
When water boils, stir in cous-cous, cover, and *remove from heat*. Allow
to sit for five minutes. While cous-cous soaks, dice tomatoes, onion, and
peppers. Combine with remaining ingredients and saute lightly (adding a
little butter, margarine, or olive oil, if necessary). When cous-cous has
soaked up all water, combine with veggies, stir, and serve to your feathered
friend according to size. Freezes well and may be served hot or cold.
1 small package shell
or elbow noodles
1 can Hot Chili Beans
Cook noodles as directed
on package. Drain noodles and return to pan. Add chili beans and warm
up. I freeze the remaining portion in an ice cube tray, then move the
"cubes" to a freezer bag for future use. To heat frozen cubes,
place the amount necessary in a microwave safe dish and microwave on high
for 3 to 4 minutes.
You can substitue
veggies or other kinds of food for the beans.
1 cup rice, uncooked
1 cup small pasta (ie, shells, macaroni, wheels, bows), uncooked
2 cups mixed veggies or cooked beans, or mixture of both
Cook rice as directed
on box. Cook up pasta and drain. Mix the rice, pasta, and veggies/beans
in a bowl. I also season this with some crushed red pepper or cayenne
pepper.Serve to your birds. You can freeze the unused portion and warm
up to serve at a later time.

1 cup pellets
1 cup flour (whole wheat or half whole wheat/half unbleached)
5 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 tbsp oil
1 1/4 cup water
2 tbsp honey
1/2 cup (or more) veggies
1/4 cup seed (hulled is better)
1-2 tbsp seed
Pulverize the pellets, egg (with shell), and about half
the water in a blender. Mix the rest of the ingredients except the 1-2
tablespoons of seed and add the blender's concoction. The rest of the
water is used to rinse out the blender. Once the ingredients have been
mixed, pour into a greased casserole dish. Sprinkle the remaining seeds
on top. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 40-50 minutes.
It is recommended that half be made at a time in a 9
by 9 dish. That way it is thinner (more birdy-sized!)
2 pieces of bread
1 slice of cheese (American, Swiss, or your bird's choice)
Toast two pieces
of bread, a multigrain or whole wheat may be a favorite of your birds,
and put a slice of American, Swiss, or other flavor of cheese your birds
like, between the slices and let melt. Cut into little mini sandwiches
for your birds. If you have a toaster oven, you can put the cheese on
one of the slices of bread to melt in the toaster oven. My birds love
their cheese sandwiches!!
Note: Since birds are lactose intolerant, you would not
want to give them too much cheese over several days. The cheese is a good
source of calcium.
