Sally Blanchard's ''Famous Glop'' Recipe
The following recipe feeds Sally's four parrots of various sizes and appetites for their morning meal. ''Glop'' also makes a great hand weaning food to finger feed your baby.
Anything that is nutritious can be added to the ''Glop'' for variety in texture, color, and shapes. I will feed it plain or mix one or more of the following: finely chopped collard (mustard or turnip) greens, kale or broccoli flowers, grated carrots, wheat germ, oat bran, sugar free breakfast cereal, low salt V8 juice (Splash), grated tofu - cheese, non-fat cottage cheese, chopped nuts or raisins, chopped very hard boiled egg, pasta, brown rice, well cooked chopped chicken, powdered pellets.
Editor's Note: Remember that any soft food will develop bacteria if left too long in the cage -remove within (2) hours. Serve each batch fresh. Never use leftovers as ingredients. If you only have one bird and want to make the whole batch, the ' Glop' can be rolled into balls or placed in ice cube trays and frozen. Thaw, as needed but be careful not to overcook. Add any supplement after heating.
