Hi Chyna
Millet Mac and Cheese

I was given a female cockatiel that never ate anything but millet before she came to live with me. She was especially stubborn when it came to trying new things. Using this recipe, I got her eating new foods in no time at all. This is a great one for getting small to medium-size birds to try new foods. For larger birds, try chopped sunflowers or pistachio nuts.

1 box any brand macaroni and cheese ¼ cup grated carrots
½ cup Kaytee pellets ¼ cup chopped broccoli
½ cup millet

Make the macaroni and cheese according to the instructions on the box. Add in the pellets and grated carrots. Sprinkle the millet on top, lightly pushing it into the macaroni with the back of a spoon. (My tiels loved the millet and started eating that, but because it was pushed into the macaroni and cheese, they ended up having to eat some of that as well. Now the same tiels will eat anything that I give them.) Putting millet in this dish will entice even the pickiest of birds. (You can also try mega millet for larger birds.)

HELPFUL HINT: If you don't have broccoli, you can add cauliflower or asparagus instead.
