I am new here and I thought I would share my boys favorite cooked meal. This recipe is from a local amazon breeder but my Igbo loves it. we ALWAYS add shredded or finely chopped veggies to his as he normally won't eat veggies willingly.

1/2 cup small vegetable pasta ( like small shells)
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup millet
1/4 cup cous cous
1/4 cup cracked wheat
1/2 cup Brown's Extreme! Fruit & Nut Cockatiel Treat (or any seed mix you like)

Store dry mix in the refrigerator or freezer.

To prepare:

Bring 1/2 cup water to a boil. Add 1/4 cup of dry mix. Stir, return to boil then reduce to low and cook about 4-5 minutes, until liquid is absorbed and pasta is tender. Cool slightly, serve warm OR -better yet, I like to add some frozen mixed vegetables to the mix as soon as it is done and still very hot. The frozen veggies thaw while cooling the mix. Birds get their favorite warm treat and a healthy serving of vegetables too!

Bacteria grows very quickly on fresh soft, and especially cooked foods. Never leave uneaten soft foods in the cage for more than 4 hours - less on warm days.

Store cooked mix in refrigerator no more than 1-2 days, or freeze.

Depending on the number of birds you have you may wish to double or even triple the ingredients.

Thankyou Troy, this sounds great. I've just given away some fruity rice mix as well because jasper wasn't keen, I could have used it in the recipe. I'll try it soon though and get some smaller pasta shells  :thumbsup:

Jules if the pasta is bigger I always take my handy rolling pin I use for pie crusts and break the pasta into smaller pieces. My Igbo doesn't care if it is broken. He is defiantly food motivated.
I attached a picture of my dry mix then once I add my veggies to it. I have to mince up my veggies in a food processor so they are small enough that he can't toss them to the floor for the dogs to eat. :big grin:
