    My caiques ate most everything I offered but they especially liked when I added starches like brown rice, pinto beans, chic peas and green peas.

    Mine have gone off raw veg.

    But they will gulp down all of my Fruit n veg smoothie and beg for more

    Recipe: Kale, Broccoli, spinach, carrot ( 60% veg), then apple orange blueberries, Pineapple etc the rest

    Nothing removed, nothing wasted

    Place in blender with a little water

    Press Button A

    They will actually drink this all day and leave their water dish untouched

    My hard rules are giving them each:
    1 bird muffin (I use mini muffin tins)
    1 orange vegetable (sweet potato, butternut squash, carrot)
    I try to do half vegetable and half fruit.

    I do six bowls at a time as my eckie gets this too. My current mix includes:
    fennel
    blueberries
    zucchini
    apple
    persimmons
    carrot
    Peas
    Banana

    The bird muffin always, without question, goes first. I can guarantee Zoey will have an empty bowl at the end of the day. Kate will have left the fennel and zucchini. I try not to give additional grain as they get that from their pellets.

    It should be enough for a few batches, but it halves very easily. I freeze them in plastic bags and take them out as needed.

    2 Cups Millet Flour
    1 Cup Flaxseed Meal
    1/2 Cup Pea Protein Powder
    1/2 Cup Pumpkin Seed
    1/2 Cup Sunflower Seed
    1/2 Cup Chopped Walnuts
    3 tablespoons Chia Seeds
    2 tablespoons Powdered Cinnamon
    1 tablespoon Powdered Ginger
    1 tablespoon Powdered Lemon Peel
    2 eggs
    2 cups unsweetened applesauce (other fruit puree works too)
    1 cup shredded carrots (I've also used dried fruits or coconut)
    350 Degrees until a toothpick comes out clean.
