It’s time to put on those oven gloves and dig out the chopping board, as November 1st is Go Cook For Your Pet Day, so get cooking for your Parrot.
Here all the foods you can cook.
Dot Schwarz likes cooking for her Parrots too.
The day was started by cookforyourpets.com. They want people to give their companions more attention to their diet and to them in general. They think their pets deserve it, and we agree.
Food for your Parrot
Here are some foods you can cook for your Parrot. Please remember when cooking that overheated non-stick cookware releases fumes that are toxic to pet birds and Parrots.
Birdy Banquet combines fruits, vegetables, pasta, beans and a vitamin and mineral supplement to create an exciting meal full of different flavours and textures. All you need to do is add water and heat.
The Tidymix Pulse and Rice Soaking Mix has a yummy mixture of brown rice and whole wheat grain, as well as 11 different pulses, peas and lentils. To prepare this protein rich food soak it for 12 hours, rinse thoroughly then either feed it raw or soften further in a pan or microwave. Rinse under cold water and leave to cool, then feed it to your Parrot.
The Instant Rice and Fruit Mix has assorted fruits, peanuts and coconuts. Mix it with boiling water at a ratio of 1:1 and allow it to cool before serving. Your Parrot is sure to enjoy this easy to prepare mix.
The Instant Pasta Treat is suitable for most bird types too. Again all you need to do is mix it with boiling water and then let it cool before serving it to your Parrot.
There are two more beak-wateringly good flavours of noodles for you to choose from.
The Hawaiian Sweet Noodle Mix contain pasta, papaya, pineapple and raisins and other ingredients whilst the Mexican Spicy Noodle Mix has more vegetables such as peas, beans and carrots.
Both noodle mixes microwave in minutes, all you need to do is pour the contents of the sachet into a microwavable bowl, add 50ml of water, mix well and then heat in the microwave for 3 minutes. Once it’s cooled you can serve it up to your Parrot.
The Gourmet Classic Quick Cook Veggie Treat has lots of scrumptious vegetables such as peas, leek and kidney beans. Mix in boiled or hot water and within a few minutes the soft and healthy meal will be ready for your Parrot to eat. Give each bird you own a couple of spoonfuls.
The Harrison’s Bird Bread comes in a selection of three different flavours, Original, Millet and Flax or Hot Pepper.
The three flavours come with instructions for you to dish up the lovely mix, but put simply, all you need to do is add an egg, oil and some water and then pop it in the oven. It can be enjoyed by birds of all ages, from chicks to adults.
