Hi Puffin
Baked Pumpkin

Cut a 3-inch circle around the stem and remove. Then remove the seeds. (Use the seeds for pumpkin seed recipes.) Placing the pumpkin on a cookie sheet, bake for 1-1 ½ hours or until it is tender. Pierce with a fork to check if it is done.
You can also cut the pumpkin in quarters and place face down on a buttered cookie sheet. Cool. Use the leftover pumpkin in recipes or serve as is. You can freeze the leftovers.
This is an excellent food for weaning baby birds and for parent birds feeding babies. I have a friend who serves this on top of Zwieback teething cookies. She will sometimes soak the Zwieback and then add it into the mix.
For older birds who are hard to get interested in new foods, I have found that sprinkling millet or chopped nuts on top will encourage them to eat.

TIP: At Halloween, buy an extra pumpkin for your bird. While the kids are busy carving theirs, you can cook one for your bird. Save the seeds for an extra treat.

I want to thank you again for all the love and supporting votes you have been giving me each and everyday! I just couldn't have done it without you!
Wishing you a great day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses! Love,Dixie
