Not Doing Well…

Posted on

Well, my goal of finishing my new page for healthy foods for birds isn’t going well. Real life gets to you sometimes and it’s a bit hard to get things done when you are constantly busy. I’ll just have to try to squeeze it into my busy schedule, and set aside some more time for the birds because I haven’t been sticking to giving them a healthy diet lately.

This morning though I’ll be making them a really yummy meal which will probably include some new things they haven’t try before. I was planning on mixing in some hard-boiled eggs, but that idea quickly faded away as I realized there were no eggs left.

What I’m thinking of putting in are some frozen veggies (Corn, Peas, & Carrots), apples, pears, blackberries, green peppers, red peppers, and oranges. Then I will probably add in a teaspoon of Clay-Cal, some Wheat Germ and maybe some crushed oyster shells. It will all depend on what I have available though.

Eggs!

Out of those ingredients, they haven’t yet tried:

  • Corn
  • Peas
  • Pears
  • Blackberries
  • Oranges

Hopefully their curiosity will get the better of them and they will try out some of the new things I’ll be offering.

Some Goodies for the Birds

Posted on

Today I decided to make a nice and yummy combination for the birds to eat for dinner to see if they would like to have some. My idea actually worked! They dug right in like champs and stuffed their faces. What I made was a combination of baby spinach, apples, carrots and green peppers for wet food. Then there was another little mixture I made to add to it which contained cinnamon, wheat germ, some seeds, crushed oyster shell and some charcoal. After I mixed the wet food and rinsed it thoroughly I drained it well and mixed it with the dry mixture. I put some in the freezer to save for tomorrow, so they can have it for dinner once again. It has such a strong smell with the cinnamon and green pepper mix, I don’t know what to think of it!

On a side note: Rocky is still doing really good, he is outside more frequently now, and is still behaving very nicely indoors. I’m pretty sure that the new dog house is going to be built soon. Maybe tomorrow we will hear news about it. 🙂
