I have revised my bean mix. Or maybe you could say it's evolving. I doubled the rice and quinoa and eliminated the baby lima beans. I don't put the lentils and the peas in 'till after the overnight soak and first cook. Some times I put pasta in. Also I have switched to Zupreem natural pellets.

I buy bags of dried beans for about $1.

1/2 cup pinto beans
1/2 cup navy beans (whits beans)
1/2 cup Garbonzo Beans (chick peas)
1/2 cup barley (optional)

Soak all these overnight. next morning rinse soaked beans and return to the pot with the water level about 2 or 3 inches higher than the beans. Cook on stove top at medium heat for about 30 mins. Then add

1/2 cup split peas
1/2 cup lentils
1 cup brown or wild rice

cook for an additional 20 mins then add

1/2 cup Quinoa
1/2 cup hulled millet (optional)

cook for an additional 20 min.
After it's done cooking eliminate any excess moisture and add 2 cups Zupreem Natural Diet.

I found a recipe for nutriberries:

Homemade Nutri~Berries

1 C dried fruit of your choice
2 TB coconut
1/2 c old fashioned oatmeal, uncooked
1/4 c seed mix of any kind
1/4 c pellets, your choice
2 TB honey or molasses

Put first 3 items in a blender/food processor and blend. Add the rest of the ingredients--it will be sticky! On a greased or parchment paper lined cookie sheet, roll balls of various sizes and put 1" apart. Bake at 325 degrees for 15-20 min. Check at 15 min to make sure they are not brown, but set. Cool and store in a tightly covered jar.

have not tried it yet, gonna try it shortly

I have a recipe i tried for my tiels and they love it so i want to share
Birdy Rice balls

Cooked rice
dried fruit of your choice (i used cranberries, raisons, and papaya)
a little bit of cinnamon

put it all into a blender and then roll into little balls and cover them and put them in the fridge for a little while. after theyve cooled off a bit and have held their shape, you can serve them to the birds

here's a photo of them

i use white rice, but brown rice is better i think... healthier. but you need to add dried fruit and cinnamon to it... kinda like a birdy rice pudding lol

Not sure this is a recipe, but it was time to clean out the cabinets, so I threw a bunch of stuff together. here goes.....

This made a lot, the house still smells.

1 box jiffy corn bread mix
3 cups jiffy baking mix
6 eggs, with shells washed.
6 cups premium hookbill seed mix (it has bits of dried fruit in it)
3 cups chopped dried fruit
6 dried pineapple slices chopped
1 bag stuffing mix
2 cups cooking oats
1 cup wheat germ
1 can corn drained
1 can mixed veggies (green beans, limas, corn, carrots) not drained
4 squash washed and chopped
1 banana with peel intact, washed
2 dollops of peanut butter
a few drops of bird vitamins
a couple tablespoons of scraped cuttle bone
a couple shakes of cinnamon
a couple shakes of garlic powder
a couple shakes of parsley flakes

In a large bowl mix all dry ingredients & squash
in food processor mix canned veggies, banana, peanut butter, vitamins, and eggs until pureed
pour wet over dried and mix, add water until all the dry is moist, but not wet. about the consistency of cookie batter.

scoop into regular sized greased muffin baking tins and bake at 350 until a toothpick comes out clean, cool, and bag. Freeze bags of muffins until ready to serve. Feed 1/2 muffin for every 4 cockatiels or other small bird, 1/2 muffin for a large parrot.

wow these are all great recipees, now if i could get my stubborn birds to eat it, instead of buring it under newspaper or dumping the dish, anyone have a clew as how to get birds to try new things, my birds go crazy over ricecrispies but no matter what i do i havent gotten them to try anything else. ive even got most of the recipees from Cockatiel Cottage in a recipee book so that if i find a hit i dont have to hunt it down again.
