Soft Food Medley (a.k.a. - "Glop")


Cook these according to package directions (except for fresh broccoli and carrots) and mix together. Freeze portions into amounts you can use in a day or two.

Omit the egg shells, pellets and baby food, add sauce and seasonings, and enjoy a healthy meal for people with your pet birds!

  • Brown Rice (cooked)
  • Pearled Barley (cooked)
  • Bulgur Wheat (cooked)
  • Steel Cut Oats (cooked)
  • Hulled Millet (cooked)
  • Quinoa (cooked)
  • Whole wheat berries (cooked)
  • Whole Wheat Spaghetti (cooked)
  • Tri-colored Pasta (cooked)

Quick Birdie Bread

  • 2 boxes Jiffy Corn Bread
  • 2/3 cup Orange Juice with Calcium
  • 1/4 cup Brewer's yeast
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1/3 cup Untoasted Wheat Germ

Mix together all ingredients in large bowl. Adjust liquid using more juice, eggs or baby food as needed.  Pour into 2-3 greased 8" X 8" pans and bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes (more or less depending upon pan and amounts in pan) until fully cooked.

I use this basic recipe and add nonfruit Finch or Parakeet Pellets, chopped broccoli and carrots, mixed veggie baby food, rolled oats, and other items. Then I bake, cut and freeze until ready for use.
