Hi Sunny,
I hope you had a super day yesterday on your hatchday.

Birdie Bread for Overweight Birds

8 cups total of mixed grains and whole flours (wheat,buckwheat,oats,spelt,barley,quinoa etc.) which include 1/2 cup of either soy or chick peas flour for protein or 1/2 cup of corn meal (to make it less fattening)
2 tbs baking powder
2 cups approx. of whole boiled mixed grains
Approx 8 large carrots
1 large red pepper or 2 small ones
1 or 2 papayas, depending on the size - (I add the whole seeds)
1 or 2 slices of melon
2 eggs - I include the egg shells when I have the time to clean them well first
1 or 2 cups unsalted pumpkin seeds
The boiled whole grains are in addition to the 8 cups. I mix the grains,and boil them for 15 minutes in 2 parts water. After I turn the flame off, I let them sit in the covered pan for another 15 minutes or more to absorb all the water.
The quantities can vary, this recipe gives an idea of the proportions to follow, but if the dough is too soft or too dry it can be adjusted with either more flour or fresh foods.
Grind the fresh foods in the food processor, mix them with the eggs and then mix everything together. Bake it in 2 rectangular pans at 350 for about 40-45 minutes.
If calories are not an issue one could add a variety of other foods like bananas, sesame seeds, crushed nuts,raisins passion fruit, prikly pears, etc.Sweet potatoes would be a very good addition.

Wing hugs, Chef Taz
