Baby Formula

Posted by: Kitty - smileyaviary@hotmail.com - June 13, 1998

5 cups water
1 cup quick-cooking oatmeal (not 'instant' oats)
1/2 cup raw wheat germ(from health-food store)
1 tbs corn oil
1/2 tsp salt

Mix and cook the above cereal for 5 minutes, remove from stove, and add one 4 1/2-ounce jar of baby vegetables (strained garden vegetables), a combination of peas, carrots and spinach. (For cockatoos and cockatiels increase this amount by 1/3 to 1/2).

1 cup powdered milk
2 cups sunflower meal (from health-food store)

If sunflower meal is not available, purchase raw hulled sunflower kernels and grind them in a blender. Add 2 slices of very dry whole wheat bread mixed with 1 1/2 to 2 cups sunflower kernels, and grind them together in the blender to prevent the kernels from becoming soggy and sticky. The bread will add nutrition to this formula.
