In addition to fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains are also very good for your pet bird. One great way to get some of these nutritious food sources into your pet’s diet is to try making your pet some delicious oatmeal chewy treats!
- 1 cup dry oatmeal
- 1 raw egg
- Crumbled egg shells (optional)
- 2-3 tablespoons honey
Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl, the crumbled egg shells add calcium for your pet but they are totally optional. Spread the mixture onto a cookie sheet that has been greased with a small amount of vegetable oil, and bake it in an oven heated to 350 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes or until set.
Once done, take the cookie sheet out and let it cool before cutting the oatmeal mixture into small, bite-sized pieces. Refrigerate any uneaten treats for up to 3 days.
Thank you to The Spruce Pets for this tasty bird treat.
