Aerielle's Birdie Frooty Fruit Salad

Posted by: Aerielle - aerielle@hd1.vsnl.net.in - October 13, 1997

Guava, apple, pear or any fruits of your choice.

Chop up all fruits into palatable pieces excluding seeds of pear and apple. Toss pieces together and take out what you are going to use, then freeze.

I find that my budgies like the guava, apple,and pear recipe best. Budgies will chow down on a salad of about 1 litre of salad sprinkled with 1 eighth tsp of lemon or lime juice.


Ambrosia

Posted by: Kathy Johnson kjohnson@ddc.com February 11, 1997

2 medium oranges peeled
1 small banana cut into slices
20-30 seedless grapes, quartered if your birds are smaller
1 cup strawberries cut in half
1 small apple cut into bird-sized pieces

Combine all ingredients and toss well. Can be frozen until further use.


Beeper's Juice

Posted by: Crystal Diaz - sbrri@hotmail.com - July 23, 2000

Use aprox. 1" cube of your birdie favorite fruits and vegetables (at least 5) and water. Mix all the ingredients in the liquidizer. Shake them until they are a juice. Refrigerate. And if you want, drink it with your bird. Nutritious and delicious. My parrot likes it so much.


Bert's Sunshine Surprise

Posted by: AnnMarie - apagoria@hotmail.com - January 21, 1999

1 box any type sugar-free jello
assorted fruits (dried or fresh)
Seed (any type your bird prefers)
Zupreem fruit pellets

Follow directions on box for jello. Put in refrig. for about one hour. Cube all fruits and add remaining ingredients to jello. Stir. Return to refrig. and allow to finish setting up. Serve one spoonful a day to your tiel or budgie and be sure to take it away after about an hour. Jello is more prone to bacteria and should not be left in the cage all day. Enjoy!!!


Buddy Budgie Bars

Posted by: Diamond S - August 1, 2004

About 1" cube of some of your birds favorite fruits(At least 5 cubes)and 1/2 cup of water. Put it in a tiny glass with some bird seed mixed in. Freeze overnite. Enjoy some yourself too. My parakeet loves to munch on it.


Cornmeal Fantasy

Posted by: Carolyn Swicegood - Carolyn@LandofVos.com - June 14, 1997

If you can boil water and stir, you can make your birds very happy! ! This recipe is similar to a flan or soft pudding. You need only fine ground corn flour, available in most supermarkets. Stir it into boiling water until it starts to thicken, and continue stirring for another minute or two. At this point, you have a soft pudding. If you want to embellish the recipe, you can add pumpkin puree, apple sauce, or baby food fruits or veggies.

I think you may be surprised just how much your birds like this simple food. You'll have no problem finding a feathered friend to "lick the spoon"! My birds just call it YUM! It can be refrigerated for several days or frozen in squares for later use.


Frozen Fruit Surprise

Posted by: Jadette - September 1, 2000

1. Your birds favorite fruits.
2. A blender.
3. An ice cube shaper thing, and a freezer

Okay, so now you take your birds favorite fruits, say, banana and apple with a little cranberry. Take about 1/4 of the fruit and put it aside for now. Put the rest in a blender, and blend until smooth. If it doesn't smooth out as much as you want, you may even add water. Put it in the ice cube shapers, and drop some small, chopped pieces of the fruit you saved into each "cuber". Freeze until frozen. When frozen, take them out and give them to your bird, so they can have a frozen fruity treat with some surprise pieces of fruit inside!


Fruit Smoothies

Posted by: Ashley - Ashes373@aol.com - March 29, 1998

Your birdies favorite fruit

Dice into small pieces and remove any toxic seeds (apple, pear, cherry pits etc). Put into blender or food processor and mix until almost liquid but some chunks still remain. Put mixture into ice cube trays (for smaller birds you can buy small ice cube trays) and put into freezer until frozen. Give to your birdies and let them enjoy!! Especially good for those summer months!!


Fruity Ice

Posted by: Kathy Johnson kjohnson@ddc.com - February 11, 1997

Select several types of fresh fruits, any combination, diced into pieces.

Puree fruits in blender or food processor until smooth and mixed. Pour into ice cube trays, and freeze until solid. Keep frozen, stored in freezer containers or plastic bags. To serve, remove 1-2 cubes per bird, thaw slightly. Some of my birds actually seem to prefer the frozen fruit, especially in summer!


Fruity Ice Smoothie

Posted by: Katie - June 12, 2004

INGREDIENTS:
3 handfuls any type of fruit your bird likes(can be a mixture of fruits, my bird likes apples, raspberries, and strawberries)
1 cup fruit juice

DIRECTIONS: Put fruit juice and fruit in a blender and blend completely on high. Freeze half of the mixture in an ice cube tray-put the other half in a container and keep in the refrigerator.

When the first half of the mixture is frozen, crush in either a slushy maker or wrap it in a towel and bash it with a rolling pin. Put the crushed portion into a dish or cub, and add the refrigerated portion. Mix and serve to your bird!!!


"Gerbird" Fruits and Veggies Sauce

Posted by: Christine - AnimalPerson101@hotmail.com - January 16, 2002

Things you'll need:
-Baby food with bananas (Bananasauce)
-Baby food with apples (Applesauce)
-Baby food with potatoes (Potatosauce)
-Baby food with carrots (carrotsauce)
-Dried and wet fresh fruits and vegetables like bananas,coconut, carrots etc.,.(any fruits and veggies that are NOT toxic to birds).
-Nuts and seeds (Not toxic to birds)

You can use any of those baby foods listed. You can combine baby food or just use one. No cooking involved. Do not cook. Put the baby food into a bowl and mix it with the fruits, veggies, seeds and nuts and it is ready to serve. Make sure you don't leave it out for more than an hour because it will spoil (This happens with fresh fruits and veggies and baby food). All of my birds and rats love this and hopefully your bird will love it too. My conure even likes to take things from his food dish and dip it in the sauce!
