6 Replies and 2249 Views Tasty Treats  2249  6 Started by  J & S Today I made four tasty treats for my Hobbits. All you need is a stick from parrot safe wood or a wooden spoon, Tidymix, a few nuts, egg whites. Mix the seed, nuts and egg whites so everything is 'sticky' Coat the stick with the mixture and bake in a preheated oven for 40 minutes at 120 deg (reduce cooking time if needed) If you want to make it even tastier for your birdies add a little pure honey or Palm Fruit Extract to the mixture, remember to only add a little though. You can also add p...

6 Replies and 2225 Views Easy granola treat sticks (you already have all the ingredients!)  2225  6 Started by  Chase333 Hi All, I have just been experimenting this evening and come up with a very easy way of making the same treat sticks you buy, just cheaper and better! haha, and take 2mins prep and 10-15mins in the oven, then a further 40mins. Basically I just put a couple of handful's of AS-20 into a bowl, broke open some pecans and almonds and put the broken up bits in(not shell obviously), poured over some honey and kept mixxing and adding until it was evenly sticky and sort-of held its shape, then I mixed ...

(Topic has multiple pages1 2 3 )
Hi all. I have been creating fruit and veg cakes for birds and wondered if there would be a call for this service. I am a qualified chef and run a catering business so they have been made to high standards. Nothing less for any of my animals. I am thinking of selling a mixed variety and also putting willow in the box as well. Would you be interested &160;

I've bought some with the bark on - there are lots of picks of peeled willow wreaths on animals toys and some with the dark bark still on. Mine are unpeeled - do you think they're just as safe Stace x

I've never heard of giving birds this - is it good/bad/indifferent Someone also mentioned to me that they'd read a book printed in the 1950s, that said African Greys should have access to canary seed as well as their own. She's been giving her own Grey this, and his feathers have improved dramatically from looking dull and lifeless to being in really g...
