Serious success, folks! I'm elated that she likes it, and I feel good about the ingredients!

Of course she wanted to demolish her own instead of the one I checked for done. She ate about half of it without taking a breath...

3oz cornmeal
3oz masa
3oz whole wheat flour
1.5oz wheat pastry flour
1 t powder
.5 t soda
Pinch salt

2 eggs
.5 c pureed fruit (papaya, passion, plantain, lots of things she didn't want to eat.... Went into the blender and into the freezer.)
.5 c water
1 c diced peppers
1 c mustard greens
2 T hemp seeds
3 T mix of pepitas, dried papaya, dried pineapple and almond slivers that I keep for treats

Oils:
.5 t grapeseed
.5 t coconut
.5 t red palm
.5 t rice bran.

10 muffins, (20 servings)

They taste good, but too sweet for me! Mine have cheese, onion and jalapeños.

Thanks guys! I just realized that's the first picture of her new flight feathers. You guys should see the blues on her wings, it's jaw dropping. I still worry about her diet, but this is a huge relief. I think will be able to hide lots of good things she doesn't like other ways.

They´re beautiful! My favourtie part of sharing my home with birds, and seeing other birds in general is watching them in flight. It´s wonderful. They are so majestic with their wings :)

I agree! She was struggling with the cut ones today after her bath, trying to preen, and grab them with her foot to hold them still. They're so short, and they must poke her until she can get them frayed and softer on the ends. We flap and practice "zooms" and she hop-flapped from the couch to her stand the other day. I'm excited to see her get some confidence and a tiny bit of independence! I need to make an update in the monologues, there have been many little achievements lately!

That looks like one happy birdie! So gorgeous! Glad she liked your birdie bread, I'll have to give it a go sometime!
